Online Bidding: Appeal Board

From your Greater Giving Project Home, locate the Launch Appeal Board Display link on the right hand side. This launches a new tab with an interactive progress gauge that fills in as bidders donate towards your fundraising goal. The Appeal Display is defaulted to reflect the total amount raised during your special appeal and can be used to generate excitement and enthusiasm amongst your guests to help increase giving levels. Sponsor logos will scroll across the left of the screen.

Tip: You can also access the Appeal Board by going to Online Bidding Settings and clicking Launch​ located next to the Appeal Board URL.
