Scoutbook.com. The whole Scouting experience rolled into one great web app.
Enhance Your Scouting Experience
With Scoutbook, you can begin tracking your Scouts progress from the first knot learned in Tiger, all the way to finalizing his Eagle Scout project.
Forget the hassle of trying to upkeep old binders full of logged paperwork. Scoutbook does this for you. Simply input the Scouting task completed and all documentation is automatically saved. Scoutbook can even capture images and video at the time of completion to be added along with the certificate of completion. The memory of achievement will always be with your family thanks to Scoutbook!
Before Scoutbook, Leaders were spending much of their volunteering time trying to keep track and report back to parents on their child’s progress in Scouting. Now, from anywhere at any time, parents have the ability to log on and see exactly where their child’s progress is. This gives Leaders the thing they need the most: TIME WITH SCOUTS.
Achieving something is FUN! Scouts should have the ability to share that excitement with all. Thanks to Scoutbook, they now can. From any mobile device or computer, Scouts can now share via social media or with their fellow Scoutbook friends their achievements in Scouting.
What Is Scoutbook?
Scoutbook is a Scout’s “Advancement Book in the Cloud” – It connects Scouts, Scouters and other leaders. With Scoutbook, you can discover the latest Boy Scouts of America (BSA) news, thousands of Scouting videos, all the Cub Scout and Boy Scout references and much more right at your finger tips. Track your Scout’s advancement as they advance from Tiger all the way to Eagle Scout and beyond with this FREE advancement tracking web app.
Like an “App,” but better! Scoutbook’s mobile site works on all mobile and tablet platforms like iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry and others. Unlike traditional apps that need to be installed and usually cost money, Scoutbook provides a FREE Scouting reference that is updated on the fly and never requires you to download patches or updates.
TAC Interface with Scoutbook
ALL SCOUTBOOK UNITS MUST ACTIVATE YOUTH ADVANCEMENT SYNC
All units that use Scoutbook must activate the youth advancement sync now. Don’t procrastinate! Don’t wait until the last minute; and definitely don’t wait until the week you need to purchase your advancements! If advancement sync is not activated for your unit by March 1, 2018, you will no longer be able to approve advancements in Scoutbook. Extending the deadline is not anticipated. For more information and instructions on how to activate the Scoutbook youth advancement sync, see this page: http://bit.ly/syncadv
ONCE SYNC’D HOW TO PRINT OUT REPORT FOR COUNCIL AND SCOUT SHOPS
This second video will show you how to print out the report you need to bring to your council to purchase advancements: http://bit.ly/syncadv All councils and Program Supply Centers have been notified that they are to accept the unit advancement form from Scoutbook for sync’d units in lieu of the form from Internet Advancement. Any questions can be sent to: Scoutbook.firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
BSA and TAC Units Moving Forward
Starting this spring, the free version of Scoutbook Lite (SB Lite) will replace the Internet Advancement tool that had been used for tracking Scout advancements. SB Lite is designed to unify and bring under one interface as many unit leader tasks as possible with unit leaders only needing a single access. It is worth noting that there is a full version of Scoutbook that comes with a small annual fee. The main difference between Scoutbook (SB) and SB Lite is that the full version provides unit leaders greater flexibility. Additionally, the full version of SB includes helpful tools for interactive calendars, reminders, messaging and unit/Scout financials.
