I am putting a request out to our user community ("the crowd") for some assistance in verifying that the Pathways Project Resource file PDFs that we have on the FreeToastHost server are still current. We need to do this exercise occasionally since we do not have an automatic way of ensuring our copies of the resource PDFs are current. This is an opportunity for users to contribute to the ongoing maintenance of FreeToastHost to maintain its usefulness.

This can be a simple as just cross-checking the revision dates of Pathways Project Resource PDFs in BaseCamp vs what we have on the FTH server for whatever path you are working on. There are a lot of these PDFs so verifying them via a crowd-sourced approach makes some sense. If we get enough users even doing a little bit to help verify that our PDFs are still current, the effort will get done in short order.

How to do the verification:
1. The revision dates of the Pathways Project Resources (Project Description and Project Evaluation Form) are at the bottom of the last page in the PDF file.
2. Create a dummy FTH agenda and assign yourself to a speech. This makes the Pathways Resource buttons available.
3. For each PDF that you verify, just check the revision date on the PDF on the FTH server by loading the PDF via the button on the agenda, then download the same PDF via Base Camp and check that the corresponding revision dates are the same.
4. If you find that any of our resource PDFs are not current, then just attach the current PDF downloaded from BaseCamp in a post in this thread. We will take it from there.
5. Also, once you have completed checking a number of the PDFs (even if they check out as current), please post that here so that other users do not duplicate your efforts.

Thank you in advance for any of you that contribute to this effort!

Just use whatever path you want... perhaps one you are working on. Just make a dummy agenda then delete it when you are done.

Just report back here when you are done and please provide updated the PDFs for any that you find are outdated on our server.

I would like to help, but since I am no long BCM or VPE (by choice) this year, I can't "download the same PDF via Base Camp and check that the corresponding revision dates are the same".

Can't I just compare the Pathways Project Resources (Project Evaluation Form) dates from FTH against the date listed on the Evaluation form I downloaded and printed with my projects so far? Or won't the Evaluation forms that I downloaded in 2018 or 2019 have a different revision date from the same forms if I downloaded them in 2020?

I can open all downloaded projects and most of the electives in Levels 1-4 in Presentation Mastery.)[/u] If that will work, I'll try to find time on Wednesday or Thursday to help..
