How Do I Customize How People Interact with Credentials?

Accredible gives recipients and credential viewers a number of different ways to interact with their credentials, but you as the issuer can manage or disable these completely.


Important Note: This feature is only available on Premium Plans.

Available Interaction Options

Below is the list of options currently available on the Accredible Credential View. 'The viewer' refers to when the option is made public and can be seen by anyone, not just the recipient.

 Add to Certifications on LinkedIn Profile

This allows recipients to add their credentials directly to their LinkedIn profiles.

Download PDF

This allows the viewer to download a PDF copy of the certificate. This does not apply to badges.

Download Print Quality PDF

This allows the viewer to download a PDF copy of the certificate that is of high enough quality for printing. This does not apply to badges.

Download Badge

This allows the viewer to download a PNG version of their digital badge.

Email Credential

This allows the viewer to send an email with a credential link button directly from the Credential View.

Embed Credential

This allows the viewer to embed the credential to another website or an email signature.

Transcript Letter

If you have included a transcript letter with your credential, this option allows the viewer to read the transcript letter.

Credential Privacy Toggle

This allows the recipient to change the visibility of their credential to either be public or private.

We do not recommend making this option public.

Request a Name Change

This allows the recipient to request a name change if there is an error in the name that appears on the certificate.

We do not recommend making this option public or disabling it.

Add Evidence

The viewer can add evidence to supplement their credential and provide further evidence of skill and proficiency. This could be a file, a video, or a website that they have worked on.

Managing Recipient View Options

  1. Go to the Main Menu by clicking on your name at the top right-hand corner of the Accredible Dashboard and clicking 'Settings.'
  2. In the left-hand sidebar menu, click on 'Recipient View Options.'
  3. You will see a table of all the Recipient View Options. Select whether you would like each of these options to be:

Public - Everyone can use this option.

Auth - Only the recipient can use this feature when they are logged into their credential.

Disabled - The option is removed from view entirely and cannot be used, even if the recipient is signed into their credential.

By default, all of these options are made public, except 'Credential Privacy Toggle' and 'Name Change Request,' which are made 'Auth.'

Social Sharing Widgets

We also have widgets for popular social media platforms on the 'Recipient View Options' page. You can choose the visibility of these widgets as well. We recommend keeping them public to encourage people to share credentials they have won through you.
