        Any update on this? I've noticed items with few votes show up on the "Hot" ideas list. Has this been discussed?

        Any update on this Wild Apricots? It would also be nice to be able to generate this into the membership account page along with any other certifications they receive.

        I educate and my membership is taking a change and I have to change with it or close. Being able to issue printable certificates to participants would be a great assistance to my company. People expect instant results and they want a certificate to prove it.

        This is an absolute MUST HAVE! Would be nice if certificates were available indefinitely for members to login at any time to their account and retrieve certificates for any trainings they've received.

        This would be HUGE for us as well. About 99% of the events we hold require us to generate a certificate of attendence as proof for CE(CPE). We currently do this from an export of attendees and generate in PDF form. WE then upload these to our site under files and provide a unique link to each member via a separate mail merge. It would be ideal if we could generate these via WA and have them linked to each members account or event history so they could retrieve them independently.

        I agree -this would be a huge benefit! We do conference certificates that people use for continuing ed credits. Would LOVE to have them automatically generated from the attendee list.

        Ditto Drew's comment. We're new to WA, and I'd just asked tech support if they knew of anyone doing something like this before I found this post. For our purposes the form could be a PDF compiled from the Event data and look the same for all recipients. Attendee names included etc. (also from the WA database) would be a bonus. thanks!

        This sounds perfect for creating PDH certificates for our members to save and record their continuing education credits. I'd really like to see this! Right now we have to manually create a blank form from our Excel template, upload it to the website, and send it to all verified attendees.

        It would look way nicer to have their name pre-filled, and if it could include the cost for the event, and even how and when they paid at the bottom so they can use it as a receipt for reimbursement if necessary that would be perfect!

        Thanks for considering!

        System-Generated Certificates after required CEUs are earned. This would be a huge upgrade to this system if this was available and we would be able to move additional associations that we manage over to Wild Apricot.

        Would like to incorporate a post event evaluation that can be emailed out, with analytics to collect responses, and customize the final page as a certificate once evaluation is submitted.

        And if the system generates a pre-designed certificate as a PDF, we need the possibility of configuring the printing specs for the PDF. For example, print with some security features.

        +1 for this feature! Especially if we get Voting/Polling setup.
        Right now we fake this by sending out an HTML email using the macros for their names. But this varies by browser. IT would be nicer if we could generate a PDF create a PDF certificate based on some template.

        It would be nice to have a Post Event Polling Survey that emails individual PDF certificates of completion
