Can not add events in scoutbook

After taking over as Cubmaster, I am trying to add events to our calendar, but it tells me only the key 3 can add events. Scouitbook lists me as Cubmaster, so it should recognize me as a key 3. Is there anyway for me to fix this?

@MatthewGoding - what is your registered position in The position in scoutbook is meaningless if you are not officially registered in

@MatthewGoding I assume you are trying at Make sure the dropdown profile at top right is on your SM position and not parent.

Also try a Shift + Refresh of page

I am a Troop Unit Fundraising Coordinator and cannot add events to the calendar either. I was also made Unit Secretary and Unit Training Chair, and I still cannot add the events to the calendar. Is this an issue of permissions?
Edited to add: I am able to add events to a Pack calendar (that I just left as a leader and Admin). When I open up the calendar to add an event, it will only give me the option to add to the Pack calendar, not the Troop calendar.

Never mind! Shift Refresh worked!!

I’m am trying to add events instead of sending messages. I have checked my account, I have done a hard refresh. As far as I can see, I am listed as Cubmadter everywhere. It just won’t let me add events to the calendar.


Do you have your Cubmaster role selected in the upper right of the Internet Advancement window?

I’m having this same issue, I’m listed as Cubmaster in Scoutbook and My scouting. The drop down in the right lists two options
Cub Scout, Pack 161: FAMILY, Position: Committee Member, (3 more positions/roles) OR
Parent/Guardian, Pack 161, Connection: Daughters Name There is no link to add events to calender


I think the grace period is messing up your account. I need to run this case by BSA IT.

Thank you, any help they can offer is appreciated. I want to start using Scoutbook to track attendance for meetings and events which no one in the previous pack leadership has done. I am finding it difficult to award scouts for stuff due to lack of tracking previously. No service hours have been tracked; no camping nights have been tracked. I know some of these kids should be getting recognition for stuff, but no one has any records other than advancement.


Hopefully IT will fix this sooner but I suspect in your case it will resolve itself on 6/1 since that will be the end of the grace period for your committee member position.

Ok, Thank you so much

I cannot think of any Cub Award but Messenger of Peace or Conservation that rely on logs. None rely on attendance. They go off requirements - hopefully your issue is a simple fix from the new membership system
