Add a certificate to a path

  • Updated

Authors, group administrators, and platform administrators can add certificates to paths.

NOTE: Path certificates are distinct from program certificates, so you cannot reuse program certificate blocks created in paths.

Add a certificate

  1. In the left sidebar, click Dashboard.
  2. In the left sidebar, click PATHS.
  3. On the right of the name of a path, click Edit (pen icon).
  4. At the bottom of the page, enable Certificate.
  5. Click Certificate.
  6. Select an existing certificate in the list and click CONFIRM, or click NEW CERTIFICATE at the top right.

You can also create a certificate from the menu DashboardCERTIFICATES, by clicking + at the top right of the section Certificates.

Certificates contain the following fields:

  • Background image: we recommend a size of 1500x1050 pixels, and using our template, to avoid overlap between your visuals and the text of the certificate. Click on the image to upload a new one.
  • Title (mandatory): max 70 characters.
  • Certificate name: max 28 characters if custom.
  • Certification authority: (mandatory): max 100 characters.
  • Contact: max 200 characters.
  • Validity period: when checked, enter a number of months (positive integer) to define when the certificate expires.
  • Description (mandatory): max 400 characters.
  • Owner group: only administrators and authors of this group can see, edit and delete the certificate (this includes administrators of higher-level groups, by inheritance).

Click PREVIEW at the top right to view the appearance of the certificate.

Edit a certificate
