Troopmaster Access

Posted on Jan 14 2019 - 11:13am
Troop 1001 Parents,
A quick reminder for you.  
Our troop uses TroopMaster to track advancement, camping, service hours and more!  While you have always been able to access your scout’s advancement through our separate www.Troop1001.org website (find your scout in the Roster and click on their Rank), you can also use the TroopMaster portal to review two things you don’t currently get through the web site:
  1. Access to partially completed merit badge information
  2. Access to advancement information through a smartphone app
Please note...You will still need to access our troop web site for everything else (e.g. calendar, campout signup).  Therefore, if you choose to use the TroopMaster portal, you will need to keep track of two sets of logins.  There is no way to synchronize the two logins.
You should have already received an invitation to TroopMaster.  First, check your Inbox (and SPAM folder) for an email from DoNotReply@troopmaster.email with the subject “TroopMaster Web Account Settings.”  If you cannot find the email or need your login credentials reset, please send an email to webmaster@troop1001.org and I will manually reset them for you and resend the email.
Bookmark this link to quickly access TroopMaster using any web browswer: https://tmweb.troopmaster.com/mysite/TM50872 
Once you’ve logged in through a browser and changed your password, download the smartphone app by searching for “TM Mobile” in the Apple or Google app stores.

The first time you use the mobile application, it will ask you to complete three steps:  (1) Select which version of TroopMaster Web we use?  Pick 'TroopMaster Web 2.0'.  (2) You must select the the state (TX), and Troop Number (1001) by scrolling thru a pick list, and (3) enter your UserID and Password, then click 'Save Changes' to finalize the settings.  It will then ask you to 'Sync' so you can view the latest data.  Once complete, click the 'Home' icon and you should be able to explore and view your Scout's progress.
I hope this helps.  Let me know if you have any questions.
Webmaster Troop 1001
