Scoutbook still allowing parents to mark advancement as leader approved. Jan 2021, anyone else having issues or know how to fix?
Cub scouts or scouts bsa?
Scouts BSA, I have tried to check all other settings, permissions, etc.and it occurred with committee members and non registered parents both
Tonight was a committee member marking leader approved for own scout
Scoutbook treats all registered leaders the same as far as approving advancement is concerned. We’d like to see a more granular approach to this, but that’d require a major change to the permissions system. Usually talking to people about expectations is enough.
On the non-registered parents, do they have an adult leader connection to their child, or is it parent/guardian only? Specifically, what did they approve?
Can you provide the BSA Member ID of the Scout that had a non-registered parent approve advancement and what was approved? We will look into it. We do not need the Scout’s name.
It has been maybe 8 -12 mo ago, parent approved advancement and camping activity.
I removed at that time. The same parent will be a registered adult once we recharter in a few weeks
The issue with non-registered parents being able to approve advancement for Scouts was fixed since you last saw the issue.
I suggest you council this parent who will be a leader soon that they should not check the Leader Approved box unless that is their role in the unit.
