 +[[Release_Notes|<<​ List of all previous releases]]
 +====== Release 12.1 - Key Features ======
 +===== Inventory Changes =====
 +You can now share your inventory with other accounts. ​  This works within a section level (e.g., Pack/Pack, Colony/​Colony) AND/OR within a Group.
 +Within a section level, your Monday Pack and Tuesday Pack can have identical views of their inventory (OAS'​s,​ PAB's, Seeonee award, Howler woggles, etc), and modifications made by one account will affect the inventory seen by the other, and vice versa. ​ Similarly, the Group-wide inventory sharing lets you define Group inventory (tents, stoves, neckers, etc.) that will be seen and updated by all accounts within your Group. ​ Section-level sharing works in conjunction (optionally) with the Group-wide sharing, so Colony A and Colony B can both share their program/​uniform inventory AND see the Group'​s inventory.
 +Also, OAS badges can now be managed (and shared) at a Group level. ​  Since all section levels are capable of awarding Vertical Skills #2, it made sense that the OAS badges become a shared resource within a Group, rather than maintained separately by each section.
 +Custom inventory items now have three new fields that you can optionally set to any value you want.
 +  * a "​Location"​ field (e.g., "​Trailer"​ or "​Don'​s Basement"​) that you can use to help remind people where stuff is currently stored.
 +  * a "​Category"​ field (e.g., "​Gear",​ "​Program Materials",​ "Kub Kar Supplies"​) that simply groups the items in the Inventory and Shopping reports.
 +  * a "​Notes"​ field that you can use for anything you want (e.g., lighting instructions for a stove, reports of damage to specific tents).
 +The new inventory options can be found via "​Account"​ | "​Inventory"​ | "​Options"​.
 +Finally, support has been removed for NEW vs OLD uniforms. ​ It's been more than 5 years since the new uniforms were introduced, and the Canadian Path doesn'​t support new/old uniform variants, so it's reasonable to stop supporting differentiated inventories of the new and old pre-CP badges.
 +===== "​Import from MyScouts"​ Changes =====
 +The biggest change is that you can now do Group-wide imports. ​  E.g, each Fall, the Group registrar can update all sections'​ youth/​scouter records. ​  This also allows a GC to license ScoutsTracker for their Group (see below), do an initial import, and thus get their entire Group off to a running start.
 +The UI was also completely revamped, so that you can get a preview of which youth/​scouters will be added (or modified) as a result of the import.
 +Finally, ScoutsTracker detects names in ALL-CAPS during MyScouts import, and converts them to Mixed Case.
 +===== Commissioner-based Licensing and "​Master"​ Login =====
 +The Commissioner Edition now allows you to license your entire Group/​Area/​Council,​ and self-manage who's in your license. ​ I.e., if two of your Pack scouters created a ScoutsTracker account, and both redeemed your license Key, you can now unlicense one of the redundant accounts directly from the Usage Report.
 +Accounts that redeem your Group/​Area/​Council license are automatically linked to the licensing account. ​ So you no longer need to send a license key to a section, and then separately invite it to join your Group/​Area/​Council account.
 +Accounts that redeem your Group/​Area/​Council license will have a non-deletable "​master"​ login automatically created that will allow a specific key person (of your choosing) at the Group Level to connect to any account in your Group. ​ This is crucial when you a large turn-over in your Colony leadership suddenly leaves you with no account administrators.
 +From the Usage Report, you can directly license any account that is collaborating with your Group/​Area/​Council report, and even if they haven'​t accepted your invite, you can still easily send them a customizable "​here'​s your license key" email directly from the Report.
 +One downside of this release is that the Commissioner Edition is no longer free.  Unfortunately the amount of R&D and support the Commissioner Edition requires is not sustainable if it's free.  Additionally,​ there were a number of common support issues that had to be repeatedly handled that were greatly simplified if the Commissioner edition was a paid account like the Section accounts (same price, same discounting).
 +Consequently,​ all existing Commissioner accounts have all been turned into a trial that will last until July 1st, 2017.  After that time, any expired accounts will be "​frozen"​ until they are subsequently licensed (i.e., the same as happens with a Section account that expires).
 +===== Miscellaneous Enhancements =====
 +  * "​Collaboration"​ | "​Organizations"​ now shows a) the scope of the organization (i.e., Group or Area) and b) whether it's an official account
 +  * ADMIN: added inventory to section backup/​restore
 +===== Bug Fixes =====
 +  * PROGRAM_MAP field was showing up in editions that don't have program maps, for events that imported from sections that DO have program maps
 +  * Sending yourself a "​Welcome Message"​ was respecting the "​invitations"​ opt-out, which meant you wouldn'​t get the message that specifically asked to receive
 +  * COMMISSIONERS:​ if a section that you were already collaborating with subsequently accepted your invitation to join, it wasn't being included in one of the sections you could push an event to.
