What are "AutoShare" settings and how do I use them?

AutoShare lets you automatically post new Credit you receive to social networks you specify. 

AutoShare:  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 Credly account to see "Edit Settings". From there you can set your preferences so that:

  • all new Credit you accept go to the selected social network;  -or- 
  • new Credit from select personal categories go to the selected social network
  • AutoShare works in connection with two other Credly features: Personal Categories and Social Settings. Here's a little background on each, which helps explain how AutoShare works: 

    Personal Categories: When accepting or managing Credit, you have the option to place each Credit into one or more personal categories you create. Note that when you "Trust an Issuer", you can also set the categories into which Credit from that issuer should be sorted. This makes it easy for your Credit 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 Credit.)

    Social Settings: In your Account Settings area you can link your Credly account to one or more social networks, such as LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and Mozilla Backpack. By linking your account, you make it easier to post Credit to those sites and to connect with your contacts who are on both Credly and the respective social network.
