Scouts | Terrain FAQs relocated, expanded, and now searchable!

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.

Scouts | Terrain Webinar Videos

Video recordings of the webinars developed for our early adopters are now available in the dedicated new Scouts | Terrain page.

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.

The system has been under development since the end of 2019 and development has comprised of a series of “sprints” to create each of the different areas of functionality. You can read about each Sprint and the work that has been achieved surrounding each Sprint in the Sprint Updates. There are currently 8 Sprints reported on, with 10 planned in total.
