    We are releasing one patch at a time to make sure there is no issues for all the badge earners. If you have not receive it yet, I would say you will receive the link to accept your badge by next Friday (08/04/2023) the latest.

  • @BoL Woohoo just got my badge today. It's awesome but have one feedback. It says I earned the badge back in 2017 when I only got my certification last year. When I got it is less an issue than when it is expiring which is the end of this year.

  • Great to have this available to allow for greater recognition of Anaplan knowledge across the industry. Thanks for getting this setup @BoL

  • BoL


    When you are accepting the badge, there is a part where you can change that. See SC below for your reference.

  • @BoL unfortunately I didn't get an option to update the dates when I accepted it. I only accepted it a few minutes ago after reading your reply. Are you able to assist getting the dates sorted? I'm guessing this badge will expire by December otherwise

  • BoL

    @TristanS I think it gives you the option once you put it on Linkedin.

    All 2023 badges expire on December 2023.

    2024 badge will be issued next year once person complete the recertification requirement for FY24.

  • @BoL Got it … Thanks

  • This is great! Still figuring out how to get mine and when does it expire? Any recertification criteria?
