Hello from SimpleCert HQ!

Like many places, it’s a truth here that after a busy spring  season, our brains turn to mush and we have no choice but to find creative ways to spend time at the beach, or the mountains, or at a concert… anywhere to refill the creative coffers and rest our weary heads.  Preferably with a tasty beverage in hand.  Well friends, we’re happy to report that Summer has been a success!  Coming out of Labor Day and with summer now behind us, our team is rested, refreshed, and focused exclusively on ways to make SimpleCert an even better tool for your certificate creation needs.

If you read our last post from July, you know that you can now add attachments to your notification emails in your certificate templates!  This update was requested by one of you in the SimpleCert community, and has already proved to be a great feature enhancement for many.  Following along those steps, we’re happy to announce 2 MORE improvements that we think you will love:

  • For those of you that manage multiple certificate templates as a part of your subscription, you know that it’s an easy process to add additional Cert Sets to your account.  Now there’s an easy way to copy an existing certificate as a template when adding a new Certificate Template to your account!  From within the Build Module, simply purchase a new Cert set for your account – and then just click on the “Duplicate” icon that’s on the top left corner of your already existing Cert Set.  Presto! CertSet  A new Certificate Template that’s a copy of your existing Cert Set, that you can now easily customize.  We realize that for many of you who do manage multiple certificate programs, being able to utilize an existing design when creating a new template is a great way to save time and energy.  No more starting with a blank Certificate!
  • If you look closely in the Certificate builder when you are clicking on a text or data field, you’ll notice our next feature enhancement on the top right corner of the building area: A button that says when you hover over it: “Align Center”.  With this new feature, when you are adding or editing a field on your certificate and click this button, that field will automatically be aligned in the center of your certificate.  AlignCenterBAM! Go ahead and file this one under “Why didn’t you think of this before?”, you won’t hurt our feelings.  But we hope it helps as you continue to build your certificate masterpieces.

Be sure to check back here again soon for further updates – there are several others in the works that we will be releasing soon.  And don’t forget if you ever need help building your certificate templates you can reach out to support@simplecert.co at any point.  And remember you can also check out our tutorials and how-too videos on our YouTube channel at any point for great tips and pointers.

Happy Certificating!
