Scout Central Upgrades

We’ve listened to our Scout Central Users and recently made some exciting and practical changes to enhance the usability and functionality of the system.

 

Scout Register Enhancements

  • Both Youth and Leaders are now able to export a PDF of their award scheme progress to use in support of peak awards.
  • Leaders are able to distinguish when a badge has been achieved and when a badge has been presented.
  • Leaders can view and mark off presented badges in a table showing all outstanding badges in the formation.

User Suggested Enhancements

  • Programs have default start and finish times now based on previous meeting durations.
  • A “Mark All” option is available in register sheet now to mark attendance.

Manual Member Add

  • This feature allows Leaders to create temporary members in situations where new members join and members link between Sections, but a record has not been set up or transferred to the section yet.
  • All temporary members expire after a given time (outlined on a Branch by Branch basis) unless they are joined to an official record (automatically or manually).
  • This feature will be enabled on a Branch by Branch basis.

Leader Personal Program Archive

  • Leaders now have an additional tab under “About Me” called “My Programs.” This is a collection of all programs a Leader has contributed to the creation of, including current and previous appointments.
  • Leaders are able to view all programs in their “My Program” page.
  • Leaders cannot currently copy them back into a new program, but can use them as a reference.

Scout Central Support Videos

  • Support videos for the Progress Chart and Program Builder have been updated.
