Badge troubleshooting
by Lindy Klein - Friday, 24 May 2013, 10:24 AM

I know we're all getting keen on using badges, but here's a couple of tips for using them in your own course:

* if you want them to be assigned to your session participants automagically, don't enable the date restriction against any criteria you set.  It will add a delay until the day is finished!

* ticking off labels or opening resources are simple completion criteria to use ;)

* do be sure you activate the badge so its available for your eager badge hunters to collect!

Have fun, and happy badging!

Hi Lindy,

Thanks for the advice. Is there a way to set options for activity completion (eg must do 2 of the following 4 things)? I can only see options for 'any' or 'all' activities complete.

Thanks, Gordon.

Hi Gordon,

Unfortunately, there's no way to do this, but I've set up a discussion topic on it at

- feel free to jump on and discuss how/why this could work, and we can maybe encourage the developers to do it!

(Once they've had a chance to rest and celebrate the successful release of 2.5 of course :D)

All the best,
