Website Admin

Subpage Listing

This website admin page is not meant for general membership consumption (although obviously it is available to all members).  It is to explain and document how Troop 622 goes about communicating to its members and other interested parties through the website and all other digital means.  Specifically,
  • how the troop groups and website are organized
  • what are responsibility of the troop accounts, what can they do, and what real person fills that role today
  • additional notes about learnings gleaned from administering the website
If the webmaster ever leaves for that happy campground in the sky, those left behind will want to start here.

  2. the Scout Webmaster role is held by a scout and rotates every 6 months with the rest of the troop leadership positions.

Changing Role Holders and Associated Emails

When a role turns over to a new person, the Webmaster should "clean up" the account by removing the old role holder personalized data:

  • reset the password (to remove the access from the former role holder)
  • sign in as role and "clean up"
    • remove old forwarding address, adding new role holder's email address as new forward (Directions)

Additional Accounts of Interest

A guest account with full read privileges to the entire website.  Can be provided temporarily to any trusted individual to give full access to the website.  Should be temporary only, and access revoked by changing the password.



The Google group Troop-622 ( is the membership-defining group for the troop, administered by the Membership Chair.  Note that it is owned by Kim Bianco, not, and was created outside of Google Apps.  We have been able to work around this so far by creating a Google Apps group Troop 622 Members, granting website access to this group, and making Kim's group Troop-622 a member of Troop 622 Members.otes
