Organizing a successful webinar is not a piece of cake. Every webinar you set up requires lots of work and is a time-consuming task, right?. Even though you have an idea of your webinar’s topic, you need to work on crafting a catchy name, determine the right format of your webinar, decide whether you are going to run it yourself or find a speaker, create a thorough promotion plan, then correctly execute that plan, just to name a few parts of such a project.
All these elements are vital for your webinar’s success but are also rather obvious. In this article, I want to focus on a step that takes place after the webinar, which is: creating certificates for webinar attendees. Keep reading to learn how to generate certificates in bulk using a certificate maker.
How to create certificates for webinar participants
Generating certificates for webinar participants doesn’t have to be a tedious task. If you equip yourself with the right certificate generator, like Certifier, this process will require just a few clicks.
The first step of creating certificates for those who took part in your webinar is about getting a file with a list of all participants. A webinar tool you used to organize your online event provides this kind of file for sure. So just log in to a panel and download a list of attendees. Make sure a list includes the email addresses of participants so that you can later send certificates using a certificate maker. Later in this article, we will explain how to do it using a few examples of popular webinar tools.
Step 2. Choose a template of certificates for webinar participants
Go to your Certifier account, click on the Design tab, and select Create a new design. A library of free certificate templates will be opened.
Now, choose a template that suits the topic of your webinar best and start editing. You can add text fields, the webinar’s title, custom attributes (like the attendee's name and surname, date of issue, certificate ID), choose the orientation (portrait or landscape), the size of a certificate, etc. The Certifier Design tab also enables you to create templates from scratch by adding backgrounds and editing attributes.
Step 3. Upload a list of webinar attendees
Once you have a list of webinar participants ready, go to the Courses tab in the Certifier panel, and then click Create a New Course. Then add a course and groups to create certificates for webinar attendees. In the next step, select Issue Certificates and upload a CSV file with a list of webinar participants.
Make sure the names of attributes used in a certificate template are consistent with the names of columns in a CSV file so that the data is uploaded correctly.
Now, just click Validate to upload a list to your certificate generator.
Step 4. Send certificates in bulk to all webinar attendees
By selecting the Validate option in your certificate generator, in this case - the Certifier panel, you created certificates for webinar attendees in a PDF format. All certificates include data sourced from a CSV file with a list of those who participated in your webinar. Now you have to paste them into the certificate template you selected and click Publish and Send.
And that’s it - all participants of your webinar received an email with a personalized certificate attached.
Why would you want to generate certificates for webinar attendees?
As I mentioned above, doing an engaging webinar is a process that consists of many steps. When you invest so much time and resources in a project, you want to make sure it will deliver tangible results and make a good impression on all participants. Providing a personalized certificate for each person who attended your webinar will help you achieve these results.
The fact that you create a certificate for each person who attended your webinar makes your online event seem more serious, credible, and professional. Receiving such a document may be also important for those who took part in a webinar, so you will meet their expectations by sending them a digital, validated proof of attendance in a webinar.

First, log in to Zoom. In the navigation sidebar on your left-hand side select Reports. Then select the Usage Reports and select the Report Type you would like to search for. This will prompt a dashboard with a list of all webinars you organized recently. If you organize many webinars, use the date pickers to narrow down the list or enter the Webinar ID number to find the event you are interested in.
When you spot the webinar you want to get a list of participants for, select it, and click Generate CSV Report. The download of the list will be prompted automatically.
