Alternate ScoutBook login

Here’s one that may not come up too often…if I log into ScoutBook using my home Council credentials, everything is fine, BUT, if it happens that I am signed into My.Scouting.org under my alternate Member ID (Area level) I get thrown into a completely different Council in ScoutBook. I can work abound that, I just thought you’d like to know.


You have 2 Scoutbook accounts There is no council associated with your Area MID so when the Scoutbook account was created, it probably didn’t know where to put you. One issue I see is you have the same e-mail address on both Scoutbook accounts. This is not supposed to happen and can cause issues.

I suggest we delete the Scoutbook account used for the area and that you only log in to Scoutbook with your my.scouting.org ID associated with your non-area Member ID.
