Badge Rosters Access
To implement the new climbing leader progression (as well as the recently updated snowshoe leader progression), please give committee admins access to edit leader badge rosters. While there's a very small risk that someone could accidentally remove a person from a different branch from a badge roster, that's simple to fix. (note: if it can be possible to manager leader badges via the committee roster, that would also be a workable solution).
Much like the “Access to Badge Rosters” idea, http://feedback.mountaineers.org/forums/273688-general-feedback/suggestions/6746686-access-to-badge-rosters, we have declined this idea.
The practical constraints are that badge rosters are a compilation of other rosters managed through different avenues. Meaning course admins can grant badges through their course rosters by graduating students, and committee admins manage leader badges through their committees. We recognize that some committees need to assign more than one leader badge and that not all leaders get the same badge(s). We have the “Multiple Badges Within a Committee” idea, http://feedback.mountaineers.org/forums/273688-general-feedback/suggestions/37059466-multiple-badges-within-a-committee-gh2933, for this.
The technical constraints are that (1) adding sharing permissions was partly broken in the Plone 5 update—fixing it is at least a small project, and (2) badge roster pages have issues that need fixed for them to be used for this.
One option to relieve staff from having to add leaders to badge rosters and until the “Multiple Badges Within a Committee” idea is implemented is to use subcommittees to track leaders and assign them to badge rosters.
