What do badge groups and groupings do?

(Christopher Heald) #1

Continuing the discussion from Badge Groupings:

I have been adding to our badges, and I wanted to know what the badge groups/groupings do.

I can’t find a way to isolate badges by group, I don’t know what benefit there is to being able to sort the order of badge groups, and I’m not sure I want to find out what clicking on the ‘x’ in the badge group modal does by clicking on it :wink: Does the ‘x’ delete the group, or the group and its badges?

Move it up, move it down, remove the grouping.

Where, aside from within the badge admin interface, are badge groupings shown or used? I don’t see them referenced on profiles or in the badges list. The only place I see them is within the badge admin detail. It seems like a sizeable amount of work went into this for very little outward manifestation.

I’m trying to figure out whether to use badge groupings. And to help me decide, I’m trying to figure out what purpose - current and future - the groups serve.

They’re used in the /badges page to order the badges.
