New Features

  • Parent Connection to Scout
    • A new search feature that allows a parent to find, and connect to their own Scout in Scoutbook without the need for unit intervention has been released. The parent can navigate to their My Connections page (My Dashboard -> Administration -> My Account -> My Connections) and click the new “Connect to your Scout” link. The search requires the Scout’s BSA Member ID, last name, zip code (as recorded in Scoutbook) and date of birth. Once the Scout is found and confirmed, the parent will be connected to the Scout with Full Control.
