    Version: 1.45
    © Michael Rounds, CADesign

    Designed and implemented for a large troop to help streamline the process of attendance and campout signups using a method more in line to the youth’s mindset. Automatically notifies the primary parent via email of their scout’s campout signup on behalf of the troop treasurer to request payment.

    If you have an idea or feature that is implemented in a future release of TAP, your Troop will receive a free lifetime license for the application.

    Future capabilities planned include:

    • Attendance recording by merit badge counselor
    • Problem edit page -- dCMS of records.state

    To update the date of the Troop meeting used in the attendance roster, enter the date of the meeting in MM/DD/YYYY format. In the bottom section you can specify if the attendance page should also include signup for the next campout activity. If you want to include it, enter the name, date that you depart and date that you will return from the activity.

    When done, click the 'Save' button to update the database and make any changes active.


    Patrol Names

    Using this page you can change the name of any patrol and specify whether that patrol is active.

    If a Patrol changes names, you can update the patrol name here. All members of the patrol will stay the same. If a patrol disbands or you need to create a new patrol, change the active status. This will change which patrols are listed on the main patrols page.

    Merit Badge Selection

    The merit badge attendance entry page contains a series of buttons for each of the currently active merit badges. Selecting any merit badge button will bring up the attendance page where scouts can be marked as present for that class. New / additional merit badges can be added through the 'Start a New Merit Badge' button. A report on that weeks attendance at all of the listed merit badges is available through the 'Merit Badge Report' button.


    Merit Badge Attendance

    The merit badge attendance page allows the counselor to record scouts as present for that class. The attendance list will pre-populate with scouts who have been marked present in the class previously. Additional scouts can be added as present using the 'Add Scout' button.

    The 'Requirements' field is required, and should contain which requirements would be signed of during that class session. Additional optional notes can be added for clarification or additional information.


    Attendance Report

    The attendance report summarizes all scouts who have checked in as present and all scouts who have indicated they are signed up for the next campout event.
