Everything You Need to Know about 'Badges'!


The badge feature allows the administrator to award and recognize users who actively participate and contribute in a WebStorm.  Please note, this is a beta feature, please contact your Brightidea representative to have it enabled.

  • Navigate to WebStorm Setup --> Users --> Groups
  • Type in a team name (team name should be indicative of badge name) and click on "Create Team". 
  • Navigate to the "Badges" sub-tab and click on "Add New". 
  • The administrator will now need to upload the badge
    • Give the badge a name
    • Upload small image (16x16 or smaller) and a large image (.jpg & .gif seem to work best
    • Provide description if wanted
    • Click “Create Badge”
  • Navigate back to the "Groups" sub-tab.
    • Select a Team (Group)
    • Click on the pencil icon next to group name
    • Select badge from drop-down menu.
    • Add individual members who should have this badge as part of their profile.
    • Repeat for all necessary badges.
    • Note: Users can have multiple badges by being added to multiple badge groups.


  • Badges will be display on the user profile page under the badged widget:
  • The user can also select their assigned badge under their profile settings. This will replace their user icon with the badge icon throughout the entire system.



  • User badges will also be displayed on the Leaderboard page:
  • The administrator can also manage badge groups in Enterprise Setup.
  • Navigate to Enterprise Setup --> Users --> Groups
  • The administrator has the ability to add / remove users from the groups and delete / rename the groups.
  • In Enterprise Setup, the admin can also use group import to mass import many users into a badge group all at once.
  • Click here for more information on group import.

    I do not get the Badge option when creating teams in my webstorm. Is there another setting I need to switch on for that option to appear? I cannot find where to add badges.

    Hi Cynthia,

    This badge feature is an old beta feature that has since been deprecated on most of our sites. If it's needed, we can enable it for you but it's very limited in scope and no longer supported.

    Please let me know if you have any further questions on this topic.

    Thank you,
    Brightidea Support

    Hi Roc,

    This functionality has been deprecated at this point, I would not recommend using it as it's no longer supported. It also doesn't display on any of the newer pages/features released in the past few years.

    If you'd still like for me to enable it, please let me know.
