Easiest way for parents to sign on

Our pack is new to Scoutbook, we are wondering if there is an easy way for parents to sign in/up?

it kind of depends on Councils - go to a Scout - do you see parents? if so click INVITE (if their email is correct) - otherwise you have to add the parents and then invite them

Make sure that you search for existing accounts when you are “adding” the parent. My best success has been by using the email address that they put on the new scout application. They may not turn up, but at least you’ve checked for an account first.


Its an extra step, but asking Council to check for an existing BSA ID# for the parent can help avoid duplicate accounts. You can search by BSA ID.
