Bug Fixes

  • Advancement Sync
    • An issue that caused Scouts moving from one program to another without being on the official roster of the new unit to remain in advancement sync has been fixed. When a Scout’s last membership in a unit is ended or when a Scout’s membership in the last unit where the Scout is on the official roster ends, the Scout will be removed from advancement sync. When the Scout has a membership added for a unit where the Scout is on the official roster, advancement sync will be restored.
  • Default Unit
    • An issue that caused the default unit when starting a Merit Badge for Scouts registered in multiple units to change has been fixed.
  • Life Rank Merit Badges
    • An issue that caused Merit Badges to be assigned to Life Rank incorrectly has been fixed. Merit Badges will be assigned to Life Rank based on the completion date of the Merit Badge.
