Podia’s community features come with lots of amazing features to help with member interaction and one of these is our badge system!

In this article:

What is the badge system?

Badges are a great way to build member interaction and engagement with your community area. They are automatically applied to members based on their permissions and account age.

This is a system that can increase member retention and also build trust between members of your community.

This is how badges currently look like:

What badges can members earn?

Depending on your members’ permissions and account age, we will attribute a specific badge next to their profile.

Account permission badges:



Account age badges:

Founder - The first 10 members to join your community area earn a Founder badge

New - Account age < 1 month

1 mo - Account age 1 month - 3 months

3 mo - Account age 3 months - 6 months

6 mo - Account age 6 months - 12 months

1 yr - Account age 1 year - 2 years

2 yr - Account age 2 years - 3 years

3 yr - Account age 3 years - 4 years


Can badges be edited?

Right now badges are not editable but we’re definitely looking forward to implementing this feature with upcoming community updates.

Can badges be assigned manually?

Badges are assigned automatically at this time, based on account permission and account age.

Can I remove a badge from showing next to a member profile?

At this time badges cannot be removed but we hope to add this feature with upcoming community updates.
