WORK IN PROGRESS
To set up badge criteria, navigate to "Criteria" tab and select a required option. Criteria are added one at a time with additional options available for each criteria.
For example, when a user selects "Manual issue by a role" requirement, they will be prompted to select which roles can award the badge and what rules apply to this requirement.
After criterion is set and added, it will be displayed among current badge criteria.
To edit a body and subject of a message which users get upon earning the badge, go to "Message" tab.
Among additional options here are "Attach badge to message" which allows adding an image file to an email and "Notify badge creator" selector which allows to set frequency of notifications sent to badge creator when this badge is issued to users.
"Recipients" tab displays a list of users who have already earned this badges.
- Once all criteria are set and badge creator is happy with badge details and settings, site users can start earning it. For users to be able to earn a badge, a badge creator/administrator needs to enable access to this badge on a badge overview page or "Manage badges" page (as shown on the picture).
- Normally badges are awarded to users automatically based on their actions in the system. The completion criteria of an active badge are re-calculated every time an event such as completion of a course or activity, or updating user profile happens. If a user has completed all necessary requirements they are issued a badge and sent an email notification.
Only badges with enabled access are available to users and can be earned!
Badges that have manual award among their criteria can be issued by one user to another. Users who issue a badge must have "moodle/badges:awardbadge" capability. Site administrators can choose their role when issuing a badge.
Important Note: Currently once a badge has been issued it cannot be revoked. So make sure that you are giving a badge to the correct users.
