Bug Fixes

  • None

New Features

  • Membership
    • Den Leader Assignments: Scoutbook now allows dens to be assigned to Den Leaders that were added to the unit via Member Update. Go to the leader’s Membership page, click on the Den Leader position, select the den and click update. The current position will be ended and a new one created with the assigned den.
    • Scout Transfer: A transfer tool has been added. To transfer a Scout from another unit to your unit in Scoutbook, go to the Unit Roster and click the Transfer In Scout button. You must have the Scout’s BSA member ID, last name, date of birth, gender and zip code as currently recorded in Scoutbook. For transfers between a Pack and Troop, the old membership will be ended in Scoutbook. For transfers between Troops, Crews or Ships, an option to end the old membership will be given. See Transferring a Scout Between Units (SB) for more details.
