Bug Fixes

  • Eagle Palms
    • An issue that caused the incorrect Merit Badges to be assigned to Eagle Palms if the Scout completed Eagle on the 2012 or 2013 versions of the Eagle Rank has been fixed.
  • Membership Status Icon
    • After the fix for Scout’s Membership Status icon, the Membership Status Icon on an adult’s profile page was always gray even if the leadership position was approved. The status icon has been hidden from adult profile pages. Use the Membership page to check the status of positions.
  • Merit Badge Version Dates
    • An issue that caused the version dates of a Merit Badge to always display the current years as the end year has been fixed. For any versions other than the current version of a Merit Badge, the end year will be the year prior to the start of the newer version.

New Features

  • Connect to Your Scout
    • On an adult’s connection screen, Connect to Your Scout has been renamed Connect to Your Scout as Parent/Guardian
    • The Zip Code has been removed from the Connect to Your Scout as Parent/Guardian screen. The Scout’s BSA Member ID, Last Name and Date of Birth are still required to use this function.
  • Troop Report Builder
    • Cyber Chip (Grades 4-5) has been added to Report Builder for Troops.
