Updates to Compass and Atlantic Data
We have made a few changes to Compass on the back of the feedback you have been providing to us.
In Compass we have made the following changes:

- The approvals for the Scout Active Support Member role have been updated to remove the requirement for Commissioner Approval in order to align with POR
- The reports that are available to the Deputy Training Manager roles have been updated to give them access to the Training Report
- A bug has been fixed that was causing an error message to be shown for some members when they tried to update their personal details or communication preferences
- A update has been made to allow Training Advisers to fill in the PLP agreed date for their learners’ Personal Learning Plans
