Unlimited Storage in the Cloud
Microsoft's Azure cloud storage solution gives us the ability to offer virtually unlimited storage for photos and documents. By selecting their "Geo Redundant" option
we've eliminated any risk of data loss, as all data is duplicated in multiple geographical locations.
This allows us to dedicate the high speed disk on our server to database data - the text that makes up your membership records, advancement, monetary transactions, etc.
Surprisingly, your databases take up a relatively small amount of storage compared to the space required for photos and documents.
Going forward we will introduce functions that take advantage of this new unlimited capacity for photos and documents.
As part of this effort we
upgraded our software to the current version of the Microsoft .NET Framework.
This keeps us up to date with the latest programming tools.
We made the entry of "time of day" information much easier. You no longer have to enter the ":" - the system will insert it in the appropriate position. The system will
also let you enter just the hour and will fill in the ":00" for you when you exit the field.
The event participation export now includes the names of the leaders of each event.
The system will no longer allow you to complete the first requirement for Star, Life, or Eagle unless the scout has already earned the previous rank.
Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions about these or any other features.
Thank you for your support!
