Cannot find MBC in scout book, but counselor is sure she is in there

There is a difference between what you can see when searching:

MB Counselor List
[Scout]'s Connections
searching for a MBC from within the Scout’s merit badge page

@SteveMacCall-Carter - it would help if you spelled my last name correctly it is hornak

Stephen showed up just fine for me, and I’d be genuinely surprised if my council did anything special with Scoutbook to permit it.

@CharleyHamilton - thank you for proving it is not a council thing

Sorry for the misspelling so I put in your correct spelling and yes you did show up. BUT you are in my council so it would show up.

@SteveMacCall-Carter - well, Charlie is not in our council and i show up in the search and council did nothing to make that happen.

I wonder if the confusion is related to locating counselors who are only listed as working with a particular unit or in a particular district. Those counselors do not show up unless you’re in the relevant unit/district.

I suppose we could try the system the other way around. I changed my visibility to Worldwide. You should be able to find me (Charles Hamilton) for Citizenship in Society (among others, but that probably helps eliminate a lot of the other Charles Hamiltons out there).

I have no idea what to tell you. I have had three people in Chester County Council try to connect me with scouts and they cannot connect with me as an MBC. This also happened when I tried to connect with others in their council too.

@SteveMacCall-Carter If they search for you from the [Scout]'s Connections page in Scoutbook, they can find you.

The original poster on this thread was searching for the MBC from within the merit badge itself.

@CharleyHamilton - I think this is you :slight_smile:

Ayup. That’s me. :slight_smile:

@JenniferOlinger - I think this is you from the connection page


When searching from the connections page, you also have to select include MBCs only and you have to have at least pieces of info that match.

I just found you. In your case. It’s important that they use your legal name, Stephen, instead of your nick name.


What say you now @SteveMacCall-Carter … so typical of this council
