Before I keep pushing scoutbook for my Scouts to use, not the adult leaders, I want to make sure what they should and should not be using it for. I’ve searched and not found anything definitive, so my apologies if this is a repeat question. We do use it as the adults, but we are trying to encourage more independence through SB.
The biggest question about it when working on a merit badge, should the scout mark items completed after they do them? I’m having a bit of difference of opinion with some other leadership. Their thought is only the SM, ASM’s, or MBC’s should be marking things “completed”. But my feeling is scouts could be able to mark them “completed” to track their status, and then the leaders marked them “approved.” Which is the correct way of doing this?
After that I want to encourage the scouts to use scoutbook to track their camping, service hours, and hiking. What else would be good for them specifically to use??
