Release 11.1 - Key Features

Transferrable Scouters

You can now drill down to a Scouter record and Move/Link Up or Migrated to another Troop, just like you can with youth records.

One big difference is that that no login permissions are transferred, because someone who is a non-administrator in your Troop may not be entitled to the same powers in the new Troop. Consequently, any login found that has no permissions is explicitly flagged as “Pending”, with instructions on how to enable their login (basically, grant them at least one login permission). The migration notification email has also been modified to tell the receiving scouters that they need to complete this task before the migratee can actually sign into their new account.

Tax Receipts

After answering the question “where do I find the tax receipts” a few too many times, I've finally just renamed the “Troop Reports” | “Program Costs” report to be “Tax Receipts”.

Additionally, you can now multi-select which youth you'd like to generate receipts for, rather than having to generate the all and selectively print off individual pages.


You can now embed images in Emails, Login Signatures, Troop News, Event Notes and Badge Requirement Notes. The maxmimum size of images is as follows

  • Emails: 4MB each, with a limit of 8MB for the entire email
  • Troop News: 500 KB… the intent is to allow you to include a single appropriately-sized photo or graphic
  • Login Signature: 20 KB… the intent is to allow you to include your Group crest or the “thanks” button
  • Event Notes and Badge Requirement Notes: 10 KB… the intent is to just allow you to include badge or event crest.

The limitation on the image sizes is to prevent you from running into the browser-imposed memory limit (as low as 5MB) which has to be shared across all storage used by ScoutsTracker (i.e., badge definitions, youths' progress, schedule).

Additionally, the attachment size has

  • Enabled spellchecker for the editor
  • Changed paragraph spacing to be zero, to align with GMail and Facebook
  • Increased general attachments size to 4MB
