The auto update of Merit Badge Counselors in ScoutBook should be a big help.
I’m wondering about a few things:
email notifications to Merit Badge Counselors – welcome, status change, etc. Will the councils still have control of the content of those messages?
Notifications of the actions taken by the update process. Did it succeed or fail? How many counselors were added, deleted or changed? What errors were encountered? Receiving error messages is obviously important.
Our annual Merit Badge Counselor renewal typically takes a long time. I’m concerned about how the auto update will interact with our processes. Is there a way to disable the auto update while the data is flux?
Is there a chance that the changes involved will help with duplicate ID issues? I’ve not found definitive documentation on how to resolve duplicate IDs vs. forum posts to try this or try that. Loss of the support services has made this more challenging.
Feel free to add your questions and observations about the auto update.
