My.Scouting Tools is a dynamic tool for Scouting leadership and eventually Scouts to obtain and maintain their current information.
Creating a My.Scouting account is simple, a Scouter goes to My.Scouting.org and selects "Create Account." If you have been involved with Scouting in any aspect in the past, which includes filling out an application with your name on it (even as an adult partner), the system will find you if you answer “yes” to being associated with Boy Scouts of America. This helps keep all your information under one BSA number. If you don’t know your BSA number, answer “no” and the system will find it for you. Fill in the personal information, select "Next," and create your password. You will need to log in sometime in the future, so be sure to remember your username and password.
My.Scouting Tools has two main levels of access: My Dashboard and Roster Manager. Once you have created an account and are logged into My.Scouting.org, click the “Menu” located on the top left of the landing page to get a drop down list “toolkit,” which is equivalent to BSA organization structure. For example, if you’re part of a unit, your unit will appear as a toolkit.
My Dashboard is where members can take training and manage their IDs. Under My Profile, leaders and volunteers now have the ability to update their contact information. This is a huge enhancement because updates to phone numbers, email addresses, and other contact information are immediate.

Roster Manager is the second level of access which helps the unit and district Key 3. These tools let them view and export their roster information and make contact updates for anyone on their roster. The Key 3 can maintain training for the unit. If the unit chooses to use the calendar, reminders and announcements are easily created and will appear on the dashboards of other leaders with the click of a button. Calendar events become more than just a date and time on the calendar. By formatting the event, a leader can add additional information, even if it’s just a reminder to bring a sleeping bag!
