Bug Fixes

  • Calendar Editor
    • An issue that prevented Scouts with the Calendar Editor role from adding new or editing existing calendar events has been fixed.
  • Connections
    • Positions were being incorrectly displayed on the Scout’s Connection page. The Scout’s connection page will now only show the connection type (Adult Leader, Merit Badge Counselor, Other Family Member, Parent/Guardian) below the adult’s name.
  • Current Positions
    • When clicking on an adult’s name from a Ship roster, the Current Positions and Roles section was missing the unit type and number. This was inconsistent compared to other unit types. The Ship number has been added to be consistent with other unit types.
  • Lifesaving Merit Badge
    • An issue with the number of sub-requirements needed to complete Lifesaving Merit Badge requirements 2, 15 and 16 has been fixed.
  • Merit Badge Counselor Quick Entry
    • An issue that caused the Quick Entry function for Merit Badge Counselors to time out has been fixed.
  • Report Builder
    • An issue was fixed where Requirement 3 was missing from Cyber Chip Award (Grades 6-8) and Requirement 2 was missing from Cyber Chip Award (Grades 4-5).
    • An issue that caused some award requirement names to be blank was fixed.
  • Roster
    • Due to ongoing problems with the yellow warning triangle :warning: on adults and Scouts not registered with the unit, the :warning: has been hidden. It will be restored once the issues are resolved.
  • Scout Leadership
    • An issue that prevented Scouts from entering their own leadership positions has been fixed.
