New Look Coming for MyScouting Tools
Some exciting changes are being made to MyScouting Tools! Soon, the site will have a new look and feel. Plus, it will run faster and be more mobile-friendly and dynamic to fit on any mobile device. New graphics and videos also will be part of this new look, which will launch in November. Here’s a sneak peek:
As part of the new look, each tool icon will be shown in a drop-down list to select after logging in rather than a row of large icons on the tool page. Remember, non-Key 3 members will have the My Dashboard tool, while unit and district Key 3 members will have access to more tools.
The news section also will be revamped, providing more space under the “Current News” section to place announcements regarding enhancements made to MyScouting Tools, in addition to posting pertinent, relevant information for our volunteers.
Since August of this year, there have been more than 1 million visits to MyScouting Tools. That’s great news! We are providing the tools to empower volunteers in fostering stronger units.
Look for the following new functionality later this fall and winter:
- Assign functional roles—includes Key 3 delegate assignment (Plus 3)
- Advancement—with dashboards and reporting similar to Training Manager
- Targeted communication—send messages to specific groups of people (i.e., Cubmasters, Scoutmasters, committee chairs, etc.)
- Feedback mechanism—we want to hear from you about MyScouting Tools
