April 12th ScoutBook Update

On April 12, all adults who are not registered as a member in the BSA will be removed from your unit’s ScoutBook adult roster.


Prior to April 12, unit leaders should check their rosters in the Roster tool at https://my.scouting.org  to ensure all adult leaders listed in ScoutBook are also registered on the official roster or otherwise with the BSA. Action should be taken with the local council to ensure all adult leaders are registered with the BSA. After that date, adults not registered in the BSA will be removed from adult leader unit rosters in ScoutBook.


This does not affect parent connections to their Scouts. Parents will still receive unit messages as they do today.


If you have questions about this change, you can ask them on the Using Scoutbook forum here .


On the unit roster in ScoutBook, unregistered adult leaders will appear having a yellow triangle with an “!” next to their name. Often this is caused by the wrong BSA member ID in their ScoutBook profile. This can be changed by the user with Manage Member ID at http://my.scouting.org  For assistance, contact your local council or ask on the forums: http://discussions.scouting.org   On Aprl 12, 2021 they will be removed.


Note: some Executive Officers (IH) may have a unregistered indicator next to their name because of how they are included in a unit’s registration. Even though they have an indicator, they will not be removed.


Note: unit leaders can find correct member IDs in the Roster Tool at http://my.scouting.org or by contacting your local council.

If someone thinks they are registered in the unit and their name on the Scoutbook unit roster has a triangle on it, they probably are not registered correctly, and they should have their unit committee chair check the unit roster in my.scouting. If they are not on it, contact the council Registrar.
