Giving Your Scout Access to ScoutBook

The short of it: No one can give a scout access to ScoutBook, except a parent who has already been registered in ScoutBook and linked to their son. The scout must also have an email address of their own.

How to do this: There are a few steps to follow, but it starts with the parent having an account in ScoutBook. All parents of Troop 69 have received an invite to join our ScoutBook site, if you can not find your invite, send Daniel an email to resend one.

Log into ScoutBook and select the “My Dashboard”. Under the “My Family” section, you should see a record for your son. Click on the record with your sons’ name, this will bring up his full record. Scrolling down you’ll see his ranks, merit badges and awards followed by additional menu items starting with “Profile”. Click on “Profile” and scroll to the very bottom.

At the bottom, there is a button labeled, “Invite {your sons’ name} to Connect”. Click on this and you’ll be asked for your sons’ email address. Fill this in and send. You can follow-up with him that he received the invite.

That’s it. This will allow him to sign-up for events, comment in discussions and mark off his own requirements (they still need to be approved by a leader).
