We have purchased Scoutrax advancement software (3.x) but are disappointed
that it will not allow data to entered in non-chronological order and then
sorted. It requires that everything be entered in the order in which it
was received and, once entered, the data cannot be rearranged. For a troop
that has not previously tracked things electronically, this means being
sure that every boy's merit badges and rank advancements are carefully
listed on paper before beginning to enter information in the computer.
Can anyone provide a comparison as to how friendly Troopmaster (or other
software) is as regards this issue, and/or other thought about your
favorite software packages?
p.s.: We have an IBM 386.
