I presumed "issued date" would mean the date/time on which the student accessed/downloaded the certificate and "completed date" would mean the date/time on which the certificate criteria/restrictions were met by the student. That does not seem to be the case.
To test this I created two certificates each tied to a different quiz. Certificate A is set to issued date. Certificate B is set to completion date. The student reached the grade threshold for each quiz.
I checked each certificate as a teacher. Both show no certificate issued.
Once the student downloaded each certificate, it then showed as issued via the teacher view. The date/time on the certificate both reflect the download date/time, not the date on which the criteria was met.
My questions are:
- Can someone clarify the expected behaviors for completion date versus issued date?
- How do I ensure the date on the certificate reflects the date the criteria was met rather than the date on which the certificate was downloaded?
