Parent Certificates w/ Variable Credit

How do you produce a single certificate for parent-child events that have variable credit? For instance, there is a seminar with 10 sessions built in a parent-child relationship. Each session is optional, so people may earn 1-10 hours’ credit. How do we have Ethos produce a certificate reflecting the sum of attendee’s credit from this seminar?

If there is no answer, then this is a desperate plea to develop this capability.

Yes, you can do this with credit roll-up. Add credit to each child and it will roll up to the parent. See documentation here.

Please open a ticket if you need help with specifics.

What if your course does not have a parent/child setup. Its just one course record?

  1. Create a course relationship.
  2. Under course settings of the parent course select Credit Rollup.
  3. Set the minimum number of children required for completion of the parent.
  4. Enable the credits on the children and parent.
  5. Save course.

Thanks for your replies. It’s a little more complicated…

We have different types of credit in each child, so on the parent certificate we need to indicate the total number of credits achieved for each type of child credit. For example, let’s say a course has 20 total hours made up of 10 category A and 10 category B. If the user completed 2 A hours and 1 B hour, the certificate should indicate 3 hours completed composed of 2 A and 1 B hour. My understanding is that the only way that we can get close to this on the parent certificate is to use the roll-up token that displays the total possible number of parent credits (20) with a list of individual achieved child credits below. The current solution looks like this:

Parent Course 20 hours
Course One 1 Category A hour
Course Two 1 Category A hour
Course Three 1 Category B hour

What that leaves the attendee with is the implication that s/he completed 20 hours, since that is the very first line shown. It does not show a total number of actual hours achieved, either in sum or by category. What would be ideal would be a token that displays something like:

Parent Course 3 total hours completed consisting of
2 Category A hours
1 Category B hour

or even just listing the individual courses without the parent total at the top:

Course One 1 Category A hour

Have you tried the [course-report:course-relationships-tree] token?

Ezra,

Yes. That is the token that displays this:

Parent Course 20 hours
Course One 1 Category A hour
Course Two 1 Category A hour
Course Three 1 Category B hour

Understood. I’ll forward this to @Scott.Kuchinski on the product team for review.

Thanks, Ezra.

Another reasonable configuration would be

Parent Course 3 total hours completed consisting of
Course One 1 Category A hour

Course Two 1 Category A hour
Course Three 1 Category B hour
