Im sure someone will point out that this is already available somewhere, but I have tried looking on ArmyNET and on ARRSE for anything relevant but no luck so far... My unit has these lovely forms we are calling "theater passports" for want of a better term. They are basically a register of all the training a solider has done in the run up to deployment, and hold details such as whether a will is held, NOK details, dates of all MATTS and component parts thereof, any other weapon training, shoots, media forms, welfare forms etc etc. All this data (or at least a very significant portion of it) is held on JPA and yet there seems to be no alternative to simply typing each one out by hand, which, given the amount of raw data on each one, is a huge task. 1. Why does this form exist when JPA checks already exist for most of this data? Isnt that the whole point of JPA - to save the acres of forestry that seems to be needed to produce all of this? 2. If this form is really necessary, why isnt JPA capable of auto populating forms like this where possible - IT HR systems are supposed to be labour saving not work generating. 3. Why are all the forms in text format, making it virtually impossible to copy/paste any information into them - surely people have heard of spreadsheets? Kind Regards B PS. Just to clarify, I am unsure as to whether this is a unit 'initiative' or more widespread.
