Parents and scouts have the ability to check off achievement items in Scoutbook. These will appear with a green checkmark.
Leaders must approve the achievements. This must be done by a scoutmaster before these awards are officially recognized. Approved items appear with a blue checkmark.
For merit badges, go to your patrol ASM for approval to start badge. The ASM will provide guidance on the badge and help identify a merit badge counselor. If approved, the ASM will add the badge in Scoutbook, mark the “Initial Unit Leader Signature” field, and invite the counselor. The counselor can now edit your steps and approve when the badge is finished.
Going forward that we will not mark badge completions approved without the initial leader signature filled out. It is important that yout patrol ASMs know what you are working on.
