Managing a Library

What You Can Do

TroopTrack let's you create a library where you can keep track of all the books in your troop or pack. You can keep track of the condition of your books and who has them. You can also control who can edit book information using the manage documents privilege. Many troops like to give this privilege to scouts.

How to Get There

Like most things, you can get to the library using the Manage Badge menu.

Managing Books

The Library looks like this. Some features will only be visible to user's with the manage equipment privilege.

 

Whether you are adding or editing a book, the form will be the same, as shown below:

 

Title: Title of the book. If you have more than one copy, you might consider numbering them and including the number (i.e. Swimming Merit Badge Book #3)

Description: Provide any additional information that might be needed to help someone decide if the book will meet their needs.

Condition: It's a good idea to keep track of the condition of the item and update it whenever the item is checked out or returned.

Photo: A picture is worth a 1000 words. Take a picture and upload it with this form. Picture size must be less than 1 MB.
