January 23, 2019 Scoutbook Updates

Bug Fixes

  • Calendar Reminders
    • An issue that prevented BBCode from being formatted properly when used in calendar reminders has been corrected. Reminders with BBCode will be sent with the desired formatting.
  • Posting Notes on Awards
    • An issue that caused an error when posting notes on awards, ranks, merit badges, etc. has been fixed. Users will once again be able to add notes.

New Features

  • Print Blue Cards
    • Scoutbook now supports printing Blue Cards on plain paper or cardstock. Under Print Blue Cards, at the top of the search results is an option to Print on blank 8.5"x11" paper. Select this option to print on plain paper. The entire Blue Card, including all headings, lines, etc. will be printed. Do not select Print on blank 8.5"x11" paper if using the pre-printed Blue Card sheets. NOTE: there is still a limit of 500 Blue Cards at a time so you might need to break up your search.
  • Retired Youth Leadership Positions
    • The youth leadership positions of Leave No Trace Trainer and Venture Patrol Leader were retired on January 1, 2016. If one of these positions is selected, Scoutbook will display a message saying the positions were retired and to use Outdoor Ethics Guide or Patrol Leader respectively.
