  4. Email Course Certificates


The Email Course Certificates module is part of the Pro Suite of modules for the Uncanny LearnDash Toolkit. Out of the box, LearnDash supports dynamic generation of a certificate after successful completion of a course, but the certificate must be viewed online or downloaded to the user’s computer. This Pro module extends LearnDash functionality to attach a certificate to the email that is sent to the user upon the successful completion of a course. The certificate email can also be sent to site administrators, group leader(s) or any number of related users.

*This is a global module and cannot be enabled or disabled for a specific course. This module will send out an email with the certificate .pdf attached for any course that has an associated certificate.

Module Settings

This module by default stores certificates on server.  This option can be disabled by checking Do not store certificates on server.

If you want a copy of the certificate sent to the Site Admin and/or Group Leader(s), simply check the respective boxes.  You may also include CC’d users in the CC Certificate To field.

The Email Subject & Email Body fields control the email content.  Tokens are available and listed just below the Email Body field.

In version 3.0.4, a Use Cron to send certificate setting was added.  This setting should only be checked if you are having issues with shortcodes not outputting the correct data in the emailed certificates.  Otherwise it should be left unchecked.

Click the Save Settings button to save your settings.

      We’ll consider the changes for a future release, but I’m afraid we can’t promise anything. Right now we haven’t had many requests for either change, but certainly there is value for some users in adding those.

    90% of the SETTINGS button doesn’t work to open the UI. I need to make changes, but can’t get to the settings screen.

      Hi Bobbie, we unfortunately can’t provide support in the Knowledge Base, but please do log a ticket or send us an email so we can help. There is no known issue related to this; it’s likely a javascript conflict on your site. When you open a ticket, make sure you let us know exactly what you’re seeing when you’re trying to open and save settings. Also check the javascript console (View > Developer > Javascript Console in Chrome) to see if any errors are output there.
