Welcome! This forum has a treasure trove of great info – Scouters helping Scouters! Just a heads up, though - all content, information, and opinions shared on this forum are those of the author, not the BSA.
An issue that caused the wrong Percent Complete values to be displayed for some Scouts BSA Ranks has been fixed.
Arrow of Light
An issue that caused Arrow of Light to be auto-completed before all of the requirements were complete has been fixed.
An issue that caused the link to Scoutbook to be omitted from the invitation e-mail has been fixed.
Merit Badge Counselors
An issue that prevented some Merit Badge Counselors from setting their Listing Preference to Any Council (Worldwide) has been fixed.

Payment Log Report
The Payment Log Report has been updated for better presentation of prompt sections on mobile devices.

Unregistered Leader Indicator
A warning icon is added next to the name of any adult on a unit roster whose BSA# in Scoutbook is not registered with the BSA. Adults already registered in another position that requires a Criminal Background Check and Youth Protection Training will not display the icon. These users will be removed from the unit’s roster effective March 1 if they have not been registered.
