Can't Approve Eagle Palm

A Scout has earned an Eagle Palm after his Eagle board of review. All of the requirements are checked as approved. There is no checkbox to allow approval of the palm. As a result, the palm does not show up in the needs purchasing report or the advancement report.

Sincerely,
Elizabeth Link

Has the Eagle Scout rank been approved by National yet?

Dear Jennifer,

Yes, National has approved the Eagle rank.

Dear Jennifer,

It’s funny, but I don’t remember having this problem for the palms that were earned at the board of review. (Maybe I have blocked that out.)

no this is new - no idea

The approval logic is a little different for Palms that are earned at the same time as the Eagle rank.

Dear Stephen,

The problem is with palms earned after the board of review. Apparently this is a new bug.

Sincerely,
Elizabeth

@ElizabethLink - my apologies that is what you had stated. I obviously need to either have the glasses on or more coffee or both actually. :slight_smile:

Dear Stephen,

No worries. I was surprised that the approval process is separate for palms earned at the board of review compared to after. You don’t see that when you work with Scoutbook.

@Stephen_Hornak the Approve checkbox is gone

@DonovanMcNeil - thank you. let me back out my lack reading skills today. Will keep the attempt at multi-tasking to a minimum today. :slight_smile:

@ElizabethLink Are you able to use the Patrol or Troop-level Needs Approval Report to mark Eagle Palms as Approved?

Dear Jennifer,

That works! Thank you. I’m sorry I didn’t think of that .
