Hints and Tips

I am putting together a list of helpful hints and tips on using the BSA electronic tools so that they save units time. If anyone has ideas can you add them to this thread?

Bridging
You can electronically transfer registrations from packs to troops when Scouts bridge over. For instructions, see: Transferring from another unit in the Same Council - Scoutbook Knowledge Base
IMPORTANT: make sure the Scout has all their Cub advancements recorded, including Arrow of Light, before moving them over!

Eagle Application
Did you know, Scouts, parents and leaders can print a draft copy of an Eagle Application directly from Scoutbook or Internet Advancment? This saves tons of time and typos! Log into Scoutbook, navigate to the Scout, then click on reports.

OA Elections Report
Troops can get a jump start on figuring out who is eligible for election into the Order of the Arrow through the OA report. The OA report is available in the troop reports section of both Internet Advancement and Scoutbook.
