I’ve been using Scoutbook for a while, (since before the BSA ended up buying it and making some changes), and I felt that some changes should be made that might be beneficial to all.
As per the topic, I’m proposing that adding Hiking, Camping and Service Hours becomes more user friendly. On the old Scoutbook interface, you could directly do this yourself in scoutbook. At some point, it seems a change was made to require you to go into internet advancement instead. I’m not going to pretend I understand that decision, but if Single Sign On was implemented, then in theory your Scoutbook login and internet advancement login should be identical, eliminating the need to resign in. Putting that aside, putting these three things on a different website all together further increases frustration and complexity of adding these. Now people have to learn a new interface on a website.
If moving Hiking, Camping and Service Hours to internet advancement was done for the purpose of requiring a Unit Leader to approve it, wouldn’t it have made more sense to just add approval to Scoutbook, instead of pirating it and making a good program that was for the most part user friendly, not that?
All in all (maybe it’s an unpopular opinion?), but how we log activities in Scoutbook should be changed, as the way it is currently, is not user friendly and makes more work for those who track their activities online.
