I know this topic was discussed briefly in September, but I would like to bring it up again hoping that Scoutbook will make a change. Please uncheck the Bcc box as the default for messages. When scouts send out messages, we cannot tell who received the messages. When a leader responds, the only the scout receives it. This does not follow the BSA’s 2-deep leadership protocol.
If parents are worried about their scout’s email addresses getting out, then perhaps they should not set an individual account for their scout, and use only the parent’s email address for correspondence.
It has been suggested that the scouts uncheck the box before sending a message. Sure, that would be an easy solution. But many scouts in their teens are not going to remember to uncheck the box each time. It is easier for adults, who don’t want the recipients of their messages known, to click Bcc.
Please reconsider this function and uncheck the box.
