Scoutbook Introduces Administrative Tools for Councils

by Angel Martinez for the Alamo Area BSA: June 26, 2016

Good day Scouting community!

We are excited to hear and now see how many of our families are using www.Scoutbook.comExternal Link!  Over 2500 of our Scouting community members are using Scoutbook - Boy Scouts of America's advancement tracking mobile web app in the cloud. Councils across the country, including the Boy Scouts of America, Alamo Area Council, have recently been given some limited administrative access to Scoutbook!  

Besides our other communication platforms like the Adventure Guide, Council social media sites, and the Council website www.AlamoAreaBSA.org with monthly newsletter emailings, the Alamo Area Council will begin utilizing the BRAND NEW Scoutbook Council Messaging Feature.  This allows us to reach members of Units, including Leaders, Adults, and even Scouts securely (with Youth Protection Training (YPT) features built in)!  

Coming soon: Merit Badge Counselor List uploads and Council/District Calendar Linking! 

We feel this will provide an additional safe, reliable and secure method to better communicate to our Scouting units and families!  Stay tuned and continue enjoying the Scouting Adventure!

Sincerely,

Angel Martinez, Director of Scouting Relations and Communications
