How Do I Issue a Batch of Credentials?

Congratulations! If you've created your credential design and set up your group, you are ready to start creating and publishing credentials.

If you have not yet set up a credential design or set up a group, check out the guides below:

How Do I Create a Group?

Starting the Process

You can initiate the credential publishing process in a couple of places.

From Inside a Group

  1. Go to the 'Groups' tab at the top of the Dashboard.
  2. Select the group you wish to publish from and click 'Create Credentials'

You can even click into the group and use the 'Create Credentials' button in the top righthand corner of the page.

From the Credentials Dashboard

  1. Go to the 'Credentials' tab at the top of the Dashboard.
  2. Click 'Create Credentials' button in the top righthand corner of the page.
  3. Choose the group you wish to create and publish credentials for. 

Choose Your Upload Method

There are two methods for uploading data to the Accredible Dashboard in order to create credentials. Choose the one that best suits the number of credentials you are trying to issue.

Manually

Suitable for creating small numbers of credentials, ie. between one and ten. This will require manually inputting the data for each of your recipients. If you have a small number of credentials you want to create but there are a large number of attributes on the certificate design we recommend using the 'Uploading Spreadsheet' method.

Uploading Spreadsheet

Suitable for large numbers of credentials. This will allow you to upload your data using an XLS or CSV spreadsheet.
