Magic Mailing Lists


What Are They?

Magic mailing lists are mailing lists created automatically by TroopTrack for you that figure out the recipients of the list based on their position in the troop. TroopTrack comes with the following magic mailing lists:

Name Recipients Every adult who is a member of a household with scouts Every scout in your unit Every member of your unit with a leadership position Every member of your unit Every adult member of your unit Every member of the patrol

Note: You can rename these mailing lists to whatever you want, so please refer to your communicate badge for an exact list.

How To Get There

Just click on the Communicate badge.
