Missing Advancement Button


I am advancement chair and myself and our SM are missing the advancement button for just one scout. So we are not able to record his advancement or assign MB counselors. Can you let me know how to fix this?

The scout is KS 127659177

Thank you!


The Scout is registered in a Troop and Explorer Post. When you go to his page in Scoutbook, is Troop selected at the top?

Yes it is. Thank you for your quick response.

Troop Dark means it is selected

I have requested a position sync. If you could wait until later today or tomorrow to see if that helps to resolve the issue.

Yes that one is selected.

I can, but nothing about his position has changed, so I am very confused as to why this happened?

@HeatherGiangregorio I looks like K’s registration with the Club expired 2/28/2021, so I ended his Explorer Club Membership in Scoutbook…

I do believe he is still with the Explorer Club, I can ask his mother.

It is possible that the Club’s recharter has not been processed by your council yet.

It could be possible but I am not part of that. I have contacted his mother who is also a leader in that Club so if he still is she can handle that. Thank you for your help!
