As an engaged member of the Anaplan Community, you deserve to be rewarded and recognized. After all, you help make the Community flourish. Badges are a visual representation of your dedication and commitment to making the Community a valuable resource to Anaplanners everywhere. Be proud—you’ve earned it! To show our appreciation, we have updated our current badges and are bringing you new and exciting ways to earn more!

Have we piqued your interest? Here’s what’s coming your way.

First, we have redesigned our current badges to give them a fresh, new look. Keep up the excellent work by posting, commenting, replying, and giving kudos—and watch new badges roll in on a regular basis!

Next, if you are a Group Leader, we have created an icon that will display to the right of your name, to show off your commendable leader status. If you are a Group Member, we have a whole new badge for you— coming your way in just a few short weeks.  

Lastly, we want to recognize members for their longevity within the Community. We are introducing Anniversary badges for one, three, five, and ten years. If you've been a member of Community for one year or more, you may have already received one or more of the new anniversary badges, as they are retroactive. Congratulations! Can you believe we will be giving over 20,000 one-year anniversary badges? Over 5,000 will receive a three-year, and over 500 will receive a five-year anniversary badge. Who will be the first to receive the coveted ten-year badge?

But wait … there’s more! These badges are just for the month of July. We will have new badges coming your way every month. Next month, we will have Academy badges and even more in the following months, so be sure to stay tuned and keep an eye out for all the new badges.  

Where do you find all of those hard-earned badges? Great question!

@HannahT what an awesome upgrade!

I've been a community member for 3-4 years but I started under a different alias. Would it be possible to get credit for my previous contributions? Old Alias is @jdolich.

Also, I don't see the grayed out badges for the annual achievements and the group leader. I didn't get credit for either.

Great new look! Thank you for the upgrade!

Unfortunately we are unable to merge two accounts and because the anniversary badges are tied to, time since registration, we are unable to release the badge to you manually. 

As for the grayed out badges, thank you for pointing this out, we are digging into it and working on fixing the issue. The reason you didn't receive the Group Leader icon is because it's on a hierarchy system. Since you have the Master Anaplanner/Community Boss icon and the Partner icon, those both outrank the Group Leader icon, therefore it will not appear.

Glad you like the new and thank you for being so active in the Community 🙂

@piyushjain0509 If you click on your profile picture, your latest badges will appear underneath.  There is a > to the right - That will display all of your badges plus all possible badges
