So question if a scout is not attached to a parent, how do you connect them? Is it something you do at the troop or at council?
Pindle Costello, Sr.

Two is one, one is none. Always have a backup.
Stephen Woerner
43:38
If there is a conflict between what’s recorded in the handbook and what’s recorded in Scoutbook which do you go with?
graceayscue
45:28
If one is more complete than the other - then we get the information entered both places. If there’s an actual contradiction - that might require more digging. Sometimes the leader has access to Scoutbook but not the handbook, or the other way around. Scoutbook shows who made the entry -
Maura Maupin
46:41
Can you access parent/scout access so they can’t mark it as complete?
Maura Maupin
46:49
limit
graceayscue
47:42
In the past you could - but possibly not any more. Still a leader has to approve it, so Tr 65 discourages parents/scouts from entering things
Jo / Bill Stanley P-16 / T-16
49:04
I think the post note part can also be read by the parents
Maura Maupin
51:23
Who sets who can approve? Is it only SM and ASM?
Lori Ludas
52:01
And Advancement Coordinator if you have one.
graceayscue
52:32
The Scoutmaster gives that ability to other leaders -
Maura Maupin
55:24
So if a scout has a leadership position under first class, does it populate or only first and above?
Maura Maupin
59:42
Cyber chip how do you document a recharge?
Stephen Woerner
01:00:33
Can you restrict parents to view-only? I thought I saw that option once when exploring. Can you restrict about ASM’s control over their own kids in the troop?
mckaddar
01:01:21
I think you can just assign a new date to the existing Cyber Chip
Pindle Costello, Sr.
01:05:21
There's a countdown for the Cyber Chip on Scoutbook.
Pindle Costello, Sr.
01:13:03
Last week was the last class for Medicine MB

Maura Maupin
01:15:50
So what does that extension do?
Maura Maupin
01:17:21
So is this black pug something you would ask when you register for a camp? Like is this common knowledge at a camp?
Gary Furbee
01:17:29
Where do you download the data for Camp Mountaineer?
graceayscue
01:17:33
I think he just answered - it automatically imports advancement data from merit badges at Camp Mountaineer.
Maura Maupin
01:20:58
Can you share screen
graceayscue
01:21:11
I can see it
graceayscue
01:23:49
You can attach the Advancement Report to an email - you don’t need to print it for Margie.
Shari
01:25:44
Game changer!
Maura Maupin
01:29:28
I saw attendance report, how do you enter attendance for scouts for troop meetings, camping, etc?
Pindle Costello, Sr.
01:31:25
You can do attendance on the events page. Do you enter meetings and outings on the My Calendar in Scoutbook?
Maura Maupin
01:32:45
Our troop has just started with SB, I am incoming advancement chair so its all new to me but it was a question asked to me by our current AC
Marsha
01:35:57
If the parent's email address is wrong who can change it in Scoutbook?
Lauren Namsupak
01:36:27
Any admin should be able to change the email address.
Steve
01:36:51
How do you handle parents completing requirements that a scout may not have actually "mastered"?
Marsha
01:37:02
Thank you, Lauren.
Steve
01:40:47
Can the scouts run reports for themselves?
Stephen Woerner
01:41:16
I’m really concerned about parents who are ASMs in the troop marking their kids as complete. Have you had this issue in 65?
Maura Maupin
01:48:04
Who is Margie? Is it a national list?
Maura Maupin
01:48:37
But I am teaching virtual merit badges and I show up on scoutbok for some, but not for others
Maura Maupin
01:48:47
And I can’t ADD to connect to scouts
Pindle Costello, Sr.
01:48:53
I just use the list from MAC-BSA only to save headaches.
graceayscue
01:48:54
MB counselors are approved by the Council, not National - right? but they all have to do YPT
Steve
01:49:08
How can you find out if a councilor is approved with a different council?
Lori Ludas
01:49:12
Correct Grace
graceayscue
01:49:29
Call that council’s office
Scott Blake
01:52:42
Do you give your parents any guidelines before inviting their scouts or do you encourage them to do so from day 1? Are there age concerns for scouts younger than 13?
Scott Blake
01:53:26
COPPA
graceayscue
01:57:07
You don’t have to invite the MB counselor - you can use written blue cards and
Caroline Gee
01:57:12
if a counselor is signing in Scoutbook do they still have to sign the blue card?
graceayscue
01:57:17
enter the data yourself
Lori Ludas
01:58:06
No they do not. Scoutbook creates an electronic signature
Caroline Gee
02:05:32
thanks Hank.
Lauren Namsupak
