 +====== Release 7.2 - Key Features ======
 +This release contains support for annual reports, revamped offline syncing logic, additional calendar sharing options, and various other enhancements and bug fixes.
 +===== Annual Report =====
 +
 +As another scouting year winds up, it is useful (sometimes required!) to prepare a report to your Group Committee. So there is now an "​Annual Report"​ that summarizes your section, provides an overview of your events (accomplished,​ and still outstanding),​ lists the quantities of badges earned, and lists your favourite featured events.
 +
 +When you edit an event, you'll now find a new checkbox that will control whether it is included in the annual report. These featured events show up in the calendar and in event lists with a yellow star (i.e., like is used to denote "​favourites"​).
 +
 +Additionally,​ you can now add "​Post-Event"​ notes. This is just a place that you can jot down how the event turned out, for the edification of your parents and/or GC, and for future reference if you plan to run a similar event next year.
 +
 +Note, this is the first rendition of an annual report, so if you have suggestions as to how it can be improved, please contact support.
 +
 +===== Better Off-Line Syncing =====
 +
 +Switching to off-line mode is a great way to improve performance when you're in a location with spotty internet access, and now ScoutsTracker remembers your last connection mode when it starts up, and prompts you if you want to stay off-line. This can then avoid the delay as ScoutsTracker tries to contact the server during start-up.
 +
 +Additionally,​ whenever you are off-line, a "​Sync"​ button is shown that can be used to temporarily try to go on-line, attempt a sync, and then go back-offline.
 +
 +Finally, you can see an exhaustive list of all the queued updates that need to be synced. This report is accessible from the "​Account"​ page.
 +
 +===== Calendar Sharing =====
 +
 +There is now a link that you can embed in an email or chat message that will point to your section'​s calendar. This link is accessible by clicking on the "​Share"​ button below your calendar. You can customize the appearance of the resulting calendar by twiddling with some checkboxes.
 +
 +===== Miscellaneous Enhancements =====
 +
 +  * New Account "​wizard"​ to prevent parents creating duplicate Troop/Pack accounts
 +  * Add the youths'/​leaders'​ names as tooltips in the wall chart and attendance reports (to accommodate scrolling)
 +
 +===== Bug Fixes =====
 +
 +  * Finalization update wasn't working if you had related reqs that you had customized AFTER adding as a related req
 +  * Calculated reqs completion scores were being normalized, which was undervaluing their contribution to the badge completion score
 +  * Past cancelled events were unnecessarily showing "no participants"​
 +  * The "​home"​ section in embedded calendars was not using your customized colour when other sections were included.
 +  * PACK: tweaked wording/​layout of Firstaider #2a and #2j
 +  * PACK: updated wording/​layout of Red Star #A1
