I was just awarded a badge, proceeded to click it on the achievements section, and selected the option to open within the app:

But it did not display the outcome within the app, and redirected me to my Browser instead:

I wonder what could have caused this behavior? This was confusing to me because the option to open within app was given and I expected it to display the result in the app.

Any clues here? I suppose this could be by-design, but in that case shouldn't the option to open in app be removed?

  • App Version: 1.0.95
  • Device Manufacturer: HUAWEI
  • Device Model: HUAWEI VNS-L23
  • OS Version: 6.0 (C45B130)

Update: Just tried again (the next day) and still same result. I have no default Browser selected in my phone.

Also, if I let the redirection to take place it takes me to: https://workplace.stackexchange.com/users/73791/darkcygnus?tag=badges , which I happened to noticed is the same as https://workplace.stackexchange.com/users/73791/darkcygnus?tab=topactivity

  • Is your default action(open with browser or app) set? Can you try to reproduce this and check if it continues? It sometimes happens to me when the network is not stable. – ABcDexter Oct 31 '17 at 7:09

    Yes, it happens every time I click it. I don't have a default Browser, so every time it asks me where to open (same case when clicking SE questions on my browser, it asks me if I want on app or not) – DarkCygnus Oct 31 '17 at 13:34
  • Yep, just did it again now and same thing – DarkCygnus Oct 31 '17 at 13:35
  • This links to the Help Center as far as I can tell, and since the android app has no Help Center, it shows that message. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask V2 Oct 31 '17 at 13:59
  • @ShadowWizard If I let the redirection to my Browser to happen, it takes me to: workplace.stackexchange.com/users/73791/darkcygnus?tag=badges – DarkCygnus Oct 31 '17 at 15:23
  • @DarkCygnus oh. Well, the app also doesn't have a real user profile. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask V2 Oct 31 '17 at 16:22
