How Do I Add Attributes to Certificate Designs?

Attributes do all the heavy lifting in getting the relevant data to show on your credentials. Here's how to make sure they're applied to your designs.

Adding Attributes to Credential Designs

Exclusive to Accredible: Attributes are available on badge designs, too!

If you are unfamiliar with attributes, click here to find out more about what they do.

Templates come with the main attributes you will need already placed on the design: the recipient name, the course name, the credential ID, and the issue date.

If you wish to add another attribute onto your design, such as the Expiry Date attribute:

  1. Click on the 'Attributes' tab on the left-hand sidebar menu.
  2. In the list of attributes, click on 'Expiry Date,' and the attribute will be dropped into the top left-hand corner of your design.
  3. Drag and drop the attribute to anywhere you like on the design.

The Attribute List will tell you when an attribute is already in use on your design, so you don't accidentally get the same one twice!
