- What is BadgeFarm?
- IdeaScale provides an easy way for your organization to leverage gamification to reward and increase user participation in all of your communities. With the gamification platform, users accrue experience based on their activity within your community and are awarded badges and rewards according to the amount of experience they earn performing tasks at the workplace. Honoring badge winners within your organization is up to you, but most often, members will be motivated by the badge alone.
- Is there an option for Custom Badges?
- IdeaScale custom badges are available to our Enterprise customers. Upon request, we will work with you to create unique badges for your community.
- Can I change the look and feel of the Badges?
- Our creative design team has constructed badge sets that convey meaning at-a-glance. Your community members, moderators, admins, and analysts will quickly learn the colors, shapes, & symbols, benefiting from our ever-expanding collection of badges. While we do not allow customers to change the look and feel of our badges, we do provide a custom badge option available to our BadgeFarm Enterprise customers.
