1/24/2020 V0.45.0 Features and minor improvements


  • Add the ability to easily restore scout accounts used for the Unit Accounting ( any account with a Scout Last Name = ACCOUNT) where membership was ended. Go to your My Connections and click the “Restore Finance Scout Accounts” button. Clears end date and resets start date to current date.
  • Adult activity logs can be imported by adult owning the account. This is provided to help with the cleanup of duplicated accounts. An Import CSV option is available on the activity log pages.

Minor Improvements

  • When Unit Accounting is used, the default detail transaction view for the Paybalance Report is by date, and is now sorted by related transactions. All related transactions should now be clustered for easier reading.
