Can I convert a sponsorship or registration fee to a donation, so that it can be reflected on a participant's thermometer?
Synopsis You are using a Pledge subscription and wish to see a sponsorship sale or registration fee reflected on a participant's thermometer.
Solution In order to include sponsorships or registration fees in your participants' thermometers (on their fundraising pages), you will need to follow these steps:
Go to Reports -> Orders.
There, click Actions, View or the Order Number in question to view the order details.
On the next screen locate the 'Pledge Conversion' area. There, you will find a 'Select Participant' box, and a button that says 'Convert to Pledge'.
Select the participant you want to assign the pledge to, by clicking on the lookup icon . On the window that pops up search the participant to assign the pledge by Weblink / Nickname and click on the participant name to select it.
Press the 'Convert to Pledge' button.
NOTE: In order to assign the pledge to a participant, they will need to have a weblink/fundraising page.
