Internet Advancement Tutorial

Is there a tutorial available that will help me better understand how to use Internet Advancement? Also, can anyone tell me where my camping, hiking & service logs have gone?

What are your position(s) / role(s) within your unit? And how are you looking to use Internet Advancement?

Troop Committee Chair and ASM. My husband is also the new Scoutmaster and I’m helping with the computer part of things.

Are you looking for help with advancements? The new activity logs? Or both?

I am familiar with Scoutbook itself. I have no experience with internet advancement and now I’m confused regarding what merged and didn’t, etc.

OK, then I think you are looking for help docs for the activity logs, which have been moved from Scoutbook to Internet Advancement:

How Do I Record a Unit Activity Using Internet Advancement (IA)

I’m not sure it is possible for one person to be registered in BSA’s systems and on the official roster as both the Troop Committee Chair and an ASM. You can be one or the other, but not both.


There’s a lot of discussion of this on other threads on the forums here.

Welcome to the Community!! I hope you find what you are looking for.

I’m on the official roster as troop committee chair I believe
