Amorak, Thanks! Now I know more about where to focus my efforts.
“TurboNet” seemed too ambitious to me, when I’m trying to get comfortable with the TroopTrack basics (even if it means more typing). But I found the how-to video in Help – https://troop1000.trooptrack.com/help_pages?page=62 – and will take a look.
My basic question is: “Can you query the TroopTrack database by some criterion (Scouts, ranks, merit badges, dates, etc.), and get the listing of results that you want?”
In this case, I had input the date “2018-05-21” in the field "Reported to Council On” as I added and corrected information, with the intention of generating a listing of Scouts’ Advancements and Scouts’ Merit Badges that I could (manually) turn into an Advancement Report.
But it may be that TroopTrack lacks this functionality.
“Achieve->Present Awards” is a handy overview webpage as well.
When I go to “Achieve->Present Awards”, I get a “report” that I can’t make heads or tails of. It consists of 38 advancement events, most of which are months or years in the past, and have already been reported. It lacks most of the recent events that I want to report.
When I go to “Achieve -> Print Advancement Report”, I get a list of 38 different advancement events, which are no better.
I’d revise the selection criteria – but I don’t know what it is or how to set it.
I am having similar problems when I run “Achieve -> TurboNet Advancement Report”. I get a report, but it includes a lot of stuff I don’t want, and misses most of what I do want.
I must be missing something pretty basic about TroopTrack, but I don’t know what it is.
