    • I find it hard to believe that in these times of cancelled meetings, meeting places unavailable,  no campouts, cancelled summer camps and High Adventure activities, etc. that a Troop Committee would get bogged down in the minutia of whether a spare tire holder should be powder coated or galvanized.  Come on people! 
    • I double checked my positions and I've got the little keys next to my name. I've logged in from my phone, and two different browsers on my laptop to try it, so I don't think it can be a cache issue. I'll try the forums. Thanks.  I probably won't encourage parents who aren't den leaders from using Scoutbook unless we have to. 
    • @Momleader, Please let your Scout come up with ideas on their own based upon the requirements in the MB. The more you try and "help," the more opportunities you take away. This is an opportunity for your Scout to do research, and come up with ideas, thinking outside of the box if needed. If you give them ideas for the project you are taking away the opportunity for them to think on their own.  If your Scout is having challenges, then the MBC is the one who should be asked, and by the Scout.
    • We have to approve the purchase at our committee meeting next week. There will be a lengthy discussion... I'm thinking powder coated would be best but galvanized steel is cheaper. 
    • By default all parents have full control over there scouts in Scoutbook.  As a key 3 member, you should have full control over everyone in the pack.  I would recommend clearing your cache or logging in with incognito mode, and see if that helps.  If not, I would post that question on the Scoutbook forums page, one of the SAC folks may have a solution for you.  Also, as far as being part of the key 3, double check your positions under my.scouting. While parents can enter things they have done with their scout at home, it must still be approved by a leader.  (As a side note, we tried to turn off full control for parents at the troop level, and were unable to do so.  That can then cause issues when parents are marking merit badge requirements as complete when they are not merit badge counselors.  We had that happen recently, when a scout was awarded a MB that is usually only done at summer camp, yet he did not attend this summer or last summer.  When I looked at him in Scoutbook, mom had marked off several requirements that were not completed 3 summers ago, and our advancement chair evidently did not look at it before awarding the MB.)
