This tool extends several feature capabilities of Scoutbook.
Disclaimer: This tool was created by a Scouting Volunteer who spent his own time and energy to “Do a good turn” and help fellow Scouters out. It is not a product of the Scoutbook development team nor is supported by BSA. If it helps you out, terrific. If you find issues or have questions or would like to see it tweaked, please contact me so I can get them fixed.
