Our department make a lot of attendance certificates, for events we run, and we waste a lot of work typing attendance lists and sending them by email. Most of the public are students are from my institution, and we can get a list of names and email address. We make about 1.500 certificates by year.

We are thinking about using a event system, but I'm having trouble to find one that makes certificates and don't cost thousand of dollars.

Anyone have a suggestion? A better solution?

    This doesn't seem like it's really about academia, as stated in the FAQ, and it is also a shopping question which is also explicitly called out as off topic in the faq. – scrappedcola Mar 1 '18 at 20:05
  • Oh, sorry. Maybe I can edit to make less "shopping question". As making attendance certificates is a part of many events, like conferences, I assumed the question to be on topic. – Cochise Mar 1 '18 at 20:10
  • But it still doesn't really fit the topics as listed academia.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic – scrappedcola Mar 1 '18 at 20:21

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it would fit better at software recommendations. – aparente001 Mar 2 '18 at 2:26

I suggested in my comment that you could search on Stack Overflow for a mailmerge or vba solution.
