    Hopefully it doesn't go anything like this...

    Scout admins across the world rev up their engines and Compass subsequently goes down.

    Well, compassuserguide.scouts.org.uk appears to have fallen over...

    I'm properly not going to upload anything until January as I will have members moving around between now and the closing date

    I'm getting all the yellow fields filled in first (minus the second parent stuff). Did we ever figure out when the final deadline is? Jan 31st?

    I think I'll let you all have a go first, so that you can come back and report any pitfalls!

    Would certainly love to hear if the upload fails for people who have entered "prefer not to say" in the religion fields!

    I've been one of the people that have beta tested the upload. It actually went surprisingly smoothly.

    In theory it shouldn't as that is a permitted entry in Compass, in much the same way as you don't have to use the look-ups on the spreadsheet, so long as the string of data in that field, exactly matches the data permissible in Compass itself.

    Mind you - I might just let you test it!

    Well I have every intention of using it sooner rather than later - setting a date of Jan 13th or when I get all the additional info forms back, which ever comes first. I will report back when I've done it.

    Ooh I get the fun of doing all three sections, too. District have promised to make me Group Administrator on Compass (not happened yet) - I wonder what'll happen if I do the upload before being made Admin.

    Good to see a nice responsive design for the upload site. It's a shame compass doesn't have such a design

    I think Group Admin can be added by the GSL, can't it?

    Our GSL won't be using Compass for a variety of reasons. In effect, I will be the only person in the group using it.

    Assuming the reasons don't involve something like a disability which would make this impossible, a reasonable way of getting your access would be to sit with them, get them registered, get your Group Admin role set up, then they never have to log in again.
