November 23, 2020 Scoutbook Updates

Scoutbook Domain Change

  • Scoutbook has been moved to https://scoutbook.scouting.org A redirect form https://www.scoutbook.com has been put in place. If you have Scoutbook pages bookmarked, please update them. Users of the volunteer written and supported Feature Assistant Extension for Scoutbook for Chrome and Firefox may get a pop-up asking for permission to run the extension on the new domain. The URL for the sandbox is now https://scoutbookpp.scouting.org.
    This change will make Single Sign On and reports more reliable because they are all running on the same domain.
  • BSA IT is currently working to fix an issue that is directing users to Internet Advancement instead of Scoutbook. There are 2 workarounds:
    1. Use an Incognito or Private window. See Finding Your Browser’s Private Browsing Mode if you need help.
    2. Clear your cache and scoutbook.scouting.org cookies in your browser. Note clearing all cookies, not just the scoutbook.scouting.org cookies will affect other web sites you visit.
