Event Certificates

Automatically generate event attendance certificates from the events module when a person is marked as attended.

This functionality is an optional feature and allows you to have a custom branded event certificate to suit your membership organisation automatically generated at the end of an event. If you can't see the certificates tab and are interested in this feature please contact us. 

Setting up Certificates

To set up event certificates on your site, go to the events module, click on edit next the event you wish to administer and navigate to the "Certificate" tab. Event certificates can be issued for ticketed or registration only events. 

Note: Certificates will only be issued to the purchaser or the registrant, consider setting the maximum of tickets that can be purchased in 1 transaction to be 1.

Event certificates can be designed with a custom branded background and auto-populate information from the event, with the ability for you to customise the Title and Footer per event. Change the radio button to "Yes" to turn on certificates and input the certificate Title and Footer and click "Save".  


Once you have saved the certificate details for the first time, you will see a preview of the certificate generated at the bottom of the screen. You can edit the Title and Footer as required and click Save to see a new preview.

Click "Download a Preview Certificate PDF" for an accurate preview, as the onscreen preview may vary across browsers. 


Once you have finished click "Save and Publish"
