FAQ - Community Badges

Community Badges

Badges are a fun way to recognize and reward your contributions to the Communities.

Starting 2018, in phase 1, our community members will earn badges for submitting new posts, responses or accepted solutions, and giving and earing Kudos. Soon we’ll launch phase 2 and you can expect to see more new badges rolled-out, rewarding you for activities such as contributing ideas or starting a conversation and posting a new topic during an Online Expert Day. Stay tuned for upcoming announcements!

All these activities on the Community will be automatically calculated and you will be rewarded badges as you continue to participate in the Community. Badges earned will be prominently displayed on your profile page for other members to see the contributions you make to the community.

Of course, all badges are retroactive, i.e. for current Community members, all past activities will be accounted for in badges.

How will they appear on your profile?

With the introduction of our set of badges, the most recently earned badges are displaying on your profile page, your latest one first. All badges you have earned-to-date, as well as others you have not yet earned, will be displayed when you click the arrow next to your latest badges earned. Some badges that are not relevant to all will only appear once you have earned them.

Earned badges will show the badge icon, title, date earned and how many members have unlocked the badge. Simply hover over a badge, and the description for that badge will display.

How will I know when I earn a badge?

You will be notified automatically via email to congratulate you on earning a new badge. Remember, you can change the frequency of these (and other) notifications, by navigating to your settings under 'My Subscriptions', then to 'Notification Settings'. 

As always, we look forward to hearing your thoughts!

Thank you for participating in the Communities!
