Assuming you have a functioning copy, SIMS is still the most comprehensive way to manage squadron - it encompasses
everything you need in one place.

Unfortunately, all the mucking with the tables, not to mention moving them from Access to raw text appears to have chased away
the developers.  Their site is dead.

Right, and as a Leadership Officer, I work under the CDC, who asked me who dropped to bring our count down, and I had a hell of a time finding it out under the cadet restricted apps.

That request should have gone to the Personnel Officer.  That was the wrong lane for that task.

We were doing something unrelated. Came up by text message at 11PM. We both have access to the reports, so why involve someone else?

Cadet Promotions have reports.  Make it an option under the 90 Day Lapse.


Indeed it does, and with the exception of the 90 day lapse, they are ALL tied to .... cadet promotions.  An expired member isn't in any way tied to promotions, so there is no need for it to be there.  Keep things in their proper lane.

You involve the other person, because that's whose job it is to manage that.  You manage the cadets in your lane, the Personnel manages all the data of everybody.  If a cadet falls off the roster, that cadet is no longer in your lane.  That is how it is supposed to work in the perfect world.  Now, if the CDC or CC thought it should be in your lane, they should assign you the right WSA permissions to check it out.

Have one and using it actively.  It's a pain to use when you first start but it does contain a wealth of info and is easy to update.

Seriously? We saw the dip from 30 to 29. Wondered who dropped. All there is to it. Sometimes ACTIVE cadets will forget to renew in a timely manner. Sometimes it's a kid off to college, or one who dropped off on attendance months ago. IMO this is the type of stuff you need to see as a CP Officer. We don't need a bureaucracy, and I didn't need any of the kids data, just a name to put to the change.

And again, one of my permissions (PAO, Testing, Leadership) gives me the reports at hand, so I'm not sure why you're convinced that a Personnel officer needs to get involved, especially on a cursory issue.

I understand why people drop off.  I see it all the time.  If you have access to the reports fine, it means your command has seen fit that you need access to that information.  If they haven't; you go to the one that does.  Why is that so hard? 

Should that report be accessible to CP people, you bet.  Why its not?  No clue.

Maybe because it is supposed to be the responsibility of the Personnel Officer, according to the pamphlet that covers the Personnel specialty track, CAPP200?

Quote
From page 4:
This includes recruiting new members, retaining current members...

Quote
From page 3, para 1:
1. Position Description. Personnel technicians are responsible for a basic familiarity with all CAP personnel directives and the organizational structure of CAP. They perform all duties related to processing unit personnel actions to include new membership applications, unit activations and deactivations, charter changes, assignments, reassignments, transfers, retirements, promotions, demotions, termination, actions, and awards and decorations.

Just like a testing issue is that of the Testing Officer...?

So a CDC needs to go to Personnel for a quick report on his cadets? It's not possible, in a rational world to have both have access to it? CDC and CC also need to know the testing regs, not just the testing officers.

It was asked "Why do I have to go to the Personnel Officer for this?" Asked and answered.

Now you are posting a different question. To which I answer if you have access to that report, then run it! And no, in this case you do not have to involve your Personnel Officer!

No, the question was why would a CDC need to involve a personnel officer when the CDC should have access to this info.

The simple but blunt answer is that they way 20-1 is written, the CDC doesn't.  I think that they should have it, and they can.  The WSA just needs to grant those permissions.

Wow.  If we use Flyers logic, the non-renewing member that fell off the roster is not any concern of the Personnel Officer.  Since they are a former member, and it's not written in black and white in CAPP 200, it's not a Personnel issue.

Really, non-renewals are everyone's business. We need to know the why and reasons for leaving.  Those answers will help every staff officer at the Squadron.

If the only reason you notice someone is missing is because your MML is 1 short, they aren't likely to be coming back.

People forget to renew all the time, and that will pop up the first time you try to input safety, fly, whatever, but
very few are active members and then simply stop showing up coincidental to their membership expiring.

The reports that always concerned me were the 90 and thirty day expiration reports, especially if someone
is on there more then once.

Most people take care of that kind of thing as soon as it is brought to their attention, so when they linger on those
reports, there's usually a reason - "I forgot is #1.", but "I don't know if I'm renewing." and "I'm not giving NHQ a nickel
until the last minute." are on that list too.

#2 & 3 usually indicate some kind of displeasure with their CAP involvement.
