Did you know that DesignSpark members can earn badges and gain XP points to proudly display on their member's profile pages? There are badges for posting articles, asking questions, publish projects etc. and you can also earn special badges like the ones that were on offer at the Makerfaire and Hackaday events.
You will get given a badge when you fulfil the requirements required to earn one, however, sometimes, if we are at a Makerfaire event you can get special badge codes from us on the day, like the ‘Pete and Greet’ Badge.
Right, you’ve got your new badge codes, how do you go about turning them into badges to display on your profile page on DesignSpark? You can use the website of course, but, how do you redeem those codes when using the DesignSpark Toolbox App?
Don’t forget you also get a code for a badge just for downloading the Toolbox App itself!
There’s a couple of ways doing this:
How to redeem badge codes, route 1
Where it say’s ‘Community’ on the bottom bar, press that.
At the top right corner press ‘Badges’
Enter your code.
If you aren’t logged in to DesignSpark you will be asked to log in next, or create a new account if you are not a member. Follow the instructions and it's all plain sailing!
Route 2, Just a tiny bit different…not much!
Press on the DesignSpark icon on the bottom bar.
Press ‘Redeem your badge code’
On this app page, you will also find the badge code for the Toolbox App, a head-start in building your badge collection of badges courtesy of DesignSpark! Enter the code and press 'Redeem'
If you aren’t logged in to DesignSpark you will be asked to log in next, or create a new account if you are not a member. It’s as easy as that!
That’s it! That’s all you have to do to redeem those eagerly gathered badge codes and to grow your ranking on DesignSpark!
