Designed For Mobile and Desktop
With our responsive design techniques, every page of your TroopWebHost site adapts to the size of your screen.
On your cell phone you will be able to scroll vertically through the content, while on a desktop the page will widen to use the available space.
All of your troop's information will be at your fingertips, wherever you go.
And our new mobile app works even when you don't have Internet access!
Design your home page and create as many additional pages as you'd like.
Insert "widgets" to display information from your database, like recent photos or current announcements and upcoming events.
Add a "Contact Us" form to any public page. When visitors submit the form their information will be sent to designated leaders.
You can choose to make your photo gallery public, or limit it to members of your troop after they log on. Any number of photos may be linked to each event on your calendar.
Create membership records for scouts, parents, adult leaders, outside merit badge counselors, and alumni. Link parents to their scouts so they can access their information.
Members log on to the site to keep their contact information up to date. Parents and adult leaders fill out a skills and interests questionaire to indicate how they could be useful to the troop.
Track all completed training and identify leaders who need to complete or renew specific training courses.
Enter leadership history for scouts and adults. Current adult leaders can be displayed on your public site, along with their photos and bios.
Create dynamic member lists based on rules like "all First Class scouts and above, and their parents" so you can send them e-mails and create events that are just for them.
Maintain Order of the Arrow advancement dates and Mic-O-Say tribal membership.
Prepare for rechartering by tracking the registered members to be included in each charter year, then produce a ScoutNet-compatible recharter file to upload to the BSA.
Collect and report your troop's Journey To Excellence scores.
If you are thinking about adding a Scouts BSA troop for girls, please see what we have to offer.
The requirements for every rank and every merit badge are already in the system, updated for you as new versions are released.
Quickly sign off on requirements for a group of scouts, or for individual scouts.
Some requirements are automatically marked complete based on a scout's activities, such as participation in community service or holding a qualified leadership position.
Identify requirements that are still needed for scouts working their way toward First Class, and for those working their way up to Eagle.
Identify scouts who are not advancing and those who just need a Scoutmaster Conference and Board of Review to complete their next rank.
Produce reports and labels to prepare for your next Court of Honor.
Transfer recent advancement data electronically to the BSA's Internet Advancement 2.0 page.
Scouts can view their status on-line and request sign-off on requirements they've completed.
Add events to your calendar for every upcoming campout, meeting, community service, fundraiser, or other troop activity.
Select from the pre-defined event types or create your own to meet your needs.
Maintain detailed information on each event location, including a map, directions, and link to its website.
Let parents and scouts sign up for events. Parents submit an electronic permission slip on-line. Confirm their participation by taking attendance.
Automatically credit attendees for camping nights, service hours, hiking miles, cycling miles, and paddling miles. Use this information to sign off on rank and merit badge requirements.
Create shifts for fundraisers - like Christmas Tree sales - and allow members to sign up for those shifts. Shifts can also be used for potluck dinners to sign up for particular types of food.
Makes your treasurer's job a piece of cake!
Tracks balances for member accounts, troop checking account, and every event, with a minimum of effort.
Reserve accounts can track advance payments for summer camp or Philmont.
The Payment Collector allows your treasurer to quickly accept payments at meetings, via cash, checks or credit/debit cards.
Group transactions make it easy to charge dues, and to charge event participants for their share of the costs.
Adult leaders can request reimbursement for expenses incurred on campouts, which the Treasurer reviews and approves.
Quickly create annual budgets and measure actual performance against budget.
Scouts and parents can view their balances and transaction history on-line.
Parents can make payments to the troop on-line via PayPal, which are automatically posted to their account.
Balancing your troop checkbook is a breeze - just check off the deposits and withdrawals from each statement.
Manage every aspect of your fundraiser, from orders to inventory and product delivery.
Download photos, descriptions and pricing of the current Popcorn fundraiser items.
Scouts can enter their own orders on-line and the system consolidates all orders so you know exactly what you need to buy.
Customers can order merchandise on-line directly from a scout, using that scout's personal URL at the ScoutSales.org website.
Accept credit cards when selling direct from a retail location and track all sales.
When you're ready to distribute product, reports show the quantities going to each scout. Scouts can print out their own orders to organize their deliveries.
Sales campaigns can also be created to sell merchandise - like troop t-shirts - directly to your members. Members can pay for items via PayPal or by deducting from their personal account.
Send mass e-mail and SMS messages to your entire troop, or selected members or subgroups.
Messages can be sent from the site, or they can be sent from any e-mail client using our new e-mail relay addresses.
The system automatically generates a weekly electronic newsletter that is e-mailed to every member of the troop.
The newsletter includes current announcements, upcoming events, and is personalized to each recipient with their sign-up status, medical forms that are about to expire, training that is about to expire, troop equipment and library materials that are checked out to family members, account balances, recent transaction history, merit badges in progress, and requirements that are needed for the scout's next Boy Scout rank or Venturing rank.
The system sends out automated reminders for upcoming events. Parents and scouts can subscribe to the Troop Calendar to stay aware of scheduled activities on their cell phone's calendar application.
And with TroopWebHost, communication goes both ways! Members can log on to the site to view all messages they've received or sent, and to reply to any message. They can also respond to survey questions posed by troop leaders, to cast their vote on important topics.
