First of June to second of July? You are promoting this well in advance!

 

*sigh* I know I have to translate the date format.

Hmm - 7 February deadline huh? This looks doable and I do need another badge.

Hi @Peter Jessen , thank you for all your great contributions so far in the Jira Align collection! We will always consider you the original early advocate in our hearts based on your extensive contributions, but for the purposes of this particular badge challenge, the requirements must be met within the specified timeframe:

Between 1/6/2020 and 2/7/2020, you will have the opportunity to earn this special badge

I hate to be a stickler, but rules are rules and regardless of how much I plead with them, the community overlords don't allow for exceptions when it comes to badge-earning. Anyhoo, based on your existing track record, I have complete faith that you'll be able to earn this in no time at all!

Hi @Mandy Ross

I missed the timeframe sentence, probably because I'm on vacation in Cancun and was enjoying a rum and Coke while reading and replying to your post.

Cheers,
Peter

Hi @Mandy Ross - I think I'm number 2. Here's my LinkedIn post - https://www.linkedin.com/posts/peterjessen_jira-and-jira-align-integration-issue-story-activity-6620355957413203968-Zgv8. I attribute my tardiness to @Jodi LeBlanc's speed and my vacation slow down. :-)

I started working on this badge and I feel a bit intimidated.

Jira Align is an enterprise product on a scale I have limited exposure to. In NZ we talk of large enterprises as those with over one hundred employees with more than 99% of NZ enterprises being smaller than this size. 

I have shared a discussion on Linked In and will continue to make comments and posts where I can interact authentically. I have a couple more weeks to explore. :)

@Mirek the objective of social shares is to bring in more visitors to the collection who may not have ever been to the Community before. so if you can come up with something that meets that goal (email an article to people? something like that), I'm good with it!

@Kat Warner {TechTime} thanks for getting to know Jira Align! It is a pretty big system meant for companies over 500 pp, so it takes awhile to get used to what it's all about. We appreciate your efforts!

@Kat Warner {TechTime} : Chapeau 🎩 to you for simultaneously making me laugh (the calendar dates joke) and think seriously (NZ Enterprise facts!) You're so awesome! ✨👏
