I'm sure I remember seeing this discussed beforebut can't find it.... does anyone know what the official stance on the online guide manager is? I'm thinking we would just use it to keep track of badges, progress etc & not put any personal details in.
The issue is with data protection, so if you don't put any of the girls' personal details in then I don't see a problem. I guess you could use an anonymous code for each girl so that you know who's who.
The OP has sent me a PM as she's had the following reply about OGM from HQ.
You are correct that you cannot enter or keep personal information on any software other than those provided by Girlguiding. We are aware of the On-line Guide Manager and have met with the suppliers. However that meeting raised serious security concerns and it was agreed that as they were unable to provide us with information regarding the security of the product and Data Protect Compliance that this stance would not change.
We are currently planning to upgrade Go! within the next 2 years and within the list of suggests from members is the request that some of the features of the In-Line Guide Manager be used. This would include changes to process and policy because at the moment it is the girls responsibility to keep track of achievement and not the Leaders.
