Sharing a Badge

There are several ways to share a Badgr badge. Share links can be added to documents or websites as a hyperlink and they allow anyone with the link to view a page with information about your badge. Embed codes display the badge image, name, and some other badge details within a web page. Viewers can also click the embed to view the same public page with badge details as the "share" link option. You can also download the badge .PNG and then add it as a regular image to documents or email signatures.

  1. From the Backpack tab in Badgr, click Share in the bottom-right corner of the badge's tile.
