unable to transfer qualification badge to Mozilla backpack

Hi, I've just passed my business analyst qualification exam and was rewarded with the badge. However, when I attempt to transfer this badge onto Moizzila backpack in order to link it to my LinkedIn profile I'm unable to do so.  

I've already created and verified my email on Mozzila Backpack but when I attempt to set a connection from the Backpack settings in Qlik I get the error "cannot send verification email". If I return to the page it shows "status: verification pending", but this has been pending for well over two hours now. I've tried to search the web for a solution but could not find one. Thanks

After 5 days of stressing and no response from staff, I've found a solution in order to help others facing the same issue. The problem is that Mozzila backpack has shut down (almost a year ago)and the platform was integrated into Badgr. You'll need to create an account on Badgr.com using the same email address you used when signing up for the Qlik continuos classroom, otherwise it will not upload the badge.

After that, you'll need to download the badge from Qlik onto your computer, then upload it onto Badgr. Hope this helps

Hello,

Recently I received my Qlik Data Architect certificate from certification@qlik.com and I have a question on how I can add this to my LinkedIn profile or Acclaim.

 
I reviewed  similar issues on the Qlik community for help but not possible for me because I took this certification through other study platform and not the continuous classroom ( which I suppose the badge is issue via this). I created a local account on this continuous classroom long before my preparation for course content but I still can’t find any badge attached to it on the section >my badges 
 
Is there no other way for private takers to get a  URL link to this certification or a badge ? All I received so far is a PDF and Logo of the certificate via certification@qlik.com. 

Secondly, I tried accessing this achievement via my Acclaim account and it seems completely impossible to add this to my profile on Acclaim either.

what can I do to get this right. 

Thank you and looking forward for to hear from you

Hello Nick,

Congratulations on passing the Qlik Sense Data Architect Certification Exam.

The certification exams have downloadable logos for you to use in your email signature or on your business card. We do not use the Acclaim badging platform or have a mechanism to add a badge to linked in. (The qualification exams have badges, which was what was discussed in Qlik Community.)

For an overview of the difference between Certification & Qualification, please visit the web page on qlik.com. This is the official source of preparation resources for our high stakes exams.

Please email certification@qlik.com is you have additional questions.
