    Hello, I set the completion of a scorm as the print date of the certificate. Where do you go to get the date of the scorm that is printed by the db? Can I change it?

    I don't have "restrict access" as an option for setting up the certificate. I really need that option. What happened?

    You should check your version of Moodle, if it is up to date, and the plugin version. My restrictions work.

    I use your useful plugin, but I have problems visualizing some data if I want to use moodle function "operations in mass" and export the certificates in pdf format.
    In this case infact, the data I entered with PROFILE_LN (for example) do not appear in the certificates. {USERNAME} or {CERTIFICATECODE} are ok, the problem is with PROFILE data.
    I see all them correctly in a download of single certificate, but I don't see the same things if i want have a pdf with two or a lot of certificates (like operations in mass should do).
    Can you help me solve the problem?

    Hi, I have configured the simplecertificate and inserted the timestart parameter to print the date of the beginning of the course. I am using the Easy Enrollments plugin to automate user registration and the timestart date is not recognized. Why? How can I fix it?

    --------------- EN ---------------
    I am not able to query the certificate, correctly enter the certificate code, fill reCaptcha, and return no results.
    This I did by testing on a certificate from a user with student level.
    I am using the 2017120400 version of simpleCertificate in Moodle 3.3.

    Does anyone have any solutions ??

    --------------- PT_BR ---------------
    Não estou conseguindo consultar o certificado, insiro corretamente o código do certificado, preencho o reCaptcha, e não retorna nenhum resultado.
    Isso fiz testando em um certificado de um usuário com nível de aluno.
    Estou usando a versão 2017120400 do simpleCertificate, no Moodle 3.3.

    Alguém tem alguma solução??

    My favorite certificate plugin.

    One tip when using the Filter Codes ( plugin: disable the filter code plugin in the simple certificate activity. Otherwise the usernames might not working properly.

    Es posible que cuando el estudiante termine su examen y si lo aprobó,
    que le envie en automatico el Certificado al correo electronico del estudiante?

    He probado la configuracion y funciona si al terminar el examen, el
    estudiante vuelve al curso, ingresa a Certificado y presiona el boton Obtener certificado.

    Estoy usando:
    Moodle Version 3.3.4 (Build: 20180115)
    Simple Certificate Version 2.2.7 2017120400

    Gracias por tu ayuda!

    Hola !
    Si usted se encuentra en la Unión Europea, bajo la nueva DGPS, se requerirá una validación humana para la emisión de un certificado.
    Así que deberíamos cambiar nuestras asignaciones automáticas.

    Good morning,
    If you are in the European Union, under the new DGPS, a human validation will be required for a certificate to be issued.
    So we should change our automatic allocations.

    Oi Daniel!

    Você sabe informar se eu posso habilitar algum campo do perfil na página de certificados emitidos?

    Ex. Quando eu clico lá nos certificados que já foram emitidos, aparece os campos: 'obtido para'; 'data de recebimento'; 'nota' e 'código'.
    A pergunta é: Podemos adicionar algum campo padrão do moodle, para imprimir a informação nesta mesma tela?
