    I am so confused – our Troop is currently NOT switching to Scoutbook as it does not have some of the report features we need so my question is how to IA without using Scoutbook – when I go to my dashboard legacy to IA it shows my roster but when I choose a Scout it does not show any options to ‘start’ a mb

    In the new Internet Advancement 2.0, when you’re at the youth roster, choose the Scout that you want to record advancement for, and then click the checkbox to the left of their name. Once at least one youth’s checkbox is selected, in the upper right of the roster section the “Record Advancement” option will become active. Click on that and it will open up a new dialogue box that allows you to enter the completed rank, award, or badge.

    I don’t think that you can record partials or “start” working on a badge or rank through IA, only through Scoutbook.

    We’re also in the non-Scoutbook camp. You don’t record partials or another in-progress work in Internet Advancement 2.0. It is only for completions. If you want to track the in-progress work in Internet Advancement, the recommendation is to go all the way and switch to Scoutbook.
