v1.20 – Team Member Permissions


To keep up with compliance, prevent mistakes and get the help you need it’s important to have the right team member permissions set up for your colleagues. We’ve made it easier and simpler to add team members and control what they’re able to do with your credentials.

Now you can:

  • Select which groups a team member has access to.
  • Restrict a colleague’s access to billing, designs, analytics, email, etc.
  • Set team members to ‘view only’ mode.

We’ve also added the ability to log in to more than one organization, enabling you to manage more than one brand and keep different departments’ credentials separate.

EU Model Clauses – Data Privacy


We’ve just completed our work on a data privacy agreement based upon the EU Model Clauses and German data privacy law. We’re excited to enter into this agreement with any customer that wants piece of mind that their data is being protected to the highest possible standard.

It sets out the organizational and technical measures we use to protect your data and we’ve written a whitepaper on the agreement. Download the data privacy whitepaper.

Accredible & The Role

Accredible is building the repository of the world’s credentials. We want hiring to be about what you can do, your skills and potential.

In the past three years we’ve built the best credentialing product in the world. Universities, associations, tech companies and others are able to create, deliver and manage tens of thousands of digital certificates and open badges with just a few clicks. We’re continuing to make this product as good as it can be and have been laser focused on the needs of credential issuers. Now we’re ready to start focusing on credential recipients; the people who take part in learning and then receive a certificate or badge.

Your role will be to help build a great product for certificate recipients. You’ll be helping them to upload their own certificates, send transcripts to third parties, embed their certificate wallet in a website, view course recommendations that help them skill up, etc. You’ll be able to have a huge impact for thousands and thousands of users.

You won’t be doing this alone as we have a world-class product team you’ll be working with. You’ll have support from a designer, a back-end engineer, a project manager and another front-end engineer.

You’ll have a lot of decision making power, autonomy and trust. We make decisions democratically and give team members the time, resource and authority to work on what they think is most important.

v1.18 – Improvements


We’re always working hard to improve our service and make creation, management and delivery of certificates, badges and Blockchain credentials as easy as possible. A regular part of our work is to spend time fixing small bugs, making improvements and adding small features. In this update we’ve made many such improvements including:

  • You can set a groups credentials to be private by default.
  • You can prevent automatic acceptance of typo name changes.
  • We’ve added a social media button generator to the visual email editor.
  • We’ve updated the appearance of credentials when shared on twitter to be more attractive and flexible.
  • You’re now able to rotate your API keys.

Canvas Integration Update – Final Grade or Score


We’ve updated the Accredible – Canvas LMS integration so that you can better automate generation of certificates, badges and blockchain credentials.

When you connect Canvas to Accredible we automatically generate Groups for each course. After setting up the integration click onto the settings page for a particular Group. On the settings page choose whether you’d like students to receive a certificate based on their final grade, score or upon course completion. You may also select whether to automatically publish their credentials upon creation.

v1.17 – Blockchain Credentials


We’re excited to announce you can now securely issue your credentials with our pioneering Blockchain technology. When this option is enabled, a permanent record of your credentials is cryptographically sealed into the blockchain. What does this mean? Third parties viewing those credentials can be absolutely certain a record has not been altered, providing an ironclad defense against fraud.

It’s easy to use and is included in your current pricing – it doesn’t incur any additional cost.

What is the Blockchain?
The Blockchain is an incorruptible digital ledger of economic transactions that can be programmed to record not just financial transactions but virtually everything of value. Accredible uses the Bitcoin Blockchain to store an immutable record of credentials. Anything that we write to the Blockchain can’t be altered in the future by any party.

How does the Blockchain prevent fraud?
Once we’ve recorded a credential on the Blockchain it cannot be altered, faked, or spoofed. If someone attempts to create a credential that looks like your credentials it won’t verify against the Blockchain record.

v1.16 – Recertification, Bulk Update & Spreadsheet Upload


We’ve revamped the credential creation process so that you can:

  • Re-certify recipients via spreadsheet upload. Just update the expiry date and we’ll do the rest.
  • Update existing credentials en-masse. Using your own records or an export from our platform.
  • Upload spreadsheets of any format. There’s no need to use a template or follow our column naming – just upload your data and then tell us what each column represents.

We’ve updated our documentation on creating credentials and updating credentials to walk you through the process.

v1.15 – Security Hardening


We’ve spent the last couple of weeks making sure our security is bulletproof!

Alongside improving our policies we’ve deprecated some SSL cyphers that drop support for older browsers but ensure that we’re better protected.

v1.14.1 – Japanese Locale


We’re excited to announce support for Japanese recipients!

Now we support credential delivery to recipients in English, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish.

v1.14 – Email Customization and White Labelling


Take control of your credential communication with our new email editor. Our visual email editor lets you:

  • White label all emails sent to certificate and badge recipients.
  • Customize the content of any email.
  • Customize the call to actions in your email.
  • Specify a particular email template for any course or achievement.
  • Use an email template for multiple groups with just one click.
  • Localize email templates.

We’ve also taken steps to improve email deliverability and have provided more consistent, visually appealing email templates.
