Hi all,

 

We are super excited to announce the introduction of badges on the MYOB Community.

 

Badges are a fun new way to reward you for being an awesome member of the MYOB community.  And if you’re an MYOB expert, badges make it really easy for others to spot you. 

 

Here’s four of 60+ badges that are up for grabs:

You can also earn special badges for being the Top Contributor and Problem Solver for each month.

We even have some exclusive badges for our VIP members:

Where can I see all my badges?

Simply go to your Profile page to see your top five badges and if you have more, click the ‘+ more’ link to view the All Badges page.

 

What do the badges mean?

When in the All Badges page, you can click a badge to see what you’ve been rewarded for.

 

Can I see badges earned by others?

Of course, you can! Simply hover over their user name to see their most valuable badges.

Or go to their All Badges page to see them all. For example check out Ron's (@ronatbas) impressive trophy case!

 

How will I find out when I earn a new badge?

We‘ll keep you in the know! You’ll get an email with all the details and we’ll also see this in your Notifications.

 

What does ‘Earned by 21’ mean?

It means that there are 21 people who've earned this badge. The lower the number the more exclusive it is!

 

Can I suggest some ideas for badges?

Yes please! Simply post it as a comment in here or send me a private message with your suggestions.

What a waste of time and resources. This is not social media or a game. It's a business platform.

Hi @HeatherDBS,


Thank you for your feedback.


Badging was recently introduced to our forum for many different reasons.


It's a way of encouraging and rewarding participation on the forum and making it easier for members to track their journey, and show off their achievements.


More importantly, it helps the community to easily identify the experts on our forum.

 

Our community forum has always been and will continue to be a great resource for users of MYOB software and services. Please rest assured that the introduction of badging will in no way impact the help clients receive from this channel.


That said, we understand that it's not for everyone and appreciate your honest feedback.


We are always looking for ways to improve user experience on our forum. So please do let me know if you have any suggestions.

 

Regards,

Suja

I couldn't agree more with the comment above ' What a waste of time and resources. This is not social media or a game. It's a business platform.'

 

We recently converted from Xero to MYOB for the stock functionality and job costing, but I am after realising that any efficiencies gained in that area are negated in so many other ways as the software is no where near as intelligent as Xero's and there are so may extra steps needed to do tasks that are so simple in Xero.

 

Clearly the focus should be on software improvement and efficiency for users over something like this.
