Activate & Customize the Badge Reward System


How does it work?

The badge reward system is an optional feature offered on the virtual mentoring platform to engage mentors and mentees. It can be activated or de-activated based on the needs of your program. It is not fully customizable, however, you can change a few things such as the badge's image and description. However, it is not possible to change the action that attributes the badge

For instance, one of the built-in badge is called "Commencement" and is attributed when mentors and mentees complete their profile at 100%.  You can change the image of the badge and the description. Yet, it cannot be assigned for any other reasons than the action of completing a profile at 100%.

Once earned, badges and points are displayed on the mentor and mentee's profile.
