How to accept and share Credentials I earn automatically?

You can set your Digitalme.Credly account to automatically accept and share Credentials you receive. This is achieved using the "Trusted Issuer" and "AutoShare" settings.

Automatically Accept Credit from "Trusted Issuers":  

When you receive Credentials you have the option to mark the person or organisation who gave you the credential as a "Trusted Issuer". You'll see the option upon initially accepting or later managing any accepted credentials. Credentials received from Trusted Issuers is automatically accepted. For example, if you receive credential from a museum you visit or a school you attend, you can set the museum or school to be "Trusted Issuers".  That way, when you receive new credentials from them, you will not need to click the "Accept" button each time. 

Automatically Place Accepted Credit into Personal Categories: 

In addition, when accepting or managing credentials, you have the option to place each credential into one or more personal categories you create. When you Trust an Issuer, you can also set the categories into which credentials from that issuer should be sorted. This makes it easy for your credentials from the museum or school to get automatically placed in your "Museum" or "Education" categories, for example. (You can later change or add categories, even for automatically accepted and sorted credentials.)  

Automatically Share Credit to Linked Social Networks:

The "AutoShare" feature lets you automatically post new credentials you receive to social networks you specify. Visit your Account Settings area from the user menu at the top right corner of the site. Mouse over any social network linked to your Digitalme.Credly account to see "Edit Settings". From there you can set your preferences so that:

  • all new credentials you accept go to the selected social network;  -or- 
  • new credentials from select personal categories go to the selected social network

Credentials received from issuers you mark as "Trusted" will be automatically accepted and categorised according to your settings, and once accepted will be sent to social networks according to your Auto Share settings.

Here's an example of how this works:  

You receive credentials from a museum you visit, and designate that museum as a Trusted Issuer with all credentials they issue being automatically accepted and sorted in your personal "Museum" category. You visit your Account Settings and set the Auto Share settings for Facebook to automatically share accepted credentials from your Museum category to Facebook. Now whenever that museum gives you credentials, it will automatically be posted to your Facebook page. (Whereas credentials from another issuer that you have not yet trusted, will await your acceptance in your Digitalme.Credly inbox; and you can decide how and where you'd like to share it on a case by case basis.)
