Continuing the discussion from BSA Adult Application permissions:
SO. Everyone in Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts needs to worry about application forms, re-chartering and role-changes that require a person to fill out an application.
MANY people would love to be able to fill in a form on-line. But the BSA still hasn’t gotten over this hurdle, so until someone steps up and creates a “fillable-PDF” version of the current BSA Youth and Adult Application forms…
Right now, the “Manage Troop Members” permission is needed for these application forms to be generated out of TroopTrack. An extremely powerful permission for something as simple as generating a form out of your own data for your own use.
But wouldn’t it be great if a user could generate a form for their own use, based on the information in their Trooptrack record? This becomes MOST useful for people who already have IDs and their personal information entered into Trooptrack.
I would suggest that this is useful for NEW applications as well, since you have a single place (Trooptrack) to get both.
Option 1: NEW user. No TT user ID, no information in TT. Fine. GIve the user a TT link that generates a blank form that they can print and fill-in. At least it will be consistent with the forms you use for re-chartering or role-changes.
Option 2: NEW user. No TT user ID, no information in TT. Ok! Give the user a one-page form that doesn’t store data, but that can turn that data into a Youth or Adult Application that can be saved/printed. You would still have to enter the information manually into TT to create a user ID for the new person.
Option 3: NEW user. No TT user ID, no information in TT. Ok! Give the user a one-page form from which they can REGISTER FOR AN ID ON THEIR OWN, and be able to turn that data into a Youth or Adult Application. TroopTrack administrator for that unit would have to review/approve the record before it could be a “full-fledged” member/userID.
EXISTING USERS - Re-chartering or role-changes
- Option 1: Provide a button in their profile, which they could push to generate the appropriate BSA form.
What do you think? Thanks for your time. Please this post if you agree!
