About Pack Master Web

The Pack Master Web module works with Xoops version 2.07. I built this module because the Cub Scout Pack that my son is a member of uses Pack Master Software from Troopmaster Software, Inc. Pack Master allows a Cub Scout Pack to track the advancement of the Cub Scouts and the adult leaders. It also creates some interesting reports. Pack Master is a Windows program an while there are add-ons to allow for sharing of the data files. I started making a web site for our pack. I used Xoops to setup the web site. As the pack leadership discussed what we wanted on the site, we decided that it would be nice if the boys and their parents could verify that we have recorded their progress towards their ranks. Pack Master Web was born. The initial plan was to allow us to upload CSV (Comma Separated Variable) files exported from Pack Master into the Pack Master Web module. Later development may include data entry so the whole process can be done on our web site.



Using Pack Master Web

Pack Master Web is easy to use. Currently the only user feature is a block that displays a drop down list of Cub Scouts. The user selects the Cub Scout that they want to check the advancement for and then click on that advancement tab they want to check Tiger, Bobcat, Wolf, Bear, Webelos etc. Thats is for now.
