I'm encountering an issue with badge visibility settings today. I'm going into previously hidden badges to select "Display on issuer and organization public pages." However, the change is not applied after I save it, and I do not see the badge on the...

HI, We are a multi-lingual institution, this implies that in the same subject we can have students who teach in the language they have chosen, English/Spanish/Catalan. The fact is that I see that the Badge is only monolingual, how could I manage to d...

Hi,The name and/or email would need to be changed by the issuer of the badge. They can revoke the badge, make the changes and then award again. Hope this helps.

We've noticed that when we try to award a badge, the day the badge states it is being awarded is defaulting to the previous day, instead of the current day it is being awarded. Any ideas? Heather

Thank you for this information. I had not dug enough into them to realize they were Open Badges with all that data. Definitely something to avoid at the moment. I like your suggestion too and will look into options for that as well.

Hi There!     Once you download the .CSV file and open it in whatever spreadsheet software you use, that's when you can filter by badge.  Apologies if that wasn't clear earlier!
