Advancing a Den to the Next Rank or Editing a Den in Scoutbook Plus

Changes made in Scoutbook Plus (Internet Advancement) will be reflected in Scoutbook

Members with the following roles can make these changes:  Key 3, Unit Admin, Functional Roles: CoR Delegate, Key 3 Delegate

At the end of the school year many Cub Scouts are graduating to a new grade level. Consequently, Cub Scout leaders may need to edit/advance dens* to the next program level and Scout leaders may need to edit patrols. This function can be completed in Internet Advancement and comes with the added function of being able to demote a den in case a mistake was made. (In Scoutbook, administrators are unable to demote dens once they have advanced to the next program level, which can be problematic.)

*Note: Webelos don’t advance since they are in an 18 month program with two ranks. Also, advancing dens really should be done for the whole pack at the end of the year. We recommend starting with the Bear den and working down program levels to avoid confusion.
