Scoutbook: Great Alternative to a Cub Scout Tracking Spreadsheet

scoutbook logoScoutbook sponsored this post, but the opinions are totally mine.  As always, I will never recommend a product or service that I wouldn’t use myself.

If you’re using a Cub Scout tracking spreadsheet for your pack’s advancement, you’ll want to take a look at this better option.  Scoutbook is an incredible online tool to track your son’s Scouting journey.

Earned awards are indicated on each boy’s record.

When my pack decided to replace our old online tracking system, the primary attribute we were looking for was ease of use for our den leaders and parents.  Scoutbook definitely delivers that!  Scoutbook is intuitive which allows us to figure out how to do a specific function quickly and effortlessly.

Scoutbook is a simply beautiful system.  I love how it shows images of the Cub Scout’s awards rather than just a list.  When the boys look at it, they can see their accomplishments.  Whether you’re accessing Scoutbook on your desktop or on your mobile device, you’ll find that they look and function identically.

Scoutbook is available for dens, packs and individuals.  In fact,  it offers FREE Cub Scout tracking online for one Scout.  Head on over to sign up your son.  It’s easy to check off the achievements and electives that he completes at home. I love how it shows completion percentages for ranks and belt loops.  Just imagine–you can throw away that Cub Scout belt loop tracking chart!

picture and percentage

Such a great looking interface. And a cute kid too! 🙂

Not only does Scoutbook track achievements and awards, it will also keep track of how many miles your Cub Scout has hiked, how many nights he has camped and how many service hours he has performed.  If you need a copy of the Individual Cub Scout Record Form 33827, Scoutbook will complete and generate it for your son.

 

If you’re a den or pack leader, you’re going to love Scoutbook!  It has so many awesome features that are simple to use.

Email Messaging

Emails can be sent to your entire pack, one den or just a few parents.   One of my pet peeves is getting an email that is being sent to a lot of people where I have to scroll down past all those names in the “to” field to get to the actual email text. To solve this, the email sender needs to put the recipients’ email addresses in the “bcc” field.  Scoutbook defaults to using “bcc” which I love!

email 2

Robust email/message system

With the click of a button, you can insert your pack or den’s upcoming events into the calendar.  What a great way to keep events top of mind for your parents!

At first glance, you may think that you can’t send an email just to a specific den.  That’s because you’ll see the list of everyone in the pack after you select the “send a message” option on your den page.  If none of the first few parents are in your den, it appears that the email will go to everyone.  Simply scroll down, and you’ll see the message recipients highlighted.

Meetings and Events

I absolutely LOVE the event functionality!  It makes tracking advancement so easy.  Here’s what you do:

  1. Add your event to the appropriate calendar–pack-wide or den-specific.
  2. Fill in the details of the event.
  3. Manage advancement by selecting the achievements, electives or awards you’re going to work on at that meeting.  You can even indicate which activities are supposed to be completed at home.
  4. After the meeting, go back into the event and mark which boys were in attendance.  Then BOOM!  Those advancement items are marked as completed for the boys.

You can use Scoutbook on your phone!

Mark the requirements you’ll complete at the meeting.

Indicate home projects. .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rather than writing out your meeting plans on a separate document, simply input them directly into Scoutbook.  There’s even a field for notes or agendas that can only be seen by the admins.  How easy is that?

Scoutbook allows you to set multiple reminders about an event.  So, I can have Scoutbook send a reminder 1 week in advance and again 1 day before an event.  You can even have it remind attendees just a few hours prior to the event.

Parents will find it so simple to RSVP to events.  Just click your image and select yes, no or maybe.  As the event organizer, there are a few improvements that could be made to the RSVP functionality.  Right now, there’s no way to indicate the number of people who will attend.  For example, families are invited to our pack picnic, but there was no place to indicate that little brother or sister would be attending as well.  This is on Scoutbook’s list of enhancements to make.

Although it’s great now, there are a few other minor tweaks that could be made to the event functionality. However, it is still in the beta test mode.  The Scoutbook folks continue to work on it, and I’m looking forward to seeing how it evolves.

Awards

If you serve as an awards chairperson, you have a tough job!  Recording which boys earned which awards and creating your shopping list isn’t easy.  But Scoutbook can help.

