Fundraisers that have added team fundraising feature a participant center which allows users to obtain information and updates about the campaign’s success. The participant center’s focus is to provide resources for those helping to raise funds (for example, participants walking in a walk-a-thon, or those helping to sell raffle tickets). This is different from the main fundraising page, which gives donors information about making a donation and how their contribution will benefit your cause.
By default, the participant center button is on the main fundraising page, which allows anyone who visits the page to access the participant center. They will be able to see leaderboards, registrations, and prizes for participants.
Participant centers have their own link which can be customized. (Learn more here.) The participant center link can be promoted to an audience who might want to join the campaign to raise funds for your organization. The link to the fundraising page, on the other hand, can be promoted to an audience who would want to participate through donations.
Some organizers do not want donors to see this information. For example, organizers might not want to confuse donors who are just there to make a donation, or they might want to hide leaderboards and prizes being awarded to campaign participants. In this case, they can remove the link to the participant center from the main page.
Here’s how to remove the participant center link on the main fundraising page:
- Click on My Campaigns in the left menu.
- If you have chosen list view, click on the title of the campaign. If you have chosen grid view, click on the campaign image.
- Click Edit Fundraiser.*
- Click Participant Center in the timeline at the top.
- Scroll down until you see the box entitled 'Do you want a participant center button added to your campaign page?'
- Check the box next to 'No, participants should only be able to access the participant center if they have a direct link'.
- Click SAVE at the bottom of the page.
Note: Terminology on these buttons may be different according to the terminology that you’ve chosen for your campaign.
