Step 2: Design your certificate or badge

Start your journey with Certifier by designing your first credential. To create a design, go to the Designs tab and click on “Create Design.” Then, choose one of Certifier’s templates and customize it to your needs. Our visual design builder lets you edit any element on the template by changing its position, size, color, fonts, and more. You can also add your own elements like your company logo, custom background, or branded icons.

Step 3: Edit dynamic attributes

Using dynamic attributes on your credentials allows you to generate multiple certificates at once, with the recipient's data automatically inserted into each one. Here’s how to edit the dynamic attributes on your certificates in two simple steps.

3.1 Add dynamic attributes for recipient names

Using the attribute [recipient.name], you can generate multiple certificates with different names at once. The field will be replaced by the recipient’s actual name once the certificate is issued. Make sure that it is wide enough to fit long first and last names without causing text overlay. Also, enable the auto-scaling feature to make sure that the text automatically adjusts to the width of the field.

3.2 Customize dynamic attributes 

With Certifier, you have complete control over every aspect of the certificate or badge template, including dynamic attributes. Adjust their size, font, and color to align with your document's look and brand identity. Arrange them anywhere you prefer within the template.

3.3 Add custom dynamic attributes 

Aside from the default attributes, you can create custom attributes you want to display on your certificates, badges, or emails, such as course grades or event hours. To add a custom attribute, scroll to the bottom of the attributes list and click “Add Custom Attribute.”

Step 4: Generate multiple certificates at once

With dynamic attributes, you can create a single certificate or badge template that will auto-populate with each recipient’s information when you issue it. This means you can save time on manual entry and generate multiple certificates simultaneously. Here’s how to issue your certificates with Certifier in 5 steps. 

4.1 Create a group of recipients 

To issue certificates, begin by creating a group you'll add your recipients to. Head to the Groups tab in the main menu and choose "Create Group." This will lead you to a group setup page where you need to input details like the group's name and description and select the corresponding credential design.

4.2 Prepare a CSV file with recipient data 

To make mass certificate generation faster and easier, create a spreadsheet with recipient data like names, emails, grades, and other relevant information. If you have your recipient data in an LMS or CRM, download it in a CSV or XML format. Then, use Google Sheets or Excel to clean and organize data, removing unnecessary rows and columns. If the first and last names are in separate columns, combine them into a single column before uploading the spreadsheet to Certifier. Also, make sure the final version of the spreadsheet is exported in a CSV format. 

4.3 Add your recipients to Certifier

To add your recipients to Certifier, head to the Credentials tab and click "Issue Certificates or Badges." Pick your newly created group and start adding your recipients' names, emails, and other data. You can add your recipients to the group by typing their details one by one or import the entire list at once from the spreadsheet you prepared. When importing from a spreadsheet, make sure to organize the columns correctly.

4.4 Preview the certificate with filled data

You can easily preview how your certificate or badge will look with recipients’ data. After adding your recipients to the list and filling out the corresponding attributes, click “Preview Before Publishing.” This will send you to a preview screen, where you’ll be able to see how your filled-out certificate will appear on your recipients’ credential portal.

4.5 Send the credentials to your recipients’ list

If you’re satisfied with the look of your document and spotted no mistakes, click on “Save and Publish” to issue the certificate to your recipients. This will generate multiple certificates at once and send them automatically to your entire recipients’ list. Alternatively, you can also download all certificates in a PDF format as a single ZIP file.

Best practices to generate certificates with dynamic attributes in bulk

Add custom dynamic attributes

Personalize your credentials with custom dynamic attributes. With Certifier, you can choose among default attributes, such as recipient name, issue and expiration dates, or certificate ID. But that’s not all - you can go a step further and add your own custom dynamic attributes to capture specific details that matter most to your recipients. This way, you can create even more personalized credentials that carry a meaningful and individualized message, strengthening the bond with your recipients.

Use a single design template

Forget about having to make a copy of each diploma only to manually fill it with the recipient's information and send it in a separate email to them. With Certifier, you design your certificate just once and use it as a template to generate multiple certificates without manual data entry. So, instead of overcrowding your design platform with multiple versions of the same certificate, use Certifier’s visual design builder to create a template that will populate with relevant data on autopilot.

Use the auto-scaling feature for dynamic attributes

Since dynamic attributes get replaced by the actual recipient data once the certificate is issued, sometimes, it may result in text overflow and interference with other elements - especially when it comes to long recipient names or certificate ID numbers. To avoid this, select the “Enable Auto-Scaling” box next to the text size. The auto-scaling feature means that the text is dynamic and will automatically adjust to the width of the field. So, make sure to leave enough space in the field for long names and numbers.

Label credentials with a certificate UUID

Keep everything organized by attaching a universally unique certificate ID to each credential. Even though the certificate UUID may seem like a string of random numbers and letters, identifying your certificate with it will help you easily keep track of each certificate without getting them mixed up. Since each UUID is unique, there won't be any confusion if you have multiple certificates with similar names. Moreover, it'll make searching for specific certificates much quicker, as you can just search for the UUID.

Ensure the accuracy of recipient data

Before generating multiple certificates at once, double-check the recipient data to make sure there are no mistakes, like typos or missing details. This will prevent you from sending out multiple certificates with errors. Also, make sure that your document design is error-free. This is crucial, as with bulk generation, even a tiny mistake in your design will spread onto every issued certificate, which can result in undermining your credibility and professionalism as a certificate issuer.

Import data from a spreadsheet

With Certifier, you can skip the hassle of typing out recipient data one by one. Instead, you can import all your recipient data at once from a spreadsheet. With a few clicks, you can seamlessly transfer recipient details into Certifier, reducing the likelihood of typos, missing data, duplicates, and mix-ups. Importing data from a spreadsheet is a smart move that not only makes the process much quicker than manual typing but also ensures accuracy.

Check for dynamic text overflow

The best part about dynamic attributes? They adjust automatically to the text they contain, so you don’t need to edit each element manually. But this also means that your certificates carry the risk of overflow if you don’t leave enough space for the text to stretch its legs. Before issuing your credentials, make sure all dynamic attributes fit into their designated spots on the template. This way, you'll avoid any trouble with text overflowing and keep everything looking neat and professional.

Choose fonts that support special characters

Prevent the special characters in your recipients’ names from turning into undecipherable hieroglyphics by selecting fonts that support them. Not all fonts can handle special characters that aren't part of the English alphabet, like ñ, ź, or ö. It might slip your notice when inserting a dynamic attribute into your credential design - until you suddenly find your recipient's name looking like hieroglyphs on the issued certificate. Test each font to prevent this from happening.
