How to approve pending activities

I have a list of boys that have pending service hours. How do I approve them? When I go to each youth individual log the hours are there.
Trying to figure this out, really liked it when it was all just in Scoutbook.

You need to be a Key 3 or Key 3 Delegate to approve the hours.

  • Open IA2 (scoutbook.scouting.org)
  • Select “Activities” from the menu bar on the left to get to your unit’s list of activities.
  • Find the activity you need to update.
  • Click on the pencil in the upper right corner.
  • Add the Scouts and Scouters by clicking on the “Add Person” button in the pop-up.
  • Add any other participants that aren’t Scouts or Scouters in your unit (so, other parents, siblings, etc.) at the bottom of the pop-up, where it says “Non-Registered Youth” and “Non-Registered Adults”.
  • Click on the green “Edit and Finish” button.

At this point, you should see the activity in the individual Scouts’ profiles.
