trigger certificate

Community Participant

As a Catalog subaccount admin, I sometimes have students who complete one of our courses outside of the days allotted.  This means that they don't get a certificate.  Is it possible to trigger Catalog to create the certificate? I've tried editing the section date and resaving the catalog and course in Catalog admin.  Will it trigger if the student goes back and "completes"  the module requirements again after I've changed the dates?  Or is there another way?
