June 10, 2020 Scoutbook Updates

Bug Fixes

  • Connection Search
    • An issue that caused the search function to hang if the Scout did not have the local council set in the profile has been fixed.
  • History Reports
    • An issue that caused the * on the Venturing, Sea Scout and some items on the Scouts BSA History Reports to appear on items that were already leader approved has been fixed. The * will now appear only on items that are pending approval as the note at the bottom of the report states.
  • Merit Badge Approval
    • An issue that prevented leaders from approving Merit Badges if the Scout was dual registered in a Troop and Post has been fixed.
  • Report Builder
    • Sea Scout Ranks have been split from Scouts BSA Ranks and put in their own grouping when building a report with Report Builder.
  • Scouts BSA Recognition Report
    • An issue where data on the Scouts BSA Recognition Report overflowed the page when the web browser window was narrow has been fixed.

New Features

  • Order of the Arrow Positions
    • Order of the Arrow leadership positions of Chief, Vice Chief, Treasurer and Secretary for Chapter, Lodge, Section, Regional and National have been added to the Scout’s leadership page.
