We Have Made Moving Scouts Between Patrols and Dens Easier
Moving One or More Scouts to a New Den/Patrol via the Roster Page
Below the Den/Patrol roster, Unit and Den/Patrol admins will see a new button labeled Reassign Scout(s). Clicking this button will display a list of Scouts in the unit.
Select those Scouts you want to move to THIS den/patrol, click then click the Invite button at the bottom of the screen.
The Scout(s) position in the previous Den/Patrol (including no Den/Patrol) will be ended and a new position started with the end and start dates set to the current date.
Any leadership position(s) in the old den/patrol will be ended (unit positions will continue).
No e-mails will be sent.
Moving One Scout to a New Den/Patrol via the Membership Page
There is a new Reassign Scout button on the Scout's Membership page. When you click this button, a pop-up menu will display a list of Dens/Patrols (including No Den/Patrol) in the unit.
Select the new Den/Patrol and click OK.
The Scout's current position will be ended and a new position started with the end and start dates set to the current date.
Any leadership position(s) in the old Den/Patrol will be ended (unit positions will continue.)
If the person moving the Scout is not a Unit admin, an e-mail will be sent to all Unit and Den/Patrol admins notifying them of the change.
Both methods of moving Scouts will work even if the unit has filled its subscription. This fixes an issue where moving Scouts to a new Den/Patrol would fail unless the unit had 1 or more remaining Scoutbook seats.

A REPORT FOR BOARDS OF REVIEW
Looking for a Board of Review Report in Scoutbook? Use the Boy Scout History Report.
The Boy Scout History Report is a report that can be used for multiple purposes. One is as a detailed summary of a Scout's advancement to utilize at a Board of Review.
The Boy Scout History Report is also a good summary report to use when preparing a Scout's Eagle Scout application.
The Boy Scout History Report can be found on an individual's Scout's page under Reports.
SCOUTBOOK TRAIL GUIDE FOR PARENTS
One of the hardest things about starting any new application is getting people to use it. In addition, there is a LOT thrown at a new parent when they first join Scouts. There’s a lot to take in over a very short period.
We want to help a little along that path with a Parent’s trail guide. It’s a three-page document you can hand out, or share with your scout parents to help them understand some of the basic things they need to know and do.
This is not meant to give them everything – for example, the basics around advancement are explained but not gone into in depth. We also didn’t go into the depth of RSVP or Permission slips on the calendar. This covers the basic things to get most parents started using the tool.
