Item media 1 screenshot

Overview

Extends Scoutbook functionality with quick entry, user management, and summer camp import functions

This tool extends several feature capabilities of Scoutbook. Disclaimer: This tool was created by a Scouting Volunteer who spent his own time and energy to "Do a good turn" and help fellow Scouters out. It is not a product of the Scoutbook development team nor is supported by BSA. If it helps you out, terrific. If you find issues or have questions or would like to see it tweaked, please contact me so I can get them fixed. What is it? The focus of this extension is to provide time saving features to users of the Scoutbook Tool. It is hoped that the life of this tool will be short and that Scoutbook is able to integrate these feature concepts. This tool is simply an interim workaround to some needed features. Until then, there is a great need to have the following included features. Calendar * Repeating Events. You can create, edit and delete repeating calendar events (no longer available when calendar is migrated out of Scoutbook) * Copy Event. You can copy existing events to a new date. (no longer available when calendar is migrated out of Scoutbook) * Calendar Import from CSV file You can import calendar events using a CSV file (no longer available when calendar is migrated out of Scoutbook) * Calendar Export to CSV (no longer available when calendar is migrated out of Scoutbook) * Calendar Messaging You can select invitees based on their RSVP status to send them messages. You can select attendees based on Attendance status to send them messages. * Update Multiple Calendar Event Invitees. You can add invitees to any number of future events in a quick entry fashion. * Scout Birthday - easily adds Scout Birthday events to the calendar (no longer available when calendar is migrated out of Scoutbook) Payment Logs * Paylog Report - You can mail balances * import transaction * Close accounts * Delete all account transactions Session Monitor * Session Timeout Notification. When the Scoutbook session is about to logged off due to inactivity, a popup appears and you can click to extend the session. Merit Badge Quick Entry for Units * Add Merit Badge Quick Entry. You can use Quick Entry to Add merit badges, sign as the Unit Leader, (and Assign Merit Badge Counselors - this feature temporarily removed due to Scoutbook changes) Merit Badge Counselor Connection Helper * Allows Merit Badge Counselors to identify connections that are no longer needed, so they may be removed to clean up the dashboard. Merit Badge Counselor Quick Connect * Easily connect to a Merit Badge Counselor right from the Merit Badge Search Results, and from a Scout's Merit Badge page Merit badge Counselor -Class Support for connecting/disconnecting from multiple scouts at once, printing class log worksheets, and table style worksheet quick entry Merit Badge Import from Summer Camps * Summer Camp Merit Badge Import from Black Pug Software. You can import data saved after 6/1/2017 from Summer Camps that use the scoutingevent.com website to track Merit badges. Connection Manager Enhancement * Set Scout column permissions.

Me too. Unfortunately I'm not an Apple developer. I had a few guys volunteer to try to port the extension to Apple but no one has succeeded yet.
