Positions of Responsibility for Scouts

Hello: For my troop, the advancement chair has never put in positions of responsibility, camping nights, nor hiking miles for the scouts. Scouts were responsible for keeping logs of that in their binders & submitting the paperwork for POR rank advancement, hiking/camping awards with the scoutmaster. Recently, several Life Scouts have told me their Eagle Applications were not accepted because the PORs were not in the online advancement site. Could someone please tell me where I would put that in? I only have MB, rank, and awards showing I don’t see anywhere I can put in leadership positions. Thanks.

Yeah we have heard some councils doing that (makes little sense as not all Units use the SB system) - BUT - on each Scouts Profile page in SB - there is a Leadership Section - as an Admin and I think any FC Leader

On that page you can add and edit positions for each Scout

If you are running the SB Extension it has a tool to quick entry the positions

Thank you for your quick reply. I’m new to this, so I’m confused as to where I should be putting this information in… I don’t have the same screen as you have pictured. When I’ve been logging in the Merit Badges and Rank Advancements, I’ve been going to advancements.scouting.org as that was the only place that allowed me to do so.
My screen looks like this if I go to any individual scout’s roster page: Youth Profile | Scoutbook Plus - Google Chrome - 2024-07-07_14-18-25 - TechSmith Screencast - TechSmith Screencast
I can’t locate the screen that says “leadership positions.” Am I not logged into the correct location or don’t have the right access? Please advise…

Advancements.scouting is Scoutbook+ and is not ready for Troops other than the calendar - Troop management should be at scoutbook.scouting.org.

Yikes… so for the past year, I’ve been putting in merit badges and rank advancements using the advancements.scouting.org site because the scoutbook site wouldn’t let me. I only had access in scoutbook as a parent for my own scout. Does this mean I now have to go back to put in merit badges/rank advancements in the scoutbook site? Sorry, but this is very confusing.

@AileenGum you may find Scoutbook much easier for that as you can record at a requirement level

@AileenGum Scoutbook and Scoutbook Plus (formerly called Internet Advancement 2.0) both share the same database, so you shouldn’t need to reenter anything.

Thanks so much – that is a relief that I don’t have to go back and put everything back in again.

POR: Until this month, we’d never had a issue with Eagle Applications being denied for not having the PORs listed online. Traditionally our scouts kept track of them & had them approved at each Scoutmaster conference.
Is there a resource or training module for Advancement Chair, specifically what gets recorded in scoutbook.scouting.org vs advancements.scouting.org? I want to make sure that scouts’ records are being kept correctly.

Well right now we are in the middle of a transition between the 2 platforms - Leadership, Membership, Advancement (from a record stand point) are all still at Scoutbook for troops.

…and activity logs and calendar/attendance, to the extent your unit uses them, are tracked at advancements.scouting.
