How to create an automated certificate using an add-in tool in Google Sheets.

Creating an Automated Certificate in Google Drive


Overview

If a course has final documentation or a certificate that is produced when a participant completes the class or certain elements within a class, an automated form can be set up in a personal Google Drive using the Autocrat add-in tool.  At this time, there is not an option to use this add-in if the forms and related documents are housed in a shared drive. This process is completed by creating a dedicated folder for the resulting certificates, creating a certificate template in Google Docs, setting up a Google Form, and then adding in the Autocrat tool into the Google sheet associated with the form. The resulting link to the Google Form that initiates the automated process can be emailed to learners to create their own certificate or included in a Canvas course.  Visit this Google Docfor step-by-step instructions.
