 You can now define a "​year-in-program"​ value for each youth. For Beavers, this aligns with the long-established Brown/​Blue/​White tail model. For Cubs, this aligns with the new Runner/​Tracker/​Howler model. For other sections, this is just implemented as "1st year", "2nd year", etc. You can now define a "​year-in-program"​ value for each youth.

 All lists of youth (and there'​s a lot of them in ScoutsTracker,​ because it really is all about the youth!) now give you the ability group the youth either by year-in-program or by Patrol (a.k.a. Lair/​Lodge/​Team). This then helps you more easily plan your program (e.g., via "Troop Reports"​ | "​Completion"​) as you can now see all the youth at the same approximate age/​progress in the same group. Similarly, if you need to send an email to just your senior Scouts, this is now trivial to do. All lists of youth (and there'​s a lot of them in ScoutsTracker,​ because it really is all about the youth!) now give you the ability group the youth either by year-in-program or by Patrol (a.k.a.

 Despite sounding like a trivial change, this had a pretty big impact on the guts of the user interface, so if you notice anything that isn't behaving as expected, please let me know at support@scoutstracker.ca Despite sounding like a trivial change, this had a pretty big impact on the guts of the user interface, so if you notice anything that isn't behaving as expected, please let me know at support@scoutstracker.ca

 Added the new Pack progression nomenclature (i.e., Runner/​Tracker/​Howler),​ and deprecated the now-obsolete Pack roles of Sixer and Second. Any existing sixers/​seconds had their "Other roles" field updated to show "​6er"/"​2nd"​ so you'll see NO difference when looking at your list of Cubs. Similarly, if you want to keep using the sixer designation even though it's no longer officially part of the SC Pack Program, you're able to use the Cubs' "Other roles" field to record this. Added the new Pack progression nomenclature (i.e., Runner/​Tracker/​Howler),​ and deprecated the now-obsolete Pack roles of Sixer and Second.
