Custom Badges

Hi everyone,

As part of our customer education, we offer local training sessions for our customers. To highlight their knowledge and create awareness and interest in the programs, I would like to add badges to the profiles of community members who have completed different courses.

  • Is the best way to do this through Role creation?
  • If through Role creation, can I set the lowest permissions possible for that additional role without effecting their current permissions?
  • Can I simply add a custom badge to a profile?

What are you doing in your communities?
Thank you,
Toby

Heya @Toby,

Yes, just tie the earning of the badge to a new role. Then you'll just have to manually assign the role to members, who will then instantly be awarded with the badge. 

I'm a little confused by your second question as unlike ranks, there's no "ordering" of roles. A member either qualifies to earn a role or they don't....

Hope that helps,

Jason

Thanks @JasonHill - appreciate the confirmation.
Regarding my 2nd question, I was referring to permissions assigned to roles - for example: 1 role could be member with little permissions and another is for a mod with more permissions.

Does that clarify?
Cheers,
Toby

No worries @Toby. Anything else is irrelevant. Eg just create a new role called Course1 , create a new badge that is only earned if you have the role Course1, then add to Course1 role to whatever member(s) you wish.

Strongly recommend you keep permissions separate. In other words, don't do roles with permissions for badges. Keep the badge roles "blank" and don't add any perms to them.

Thank you @lolagoetz - I am cloning an existing Role with very limited permissions. Cheers
