Click on the Certificate tab on the left-hand side.
Change the Award certificate on completion toggle switch to on.
Select the Certificate Style, choosing between Graphical or Letter.
If required, select the Certificate Expiry. You can select a relative or specific date. Otherwise, select Does not expire.
You can choose to customise the certificate with a Certificate Message, using custom fields to auto-populate key information.
To preview your certificate, click Save and then Preview Certificate.
A popup window will display the preview (your site branding will dictate how it looks so it may appear different to the screenshots in this guide).
This is an example of the Graphical certificate style (the highlight window shows the custom text from the Certificate Message field):
This is an example of the Letter certificate style (only the custom text will be included in the this style certificate):
If the preview displays correctly, you do not need to do anything else and the Certificate will now be awarded to users when they complete the activity. Users will be able to view, download and/or print it from their Profile information. If you need to make any changes, remember to click Save again when you are finished.
Override the Certificate expiry date
Line Managers, Administrators and Content Creators can manually override a Certificate expiry for specific Users. Navigate to the Users tab of the activity, tick the checkbox next to the User's name from the list, then from the Actions drop down choose to either extend or reduce the expiry date.
You can override the certificate expiry date for multiple users at the same time. If you select more than one User you will be presented with the following popup.
You can set Email Reminders based on Certificate Expiry. See the Set up Email Reminders guide for more information.
