Sharing certificates with test-takers
Certificates are a great way to recognize and reward students for their achievements. With FlexiQuiz, you can award test-takers a PDF certificate when they pass your quiz.
Certificates can be automatically generated on one of our ready to use templates and include the test-takers details such as name, date of quiz, grade, plus a unique certificate ID.
You can allow your quiz-takers to download their certificate from their results page, or you can send an email notification.
Premium and Enterprise customers can also create and upload custom certificate backgrounds with company logos, signatures, and branding.
This guide shows you how to generate and share a certificate using one of our templates.

How test-taker names are mapped to a certificate
The test-takers name is maps to the certificate based on how you choose to share the quiz.
Quiz link or email invites.
If you share your quiz using the quiz link or email invite, you need to add a registration page to capture the users information.
The registration page is pre-set to ask users for a 'First name' and 'Last name'. These details map to the Name field on the certificate.
However, if you change the registration fields, the data needs to be updated on the certificate. For example, if you change 'First name' to 'Your NaME' on the registration screen.
The certificate needs to be updated with the word 'Your NaME' in curly brackets. Important! The text in curly brackets must match precisely the text on the registration page, including any upper and lower case characters.
When assigning your quiz to Respondents, the first name and last name fields on their account maps to the certificate.
