Group Hug challenge badge now live!

We have a new challenge badge launching today: time for a Group Hug!

Super Grouper@2x.png

To earn this badge, be a member of at least three of our groups and participate in at least one of them on an ongoing basis. (Or participate in all three, a little bit each. All your group posts count towards this badge.) 

Note: If you're already in 3 groups, those count towards the badge! To check, look at the Groups tab on your profile.

Also, under the Group Description, you can manage your notifications for the groups you're in -- by default, you'll be watching the content in the groups you join.

If you have any other questions, let me know.  And enjoy our groups!

Oooh - mysterious badge earning requirements. 


@Monique vdB Please confirm any groups we have joined before today count towards "join at least three of our groups".

@Monique vdB 

I have joined 13 groups before, what else do I need to do to get this badge?

By the way, how can I create a group that belongs to china or shanghai users, similar to Ho Chi Minh City.

Hi @Ollie Guan the groups you're in will count! You just need to participate in groups (by posting) over time and then you will get the badge. 

You can email me and I'll give you the info on how to request a group for your city! mvandenberg at atlassian dot com. :)

Hello all, I'm part of 8 groups and it's amazing, all that interaction on different topics in different fields :)

I'm a big hugger!

Hello @Monique vdB 

That's great I am already in 4 groups, and participating in those. So what else needs to be done to earn this badge

Hi @Monique vdB !

I have completed the Group Hug challenge!

Please assign me the badge.

Hi @Monique vdB !


I think I've completed this challenge as I'm participating in a few groups already 🙂


Have a nice day !



Daniel Ebers Community Leader Feb 10, 2021

Hi @Monique vdB

like Alexis said - this is also one that I am puzzled about the most :) Not trying to be spammy I see it as a challenge but the Group hug is a pretty decent riddle.
Are there any hints available? =) Or some trick I don't see?


Monique vdB Community Manager Feb 10, 2021

@Daniel Ebers @Alexis Robert I'm guessing the problem may be the group join action. You may need to leave and rejoin your groups for this to trigger. If you try and it still doesn't work, let me know!

Hi @Monique vdB 

It's still not working for me! I have left the group and joined again but I haven't received any badge!

Alexis Robert Community Leader Mar 24, 2021

Hi @Monique vdB ,


I have tried leaving and joining again the groups, but it's still not showing for me.

Any ideas on how to fix this ? 


Thanks !

G subramanyam Community Leader May 03, 2021

Seems like I also need this badge to be enabled. @Monique vdBcould you look into this please.

Hi @Monique vdB 

 I hope you are well !


I guess (as someone refer earlier) i fulfilled the Requirements for this badge, can you please check it?


PS:  Can I  request a group for my city ?

for me to get this badge, I have to join 3 more groups I think

anyway I found all the groups are having good info to learn and enjoying being part of this groups
