I’m not too familiar with automation options out there. I’m looking to send certificates to students who complete courses through Zapier. Does anyone know a way to do that which isn’t too complicated? I have courses on Thinkific but do not want to use Thinkific’s certificates since many of my students do my courses via USB as well.
I have a google sheets with their info and it is connected to my email sender via zapier. So I have the fields needed to fill in to the certificate.
I would like my students to receive the certificate in PDF form. I would much prefer a free option for the certificates themselves.
Thanks in advance!

@lea3365! If you head to our app directory and type in “PDF”, you should see a few apps pop up to help you with that file conversion. 🙂 https://zapier.com/apps
Thank you so much for this!
I followed until the PDF step!! How would I have the Google Docs switched to a PDF? There are apps that do that?
I don’t know of an app that creates certificates, specifically, but I think you can pull this off if you don’t mind a little DIY.
Trigger: Thinkific Course Completed
Action: Google Sheets Lookup Spreadsheet Row
Action: Google Docs Create Document from Template
Action: Create PDF
Action: Send Email
I hope this points you in the right direction! Please let me know if you have any other questions.
