Step 2 Create Permission Questions
Display Text for Permission Question – Enter the permission question your registrants will see. We have added in default content (as seen below) but feel free to edit to suit your needs. If this is left blank, the question will not appear and by default no permission will be given.
- Top Individuals: requesting permission to publish the registrants own name on the scoreboard.
- Proxy Registrant – Top Individuals: requesting permission to publish the proxy registrants name on the scoreboard. (Register Others)
- Top Teams: requesting permission to publish the teams name on the scoreboard.
- Set opt-in as the default for the scoreboard permission question, put a check mark in this box if you want the default to be that permission is given unless the registrant unchecks the box when registering.
Scoreboard Display Name
- If enabled, registrants are asked to type in a Display Name for the scoreboard on the Additional Information page during the initial registration process.
Tip: Administrators may change a Scoreboard Display Name by editing the registrant or donor’s information under the Relationships tab.
Step 3 Enable Scoreboards
Below Field Name, click the name of the scoreboard you want to set up. (A scoreboard is available for individuals and teams for the event as a whole and individuals and teams for each location. You will need to repeat the setup process for each scoreboard you enabled.)
Next, configure your scoreboard settings.
- Beside Display on Start Page, choose Enabled.
- Beside Total Number of Display Items, choose how many top individuals to show on the scoreboard. You can show up to 100 individuals.
- You can choose the top fundraisers according to the amount raised and can include Verified (includes only donations made online) or Total (includes donations made online and pledged donations).
- You can set your "Anonymous Text" for those who do not want to appear on the scoreboard. We usually recommend "Friend of Charity Name", "Proud Fundraiser",etc.
- Tip: Up to 100 fundraisers can appear on your scoreboard.
- If you are enabling registrants or teams to have a personal web page for the event, you might want to consider adding a donor listing to that page. It causes a list of the donor names and amounts to appear on the registrant’s web page (or team web page) and now the event home page
- You have the option to allow donors to choose whether their name should appear or not. If they choose not to have their name appear, the donation appears anyway with “Anonymous” as the donor and you can customize this label as well
- When registrants enter offline pledges, they can choose to include these donors in the donor listing if they wish.
- You can also choose whether to display verified (paid online or verified by you) or all donations (this includes pledges)

In the Donor Listing section, click Manage.
Step 2 Enable Donor Listings
First, select which Donor Listings you wish to enable.

- Beside Display permission questions to Registrant entering pledges, click Enabled if you want to allow registrants who are entering offline pledges to choose whether to allow the donor’s name to appear on the web page. If you choose Disabled, donors who make their donations offline will not be included in the scrolling donor list.
- Below Donor Listing Type, choose whether to include all donations or only verified donations in the scrolling donor list.
Step 3 Customize Permission Questions
Tip: If you are creating a bilingual event, permission questions are required for both languages.
- Beside Donor Listing Name Permission Question, change the text of the default permission question if required.
- Beside Donor Listing Donation Amount Permission Question, change the text of the default permission question if required.
- Beside Set opt-in as the default for Name for the Donor Listing permission question, put a check mark in this box if you want the permission question to be checked. Donors will have to uncheck the box if they do not want their name published.
- Beside Set opt-in as the default for Donation amount for the Donor Listing permission question, put a check mark in this box if you want the permission question to be checked. Donors will have to uncheck the box if they do not want their donation amount published.
- Beside Anonymous Text, type what should appear in the list if the donor has not given permission to publish their name. (e.g., “Friends of [organization name]”)
- Check the box Allow for donors to set their own Donor Listing Name to allow donors to customize what will appear in the scroll.
Tip: Administrators may change a donor's display name by editing the donor’s information under the Relationships tab.
