January 5, 2021 Scoutbook Updates

Bug Fixes

  • Automotive Maintenance Merit Badge
    • The order of requirements on the Quick Entry screen for the Automotive Maintenance Merit Badge has been corrected.
  • Camping Merit Badge
    • A typo was fixed in Camping Merit Badge requirement 3c. The requirement had one asterisk when it should have had two.

New Features

  • 2021 Scouts BSA Rank Updates
    • First Class requirement 4b added the words “while on a campout or hike”. The wording was just updated, a new version of the rank was not created in Scoutbook.
    • Life Rank requirement 3 was updated to better describe the expectation for earning Eagle Required Merit Badges. The requirement to have earned 7 Eagle Required Merit Badges and 11 Merit Badges total did not change. A new version of LIfe Rank was not created in Scoutbook.
