For communities created using one of the scout related templates, an Online Scout Manager account can be associated with the Tangles community
Linking an Online Scout Manager (OSM) account, allows a community admin to synchronise member and event information from OSM into Tangles and to optionally update it in OSM when it is updated in Tangles.
Tangles can also be configured to use event sign-up information from OSM to add participants to a Tangles event when participants are added in OSM. In this case, Tangles treats attendance in the same way as if a Tangles event admin had added or removed participants and does not use the Tangles sign-up mechanism. Participants signing up in Tangles are not currently reflected back to OSM.
To create a link, navigate to the community view in the Tangles web interface for the community that you wish to link to OSM (which must have been created with one of the scouting templates) and click on the configure action icon to chnage the community settings.
OSM synchronisation can be enabled or disabled. When enabled it will synchronise with OSM on a regular basis to keep the data up to date.
