Mar 25th
Having trouble with Medical Form, just pulled the following from Bechtel Summit Facebook Page
Hi all. Sorry for the frustration some of you are experiencing with the forms. We've contacted the support team, and here's the latest:   "The medical form requires IE9 or later, Firefox 14 or later or Chrome 21 or later. If your browser meets one of those requirements check to make sure the browser is not in compatibility mode. You do that through Tools and then Developer Tools. Our developers have been working on pushing new code to production that should resolve a lot of the print, save and status issues everyone has been experiencing. That push should be complete by COB Tuesday so check things out after that and see if you are still experiencing problems. If so, call the national support center at 972-580-2489 or email 2013jamboree@scouting.org."
