How to Use the 'Transcript Letter' Feature

How to use transcripts letters for your recipients

Accredible lets you generate a PDF transcript letter based on course modules, assignments, test, etc. that you can supply as attributes. This enables a credential recipient to retrieve a transcript of their achievement via Accredible without needing a staff member to prepare it for them.

Designing And Setting Up A Transcript Letter

A transcript letter is specific to a group on Accredible. You will have to set up your design on the group you'd like it to be in effect for. You can, however, copy and paste the content if you want to recreate a transcript letter design for another group.

Your design can use standard design elements like links, images, styled text to produce an official looking document. You can importantly, use credential attributes to programmatically swap in data like the user's name and the grades.

Using Attribute Data In The Transcript Letter

The transcript letter uses attributes like the certificate designer. This means that attributes like [], [credential.issued_on] are easily available for you to use in your transcript letter design with just the default information on a credential.

In order to add grade and course name information, you will need to addcustom attributesand use them in your design. You can provide information for these attributes the same as with any other attribute - in your spreadsheet upload, API request, etc.

Retrieving A Transcript Letter

A transcript letter is only visible to the recipient of the transcript letter. The option for a recipient to retrieve their credential letter will appear on the left side of the credential view with their other options.
