Creating a Custom Award


#1

What You Can Do

You can create custom awards just for your troop or pack that you can award to any member of your unit. This is a great way to help your scouting unit develop it's own unique sense of personality and to encourage participation.

If you find yourself using the custom awards feature to create officially recognized awards that are missing from TroopTrack, please open a support ticket instead and we will add the awards ASAP.

How to Get There

To Create a Custom Award, you will need to go through the Manage Badge, then Select Settings from the drop down menu box, then finally Create a Custom Award option as shown below:

How It Works

Once you click "Create a Custom Award", you will see this screen:

Fill out the form and click "Save". Once the form is saved, you will be able to proceed to the next step, entering the individual requirements, like this:

Save the award and click "About Your Troop" again. You will now see the award you created under your list of custom awards. Return here to add other awards.

Using a Custom Award

Custom awards work just like any other award. You can add them using the "Record Progress" workflow, as shown below:

 

Managing your Custom Awards

You can always edit or even delete custom awards that you've already created. To get the manage custom awards screen, click Manage-->About Your Troop, and choose the Custom Awards Just For Your Troop tab. 

 

Once you're on this page, you'll see a list of all your troop's custom awards, with options to edit, delete, or just see each one individually.

When do you anticipate Trail Life units being able to create custom awards? This functionality is currently broken for us.


#3

Is it broken or just not available? I can’t remember off the top of my head if we turned that off or if it’s just messed up.


#4

The functionality is there but when you try and actually create it you get an error message. I would like to be able to track leaves and was going to create a custom award since it’s not built into the standard awards available. Alas, 'tis impossible it seems. :frowning:


#5

Okay, let’s add it as a new topic in the bug category - would you mind doing that?


#6

How do you delete a custom award?

Hi @KelsieC ,

Do you know how to delete custom awards? I have a test one that I am done with, but can’t find a handy red X nearby.

Thanks!
