As part of the ongoing commitment to Scouts | Terrain, there are two streams of work that continue to update and improve the system – monthly support and maintenance plus an annual development sprint, as detailed in previous updates.
This month, there are a few items that have been bundled together from work that has occurred in the last month from the support and maintenance stream. Some of this is addressing bugs, and other aspects are maintenance to continuously improve the system.
Check out the full update here.
As part of the ongoing commitment to Scouts | Terrain, there are two streams of work that will happen from time to time, resulting in releases of differing natures.
The first of these is an ongoing time allocation, per month, that enables background work to occur in the form of support and maintenance. Each month, this might look slightly different, and some items will be fixes to specific user issues, whilst other items might be more wide-ranging. It is more efficient for any of these fixes to be grouped for testing and release, so whilst work is steadily occurring, we won’t always see evidence of this on a routine basis.
The second stream of work is a concentrated stint of development work, with the potential to occur once each year. This will see significant enhancements to, or adjustment of, a feature (or multiple features) as a result of user feedback.
This month, there are quite a few items that have been bundled together from work that has occurred in the last two months from the support and maintenance stream. Some of this is addressing bugs, and other aspects are maintenance to update program additions or changes.
Check out the latest update here and here.
Check this knowledge base of Scouts | Terrain Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) if you want to know more, or are having some troubles with Scouts | Terrain.
We have moved the FAQs into a new location that complements other Scouts | Terrain resources, as well as all the other youth program documents, videos, and resources.
You can go directly to the FAQs at pr.scouts.com.au/terrain/faq/
Or, find the FAQs button on the Scouts | Terrain page on the Program Resources website (pr.scouts.com.au).
You can even find it in the program resources website menu, under the Scouts | Terrain menu item (where there is also a direct link to Scouts | Terrain login).
An exciting new feature is the ability to search the FAQs for the particular topic or question you want to know more about.
The button that links you to the FAQs currently found on Scouts | Terrain itself, will be updated on Monday 21st September, 2020.
New questions have been added, and old questions revised. This will continue as Scouts | Terrain grows and matures.

It is important to note that from feedback and what continues to be developed, Scouts | Terrain has already evolved and will continue to evolve from what can be seen in the videos. This means that the final product will be even better than what you see here!
Another change is the name. You might see “Traverse” on some screens. This was a possible name but it couldn’t be used in the end.
