- Select the badge you want to add to your backpack and click on the download icon
- The badge will now download
- You will need to access your external backpack (program/application) to be able to add the badge. (your backpack email address must be the same as your Totara platform one)
- You will then need to follow the instructions on your backpack site to add the badges.
