Adults who have a leader account and above are able to change a participant's enrolment date as long as they have the 'can adjust participant's enrolment and section dates' permission applied.
eDofE will allow a participant's enrolment date to be changed in line with the DofE's age range requirements and as long as there are no date clashes with sections at other levels.
Find the participant's account by using 'Manage participants > Participant overview' from the left-hand menu or using the 'Find user' box from the top right-hand corner.
However, when backdating please remember it is important to follow the Age Rules as shown here What are the eDofE age rules? – DofE
1. Select the participants award level i.e Bronze, Silver or Gold:
2. Select 'Change dates' button on the right-hand side:
3. Change the dates as appropriate and save.
If a section for Bronze/Silver needs to be backdated 3 months, the Leader will need to change the participant's enrolment date (as long as the new date fits with the age rules) which would allow the participant to add the correct section start date. For Gold awards, the enrolment date does not need to be changed to facilitate this in eDofE, one section can be backdated before the enrolment as long as the participant was 16 during the new date selected.
4. For Silver and Gold account holders, you can change their Direct and Indirect information.
N.B: Timescales cannot be changed if one or more sections have been approved. You would need to re-open the section, change the timescale and re-approve the section again.
