Badges are another new feature with SharePoint 2013. You can create new badges representing special achievements on your site, and you or your moderators can award badges to users for special achievements on the site. Badges are a form of gamification, which refers to using game-style mechanics and awards in a non–game-playing scenario.

One such example is Microsoft’s own SharePoint MVP certification, which is granted to SharePoint pioneers within the Internet community, based upon the breadth and depth of their SharePoint support and evangelism.

Badges, when used properly, also help users within large communities to lend credibility to a particular reply. When a user who is assigned a badge named SharePoint Guru replies to a discussion, other users attach additional credibility to the response because the badge indicates that it was authored by a Guru.

You (and your moderators) should make judicious use of badges; if you award badges in a capricious fashion, you devalue the badge and the perception of content authored by all users who have this badge assigned to them.

Create badges

  1. On the Home page of your site, In the Community Tools section, click the Create Badges link.

Tip

Badges are intended to represent positive achievements so that users can strive for particular goals. Avoid creating badges to represent negative actions. There are other methods (such as discussion moderation) for dealing with policy violations.

Tip

The badges that you create should be named in a way that describes the achievement in a positive light and makes the badge attractive to your community. Given the choice between badges named “Writes a Lot” and “Content Superstar,” you should choose the more exciting option.

Edit a badge

  1. On the Badges page, select a badge by clicking to the immediate left of the badge name.

  2. On the ribbon, click the Items tab and then, in the Manage group, click the Edit Item button.
