Badges & trophies on LinkedIn

When posting my earned badges or trophies on LinkedIn, only the link to the course is posted, not the badge. Can this be solved?

I thing now it is not possible to share the Badge/trophy's that we achieve after completing the self-paced learning on MS learn. Only certification and proctored exams can be shared publicly.

I actually think it would be nice and motivational to be able to share achievements. This would allow me to engage with other professionals within my LinkedIn network that may have more experience than me on Microsoft tools or to start a conversation about Microsoft tools. Please look into it.

Hi

I'm not sure it was the Learn philosophy to share all badges and trophies on websites / linkedin. Actually, i have more than 20 trophies and a LOT of badges on the platform, and don't want to collect that.

This success is personal, and no "exam" are asked for validated knowledge. If you want badges like a proof of skills, please see certifications section. After an exam, Microsoft proposes to share this success with communities.

Hi Joffrey,
thanks for your reply. Indeed, I'm also looking after certification as 'proof'. However, it's strange that you are asked to share your achievement on social media and if you do so, only the link to the course is posted.

You can post a link to your achievements on LinkedIn using a link like this:-

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/users//

It doesn't display very well on the LinkedIn profile though (for example, it doesn't show any graphical image associated with it) so a combination of that and individually listing those on your profile seems the best approach - and as Joffrey has said, once you've successfully completed Microsoft Exams then the badges can be shown on LinkedIn, etc.
