Q. Where is the Advancement Report in Internet Advancement to give to the Scout Shops?
A. The advancement report is under Reports in Internet Advancement and looks a little different, see the example below. This report has been approved by BSA Advancement for you to give to your Scout Shop to show you have reported advancements to your council so you are able to purchase advancements.
NOTE for Scoutbook Users: Both Internet Advancement and Scoutbook produce Advancement Reports that are accepted by Scout shops.
- In Scoutbook, users create a PO and generate an advancement report by creating a PO.
- When an Advancement Report is generated in Internet Advancement, the report will automatically include all advancement items from any open PO in Scoutbook, allowing users to remove items if they want to. Once the Advancement Report has been run in Internet Advancement, the PO will automatically be closed. Internet Advancement has a Purchase History tab where previously created advancement reports may be accessed.

Board of Review Signatures. Because entering rank advancement into Internet Advancement, either directly or via Scoutbook, and printing the system-generated Unit Advancement Reports typically occur sometime after boards of review are held, obtaining signatures on the report may not be practical. Therefore, after a board of review is held, it is permissible for board members to sign a completed copy of the Unit Advancement Report found at www.scouting.org/forms. This signed report may then be attached to the electronically generated report and submitted to the local council. Guide to Advancement 18.104.22.168
