How To Create A Custom Certificate

How Custom Certificates Work

AccessAlly Pro allows you to issue certificates of completion for your users upon completion of the course objectives. You can add autogenerated certificates through the use of a template and creating the settings in AccessAlly Pro.

With the certificate creation tool, you can customize your template to add the users name, sizing, and alignment amongst other offerings. With a simple drag and drop, you can place the content into your template into your preferred location.

The certificates can be issued on the full completion of the course (all objectives completed). The certificate will be available in a PDF download and can be easily added to your page through the use of shortcodes.

Users will be taken through your objectives you have offered (quiz, video watching, etc) and once they are fully completed, the certificate will be available for them to download and retain.

Important: Please export your certificate templates using “PDF 1.4”. This is the standard PDF format that is the most compatible, and you can create your templates using Word, Pages, Photoshop, or any other program that exports to PDF.Download the sample Certificates of Completion template PDFs here.

Showing a Certificate On Completion (Quiz or Otherwise)

If you only want people to be able to download their certificate after the pass a quiz or complete a section (that’s natural!), then follow these steps.

First create your page’s objectives – whether that’s passing the quiz on this page, or completing objectives on an overall course.

Then insert a shortcode:

Select “Objective Completion” to insert this shortcode onto the page.

Now inside that shortcode (your cursor will automatically be in the right place), insert the “Download Certificate” shortcode.

Now this section of the page will only show up after all of the objectives on this page are complete!
