We use the invitation link in Invitation Manager to have scouts apply electronically to join our troop. This works great for brand new scouts, but we were told by our local council that this does not work correctly for Webelos that need to join our troop and that paper applications need to be used.
What is puzzling is the first question on an electronic application is “Is this youth a current/former scout” and then it asks for BSA ID if you say yes.
Does anyone here use electronic applications for Webelos successfully? Any tips for how to use add webelos electronically so we can avoid having to chase parents for paper apps?
