Yesterday, I spoke with the registrar at my council concerning the
TroopMaster 2000 interface with ScoutNet 2000.
With our advancement report for June, we created a diskette which
the registrar was able to read into the ScoutNet 2000 records.
Our advancement report included 140 merit badges and 5
advancements in rank so it was a good test for the interface.
You may want to check to see if your council wants to take advantage
of this feature which will save your registrar a great deal of time and
insure more accurate advancement records.
To do this, your troop has to be using TroopMaster 2000 V1.09.
If you don't have the V1.09 update, you may
download it from <http://www.troopmaster.com/>.
Remember that you will still need to turn in the council and district
"paper" copies of the advancement report as well as the diskette.
Your council may also ask that you turn in a summary report of all
the awards printed on the advancement report. This is fairly easy
to create by running a TroopMaster "Court of Honor" report at the
same time you run the Advancement Report. If you don't want to
print the whole Court of Honor report, you can save it to a diskette
or to your hard drive and then use your word processor to copy
and print the summary page.
