Welcome! This forum has a treasure trove of great info – Scouters helping Scouters! Just a heads up, though - all content, information, and opinions shared on this forum are those of the author, not the BSA.
I have one scout that finished the Cooking merit badge. This badge’s completion appears different from all of his others. In the mobile app it does not appear with a completed date. In his Eagle Application report, it appears without our UNIT NO.
Any recommendations? We have not seen this with any other Scout in our unit.
Because the BSA systems do not track which unit a Scout was a member of when a MB was earned, if there is not a membership record in SB that cover the MB date, there is no way for SB to determine the unit number to record.
A Scout can edit the unit in the Eagle application after Scoutbook generates it.
I appreciate the suggestions. It’s strange because he just completed and was awarded it in 2022, but he crossed over to the Troop in 2017. He’s never been in a different Troop.
Anyway this morning when I run his Eagle report it does show the UNIT NO, and I’m not sure why. It definitely did not show initially, but I emailed our local Director of Field Service who looked at it for us so maybe he was able to update something.
It appeared this way initially on a smartphone for the Scout’s parent, and then for me via Scoutbook on a computer web browser the same day. But when I ran it again the next day on the same computer and browser, I do see the unit number now. So, it seems like this resolved itself one way or another.
