Unit Advancement report

How do you generate a unit advancement report for a scout troop with all scouts and their rsnks, merit badges, and spevial.awards

Hi, @JohnBurnham,

From which interface, scoutbook ( or IA2 ( Are you looking for a report showing all current status, or all items yet to be awarded?

The only way I know of pulling a complete status on every scout is a full export of the unit advancement database to CSV, which requires unit-level admin privileges (I believe) and isn’t particularly pretty. If you’re just looking to pull a printable report on what needs awarding, then from My Dashboard → My Units → Unit Reports → Needs Purchasing Report, you can either view an already open PO, or add all of the items that Need Awarding to a PO, then print the Advancement Report from inside that PO.

There is guidance on how to create Advancement reports for IA2 and Scoutbook at I was able to use the search feature to find information on creating various advancement reports there.

What are you trying to do with the data? Do you need a unit Advancement Report in order to purchase ranks, merit badges, or awards at the Scout shop? Or is it for some other purpose?

Which interface are you using ( or Internet Advancement)?

If using, you can create your own report to show as much or as little detail as you like for the scouts.
