How to Create Certificates by Customizing the Report.html File

Article Last Updated Apr 04, 2017

Articulate apps don't currently support certificates of completion. We generally see this as a function of learning management systems (LMSs). However, if you're not using an LMS, you may be able to modify the report.html file in your published output to make it look like a certificate.

Modifying the Report.html File

The report.html file is used for the print-results feature in Storyline and Quizmaker. You can modify the report.html file in your published output to look the way you want. You can even make it resemble a certificate.

You'll need HTML coding skills to use this technique. Also, be aware that we don't provide support for modifying published output in this manner. If you need help, we recommend posting in the forums to see how others have incorporated certificates into their courses.

The following video demonstration uses Quizmaker, but the same method also works for Storyline. After publishing your Storyline project, find the report.html file in the story_content folder of your published output.
