Did not work for me

It allows me to send them to craft but not to go on gathering missions...

I have the same issue, happened after one of my companion became unavailable.

Logged out, etc, nothing fixed it.

I ll try the "learn a mission" fix now and see if that works. Maybe otherwise it will fix itself when my companion becomes available again.

In every case this is a major issue that requires fixing asap.

Just adding a +1 for this issue, again happened once I got to a certain point in Act 3 that made a certain companion unavailable on an IA.

Relogging didn't help and neither does using a mission disc!

That standard reply is really starting to annoy me. I suspect they just autoreply to tickets after a certain amount of time.
Basically it just says:
"We got no idea if you're doing something wrong or if it's a bug in the game. If it's a bug, there is a chance we may fix it at some point, but we can't say when/if that will happen.
If it's a game game breaking bug, well too bad... you're pretty much screwed for now.
Have a nice day.

I'm not saying everything should be fixed asap, which I know is impossible, but they could at least put just a tiny amount of effort in to their replies so that you know, whether this is actually a bug or not.

I had this issue this morning. I couldn't send Qyzen on a gathering mission. I dismissed him, then re-summoned him and I was able to send him out to gather.

Give that a whirl, it worked for me.

The "fix" with the epic mission does work, it was a lvl 340 (investigation) for me. I'll try with a lower lvl one see if it works. Problem is when they came back , I couldnt send them again ... So I'll try an other solution when I'm on the imperial fleet.

@Simabi: That's an other bug, if you send one of your companions which is active at the moment, you cant send other to missions neither summon them. So just be carefull with that and you wont have to log out each time

The other solution, so it wont cost too much money will be to buy or get an epic mission of your mission crew skill (i think it should work for every one of them), send one of your companion to this mission, then the others, the you cancel the epic mission (just right click on it) and then you can send this companion to a real mission , and you will get all the money back so it will just cost the pric of the epic mission.
It worked with a lower lvl (200ish one) for me on investigation but it should work with other crew skills too !

Hope i'm clear enough, i'm not sure my english is da best

Really annoying bug, got it too after one of my comps was unavailable from the storyline, but bying an epic mission worked for me. I just bought the cheapest and lowest lvl (120 i think it was, scavaging) and sent one of them away on that and cancelled the mission as someone suggested, and then I could send everyone out on missions after that. No greyed out button. Interesting bug among others.

This happened to me today, after Kaliyo was sent away for interrogation. Now two of the five remaining companions are greyed out.

Relogged. Repaired files. Control UU. Used an epic scavenging mission. Still can't use 2 out of 4 companions.

Anyone have any other suggestions?

Updated: now its down to one companion I can't use, Vector.

Adding myself to the list. I have submitted tickets and also called CS and have received no concrete answers or a solution to my problem. I was able to fix the problem on my higher level character with the dropped crafting mission, but then it bugged out on my level 14 knight. None of my skills are high enough for missions that I have found (highest skill is 36 in slicing). In addition, trying the mission on my higher level character didn't clear the bug. This is a very frustrating situation.
