We set up our families in Scoutbook as soon as they sign up so they can jump in, see the calendar, receive communications and get started on their Scouting adventure. The council office takes a bit longer to get the applications into the system (especially in the fall when there are so many).
The applications that council enters begin automatically importing into our roster. However, this results in many duplicate scouts.
Currently, the only way I am aware of to resolve this is to email the Scoutbook support team and have them merge the Scouts. It would be nice if there was a button for scouts that have been imported from Council to “Match to Scout on Roster”.
