Internet Recharter 2.0 Sandbox

Update: Sept 28, the sandbox is only for Key 3s in their units.

On Wednesday, September 22, a sandbox environment will be open for units and commissioners to begin exploring and training on the new Internet Recharter system. The link is https://advancementspp.scouting.org and it will allow units to "test" the recharter process before actually committing the actions permanently in the new recharter system when it opens on October 15.


Units can access the sandbox using the same login ID as they use for Scoutbook or my.scouting. The password will be a generic password and will be circulated to councils and volunteers by Wednesday.


Please note that the sandbox is a "Work In Process," which means that many functions are still being finalized and that users may experience some issues. This is normal with pre-released software and there is no need for concern. Frequent updates will be made to enable a fully working system in time for the start of charter renewal on October 15.
