I can't choose to manually control how free certificates are issued
OpenLearning certificates get issued automatically upon completion.
If I want to make sure students pass additional criteria before before they receive a certificate, there is currently no way to do this even if I want to do a manual process. I can't turn off the automatic issuing.
(Note this is for a free OL certificate)
This may not be a bug, but it feels like one (due to the complexity of the certificate system).
