Boy Scouts

Overview is an advanced scout pack / troop management system designed to simplify communication between leaders and parents. accomplishes this by distributing the responsibility of maintaining the website across the entire troop. Your Scout Master has total control over who has access to what. ScoutLander's customizable security settings enable leaders,parents, and/or scouts the ability to schedule events, upload photos, broadcast email messages, and post knowledge base articles.

Scout and User Management
User management is simplified by linking parents to one or more scouts in the program. This means that when a parent logs into the system they will see the events and get notifications for their scouts.

In addition, if you also have a Cub Scout and his pack is using ScoutLander, then you will get a combined view across packs, troops, and crews.

Your website will have the following three main areas:
  • Public Site
  • Secure Site
