Automatic Email Lists and Public Pages
September 5th, 2008
Rochester, NY
SOAR, a premier provider of quality online services to Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, and Girl Scout Troops announced today Automatic Email List and Public Page features for its hosted website services - myPack, myTroop, and myGirlScout.

Automatic Email Lists

This new feature will automatically create and maintain a number of important Email Lists for your Pack or Troop based on information from your Roster. These lists will be kept up-to-date as Roster information is modified on your website. This will ensure the right members will receive important information while at the same time removing one more administrative task you need to worry about.

The following Email Lists will be created and maintained.

  • announce@ contains all members (scout, parents, and leader) and can be used for all general communiation.
  • leaders@ contains only those members that hold leadership positions and can be used for both communiation and discussion.
  • An Email List for each Den/Patrol will be created containing the scouts and parents associated with that Den/Patrol.

Public Pages

SOAR websites are setup to meet both BSA website guidelines and youth protection policies. As such only limited information is available to the public for viewing.

The new Public Pages feature allows customers to add additional pages that can be viewed by the public. This feature can be used to display additional information about your unit to potential scouts, provide information about unit fundraisers, and/or describe community service projects.

SOAR continues to provide its customers new and upgraded features for the same yearly cost.
