Bug Fixes

  • None

New Features

  • Incomplete Merit Badge Report
    • The Incomplete Merit Badge Report has been updated to help units identify the versions of merit badges scouts are working on in the Scoutbook system. This is needed as in future, the Advancement team wants Merit Badges limited to the most current version, and one previous version in Scoutbook. Scouts can still work on an older version as the Guide to Advancement says, but these older versions have to be managed outside the Scoutbook environment. To use the Incomplete Merit Badge Report for this purpose > Turn off Requirements and sort by Merit Badge.
