This plugin allows users to create certificate templates on the system and course category levels. Certificate templates can have user fields such as user name, profile picture, etc, and also additional dynamic fields that are added by the issuer (through API).

The built-in interface allows users to issue certificates manually and browse the issued certificates.

A verification code / link / QR code can be added to the certificate template. Certificates can be verified by unauthenticated users even on sites with forced login and no guest access.

Other plugins can depend on this plugin to issue certificates based on some criteria, for example Course certificates (mod_coursecertificate) is an activity module that will automatically issue certificates when the student satisfies the access restrictions. The mod_coursecertificate plugin will send the course name and completion information to the tool_certificate plugin, so if these fields are included in the template, they will be displayed on the certificate.

    Hi,
    I reviewed this plugin and it looks like it has some enhancements over the original custom certificate plugin, I have the below questions
    1. is there a way to issue certificates by uploading CSV file?
    2. can I give permission for a user to issue one certificate template, and can't issue any other template?
    3. is there a report page to view the certificate issue globally, per course, and per category?
    4. is there a way to modify the expiry date after the certificate is issued?

    I recommend also if you included the recent tcpdf fonts which can be downloaded from here https://sourceforge.net/projects/tcpdf/files/ to support more languages like Arabic and RTL languages

    Hello Mohamed
    1. not yet, you are welcome to create an improvement request in the tracker (see link above)
    2. yes you can put the templates in different course categories, or you can make some templates not available in sub-contexts
    3. you can use filters on the "Certificates" page, but afaik you can't search by course category. The fine tuned reporting is only available in Moodle Workplace using the report builder. But good news is that report builder will be in Moodle LMS in 4.0
    4. no

    regarding tcpdf - you can add your own fonts yourself, see https://docs.moodle.org/310/en/Add_fonts_for_embedding

    Hi,
    I have a problem with adding Polish characters in the Certificate. Everything is in UTF-8 and in the generated document some national characters are "?". How to correct it?

    make sure you use Free Sans font that is shipped with moodle by default. See the comments above about how to add more fonts

    Would it be possible to include a field which automatically puts the teacher of a course into the template? As far as I can see that doesn't work at the moment. So when you have the same course taught be different teachers, you need to adjust the template every time the teacher changes.
