    No.

    Unless I forget any concerns I have about parental consent & Data Protection.

    I am awaiting responses from the Information Centre, but suspect this will drag on hence the NO.

    I said yes, though we have yet to try an upload - we have the info on the spreadsheets, so it can't be that far off....


    Could it??

    Yes

    I used OSM to export my data and have uploaded into Compass, all my Cubs are in. All the data looks good.
    I still plan on using OSM for running my pack.

    Already done it.

    Dumped out from OSM, bit of editing of addresses, all uploaded.

    It didn't link up all the Parents correctly so I've got a few duplicates but that doesn't bother me so I'll probably leave them.

    I've been told that there will be a de-duplication process that will be triggered later.

    Looks like a waiting game for us, Don ...

    I've answered "Yes" because I'm hopeful that the export from OSM will cover it. It seems to have gone well for most people.

    I have put Don't Know. It all depends on the GSL whose IT skills are in line with the IT1 badge.

    The responsibility to upload data to Compass for Beavers, Cubs and Scouts rests with the section leaders. Adults should already be on Compass.

    So the IT skills, or lack of IT skills, of your GSL should not have much impact on the Groups ability to get information uploaded in time for census on 31 January.

    Its an ambiguous question. Do you mean will we have our data ready by 31 Jan or do you mean do we trust Compass to be working by 31 Jan?

    I put 'don't know' because it depends on me being assigned a role as a leader of the right unit.

    No but the skills of the section leaders could and I suspect that will impact on quite a few groups over the next few weeks.

    We will be offering support to those groups in our district in this situation and hope you will be doing the same whilst waving your copy of POR at them.

    Yes - but subject to sorting out who is doing upload in two Sections where S/Leader can't.
