Specifically, Events (meetings, camps, etc.) are now linked to specific badge requirements. This means the troop/pack at-a-glance reports not only show what each youth has completed, but also what they WILL have completed (provided they show up to the events, of course!).
This makes it much easier to plan better Program by ensuring that the scheduled meetings and outings will cover off as much of the Program for as many of the youth as possible.
When looking at the individual badges' details, youth and Leaders can now also see which requirements will be covered off in upcoming events.
A new page / report has been added that shows the details of all the upcoming events. This gives parents and youth (and leaders, too!) a “one-stop” way to check what's next on the calendar.
To increase the usefulness of the schedule, a “Location” field has been added to the event details.
Previously, the completed / awarded date for a requirement or badge was set to the date the leader marked it as such. However, many of you wanted to be able to make the records more historically accurate by reporting that badges were awarded when they were handed to the youth. So, you can now change the completed/awarded dates!
We now track the date each youth joined your section. Currently this most useful for filtering out the events that occurred before the youth joined.
