Hi Jess — Thanks for your message. If what you have now works, I say stick with it. For now, the backpack is still an ok place for your earners to put their badges if they need to put their badges somewhere. Many badge issuing platforms provide profile pages for their badge earners and from there give them the capability to share their badges online as links (FB, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc…). That’s essentially what the backpack provides — user profiles where badge earners can store, arrange and share collections of their badges. If that can be done on the platform where your badges are issued, they don’t need to go to the backpack.
