May 11, 2022 Scoutbook Updates

Bug Fixes

  • Charter Org
    • An issue that prevented the Charter Org from automatically being updated in Scoutbook has been fixed.
  • Connections
    • An issue that caused parent connections to Scouts to end when the Scout turned 18 has been fixed. Parents will no longer be disconnected from their Scouts that are 18 years of age or older. Units will need to re-establish these connections that were previously removed.
  • Den/Patrol Admins
    • An issue that caused Den Admin positions to be added to Assistant Scoutmasters has been fixed.
    • The Den Admin optional role will not longer appear on the Add Position screen for Tiger Den Leader, Den Leader or Webelos Den Leader as the role is automatically created.
  • Life Rank
    • An issue that prevented Eagle Required Merit badges earned for Star rank from appearing in the list for Life rank has been fixed.
  • Pack Membership
    • An issue that prevented membership in a Pack from ending when Member Update brought in a Troop membership for the Scout has been fixed.
  • Reports
    • Cub Scout History, Scouts BSA History, Venturing History, Sea Scout History, and OA Eligibility Reports
      • An issue was corrected in which activity logs/history were not displaying all activities for Scouts and Scouters when individuals previously had two accounts/MIDs that were subsequently merged.
    • Scouts BSA History
      • An issue that caused a Patrol name to be printed at the top of the Scouts BSA History Report if the Scout was formerly in a patrol but currently is not has been fixed.