Even if you don’t use the planned advancement feature, Scoutbook has a quick entry feature that allows you to enter awards for multiple Scouts at once.quick entry1

After your awards are entered and approved, they move to a “needs purchasing” list.  You can check your pack’s stash of awards (we all have one!) to see if you have that belt loop already.  Mark the ones you still need to purchase, and they’ll be added to a “purchase order” which you can use as a shopping list by printing and taking it to your local Scout Shop.  Just remember to go back and mark those awards as having been “awarded” so that you don’t buy them again.

You know that BSA Advancement Report 34403 that you have to fill out?  Click a button, and a pdf version of it will be created for you!  No more filling it out by hand!

Reports

roster builder

Some of the options you can show on your customized roster.

In addition to the awards reports, Scoutbook has a very cool roster builder.  The beauty of that is that you select what goes on the roster.  Do you need a list BSA member numbers for your group?  Or what about a list of email addresses for the Bear den parents?  Create the perfect roster for your needs.

Want to see which boys have uncompleted belt loops?  Need to check the medical form dates for any expired forms?  Want to see what percentage of the Tiger requirements your boys have finished?  Use Scoutbook’s report builder!  It’s still being developed, but you’ll find it very helpful already.

You can also run a leader training report to see at a glance what training your leaders is lacking.  But before you run that report, sync your leaders’ training records with ScoutNET.  Yep, you can keep your leaders’ Scoutbook training profile up to date with a click of a button.

Support

I have been so impressed with the support available from the folks at Scoutbook!  If you need help importing your pack’s records from another system, they’ll guide you through the process or even do it for you.

Scoutbook has a very active member forum of Scouters helping Scouters.  I have posted questions there, and other members of the forum have answered very quickly.

cub scout references 1

Click on any of these options for information.

 

There are lots of resources within Scoutbook including links to BSA websites, lists of and links to councils and requirements for advancement & awards.  This is far more than you’ll get from a Cub Scout tracking spreadsheet!  🙂

Scoutbook is such a great system!  And they continue to add and refine features.  I’m very pleased with our pack’s decision to begin using Scoutbook.  I encourage you to click over and sign up your son!  And if your pack wants to check it out, take advantage of Scoutbook’s 30 day free trial.

Yours in Scouting,
Sherry

    I LOVE the intuitiveness of Scoutbook over other online tracking systems. Our Pack was recently introduced to the other system and bought it before I could present Scoutbook, which I think would be a better fit for us. Parents aren’t using the current system, but I think they WOULD use this one as it is visually more pleasing and fulfills the need for instant images of a Scout’s achievements. The dashboard is an awesome feature. I’m using it for my individual Scout, but I wish the rest of my Pack could also enjoy the experience.

      My experience (years of Cubmastering) is that if a parent won’t use one online tracking tool, they won’t use any online tracking tool, no matter how easy it is.

      Is this meant to be used by Scouts or by Akelas to track progress? I wouldn’t want to let a Scout near this thing; before you know it, they’d have “earned” every award offered by the BSA.

        HA!! You’re right! For Cub Scouts, it’s intended to be for the parents. But I believe that as boys move into Boy Scouts, it’s intended for parents and Scouts.

    My favorite feature is that parents and den leaders will always be on the same page. No more e-mails about what their son is missing because they don’t bring their books to den meetings. Such a great time saver and more effective way to get parents involved in their son’s progress.

    I am really interested in ScoutBook…I love how easy it is to track individual progress on a really granular level, to visually see what they have and what they need. I love that it gives parents direct access to this as well. We are seriously considering switching over..a free year would certainly help 🙂

    Our pack got a subscription to Scoutbook last year, and we absolutely love it! I highly recommend to any scout unit. It is so much more than just a scout tracking system, and the ease of use is amazing. We have gotten great feedback from our leaders as well as parents. There are so many wonderful features that it is hard to choose just one. 🙂

    My husband is the new Cubmaster of our pack and I serve as the Wolf Den leader (and Tiger Den until we can find a leader) and this would certainly simplify all of our paperwork! I love the ease with which parents can input their son’s home achievements and how the boys can visually see how close they are to completing various awards. It also seems like Scoutbook is staying on top of the changes that come with the programs, so hopefully there will be a seamless transition to the new program next year.

    I love that the mobile app is just like the actual site. I am impressed with the tracking abilities, but I was really excited when I saw that they are coming up with something to track and show JTE. It is that time of year for us and that is definitely on my mind. The ability to print a “purchase order” for ordering awards looks nice, too.

