Customizing The Giving Tuesday Website
During the Create Event process for Giving Tuesday a default event website is created to provide the essentials for most organizations.
There are several ways you can configure a Giving Tuesday event. Most of the default website elements you will not want to edit. However, there are several elements you can adjust if needed.
The website will have a "Home" page and several system-generated pages by default. Please see the Website section of the User Guide for more detailed information.
The Header section of the website contains a banner and a default menu.
# Header Banner Image
The header image can be changed, although, if changed, the default image will no longer be available for the site. See Image for more details about this element.
# Header Menu
At the top of the page is a Countdown element; a custom Target time set to the end of the day for Giving Tuesday 2022.
The Countdown Title is in the Targets setting. To change the title, click the Configure button and modify the text as needed. Seefor more details.
Click Save if you have made changes to close the pop-up window, or click Cancel if you do not want to save your changes or to close the pop-up window.
A Donation Element, configured as a Wide Item Card, with multiple donation amounts, as well as an open Amount field, is inserted by default to allow you donors to make their donations.
The default image can be modified by clicking the Select Image button. This will open a Choose Image view to select an image from. See the Cash Donation Mode section of the Donation Element page for more information. More information on Donation Levels is also available.
A Progress Tracker element using the Thermometer Type is added to show how well your Giving Tuesday event is progressing. The default options for this element include the Title "Your donation has the power to change the world."
If the Target Amount field is blank, the element will use the event's fundraising "target amount." This value would be set at the Auction Details level.
You can quickly and easily change the goal amount for your Giving Tuesday event and set other relevant information for the Thermometer element to help show your visitors how successful your fundraiser is.
The Total Income, a commonly used option, is selected as the Amount Source for the element.
