We have set up a small project team to complete some testing.
We have set up in addition to the public website, a City members only site, and a young leader site.
The necessary licences have been aquired for all adult volunteers who are members, and all young leaders.
This page will be distributed to all members with a registered email address.
Training materials will be prepared for the implementation.
User names and passwords will be distributed to District Exec members, and Group Scout Leaders, together with some short introductory training videos.
The leadership teams in each Scout Group will be sent user names and passwords, a Group at a time. Leaders who have an email address will be communicated to directly, those who do not have an email address will be communicated to through Group Scout Leaders.
We are hoping each Scout Group will nominate an adminisrater or super user for the Group, who will become the first point of contact for queries within the Group.
Training materials will be distributed, and available on the site for everybody.
We will feature the functionality, benefits and potential uses of the various elements of the site over time.
All District communication will be done through this technology.
Instructions will also be distributed as to how this technology is integrated with your other systems.
We hope you will all embrace this technology, and take advantage of what it offers to Scouting. Commercially each licence is worth over £50 per person per year.
