Our troop participates in the HUGS award. Each girl must complete 3 troop wide offered service projects to earn the award. I’m trying to come up with an easy way to figure out how to keep track of the girls who have done the 3 projects. This is my scenario
Sept 11 - Tammy, Lizzie, Marie, and Joan all completed the HUGS project
Nov 11 - Jamie, Lizzie, Hannah, and Sofie all completed the HUGS project
Feb 18 - Tammy, Jamie, Sofie, and Joan all completed the HUGS project.
This is a relatively small number of girls and I could go through and see that only Tammy earned the HUGS patch. But I have when I have at least 10 different HUGS events over the year and 94 girls to do that with, it can make a normal mom a little crazy. Like, she has an eye twitch and only approach her with chocolate crazy…
Is there a way, any way, to create an award that would allow me to mark girls off as they complete the HUGS events and when that girl hits the 3 mark, her HUGS patch is automatically entered on a report or shopping list? The other thing that complicates this is that only girls earning HUGS for the first time get the actual patch. The new girls and all other girls get the year rocker.
I’m stepping out of my leadership roles next year and am training all my replacements now. I am trying to streamline and get as much set up/automated as possible to make TT seem less intimidating than it is to most of my parents now. All these crazy questions I’m asking on here are for that.
**Edited to add
I’m sitting her playing with the Custom Awards. If I put it in as a custom award, is there a way to note that there are say a total of 10 plus options (events) and that a girl only needs to complete 3 of those requirements to earn the badge? Or do I only have the option of entering the actual needed requirements.
My thought process is that if I enter the HUGS project that was done on 9/11 as requirement 1, and then if I have girls who complete the HUGS project 2 that was done on 11/13, I can’t enter that as completing Req 1 b/c it will overwrite any data on the girls who participated in the project on 9/11 instead of just updating the girls with a 2nd requirement. And instead of showing that Susie did Reqs 1 and 2, it will only show up as having done Req one right? Does that make sense? I promise I am trying to figure this out.
