Incoming: New and Improved Badges!

Exciting news: Brand new badges are coming to you!

 

After not making any changes to the current badges for quite a while, we decided it was time to revamp our current badges as well as to add new ones. The updated design will ensure that there is more consistency across our Power Platform communities: Power BI, Flow, and Power Apps.

Besides having a sleeker appearance, the new badge design is more accessibility compliant, so that all community members can enjoy them. The numbers on the badges referring to a count have been made larger, so that it is now much easier to see how many Kudos you have given or received, how often you have replied, what your solution count is, etc.

 

Not only are we redesigning the existing badges, but we are also slowly, over the next few weeks, rolling out badges for higher activity counts, such as 1,000 Kudos received, and brand-new anniversary badges to reflect for how long you’ve been a member of our community. This means that you can earn even more badges now.

Whenever you unlock a new badge, you receive a notification. As we roll out new badges over the next few weeks, you may even earn badges based on your past community contributions! You will receive a notification for these, as well. Since we are releasing the redesigned and new badges in waves, you may receive multiple notifications, not just for brand new badges, but also for ones that you earned in the past too!

 

How do you like the redesign? Is there a badge that you are especially looking forward to earning?

Thank you for awarding me a new badge.  However, can you tell me what they are for?  This is the first time signing up to this community.  What are badges used for?

 

Thank you.

I think that the intent is to promote participation.  Just like 'likes' in social media.🦇

I love the badges and general gamification approach. Is it possible to build this type of badge tracker in PowerBI itself? I'd love to create something similar for internal trainings.
