User Management

In this section we’ll refer to a User to describe an adult or a scout that has been added to your unit in Scout Manager. Each User gets their own user account with detailed information about them, their activities, awards, training, etc. Each person is also able to login to view and manage this information if they desire.

Topics covered are:

Logging in

Each user in your unit has the ability to login into Scout Manager. They can select their own username and set their own password which is used each time they want to access the system. On the login page there is a “remember me” checkbox which enables an automatic login for up to 2 weeks.

Logging in for the first time

When you import or add a user each person is automatically assigned a username. Typically, the system will use their email address, but if one is not provided one will be auto-generated. Users with an associated email-address can then be sent an invitation email containing their username and a special one-time-use link allowing them to securely choose a new password.

Using a third-party account

You can use a third-party login to access your Scout Manager account. We currently support:

  • Google
  • Facebook

You’ll need to ensure that the username from one of these third-parties is the same as your Scout Manager username. Then click the signin button you want to use on the login page. Afterwards, you’ll continue to automatically be logged in with your third-party account going forward. To stop the auto-login select Logout on the menu.

If you haven’t previously configured your Scout Manager account, you can still use a third-party account and associate your Scout Manager account if the email address in your profile matches the one from the third-party. Just attempt a login and Scout Manager will guide you through the process.
