Course Completion - Email Certificate
There are two options for notifying the User via email about availability of a Completed Course/Path/Event Certificate. The Certificate will be automatically emailed to the User on completion, instead of the user having to go in to their Learning record and download.
•Course/Path/Event-Specific Certificate Notifications - this option overrides any automated certificate notifications settings.
Use Communications > Templates to create the exact emails you'd like to send to notify users about Course, Event or Path-aligned Certificates. Include Certificate-related variables in your templates. Create a template to notify users that they've got a certificate available for completing a Course/Path/Event and include a link to their certificate from the email notification.
Template variables for Course/Path/Event-aligned certificates
Use this template to populate the Communications > Automated Notifications > User Notification - Certificate Assigned - Turn ON to automatically send a notification to users based on the date a certificate was assigned (User has completed the aligned Course/Path/Event). Will not be sent if OFF or if a Course/Path/Event-Specific notification is set up instead in the Course/Path/Event > Notifications tab.
