General - ScoutBook helpful tips Posted Apr. 12, 2018
Here are some helpful tips on what to do in ScoutBook when a scout transfers to a new unit, like when a Webelo crosses over into a Boy Scout Troop;
Prior to moving a Scout to another Unit, please see that the following is performed.
1. End all Leadership positions
2. Make sure to add the new Unit Admin as a connection to the Scout with full control.
3. Remove all Adult Connections in the previous Unit by clicking Pack Roster > select the Scout > Scout Connections > locate and select the Leader > Remove Connection.
4. Edit the current membership to add an End date. You can do this by clicking Pack Roster > select the Scout > Scout's Membership > select the Current Membership > add Date Ended > Update.
5. Add the Scout under the new Unit's roster by clicking My Dashboard > My Account > My Connections > Select the Scout > Scout's Membership > +Add > Enter the Council, Unit Type, Unit Number, BSA Unit Description, Patrol(optional), and a Start Date > Update.
6. The New Unit Admin can approve the Scout by clicking Troop Roster > select the Scout > Scout's Membership > Current Membership > check off Position Approved > Update.
7. Leave your connection to the Scout until you know that the other Unit has approved the Scout, then remove your connection.
Please note, all application processes continue to be handled through the Council. The Scout's registration under the new Unit must be fully processed for Scoutbook to continue syncing their Advancement.
