I’ve been asking Scoutbook tech support for months (literally started asking in January) to reset the information for our Troop’s records on Scoutbook. We use another database to track our information, but a couple years ago tested Scoutbook to see if it would work for us. It did not, we stayed with our other database and are happy with it. Now with the legacy internet advancement going away and the forced switch to Scoutbook for Advancement, we want the data from our testing wiped out.
Some examples of what is in there that will make it difficult to do advancements moving forward:
- Scouts in patrols that don’t really exist. Don’t want to spend the time updating patrols, just want all our scouts listed in No Patrol. The scouts that we tested into a patrol seem trapped there. The only option is to reassign to another patrol.
- We tested the advancement features of Scoutbook and awarded scouts ranks, merit badges, and awards they didn’t really earn. (this was all prior to BSA buying Scoutbook and databases merging). I’ve spot checked some scouts, but without going through each one, I can’t be sure they are all correct. We have 70 scouts - do you know how long it would take to check every record for every scout.
Please, can our database just be reset/wiped to what is in Internet Advancement?
