September 29, 2021 Scoutbook Updates

Bug Fixes

  • Merit Badges
    • An issue that caused duplicated completed Merit Badges to appear in a Scout’s record has been fixed.
  • Search Unit Payment Log
    • An issue that caused the Search Unit Payment Log function to not return all members with data but did include them in the export CSV file has been fixed.

New Features

  • Merit Badges
    • When a Merit Badge (MB) reaches 100% complete, the overall MB will be marked complete with the completion date being the latest date that a requirement is marked complete.
    • If all completed requirements are marked Counselor Approved, the overall MB is automatically marked Counselor Approved. Conversely, if one or more completed requirement is not marked Counselor Approved, the overall MB is not automatically marked Counselor Approved.
    • If the overall MB is manually marked Counselor Approved, all completed requirements are automatically marked Counselor Approved.
    • Requirements without a completion date are not marked Counselor Approved.
  • Roster Updates
    • Scouts and Leaders on the unit roster in Scoutbook who are not on the official roster at my.scouting.org will display the :warning: icon. This indicates the unit needs to register the individual before the 90 day grace period expires or they will be removed from the unit in Scoutbook. Unit Commissioners will not display the icon and will not be removed for non-registration in the unit.
      Note: Unit Commissioners are being incorrectly flagged with the :warning: icon. The developers are aware of the issue and will fix it soon.
