I’m a counselor for a merit badge and hosted a Troop wide merit badge clinic last year. After the clinic I went into Scoutbook and marked all the completed requirements for the scouts that attended. Over the course of the year, only half of them followed through and actually finished the merit badge. When I look at the merit badge counselor list, it still shows I’m working with XX number of scouts. It’s not a problem, I’m just curious if a scout never finishes the badge, am I going to see that count forever? Perhaps I shouldn’t have updated their Scoutbook requirements, until the very end, when they finished the badge?
Is there a best practice for paper blue card versus Scoutbook when doing clinics like that for your own Troop?
