Permission Slip Button

I am looking into using the premisison slip feature of scoutbook. I created a test event and set the toggle to require Permision Slips. I invited my wife to the event.

The FAQ states:
Optional Permission Slips Required toggle – Flip this switch if signed permission slips are required for this event. Scoubook will allow the parents and Scouts to download a pre-filled permission slip that they can sign. If you prefer to hand deliver the slips to each parent or Scout just press the Slips button to generate all the slips.

I cannot locate this Slips button.

Do the slips only apply to youth?

Thanks in advance

The Slips button only shows up if youth are invited to the event.

Compare the same event without and with a Scout invited.

Once you get it figured out, it works pretty well. It is still paper based, but in our troop, we require the Scouts to manage printing and brining the slips. Since they are connected to their accounts, they can take on that responsibility of printing and having the parent sign. It has worked well for us.

Perfect, thanks. I will add a scout to the event and test.

Thank you for the feedback, I appreciate it.
