Giving participants your input on the quality and content of their entries is crucial to getting useful data and crucial in showig scouts their valuable opinions are being heard.
Here are a few examples of short, quick messages to scouts that can make a big difference for your data.Remind message
“Thanks for getting your first entry in, Oscar! We loved hearing your first impressions and commentary on the box you received. Keep up the great work! :)”
Have you ever been a scout? It’s hard work!
