June 13, 2019 Scoutbook Updates

Bug Fixes

  • Needs Approval Report
    • In some instances, Cub Scout awards were appearing on a Troop’s Needs Approval report. Troop leaders are not authorized to approve Cub Scout awards. Cub Scout awards will no longer appear on a Troop’s Needs Approval report.
  • Export/Backup Files
    • The Advancement export/backup csv file was missing some Scout rank requirements. This has been corrected.
  • Sea Scouts Marksmanship Award
    • The Sea Scouts Markmanship Award was allowing the award to be completed without selecting a discipline. This has been corrected. A discipline is now required to complete the award.

New Features

  • To protect Scoutbook from malicious users, reCAPTCHA has been implemented. The version being used wil not ask the user to click a box, identify pictures, enter hard to read words, etc. but instead does the work in the background. If reCAPTCHA believes you are not a human, you will get a pop-up asking you to refresh Scoutbook and try again. Make sure the site fully loads (the X in your browser changes to the refresh icon) before clicking the LOG IN button.
