Hiking/Camping/Service/Long Cruise Logs Changing

So im not sure if this has been mentioned in this thread or not. But I have been inputting service hours into the new logs on IA2 for my scouts but they aren’t adding up to the total hours completed on their profile. Am I missing a step somewhere?

Anyone else amused by the Bryan on Scouting headline today?

I think the article should include a link to this thread to help navigate the transition to the “faster way”



I actually got a copy of this article sent to me by another leader in my unit. They seemed to think it was funny, too.

I groaned and laughed out loud when I saw the Bryan on Scouting post … I found a list of 8 or more bugs in about 10 minutes the other day as I was trying to log camping. #NotReadyForPrimetime


Scoutbook would make a poor boat anchor.

there is no support for the product…takes forEVER to get answers to questions. I tried this thing and I can’t get it to work…council couldn’t make it work either.

so i’m sticking to what works…paper.

Where did you ask your questions? Most questions in the forums are answered within an hour (usually much less) of being asked.

I have a service project that was completed and entered 5-30-20. The pending items shows the number of troop participants. Is there a link to an approval page or something? How long will ‘Pending Items’ remain on the screen? To me it appears there must be a requirement for an approval.

@MichaelCherne - the approval would look like this in scoutbook.scouting.org:
