Tracking elective

Is there a way to track progress on the elective badges? For example, when I go in to mark progress towards the backpacking elective badge you can’t check each requirement like the other badges. You can only mark it as completed.

Hi @BethHannahs,

I was able to log into your account and find the backpacking elective. It’s under “Outdoor Skills”.

Right. I can find it, but I can’t mark progress towards it. We had a backpacking trip and they finished portions of the requirements but not the whole thing. There is no way to mark their progress. The only option I have when I go into it is to mark it as completed. I can’t check off the things they have done towards it.

Oh, I see what you are saying now. Sorry about that.

Unfortunately, I cannot help with this one. Trail Life has sole control over their achievements. I will change this to the TL specific topic about Advancement.

If you’d like, you can also contact Doug with Trail Life ( or you may call Trail Life at 321-247-7761.
