All TroopWebHost units may now attach as many documents - agenda, minutes, whatever - as they'd like to any event.
Scouts BSA units can do this from the Maintain Events page; Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts will use Add & Update Events. All versions of TroopWebHost now display a "Documents" tab when you update a given event.
Click Add Document to add a document for an event. Include "Agenda" or "Minutes" in the document title to restrict access, if your troop chooses to limit access to those types of documents.
You can upload a file or reference an existing document on the web. Either way, please be sure to enter a Document Title.
This month we streamlined the Maintain Events page, similar to what we did with Add & Update Events last month. The tabs now appear near the top of the page. Most of the fields that used to appear at the top of each page have been moved to the Details tab, where you can also enter Planned Activities.
We added two new selection criteria to Dynamic Subgroups.
The first is only available to organizations that use one TroopWebHost site to manage both a girl troop and a boy troop. It allows you to filter the scouts by gender. This will make it much easier to create a subgroup specifically for the girl troop or boy troop.
Please note that this does not, by itself, add anyone to the dynamic subgroup. You must use additional criteria - like category, rank, or leadership - to include members in the group.  The system will then filter out any scouts who are not of the gender you selected.
The other criteria supplements the Rank selection by allowing you to select new scouts - i.e., scouts who have not yet earned a rank.
Check this box to select all active scouts who have not yet earned the Scout rank.
Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts have a new page where they can look up the complete Scouting History for any scout.
Click View History on any row to view the details for that scout. This will open a page with three tabs.
The first tab lists this scout's achievements across all age levels. For Cub Scouts this will be their Adventures and Badges. For Girl Scouts this will be Journeys, Badges & Awards.
The second tab shows any special awards earned by this scout.
The third tab shows this scout's community service hours and all events in which they participated.
The Board of Review report now lists this scout's participation history, with totals for camping nights, community service and conservation service.
The My Personal Information page now shows the dates on which your medical forms expire, rather than the date on which they were completed. This will make it easier to tell if you need to get another checkup soon.
Parents can view this information for their scouts by clicking Contact Information by that scout's name on the My Scouts page.
The My Personal Information page now also shows your Order of the Arrow milestone dates.
The BSA recently announced two new "Preview Adventures", each of which is offered to Cub Scouts at multiple age levels:
These adventures are now available in TroopWebHostCS.
