Advanced methods and review options
EndorsementsIn Open Badge Factory, user organisations can endorse each other to recognise and make visible the values and goals they share. By endorsing each other’s badges, organisations can also build the groundwork for a badge ecosystem. When badges are endorsed by a network of organisations, it increases their value for their issuers, holders, and the whole community.
Bulk badge endorsementsWith the bulk badge endorsement feature, You can send multiple badge endorsement requests to your internal partners or external organisations.
Multilingual badgesA multilingual badge is a badge containing information in several languages. By clicking a link, badge viewers can switch from one version to another.
Badge sharingOpen Badge Factory’s user organisations can partner with each other to share their badges and badge applications. The standard feature means that you can share badges one at the time as a copy or a link. The advanced feature means that you can share at the same time several badges and badges applications with their forms and settings as copies or links. To receive badge applications shared by your partners in your account, you need to have Pro level.✅🚀
Statistics and report featuresThe standard report function provides detailed statistics and views about the badges and badge applications you have created and issued. At Pro level, you can generate advanced reports with the Report Builder tool, and export your reports as CVS files that you can read with spreadsheet software. You can also get a visual report about social media shares done by your badge recipients.✅🚀
TemplatesYou can create message templates for badge recipients, criteria page templates, and badge application form templates. Using templates makes the creation of badges and badge applications more effective, and helps badge creators to write their badges with the same style.
Milestone badgesA milestone badge is a way to support learning pathways with badges. It contains “small” badges and a “big” badge which is automatically delivered when all, or some of the small badges, have been earned by the badge recipient.

Quiz on badge applicationReviewing a badge application can take time if the form contains a lot of information. To facilitate the analysis by the examiners, you have the possibility of transforming your “radio buttons” and “checkboxes” fields to configure the correct answer(s). The examiner will thus be able to consult the score obtained and decide on the issue of the badge.

At the pro level, you can automate the issuing of badges based on the score on the “Automatic” and “With code” methods.

Multistep assessment (peers, jury etc.)With the “multistep assessment” method, the badge is issued after the application has been assessed by a panel of reviewers. Possibility to entrust them with the decision or only to have their opinion.
Management of badge and badge application user rightsBy default, users assigned to admin or creator roles can edit all badges in your account, and users assigned to issuer roles can issue any of them. This advanced feature allows badge creators to set up individual or group level restrictions on who can edit or issue a badge, and who can edit or review a badge application.
PDF badgesOne of Pro level’s most appealing features is the PDF badge, which makes the reception and utilisation of badges easy for badge recipients if they do not wish to create an account in Open Badge Passport (or in a badge backpack) to receive and use their badges. PDF badges contain the same information as “normal” standard Open Badges, as well as a link and a QR code for validation. PDF badges are often used as digital certificates by training companies and companies offering customer or partner training programs.

You also have the option of creating your own PDF branded badge templates.
Integration with ESCO competency frameworkAt Premium level, you can set up manual alignments (pointers to competency frameworks) and add them to your badges to increase their value. At Pro level, you have access to ESCO (the multilingual classification of European Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations). You can browse the ESCO database in your badge editor and add competency descriptions to your badges.
Send badge issuing emails from your own SMTP serverThis feature is useful if you want that your badges are issued from your own mail server and domain.
