There is a lag between recording or approvaing an advancement and being able to see that update on the scout’s profile page. The changes seems to be reflected a few minutes later and this leads us to think that the update did not happen or was not committed to the records. Sometimes refreshing the form will show the newly approved status.
If an advancement is updated in IA then that update should be visible immediately on other IA pages or lists. I’m not talking about an update that would come through any other scouting tool, just working within a single IA session for the same user.
