I have implemented the certificate module.
The Certificate is dependent on a quiz. Once you have attempted the quiz and then when you click on the certificate you see the scores.
I want the certificate to be e-mailed to the individual users. Currently it is possible when the User manually clicks on the View Certificate button.
But, I would like this process to be automatic. The Certificate should sent through an email as soon as the quiz end date is reached.
Is this possible.
I have a very similar issue and the solution could resolve both of our issues. In my case, I would like an automatic email to be sent to the teacher without the user manually clicking on the View Certificate button. In fact, I don't want users to have access to this at all as we want to receive completion notification emails and send our own certificate via email to each user.
Any solution for this?
Any update on this issue?
It would be great if this process was automated instead of relying on the student to trigger it by pressing a button.
Or ... maybe... only allow the teacher to email the certificate after viewing the grades?
Any solution guys
I am bumping this to see if any solution has been found.
There is a good reason why it doesn't work that way. Certificate was originally implemented as an activity. Moodle activities actually require a user to actually do something to trigger anything.
We have an in-house development team (we're small, but scrappy) and the complexity of automating this cannot be underestimated.
We have the functionality working in most circumstances, but it required a significant rewrite of the plugin and so far even small changes in the gradebook can break it and any variance from a clean schema causes problems too.
If we ever get a stable release we will release it to the community. Note that it is based on the original certificate module not the currently underway rewrite.
