Cinematography is now Moviemaking
The BSA has changed the name of the Cinematography merit badge to Moviemaking. This change is effective immediately. For detailed information, please read the article from the Scouting Magazine.
eTrailToEagle.com has been updated and now reflects this change.
We just updated our partial merit badge reports to include the notes. Now you can easily see the progress of each scout on their partial merit badges and what they need to do to complete them.
Check out these reports and other in the Scouting Report Center.
We published a small update to our Android app that resolves the tablet issues many users were experiencing. You should now be able to download our app on all Android tablets including the Google Nexus 7.
Details on our app can be found here in the Google Play Store.
Our next update will add the Activity tracking that you all have been asking for.
Many of you experienced issues connecting to our site today. This was due to the major outage that GoDaddy.com experienced. Their DNS servers had major problems which affected millions of websites. It appears that the issue has been resolved and we are back up and running.
Thanks for your patience!
We have updated our ScoutNET feature today. Now you can specify Troop, Team and Crew numbers. This is important for LDS Troops that have separate numbers for Troop, Team and Crew. Please note that the number needs to be 4 digits. If your Troop number is 849 then you need to enter 0849.
Also, once you download the ScoutNET file from our site, don’t open and edit it in Excel. If you have to edit the file (NOT RECOMMENDED), only use Notepad or some other text editor. If you use Excel and then save the file, it will render the file invalid when you try to upload to ScoutNET.
Please visit our ScoutNET Instructions page for detailed steps on submitting your advancement data to the BSA’s Internet Advancement System (ScoutNET).
If you run into any issues, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with details and we will help you out!
We have just released the first update to our iPhone application. Make sure you visit the App Store to get the update. We appreciate the feedback that we have received to help improve the app.
In this release we have fixed the following issues:
- Fixed a bug when trying to add or update a partial merit badge
- Fixed scroll bar guide on Troop Roster page. If you had a long patrol name, the scroll bar would get in the way.
- Fixed the calendar bug when adding a new scout and selecting their birthday
- Fixed a bug with read-only leader being able to add a scout
- Renamed the Delete button to “Edit” on the Merit Badge page
We have also added the following features:
- Added Partial Merit badge filter button to merit badge pages. Allows you to easily see all partials for a given badge
- Added ability to click on an e-mail address in the address book and launch e-mail application
- Added ability to click on phone numbers in the address book and launch the dialer
We are working on 1.0.3 right now which will include Activity tracking. We hope to have that ready soon.
If you haven’t purchased our iPhone app yet, please visit the App Store today.
We are working hard to bring continuous updates to our mobile apps. Today we released version 1.2.7 for our Android App. The new update brings two new features:
First, is a Partial merit badge filter for the Merit Badges page. This allows you to see partial merit badges on one page.
Second, we enabled the app to run on tablets. If you are using an Android tablet, please give it a try and let us know if you run into any issues!
This update should be hitting the Google Play Store any time now.
