January 2, 2024 Scoutbook Updates

Bug Fixes

  • Disappearing Admin Roles
    • An issue that caused some Admin roles to disappear each night after a unit has rechartered has been fixed. These admin roles have been restored and should remain in Scoutbook.
      Note: The script to restore the admin roles and remove duplicate admin roles has been run. All admin roles removed by this bug should now be restored.

New Features

  • 2024 Scouts BSA Rank and Award Changes
    • Scoutbook has been updated with the 2024 Scouts BSA Rank and Award changes. Some merit badges that were updated have a new 2024 version. Other merit badge changes did not require new versions as the updated wording is equivalent to the previous version’s wording. See Scouts BSA 2024 Rank and Merit Badge updates | Boy Scouts of America for details.
  • Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award
    • The Glenn A. and Melinda W. Adams National Eagle Scout Service Project of the Year Award is now supported by Scoutbook. Scouts who have received this award will have it automatically added to Scoutbook 24 hours after the Council adds the award to the Scout’s record. It can not be recorded by individuals or units and no mention of it will appear in the Scoutbook account of Scouts that did not earn the award.
