Scouts | Terrain Development Release – November 2021

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.

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.

The second block of development work from our first concentrated stint was released on Monday 15th November 2021. This has focused on adding notifications into the system, along with the ability to download Group achievement data. There were also some improvements following the Programming release last month.

Scouts | Terrain Development Release – October 2021

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.

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.

The first block of development work from our first concentrated stint was released on Thursday 28th October 2021. This has focused on improvements and additions to the Programming area of the system, along with some updates related to Milestones, although will have benefits beyond programming.

Scouts | Terrain Update – October 2021

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.

At the end of October 2021, we should see the release of the first block of development work from our first concentrated stint. This has been focused on improvements and additions to the Programming area of the system, although will have benefits beyond programming.

Scouts | Terrain Update – Sep 2021

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.

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.
