Hello Community!

Welcome to today's edition of THE BUZZ.



In this edition, you'll find:

  • Upcoming Events
  • Job Listings
  • A new Community Badge
  • And more!


Often times, when you create a topic on the Blackbaud Community, you can get several answers from fellow community members. With so many answers, we want to recognize the responses that lead to a resolution. Allow us to introduce to you the Acknowledger Badge!

With 5 different levels to the new Acknowledger Badge, the more you mark the best answers to your questions, the higher rank you will achieve.

Hey, isn't that awesome??

In my daily search of the internet for all things positive, I found a great story about the legendary Alex Trebek. Trebek, the long-time host of the popular tv game show Jeopardy! recently passed away after a long fight with pancreatic cancer. But even in death, Alex is making a difference. Well, in this case, his wardrobe is. A portion of Alex's suits from the show have been given to “under-served Americans” coping with addiction, homelessness, and a history of incarceration. His family made the donation of the suits with the idea to help them in the interview process as the look for new jobs. Read all about it and post inspirational stories that you've come across here: https://community.blackbaud.com/forums/viewtopic/526/53916

Awesome incentive re: answering questions that have gone unanswered. Cool new badge, too!
Love the new badge!

So, has the "Best Answer" option been deployed yet? I cleared my browser cache and reloaded pages but I never see that option. ?

Edit - Nevermind, I'm being a dufuss. I was hoping we could help the OP by marking items as best answer, but these options only show up on our own posts. 
what is the easiest way to find your posts?
I figured it out - via filter on post area 
Nice job team 
Great!!
