October 20, 2021 Scoutbook Updates

Bug Fixes

  • Eagle Requirement #3
    • An issue that prevented Eagle rank Requirement #3 from auto completing when all Merit Badges are earned has been fixed.
  • Needs Approval Report
    • An issue that caused the Needs Approval report to time out has been fixed.
  • Parent Invitations
    • An issue that prevented parents with no pre-existing accounts that were invited to Scoutbook by the unit from logging in has been fixed.
  • Merit Badge Counselor List Upload
    • An issue that prevented Merit Badge Counselor lists to be uploaded by a Council Admin has been fixed.
  • Nova Awards
    • An issue that caused the wrong Nova award to be placed on the Purchase Order has been fixed. The first Nova award earned by a Scout will be the patch with subsequent Nova awards being the pin.
  • Roster
    • An issue that caused the :warning: icon to show for unit members in the registration grace period has been fixed. The grace period is the earlier of 60 days or when the unit’s recharter is posted by the Council.
