TroopMaster Web setup guide for Troop 533 Parents
TroopMaster Web setup for Troop 533 Parents
For nearly ten years, Troop 533 has used a software program called TroopMaster to maintain advancement records and contact information. It has been an excellent tool, but it requires that the information be maintained mainly by one person. With both Mr. Boyd and Mr. Goodwin updating the data, they discovered that the TroopMaster database on their computers could not easily or automaticly be kept syncronized, resulting in much duplication of effort. With the new TroopMaster Web product that has been introduced, we can now make our troop data available securely online for all leaders to access and update.
In addition to the leadership, as a parent you can get access to your son’s advancement records (including rank and merit badge progress), activity attendance, and the troop activity calendar. You’ll also be able to update personal information such as address, phone numbers, email address, doctor information, medications, and more. This will provide the troop with more complete and accurate contact information and for completion of Council reports and registration.
In order for you to be able to access TroopMaster Web, you must first set up your personal UserID and Password. The setup is easy; just follow the steps outlined in the following pages. Your information is maintained on a server secured by TroopMaster, and access to your son’s information is limited to only you and the troop leaders based your personal login information.
