Did the SM try? Normally parents wouldn’t set these. Not that the error is very helpful.

Thanks for your response, Older Forums says Parents can add that info.

I think parents should still be able to, especially in the case of a troop that doesn’t actively use this feature. Parents are prevented from marking it approved, though.


I may have a different opinion,

I understand historically when Scoutbook was first expanded to be used by troops it was based on a program written to support packs.

Let us remember that Scoutbook needs to support different types of units with different leadership organizations.

Troops are not packs. The youth performance standard in a troop does not include the parent doing the work a Scout should be doing. The Scouts are expected to be leaders and parents are not expected to do the work for the Scout.

So when or why is feature needed in Scoutbook?
