Connections disappeared

I am registered as a merit badge counselor. I joined troop commitee in late October. Finally got added to the troop roster about a week ago, but did not have ability to view scouts besides my own son. I thought perhaps that woild happen in a future sync. Logged in today and all merit badge functions are gone, and all my connections were deleted execpt my son, nephew and one other random scout. I had 50+ active connections with ongoing merit badges. Now instead of adding connections to scouts in my home unit, all connections except those 3 are gone.

@SherryValencik Looks like your council or district let the MBC expire it’s registration - you need to contact them

In addition to @DonovanMcNeil’s comments above,

Committee members do not (by default) get granted connections to scouts in the unit. They can be granted connections by:

  • being connected by a unit admin (e.g. using Connections Manager) which only grants connections to scouts who are active as of the time that the connections are made.
  • having the Unit Admin functional role added by a Unit Admin in Scoutbook (automatic Full Control of all current and future scouts), or
  • being added as a Key 3 Delegate (functional role) by one of the Unit Key 3 at my.scouting (automatic Full Control of all current and future scouts).

This is separate from the MBC issues you and Donovan discussed above.

Thanks Charley. That info is helpful.

Thanks Donovan. It is odd and random. I know i was renewed in November. Counseled at Merit badge college a few weeks ago, and was asked to counsel at our community day event in September. Im thinking someone made a mistake somehow.

Almost forgot. If council fixes and removes the merit badge counselor refistration, will the 5p+ connections i hadvin place come back? I was working with a lot of out of council scouts. I would be a real undertaking to add all those connections back individually.

Once a connection is removed, it’s gone.

One suggestion is to retain the BSA IDs and last name of the scouts for each MB. With that info, I believe you can use the Feature Assistant Extension to re-make the connections reasonably quickly.
