Widgets are functions that you add to your organisation’s website to give you additional web based features, e.g. online donation pages and forms. They are incredibly easy to add and your web master can add these features in minutes. Read more about Add-Ons and Website Widgets here.
Each website widget requires you to setup supporting documents that your website visitors will receive in response to an action taken, e.g. thank you for donation, thank you for signing-up. It’s important to have these documents ready when your website widgets are embedded by your web master to ensure your website visitors are engaged, providing an excellent supporter journey from the very first point of contact.
There are 4 Types of Website Widgets that require you to setup the following documents for each:
1. Donation Widget
- Donation Notice
- Website Donation Thank You
- Website Payment Membership Thank You
2. Volunteer Widget
- Visitor Book Thank You
- Website Registration Thank You
3. Subscribe Widget
- Website Join Thank You
- Website Renewal Thank You
4. Unsubscribe Widget
- Unsubscribe Confirmation
