FAQ’s

Can students share their certificates directly on social media?

No, yet we have not added any social media sharing options.

From where can students access their certificates?

After completing the required courses, group courses or quiz, students can access their certificates from their profile. Also, certificates will be sent to the student’s registered email address.

Is this addon compatible with the LearnDash Certificate Verify and Share?

Yes, this addon is compatible with our LearnDash Certificate Verify and Share addon.

I have both products: LearnDash Certificate Verify & Share and LearnDash Multi Certificates. I’m unsure how to display certificates to students after they’ve completed a course. Is there a way to create a single page for students where they can view, download, or print their certificates?

After installation and activation of the LearnDash Certificate Verify & Share addon, insert the [certificate_verification] shortcode on any page where you want to display the certificate verification and then select this page from the “Verification Page” dropdown. 

Here’s how both addons work together:

  1. A student completes a course and earns a certificate.
  2. On the course page, the student clicks on the “Select Certificate” button.
  3. A popup appears, allowing the student to choose their certificate (provided by the LearnDash Multi Certificates addon).
  4. After selecting a certificate, clicking on the “Download Certificate” button redirects them to the Certificate Verification page (configured in the LearnDash Certificate Verify & Share addon).
  5. From this verification page, your students can access their certificates, view, verify, and download them as PDFs.
