How do I authorise another person or organisation to issue credentials I have created?

When creating or editing a badge, you may notice "Allow others to give this credit". 

"Authorised" badges are credentials created by one user that have been delegated to be issued by another user.

As a Premier or higher member, you have the ability to grant one or more users the power to issue any of your badges. Any member can be authorised to issue your badges (those you authorise do not need to be Premier or higher accounts).

Here are the step by step instructions. 

First, keep in mind that those you wish to authorise to issue your badge must already have a Digitalme.Credly individual or organisation account.


In the top left, start typing the name of a Digitalme.Credly member until recognised, and then select the name from the drop-down list. Or, enter the exact email address of another Digitalme.Credly member. You can also choose from contacts already listed by hovering over their names and clicking "Add". Users who appear on the right side of the window will be authorised once you save the changes in the box (click "save" button), and then "Save" the badge in the main badge builder.

To de-authorise a specific user from issuing a badge, click "Edit Authorised Users" in the badge builder area for the select badge, or uncheck "Allow others to give this credit" and "Save" the changes.

Those you Authorise will see your badge in their "Our Credit" > "Created" tab, under "all" or "Authorised". Authorised badge issuers cannot edit or delete your badges; they can only issue them. They will have access to your Tags when issuing an Authorised badge.

This feature is available to Premier and higher level members.
