How to Create Your Personal Inventory Using TroveStar Reference Data

It is easy and fast to use TroveStar's 'collection tracking' system to create a Personal Inventory (based on the various Collections already stored within TroveStar).

PLEASE NOTE: In order to access the Inventory functionality on TroveStar, you must do two things.

FIRST: create a TroveStar account.
SECOND: request permission to access the collection that interests you.

Creating an account is free, easy and fast. Please click here to learn how to create one.

To grab a permit for the Collection that interests you, please follow this link.

Once you have completed these two steps, you can now create your own personal inventory.

How to create an inventory

  1. Go to the Collection Manager page at this link:

  2. On the Collection Manager page you can do two things:
    • Add a new Train Inventory
    • View the list of Public Collections (inventories that fellow TroveStar users have chosen to make public)

  3. Please click on the Add a new Train Inventory button.

  4. On this page, you get to name your inventory.

  5. In my case, to create my own inventory, I will type 'JennaTrainStuff' into the box that says "type name here". Please make sure to NOT include the “<” or “>” symbols in your Inventory name.

  6. Hit “Enter”

  7. You will now see your new Inventory (right now think of it as an empty folder that you will fill with items) on the Collection Manager page under the My Collections heading.

Now that you have created your Personal Inventory, you can populate it. How to add items to your new Personal Inventory
