January 12, 2021 Scoutbook Updates

Bug Fixes

  • MB Counselor Search
    • An issue that prevented Mates in a Sea Scout Ship from searching for Merit Badge Counselors has been fixed. The MB Counselor Search link will now appear on the Ship’s Scoutbook page for Mates.

New Features

  • Merit Badge Counselor Position
    • The Merit Badge Counselor (MBC) position page has been modified to remove the “I Agree” checkbox. Since the Merit Badge Counselor position is added and removed only by changes in ScoutNET, the “I Agree” checkbox is not needed. This update makes changing the MBC’s listing preference easier.

Miscellaneous Features

  • References
    • The BSA is no longer publishing the Scouts BSA Requirements book. Mention of the Scouts BSA Requirements book has been removed from the References pages.
  • Retired Awards
    • Text on awards that were retired on December 31, 2020 has been changed from “To be retired” to “Retired”
