Are you ready to Streamline your work? Project Streamline is a project to simplify and streamline Guiding administration and reduce bureaucracy. The new ways of working will save many hours (170,000 per year) of volunteer time spent on administration. How could you spend that time? One part of the project is to implement Guiding Organiser! (Go!), our new database. Go! will hold information about adult volunteers, girls and young women. Most of this information is already held on current databases or on paper but the difference will be that it’s a ‘one-stop-shop’ accessible by all authorised guiding users via a secure website. As a member changes section or moves to a new area, their record easily moves with them, meaning less work for all. Everything we do on Go! Should be accompanied by a “non technical” process – talking to each other, making decisions, following procedures. Many of these are what you do already. Please bear this in mind while we take you through the Go! System, which, due to time constraints today will concentrate on the Go! System functionality. So…are you ready to
How the database works The Go! Database has 3 main functions that we’ll be involved with Personal Details Management Update your own details or those of a person you have selected (one of your girls if you are a unit leader, or an adult member of your team if you are have Commissioner access rights) Role Management Roles are the positions a person holds within Guiding. They might be a member of one or more sections for a girl, or an adult leader or Commissioner of one or more units / districts / divisions. You can edit roles of people depending on your access rights. Level Management Levels are units, Districts and Divisions. You can edit levels depending on your access rights, for example, a Unit Guider can access and edit her unit’s data, her District Commissioner can access and edit adult and general data (but not specific girl data) for all units in her District. There will be County level system where a County “Superuser” can make additional changes for things you don’t have permission to change yourself, and update access levels. TAKE NOTE! There has been a delay from CHQ and the Live database is not ready at the time of training you. So we will be using the Training version - this means you can use a dummy password and play with data without worrying that you are making any irrecoverable mistakes - the data is reset every few days. Some screens or procedures may be slightly different.
