Accredible - Certificates and Badges

Our favorite five new features for November 2018

We’ve added a lot of new features and functionality to Accredible in our latest release. Here are our top five!

1. New Credential Page Layout

The new credential page is cleaner and easier to read:

We’ve introduced screen areas for new information to be added, such as other courses. You can also provide your own custom call to action and link, as shown middle right below:

2. Credential Privacy Indicator

Sometimes its the little things that make the biggest difference, and this much asked for feature will allow issuers to see the privacy status of their issued credentials, in the credentials list.

3. Contract Details View

Now you can see detailed information on your subscriptions and your entitlements, including your monthly cost, any adjustments, next month’s charges, and your balance.

Better Badges & Certificates


Example Badge

We’ve improved the experience of your certificate & badge recipients.

It’s now easier (and more attractive) for your recipients to share their collection of credentials. If you’re issuing more than one certificate or badge to the same person, they can now easily share a glance-able page with all of their achievements.
A recipient of a credential can now set a password for return visits for easier login. Recipients of certificates and badges are still automatically logged in to the credential and don’t get prompted to create a password. They will only see the option in the dropdown from their account name. This makes re-logging in much smoother (and equally secure option) for many recipients who have found the security-code process difficult in the past.
We now indicate to certificate and badge viewers that they can ‘Verify a Credential’. We want your recipients to benefit from increased trust in their credentials.
– We’ve updated the display of the credential page to put more emphasis on the requirements and status of a credential.
Sharing is easier. We’ve reworked the actions on the credential view to ensure that the key options are easier to access.
– Certificates & Badges load much faster and have a reduced file size.
– We now support the French language. We’re always adding new languages.

– A shortcode to let you show badges & certificates belonging to the currently signed in user to any page or post. You can customize the display and limit the number shown.
