Merit Badge counselor form no longer appear

When I go to lookup merit badge counselors and hit the invite. The personal connection drop down shows up but no merit badge counselors list appears.

It is only for admins now - a security hole was found and being worked on

What do I do in the mean time?
When is the fix to be done?
I am the troop administrator

When you say “troop administrator” do you mean in Scoutbook you are listed as Troop Admin?
When you say “Troopmaster 472” do you mean Scoutmaster?


There is a known issue with searching for adults on both the connections pages and the add leader pages. The developers are aware of the issue and are working on a fix. At this time we do not know when it will be released.

Sorry ,yes I am Scoutmaster for Troop 472 and am administrator of our Scoutbook .
Our District really wants everything done electronically and I currently have a Scout trying to finish a merit badge to attain Eagle . So is there any work around for me to assign a merit badge counselor or do I have to use a hard copy blue card and get a list of counselors from the District?

The MB Counselor Search in Scoutbook is working. You can still use this to find a MBC for the Scout. You may not be able to connect the Scout to the MBC in Scoutbook due to the bug.

MBCs are not required to use Scoutbook. A physical Blue Card must still be accepted so that would be the workaround for the Scout.
