Thank you for the Dark Screen, it really helps!!
My 3 sons have been in Ship 564 since March ‘19, not what’s listed in Scoutbook.
Christopher and Dylan are Eagles, but Scout Book doesn’t say that, as far as I can find.
All 3 of my sons, Dylan Chris and Mathew Staffed NYLT In December 2018, and took NYLT as participants back in 2016-not listed in Scoutbook, that I found so far.
All 3 sons and I, are Lifeguards (Red Cross and BSA. Could this be part of the record?
Dylan , Chris and I are also Red Cross WSI and LGI (Lifeguard Instructors/CPR/AED Instructors for The Professional Rescuers). Could this be also listed, since the BSA camps often request our certifications when we work at various camps.
Also, Sea Scout Advancement record: Sea Scouts are allowed to be signed-off on any requirement, Apprentice, Ordinary, AB, or Quartermaster, in any order, regardless of their rank. (Guide to Advancement). Apprentices May be signed-off on requirements for Quartermaster or AB whenever they are ready.
Currently, the software states incorrectly that sea Scouts May only work on their next rank. Please change the program to allow Sea Scouts to be signed off for any requirement, regardless of their rank.
Thank you for your patience with us as we learn your program.
Wow. I downloaded this bc Scoutbook was constantly telling me that if I liked the site, why not get the wonderful app? Big mistake.
If you think this app is going to be remotely similar to Scoutbook, you’re wrong. The interface is a bit snappy, but that’s where the comparison ends. At first, I couldn’t even see my youngest son until I tired going into the web interface to re-save my son as a connection to me. It never was a problem in Scoutbook, why did the app forget I was his parent? I’m Key-3 and I can do anything in Scoutbook, but I tried to submit a single adventure requirement for my son (as a test) and it didn’t ask for a completion date or anything, it just changed the status to “submitted for approval” and I couldn’t do anything else. Approval from whom? I’m the Cubmaster? Now, I can’t even edit it and remove it from his profile (but I can on the web interface). This app has a LONG way to go to come close to Scoutbook. I deleted it less than 10m after install... I’ll stick to the web interface. It’s cleaner and more functional.
Lots of functionality missing
It’s nice to see an official app rather than using a web clip to access ScoutBook. However a lot of the functionality still isn’t there. Some of the major things that need to be added first would be calendar support added and integration into the native Calendar app would be awesome. Another major thing missing is I don’t have access to was the contact info of Troop members and the ability to send messages via the app. Another huge thing missing is support for Face-ID, it’s rather annoying to have to go lookup my password every time when you support Touch ID which is now older biometric security. Overall I think the app is moving in the right direction but needs to have a lot more functionality added to its since it’s still faster for me to just login into the website and do whatever I need, since a lot of stuff isn’t supported in the app.
* I understand this is just a beta and am more than happy to revise my review at a later date once more functionality is added.
