Roster Report Print Roster function does allow you to select whole Troop, by Patrol, or individual Scouts and allows the user to select the Swim Classification for reporting and it will produce a report showing the current Swim Classification for each Scout and/or Leader in the Roster, but the dates are not shown. It also appears to check these dates and indicate if expired by reporting “(expired)” next to the classification that the Scout or Leader had previously held. However, it also seems to only compare the year portion of the date to the current date and does not take into consideration the month or date of of the Swimmers Classification date, so it only provides a rough control point of +/- 1 year. It would be great if this function was either tighter, reporting “expired” of the date was +/- 1 month of current date, or better yet, allow users to report the actual Swim Classification Date along with the Swim Classification field/status for each roster member.
Additionally, it appears that you can edit the Swim classification and associated date field in the profile for adults that are listed Scout Parents, but unless they are leaders, they are not in the current roster report. I know it is rare that we would need to know the swimm classification of parents, but if we are able to log the data, will we ever be able to report it?
Thanks and I hope to hear that you are able to add some of these sugggestions. To be honest, with Summer Camp coming up, it would be nice to gather the swim classification for all of our attendees and use it moving forward to report on members that attend events where this information is needed, but if the current report is used, we could not trust that it was accurate enough for our Troop requirement of being swim tested annually.
