Adult Leader WITHOUT a Scout in the Troop

We have an adult leader who can not use the scouting app because they are not connected to a scout in the troop. I can not connect him to a scout in the troop because he doesn’t have a scout in the troop. What should I do so he can have access to the app?

The Scouting app is only for Scouts and Parents - it is made to manage one scout not a unit - so in this case the user would not be able to sign in - they can continue to use the web interface

Ok Thank You Donovan.

How do you keep track of payments for a leader without a scout in the troop? Or separate them from their child?

Scoutbook does not have a way to track fees and payments for non-scouts.

The only workaround that I know is to include the parent data on the scout’s payment log with notes.

I have been doing that for the parents, but I am the scoutmaster and don’t have a youth in the troop. I want to be transparent with anything financial and was hoping by posting something about this issue Scoutbook would add that option to all members.

This is in the backlog. We have no idea if or when the BSA will implement it.

The only workaround is to create a fake child for yourself.
