* How do my participants set up and customize their fundraising page?
Synopsis You want to know how your Pledge fundraising participants can set up and customize their fundraising pages.
Solution When your Pledge participants register on your website, a personal fundraising page will be auto-generated for them. It is important that administratorscreate a nice default fundraising page.
The personal fundraising page includes: a personal fundraising goal (which must be equal to or greater than theParticipant Goalset by the system administrator atPledge -> Settings), a personal statement, and up to 4 videos or images in any combination. Your participants will have the ability to edit their page to include personalized information in these areas.
If the participant wishes to edit their personal fundraising page, they will need to access theirParticipant Control Panel. This can be done by clicking theLoginlink in the upper right corner of your public website, and using theirusernameandpasswordcreated at the time of registration. Upon registration, if the participant continues to follow the links, they will be led to this area automatically.
Administrators can also access the Participant Control Panel of a participant, fromPeople -> Participants -> Action, Loginfor the participant in question.
Control Panel Instructions:
Log-in to theParticipant Control Panel, using your username and password.
The Control Panel will open toPersonal Settings->My Page->Settings.
In this area,you can edit your Personal Weblink, Fundraising Goal, and Estimated unit of effort (miles, etc.). A personal statement, pictures and videos can all be added here using the appropriate links.
