Badges are a way for users to be recognized for their contributions to the community. Some may be earned through specific actions in the community. Other badges can be awarded by users for actions that merit recognition.
If badges are enabled in your community, you will be able to see a list of all the badges you have earned and been awarded.
The same page is also available on your profile page. Open your profile and click the Badges tab.
The Badges earned tab shows all the badges you've earned and been awarded.
Click on a badge to see the badge summary and when you earned it. The summary includes the badge name, a short description of what the badge is about, the date you earned it or were awarded it and, if awarded, who awarded it to you. From there you can click View details to see the full detail page for the badge (see the Earning Badges section below) or click to view the wall post from when you got the badge, to see what others have said about it.
The Available to earn tab shows all the badges left that you can earn. Click View details to open the full detail page on how to earn the badge and who has already earned it.
Badges can be earned by performing specific challenges in the community. These are set up by badge and can vary by community. To find out what badges are available to earn, check out the Available to earn tab in Badges. Click View details for any badge and you'll see a full description of the badge, if you've ever earned it before, and the steps to earn it. If you've completed any of the steps you'll see that there too. Lastly you can see on that page if any other users have already earned it, to spur you on to greatness.
When you complete all the steps required to earn a badge you'll be notified. Depending on the settings for the badge, that notification may just go to you and your friends. If it's a "big deal" then it will be published on My Activity Stream , to celebrate in your contributions and provide kudos for your accomplishments. You can click on the badge in the wall post to open the full detail page, showing again who has earned this badge and how you too can earn it.
Some badges can be awarded to users in personal recognition for their contribution to the community. To find out what badges you can award to another, visit their profile and click the Badges tab in the left menu.
Like with your personal badge summary, the Badges earned tab shows all the badges they have earned or been awarded. You can click on any of those for more detail and to go to the wall posts about their receiving those badges to provide them kudos.
The Available to award tab is where you'll find badges you can award the user (if any).
Click Award to open a panel to enter a message to accompany your award and then click Award again to send it. Depending on the badge, a wall post will either be shared with the recipient, their friends and you, or everyone in your community. Your message will be the first comment on the wall post, so everyone will know what the user did to deserve this recognition.
Note: Some badges may be configured so that they can only be earned or awarded to a user once.
To remove a badge, visit the person's profile and click the Badges tab in the left menu. Click on the badge then click Remove.
Check out Control Panel > People > Badges to learn how to create and manage badges.