    Love using Scoutbook. The transition from Cibtrails had been a little hectic but as a CubMaster it presents the Pack with an easier “venue” to track the progression of our scouts, communicate internally and allow parents the opportunity to view the effort that the Pack leaders out into the boys.

    Our Pack has used ScoutBook for over a year now, with absolutely NO COMPLAINTS!! The system is user friendly.

    Love all the photos & the interface with mobile devices. We use CubTrails now, but we are not happy & our parent usage is very low. I think this is mainly due to the fact that most folks are primarily on their mobile devices & not computers. Scoutbook is also very reasonably priced.

    I am really excited about trying this program out. I have been using the CubTrax spreadsheets for the previous two years, which have been really helpful. Unfortunately, the only way parents can see progress is for me to print the sheets to PDF and email out. This then triggers email exchanges about other achievements accomplished at home, updating more emailing.

    Having parents be able to see in real time would be awesome. Having the parents be able to suggest achievements /electives completed without automatic improvement is also great.

    I was really impressed with the camping and service hours log, and went back and populated my son’s back to Tiger.

    Thanks for a great piece of software,

    I have been using Scout book for over a year for my son. I love the visual display of all awards and the responsiveness of the developers. I also love it’s ease of use and constant adding of features.

    My only complaint is that there’s no offline component for times when your in the backcountry and there’s no signal. Other than that best tracking site ever.

    It was built by scouts and scouters and a portion of your fee is donated back to your local council. No I’m just a user, who loves it. I have recommended it to numerous units but due to the cost my son’s pack refused to switch.

    He’s about to crossover, and I’m the Cubmaster of another unit that could really benefit from this subscription.

We have been able to help our cubs receive awards that no one had heard of before! All because Scoutbook takes the guess work out of it and simplifies everything! Our scouts are super excited about the Belt Loops, Awards and Recognition that they are receiving and Den Leaders are excited about the ease of planning, tracking and the knowledge it unlocks! However, there is one problem…. We will need to increase our budget for awards next year, (If you call that a problem!) I LOVE SCOUTBOOK and it has helped me to LOVE scouting!!!!

    There are so many wonderful things to do on this site and I can see where it would be a blessing to have this to keep up with everything. Especially, since my pack has 3 adults that work directly with the boys and 15 boys. However, as affordable as it is, it just isn’t in our budget as a relatively new pack. We prefer to spend the money we have on activities and events for the boys. The best part of the site I can see for us would be the ability to save time by accessing all the boys at once to see what they have left they need to work on and uploading den achievements all at once instead of one at a time.

    Our pack is currently using another type of software that I don’t think is very user friendly. This looks so much better! I love the ability to see the actual awards instead of a list. I also love the option of making reports. As the assistant awards leader, I would really appreciate that. Scoutbook is also less expensive than our current software.

    Communication! The ties that bind a Pack and Troop together. This program ties scouts, parents and leaders together. Sharing information….The same Information and if the leadership changes and we know it does in LDS units this programs provides a cohesiveness. The information is recorded and easily passed on. I was orienting myself to program with trial addition and several of our units were reorganized and so many scout lost records. I am signing up!

    I love that I can mark off all achievements for the whole den on one page, then it updates everyone at once! I have been using scoutbook for a year and I love how easy it is, and that you can use it on a mobile device!

    The reporting output to PDF is my favorite feature. Going through re chartering right now, would have been nice to have this program over the past year to help with all the paperwork…

    Our pack currently uses Scouttrack , which I thought was good. Looking at Scoutbook, I find it is a lot better. It includes a lot more material to keep up with. It has graphics which should encourage the younger guys to pay attention to achievements and ranks. I like how you have council information. All the connections and messages you can do are great. I think parents would be much more likely to use this than one that is pretty much words that you check off (kind of boring). I’m now checking on when our subscription to Scouttrack is up…

    I love the flexibility and ease of scoutbook. You can use it on the go so when you need to add achievements or badges its easy to do with the busyness of life. I would love to have this for our pack.

    This looks amazing. Quick entry for multiple scouts, messaging and sharing events specifically excite me. Can’t wait to see more improvements in Scoutbook!

    This looks awesome. I’m sending it to our Pack Leader right now. Really love the way it displays the awards and ranks the boys have earned. And the email, calendar and reminders will certainly help our communication.

    I like the fact that it looks the same whether on a desktop or mobile. I also like the shopping list!
