Sparks are added under: Admins Tools --> Merits --> Badges --> Some Badge --> Badge Sparks.
A Spark is a way to automatically grant a badge to someone based on a particular criteria. In other words, you can apply a badge to a user's profile automatically when the user meets any one of the following criteria:
- Completes a specific Module
- Reaches a certain number of Points
- Attends a particular Event
- Reaches a certain number of User Contributions
- Has logged in a certain number of times
