Choosing your parameters

Once you have created your own internal ID, you will then be able to upload your file. Before you upload this, you can choose whether you want to include results with an expired certification, or without an expiration date. You may wish to do this if you have a property that needs reminding to be re-certified.

While you can choose to show low confidence matches, we don't recommend this as it will involve more manual reviewing.

You can also select which certifications you would like to map against, whether you are only looking for GSTC or Travalyst recognised certifications.
