Community Badges

Badges are a fun way to recognize and reward your contributions to the Community. Starting in 2018, we rolled out Phase 1, rewarding community members with badges for submitting new posts, responses, accepted solutions, and for giving and earing Likes. In 2019, Phase 2 will be launched along with the new Community look, all badges will be retoractively rewarded so all of your past activities will be accounted for. Moving forward you can expect to see new series of badges as well and individual badges to reward for activities such as contributing ideas, starting a conversation, or posting a new topic during an Online Expert Day. Stay tuned for upcoming announcements!

All activities you contribute to the Community are automatically calculated and will be prominately displayed on your profile page for other members of the community to recognize the contributions you make to the community.
