ScoutsTracker Webinar Training
Dec 6, 2017 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm
Dave Caughey, owner of Dakemi, the company producing the ScoutsTracker programs, has offered to give Shining Waters Council an online webinar next Wednesday, December 6, 7:30pm to 9:00pm.
The session will cover the basic functionality of ScoutsTracker through demonstration of its capabilities.
The session will use Skype for the screen sharing and a telephone conference line for the audio. Since we’re expecting several people to join in the conference, the conference line will be muted for most of the presentation, ie. background noise will be minimized. Near the end of the presentation, the lines will be opened for questions. Depending on how the session goes, we may arrange another session to cover some of the more advanced topics.
To access Skype, click on the link below (or copy this url into your browser): https://meet.lync.com/scoutscanada/wayne.morrison/H06M5JB1
I suggest accessing the program 5 minutes before the meeting start in case your system needs to download any modules. The audio conference line is limited to 100 participants, if we reach the maximum, we apologize and will schedule a second session.
