Understanding Event Certificates

Event certificates are essential documents that serve as a tangible recognition of an individual’s participation in a specific event, whether it’s a professional conference, educational workshop, or community fundraiser. These certificates hold more than just symbolic value; they reflect the attendee’s commitment to the event’s objectives and contribute to an overall sense of accomplishment. Event certificates also play a crucial role in enhancing the professionalism of the event itself, making it more memorable and valued by participants.

However, creating event certificates can often take time and effort for event organizers.

How to Create Event Certificate with Eventin

With the help of the Elementor page builder and the Gutenberg builder, you can create and customize the certificate for each event attendee with the Eventin certificate builder.

For various events, you can make unique templates and customize the design to suit your preferences.

  • The participant’s information comes dynamically through a shortcode.
  • You can create different templates for different events.
  • You can design the template according to your choice.
  • You can create a template using Gutenberg blocks as well as the Elementor editor.

Important Note:

  • You have to select the Eventin template as a page template. Otherwise, certificate functionalities will not work.
  • The email for the certification will be sent to the purchaser’s email address, not the participant’s email address.

Step 1: Creating a Certificate Template

Begin by setting up a certificate template to serve as the foundation for your event certificates.

In your WordPress dashboard, navigate to “WP Dashboard” -> “Pages” -> “Add New.” -> Create a page with a title and Select Certificate Template as the page template.

Step 2: Designing Certificates with Gutenberg Builder

Now, let’s design your certificates using Gutenberg blocks:

Adding Background

To make your certificate template visually appealing, click on the Gutenberg block.

Click on the Gutenberg block and add a cover image for the certificate background.

You can customize the background image by managing attributes like position, color, opacity, focus point for the caption, dimensions, and more. You can manage this from the block tab on the right sidebar.

Adding Content

You can use any Gutenberg blocks for adding the content on the certification such as title, paragraph, image, and more. You can also manage the typography, color settings, text settings, and other designs.

Participant Shortcode

The participant information comes dynamically in your certificate if you use the shortcode. Please go to Eventin -> shortcode -> Event Certificate (Pro) -> Select the Event title, Event date, Participant name, and Ticket ID.

You will see the shortcode generator option. Click on generate, copy the shortcode, and add it to the certificate page.

Step 3: Designing Certificates with Elementor

First, you must create a page and select the Eventin Certificate template.

Navigate to “WP Dashboard” -> “Pages” -> “Add New” -> Create a page with a title and Select Certificate Template as the page template.

Then click on the “Edit with Elementor” and the Elementor editor will appear.

Adding Background

From the Elementor editor, add a section and section background image. You can customize the size, position, and many more from the left sidebar as your preference.

Adding Content

You can add any Elementor elements to add the content for the certification like title, paragraph, image, and so on. You can also manage the typography, color settings, text settings, and other designs.

Participant Shortcodes

You can use the event attendee shortcode to show the attendee information dynamically in the Elementor template. Please go to Eventin -> shortcode -> Event Certificate (Pro) -> Select the Event title, Event date, Participant name, and Ticket ID. After generating the shortcode add it to the template.

Step 4: Certificate Distribution

Certification Preference

You can send the certificate via email to the checked-out attendees or all attendees. Go, to Eventin -> Settings -> Participant. Now select “Send to Checked-in Participants” if you want to send a certificate for only the checked-in attendees using a QR code. And if you want to send the certificate to all attendees then select the “Send to All Participants” option.

Select template on Event

Now create an event from Eventin -> Events and Add new. You have to select the Certificate Template that you want to use for the event.

Email Send

After successful purchases, the certificate will be generated for the participants. Go to Eventin -> Events and here you can see the send button in the Certificate column. You can send the certificate to the event attendees by clicking the send button.

The email body that the purchasers will receive appears as follows. The purchasers can download the participant certificate from this page.
