Upload Members From ScoutNet

If your group is a unit of Boy Scouts of America™, you may be able to obtain a membership file from their ScoutNet™ system.  You can load your members into your TroopWebHostCS database from this file.

Select Upload Members From ScoutNet from the Upload Members submenu on your Membership menu to see a page like the one shown below.

This function will add new members to your database, and will also generate user IDs and passwords for each new member.  It will not create relationships between parents and scouts, since the ScoutNet file does not contain that information.

It will also update existing membership records if you select the Update Existing Records option.

A record must match exactly on first, middle, and last name, and date of birth in order to be updated. If an exact match is not found, the system will create a new record for this person.

If you already have members in the database, we recommend that you always use the Trial Run option the first time you try to upload a file.  This will allow you to see which records will be added and which will be updated, without actually affecting your database.
