Features

Sync'd to the Cloud

All your data is sync'd to the cloud so if you change devices (or use multiple devices), the data will always be there.

Everyone Stays In-Sync

Every device for every Girl Scout in your troop automatically stays in sync with every other device. When a TCM transfers cookies to a Girl Scout, it instantly shows up on their device and they can fulfill orders right away.

See Everything

Easily see how many cookies each Girl Scout has sold, has in inventory, or has back ordered.

Automatic Calculations

The app automatically calculates how much each Girl Scout owes based on the number of cookies they've received. It also calculates order totals, booth sales totals, and much more.

Single User Option

Not a TCM or don't want to use the app for the whole troop? Not a problem! The app also has a single user mode so you can track only your Girl Scout(s) inventory and sales.

Supports Transfers

Cookie transfers are as easy as a few taps. Transfer between Girl Scouts, from a Girl Scout to the troop, or even between troops.

Nutritional Information

There's a dedicated screen to see pictures and descriptions of every cookie. Tap on one to see ingredients, allergy information, dietary exchange, and nutritional information.

Reports

Several reports are available to see aggregated data either directly in the app or sent to your email for offline viewing in your favorite spreadsheet application.

How it works

The Cookie Management app is extremely powerful but designed to be easy to use. The sections and actions you take in the app mirror the actions you perform in real life. The videos below go over each section and discuss its purpose as well as how to use it.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the app cost money?

Yes and no. When you download the app for the first time, you'll have the option of purchasing either a troop or family account. Whichever you purchase will give you access to the app for that season. Any additional user accounts (labeled 'Parents' in the app) that you create will be able to login and access the app for free. Additionally, if you choose not to renew for the following season, you will still have access to all of your data from the season you did purchase.

Why do you charge for each season?

There is a robust infrastructure behind the scenes that support the app and data synchronization between devices. The fees I charge in the app help offset the monthly costs to keep everything running.

What's the difference between troop and familiy accounts?

Troop accounts provide full access to the app. You'll be able to add all members of your troop and create accounts for them. They will be able to download and use the app for free and there is no limit to the number of user accounts you can add. This is the account that troop leaders and TCMs should purchase.

On the other hand, family accounts provide basic access to the app. You'll still be able to add multiple user accounts but will be limited in the number of Girl Scouts you can add. You also will still get the same data synchronization between devices that the troop account gets. If you're a Girl Scout parent who wants to track your inventory, sales, and payments, then this is the account for you.

What devices does the app support?

The is available in both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store and will work on almost every iOS and Android device, both phones and tablets.

How do I add user accounts?

User accounts are called "Parents" in the app and are how you allow parents (and even Girl Scouts) in your troop to log into the app. To create one, you'll first need to log into the app, tap on Girl Scouts and add a Girl Scout. Once the app finishes saving the new Girl Scout, you'll see a section called "Parents" just below the Girl Scout's name fields. Tap the "Add" button next to it and fill out the various fields. The app will automatically send an email to them with instructions on accessing and logging into the app.

How do I keep my parents from accessing other Girl Scouts' data?

When you create an user account, you are tieing it to a specific Girl Scout. If you do not give them Troop Cookie Manager privileges (by checking the corresponding box when creating their account), then they will not be able to change any other Girl Scouts' data or see sensitive information such as how much they owe and have paid. They will still be able to see how many cookies the other Girl Scouts have in inventory and have sold.

If you do not want them seeing any inventory data for other Girl Scouts, then you'll need to go to the home screen, tap the hamburger icon in the top green bar, tap "Manage Troop" and check the box "Hide Inventory From Non-TCMs".

Story behind the app

My wife has been a Girl Scout troop leader and cookie mom for a long time. For years, I watched the TCMs in the troop struggle with keeping track of who has what cookies, how much each Girl Scout owes, how many cookies are in inventory, etc. They tried using paper trails, spreadsheets, and whatever else they could to help them, but their numbers would still not match up. There were times that they spent multiple days trying to reconcile everything at the end of the season. I could see how frustrating it was for everyone.

After seeing this happen over and over, I told her I could make an app that would do all of this for them. Her eyes lit up and she said, "really?!" And so began development of the Cookie Management app. Having a wife who is a seasoned troop leader and cookie mom helped immensely in structuring the app in a way that makes sense and matches the day-to-day activities the troop and Girl Scouts go through during cookie season. Each year her troop has used it they have had very little, if any, issues reconciling the numbers at the end of the season. They love it and I think you will to!

I struggled for four years creating a plethora of different spreadsheets to do everything that this app does for me, digitally. I signed my troop up for the 2017 season and instantly saw the value in it, although I didn’t fully utilize it because there was so much that it could do that I couldn’t quite figure out, although the app developer was quick to respond to my questions with patience. I’m glad I stuck with it, however. When I went to reregister my troop for the 2018 season I saw that the developer had created a Cookie Management website with TONS of helpful user instructional videos. Everything became instantly clear! We are one week into cookie season and not only am I using it to track inventory for both my troop and my own daughter, but this year my daughter is using it for booth sales as well, and it is WONDERFUL!! I could go into great detail about all of the cool things that this app can do but you can find all of the videos for them online now! Some of my moms who did not use the app last year are having the same first-time-user struggles that I did, but that is to be expected when you’re new to it. Be patient and stick with this amazing tool!! (I only wish our Council recognized the signatures so that I didn’t still have to carry around that blasted little receipt book!) The only thing that could possibly make this app any better would be if GSUSA could partner with the developer to fully legitimize it.

Such a great tool! makes it easy to track inventory, sales, payments and back orders!

I'm about to start my 3rd year using this app and I LOVE it. I have a large troop (37). Parents have the choice to use it (some use it fully with customer tracking, some just place a few sales entries to make the numbers work and some don't use it at all). I use it for troop & girl inventory plus managing outstanding balances. Emails sent for each transaction (I also give paper receipts!) are easy to search and help confirm pickups and returns. I had a flawless season last year.

Amazing App. To be honest this has made cookie season enjoyable again for me. The app updates real time, booths can be tracked easily. I love that I can log in during a booth that I am not at and see updated numbers with out having to bother parents. This is by far the best $5.99 I have spent for our troop.
