I was working with a MBC recently, and they had the impression that they were flying blind in terms of their ability to see what requirements a scout might already have signed off in Scoutbook.
After a bit of troubleshooting, I was able to determine that they are able to locate the scout’s profile by navigating to Dashboard → My Account → Connections → Finding the scout in the list
While it gets them there - it wasn’t initially intuitive to either the MBC or a Troop Admin to determine that was how the Merit Badge Counselor could see status…
As a MBC’s initial focus is on the Merit Badges that they are teaching - it would seem that the most natural view for them would be to have the ability to drill into the Merit Badges that they teach, and have a list of scouts that is hyperlinked to the appropriate Merit Badge Advancement Page for that scout.
It seemed to us that this could be accomplished with a minor edit to the “Quick Entry for MB Counselors” page:
There is already a checkable list of scouts on the page.
If the scouts name (or some other button/icon like “view”) linked to the individual scout’s advancement record for that Merit Badge - it would be an improvement to the MBC experience…
