The notification emails about RSVP events only include text telling the invitee that they should RSVP, with a link to the event.
It’d be a LOT more useful if the email included a Yes and a No link they could click to RSVP for their Scout right then. Our parents rarely bother to click the event link, I suspect because they’d have to sign into Scoutbook.
As an ID professional for almost 40 years, I recognize that anyone with access to this message could respond for them; so it’s not as secure as forcing them log in, then respond. They’ve already authenticated that they have access to this email account. To reduce the chance that someone else would respond Yes/No for them, any RSVP notification could instruct them not to forward the message to others.
So I’d suggest that the impact and possibility of someone spoofing their response is very low - definitely worth the added functionality of improving the ease of response and provide accurate, helpful info for the unit.
