Does AU card need activation for it to report?

QuestionsDoes AU card need activation for it to report?
asked 2 years ago

To help out a friend in his rebuild, I added him as an AU to my oldest BofA CC.  I received his card recently.  He will not actually be using it, so I am wondering if I even need to activate it for it to show on his credit report.  I know it can sometimes be a bit of a crapshoot with AUs in terms of reporting regardless.  Just wondering if actually activating the card is necessary.
