For information on registration or how to access Scout, see the Registration and Support page.

Scout Apps are essentially folders that contain related reports and information.

Scout Reports are organised within Apps.

Apps can also contain other features, including summary information, useful links and videos. Selecting an app tile will launch the app.

View all apps

When you log into Scout, 'Recommended' apps will appear at the top of the home screen, followed by 'Recently used' apps.

To see all Apps available to you, select the Apps button on the left-hand side of the screen.

Alternatively, you can search for the app in the search bar at the top centre of the window.

Scout welcome pages

When you launch an app, the default page will be the app’s Welcome page.

Welcome pages contain useful information and are divided into four main sections:

  1. Links to resources and support options
  2. A brief explanation of the information provided in the app
  3. A summary of the report categories in the navigation pane
  4. An animation overview of the app (on some homepages)

Scout navigation pane

Use the navigation pane on the left of the screen to view all reports within the selected app.

Note that some reports have a down arrow icon in the title, indicating more views or reports within that heading.

Select the down arrow to reveal or hide the options.

Report explanations

Each Scout report will have a link to its own 'Report explanation' in the top navigation bar.

Report explanations provide context about the benefits to users, source of data, instructions on using the report and points to consider when analysing the data.
