Changing status from 'reported' to 'awarded'

I’m our new Advancement Chair and am trying to navigate…How do I change the status of a Rank or Merit badge from ‘recorded’ to ‘awarded’. The edit key only seems to allow a date change, not a status change.

I understand that “Awarded” is a status that is unique to the Scoutbook side of the house, rather than the IA side.

Both talk to the same database, but as far as I know you can only set the “Approved” and “Awarded” flags from Scoutbook. Using both Scoutbook and IA for the same unit is not recommended, since it can result in unexpected behavior.
