March 24, 2021 Scoutbook Updates

Bug Fixes

  • Add Scout page
    • The First Name label on the Add Scout page has been updated to no longer include the words “Scout, Venturer, etc.” The label was sometimes incorrect and not needed so it was removed.
  • My Scouting Link
    • The link to https://my.scouting.org has been removed from the logged in user’s Scoutbook home page if the user does not have a BSA Member ID.
  • Report Builder
    • An issue where rank requirement completion dates may have been be incorrectly shown when sorted by patrol has been fixed.
  • Unit Rosters
    • An issue that caused a Scout to appear on the unit roster multiple times if an adult has multiple connections to the Scout has been fixed. Scouts with this condition will only be displayed on the roster one time.
  • Venturing Participants (Venturers > 17 years of age)
    • An issue that prevented ranks from being approved for Venturing Participants has been fixed.
    • Multiple issues when a Venturing Participant was also a registered leader in a Troop have been fixed. If you see problems with Venturing Participants who are registered as a leader in a Troop or Pack please post to the Scoutbook Bugs forum.

New Features

  • Religious Emblem Square Knot
    • The Religious Emblem Square Knot is now supported for Lions.
  • Roster Builder
    • The Roster Builder (Print Roster) has a new “Show Last Invited/Login” option. This information was previously always shown but is now optional.
  • RSVP Report
    • Youth with the Calendar Editor leadership role now have access to the RSVP report on the calendar event page.
