The development of the Scout Tracker Open Source project started as a local project for one Troop to track the boys' progress as well as report their progress to the parents. There always seemed to be a disconnect with the parents on the progress of their scout. The application is designed to allow parents to see an on demand and up to date snap shot of their boys progress. It morphed into more than just a tracker. The full project has the ability to track counselor lists, merit badges, service projects, and miscellaneous items. With a little bit of programming, you can have the scouts progress emailed to the parents each week.
Scout Tracker tracks Boy Scout advancements towards their Eagle Scout. Scouts can monitor their camping nights, service hours, and leadership. Scoutmasters can let the boys know of incomplete requirements without affecting the boy's advancement records. Worksheets created for the scouts are stored in a database for easy view and hide access. Scouts can view the progress of all scouts to enable them to find other scouts who need to work on the same requirement or merit badge. Only leaders and administrators can change data on the site. The best part is that parents and scouts can access their information anytime they want without having to call the Scoutmaster.
