Welcome! This forum has a treasure trove of great info – Scouters helping Scouters! Just a heads up, though - all content, information, and opinions shared on this forum are those of the author, not the BSA.
I know this is the wrong place to post this but couldn’t figure out anywhere else to put it. A large number of r Scouts especially younger Scouts no longer have start dates in Scout book for our troop. This is making it impossible for Scout book to calculate OA candidates.
Scouts BSA start dates can’t be automatically entered because of the way the BSA’s registration works. For example, if a Scout joins the troop on March 31, the start date for the troop would be March 1. Since the Date Joined date is used for OA eligibility, it needs to be accurate.
