Scoutbook Lite To Launch, 2018

National BSA recently announced a new application called Scoutbook Lite will replace Internet Advancement in the second quarter of this year.

Scoutbook Lite is a free, full-featured, online tool allowing leaders, parents and Scouts to manage a wide variety of Scouting related information.

This new application is being developed now from the ground up so unit leaders can quickly key in advancement and other key data.  It will sport a slick new user interface optimized for whatever device you use: desktop, tablet, and mobile devices.

The BSA has found that less than 10% of units use the CSV data file import feature in Internet Advancement. In the interest of focusing on tools that serve more Scouters, the CSV data file import will not be supported once the current Internet Advancement platform is discontinued.

Other than the CSV import feature, Scoutbook Lite will offer optimized functions for everything found on the current Internet Advancement platform.

The Scoutbook database will become the official record of advancement for the Boy Scouts of America.

We will continue to work on and improve Scoutbook as our full feature application.
