The TroopTrack team hopes everyone is doing well and staying safe. As always, the safety of our scouts, volunteers, employees and communities is our top priority. As we monitor and adjust to the ever–changing Coronavirus pandemic, TroopTrack is determined to provide the tools that scout groups need to stay in contact and move forward.
As part of that mission, we are excited to announce our new chat feature! Introducing TroopTrack Chatterboxes!
Although it is still a feature in beta we thought it was an important time to improve troop communication for all our TroopTrack groups. Troops/Packs/Units/Groups can enable chat by going to Settings "⚙" > Edit Troop Settings > TroopTrack Settings > toggle chat on and get to chatting!
Keep in mind, chat is a beta feature and things may not work, look unappealing, and even dysfunctional. Your feedback is absolutely crucial and we invite you to leave it on the "Beta: Chatterboxes" thread on the TroopTrack Community.
Our team has been busy at work improving TroopTrack. We would like to share some of the other noteworthy features and bug fixes that have happened over the past month.
Troop-wide and one-on-one chat with the new Chatterbox feature. You can create and manage chat rooms with the Chatterbox Privilege enabled.
Notifications. Now on the TroopTrack mobile app and the website TroopTrack users now have a notification center. In the notification center you will see notifications for:
New Chat Messages
New Signup sheet
New Member Applications (if privilege is enabled)
Money Account Low Balance
Money Account Changes
National Holidays on calendar
Click on day to start event on that day

Updated calendar integrations
New “Action” menu for all action items within tables
Payment orders and description on Manage Orders page
Dynamic Meeting Invitations. The way TroopTrack handled inviting members to events has been redesigned. This fixes the multiple listings of members on events. It is a new way of inviting members to events, and in the background, it is a new way of handling members that are invited to events. To enable this new feature go to Settings "⚙" > Edit Troop Settings > TroopTrack Settings > Toggle on dynamic meeting invitations. Once that is enabled, you will notice a new way of inviting members to events on every new event. It will not change existing or past events, but only new events. You will know when the new dynamic meeting invitation and members is enabled because you will see a new members tab on the event creation page.
