Feature Assistant - What is it?

Additional Features in Scoutbook are available when using this tool. It works seamlessly with Scoutbook and provides extra options right in Scoutbook pages when you are logged in.

Note: This tool is Volunteer created and maintained. It is not maintained by BSA.

What is it?
An extension is an add-on tool that is installed into your browser that can provide some time saving features. This extension is available for Chrome desktop browsers, and the add-on for Firefox browsers both mobile and desktop. Once installed, it is automatically updated when new versions become available. This tool has been developed by a volunteer and is the responsibility of the volunteer for issues and support.

The focus of this extension is to provide time saving features to Scoutbook users. It is hoped that the life of this tool will be short and that Scoutbook is able to integrate these feature concepts. This tool is simply an interim workaround to some needed features.
