PENDING: Medical Book Privilege?

What privilege is necessary to give someone the right to view the Medical Book? (Manage --> Medical Book)

It looks like that one actually requires an access level of “Unit.”

I believe it requires the privelege of “manage membership” at the unit level.
I wish it was a separate privilege. There are multiple priveleges that are lumped into Membership priveleges which requires the troop to give multiple people a very powerful priveleges or a few people must be responsible for multiple tasks.


We recently assigned the role of tracking Medical record status to a new scout parent. The thought was that this person would not keep the records but could keep the expiration dates correct in TroopTrack. But via process of elimination I discovered what is stated above. The only way to give this parent access is to give them “Manage troop members: Add, edit, or delete troop members” This is a very powerful privilege and not something I feel comfortable giving to a new scout parent I also wish there was a specific privilege just for this.


Even with that privilege, they are limited by their access level to perform those operations. I see the need for something here, though so I put in an enhancement request.

I agree there should be the ability to split this type of privilege out to another parent. Right now this will have to be absorbed into a parent who is already volunteered to do other functions in the troop. It would be nice to spread this without having to risk other mishaps.

I would very much second this request. Generally the privileges function is one of the most powerful and important features of TroopTrack – the more flexibility we can get to allocate privileges the better.

Hi @mlsully2002 @dave,

Is there an update on this enhancement request? I also would like to give our Health & Safety Coordinators the ability to update medical record dates without giving them Membership privileges. Or maybe it has already been done?

Thank you!

It hasn’t been done yet @mwestcott1. Thanks for following up. I’m adding it to the to-do list

Thanks! You’re the best! :slight_smile:


We have built this feature. You can now access the Medical Book by going to Manage > Reports > Medical Book. Users must have the “Manage medical book” privilege enabled on their profile to access it.

Let me know if you have any questions.

This is great! Thank you so much!!!

Is there any way to give a parent rights to manage (update/edit) the medical book without giving rights to add/delete members? Giving them “manage medical book” at the unit level lets them see the medical book but not update it. Am I missing something? The parent was able to update for their family via the profile page, but Reports → Manage Medical Book is still read-only.
