Offline mode for use at summer camp or other locations with no data connection

Is there something for this in the backlog? I am still finding updates from last year’s summer camp that have not been entered/approved in Scoutbook. This is primarily for requirements that are worked on within the troop and/or patrol.

I picture that this would have to be via a mobile app that can upload/download, keep a journal of changes, and reconcile those changes after camp.


Hi, @DavidReed5, I know that this has been requested before (I requested it myself), but haven’t heard anything specific from the BSA about that becoming available.

Yes, there are many more of us that have chimed in on this (wilderness isn’t covered with cell towers and WiFi). One can hope that as ScoutBook is rewritten (ala IA2.0), that such an offline feature or app is also developed since it will have a modern API interface. :crossed_fingers:t2::crossed_fingers:t2::crossed_fingers:t2::crossed_fingers:t2::crossed_fingers:t2::crossed_fingers:t2:


Yes Please! An app with offline functionality to track!
