Unable to open Merit Badges/Start a new one

Can anyone help? For one of my scouts (SM here), I am unable to start any new merit badges and open the one he currently has started. Every time I click on either buttons, it brings me back to the home page. This does not happen for any other scouts.

I am troop admin and I have checked connections.

Hi Dawn,

Check the Scout’s Membership page. He might have an active pack membership, still. Add a Date Ended and see if that fixes the issue.

Thank you, but I don’t think it is that. He transferred from a different council and has a new BSA number.

Originally I was able to add one merit badge, but now I can’t click into that one or add any others.

I’m checking to see if any of our other troop admins can.

Still take a look at his Membership page. When you look under his current membership with your troop, do you see a green shield with checkmark (position approved)?

Yep, green shield.

I had the mom double his cub scout account. She put an end date on it and surprisingly that work.

Thank you for your help!
