Site Members: Automatically Assigning Badges to Site Members

2 min read
Automations allow you to focus on the bigger picture by taking care of smaller tasks for you. Using Wix Automations, you can automatically assign badges to your members when a certain event takes place.

For example, you could automatically assign a "Certified Superstar" badge to a member who has completed an online program. 

Badges are a great way to encourage member participation as you reward members for reaching certain milestones.
Before you begin:
To automatically assign a badge to someone, they must be a member of your site before the automation trigger (e.g. the completion of an online program) takes place.
