Activity Landing Page Progress Section

This article will guide you through what you can do with a Progress section of designing and working with the Activity Landing Page (previously called the Event Page). If you are just starting in designing your event page, you will likely want to start here.

Include a Progress section in your Activity Landing PagePage with a dynamic amount raised, a progress circle that fills as you get closer to your goal, and a donor wall to thank all your donors right on your Activity Landing Page.

Progress Section Example

If you will have more than 1,000 live viewers during your virtual event, please contact your Account Manager a week in advance so we can advise on the setup and preparation for your event and schedule complementary technical monitoring during your event.

The Progress section is an optional section you can add to your Activity Landing Page. With it, you can have an embedded web page equivalent of your Fundraising Thermometer right on your Activity Landing Page, including a donor wall. In fact, the Progress section uses the same information from your Thermometer page.

Note: the Progress section updates when you refresh the page. It does not instantly refresh like the Fundraising Thermometer page.

You can personalize the Progress section to include or exclude the progress bar and the donor wall so you can create the exact experience you desire. 

Note: To use the Progress section correctly, the Activity Landing Page must be created in your Text-to-Donate activity as it pulls the donation details from the donation form. Think of it as a different design of a Fundraising Thermometer - it must be used from the same activity.

Progress Section Example

Add the Progress Section

The Progress section is an optional addition to your Activity Landing Page. To add it, click the Add Section button in the upper right of your Activity Landing Page designer and choose Progress.

Add Section Menu

You will need to name the section, and then you can initially place it in the order you desire. If you want to move it to a different part of the page, you can do so later as described here

Add Progress Section

Progress Section Initial

Now that you have a new Section, you can personalize it.

Progress Section Design

Display Section

If you decide against using the Progress section, you can hide it with the Show/Hide switch.

You can also delete the section by clicking the Trashcan icon if you decide not to use it at all. If you delete it, you will be shown a confirmation box before it completes the deletion 

Delete Warning


You don't need to use a title, so the Show/Hide switch starts disabled. If you want a title, switch it to Show.

You can edit the Title to be anything you wish and include different formatting. You can also choose other variables from the drop-down list. 

Progress Circle

If you don't want the Progress Circle, you can hide it. Maybe you just want a donor wall. If you hide the Progress Bar, then the Donor wall will automatically be centered in this section.

Otherwise, you can edit the Progress Circle by clicking the Edit icon.

Edit Progress Circle

Here, you can choose to show the goal with the On/Off switch, and choose a goal amount.

The initial goal amount is initially copied from the amount you set in the Fundraising Thermometer section as you create the Activity Landing Page. At that point, the goals no longer sync and you can set either to whatever amount you want.

If you have not set up the goal in the Fundraising thermometer, then the initial amount for the Progress Bar will be set to $10,000.

You can show or hide the Total Collected amount.

You can show or hide the Donor count.

Make sure to click Save if you make any changes.

Again, the Total Collected and the Donor count are calculated from within this activity, so it is a best practice to always create your Activity Landing Page from your main Text-to-Donate activity.

Donor Wall

If you don't want the Donor wall, you can hide it with the Show/Hide switch. If you hide the Donor wall, then the Progress Bar will automatically be centered in this section.

Otherwise, you can edit the Donor Wall by clicking the Edit icon.

Edit Donor Wall

You can choose to show the donors' names and or the amount they have donated.

Make sure to click Save if you make any changes.

While the Goal in the Progress Bar section is only initially tied to the goal in the Fundraising thermometer, the actual donors and the amount they've donated will be the same for both, if you're using both, including any offline donations.

Include In Totals

This allows you to determine what you want to be calculated in your Progress Circle. It will always show actual donations. 

By default, it will also include both:

Pledges: those who have texted in an amount, but have not completed their donation on the donation page

Offline: those who have donated by check or by cash (such as through a donor card at an in-person event or through email for a virtual, or any event) and you have entered them using the Enter Offline Donations category on the left. You can enter them individually or in bulk.

Edit Element - Include in Totals

We generally recommend you leave both Pledges and Offline donations turned on as it creates a more dynamic experience, but this can depend on the design and focus of your event.


The Message section is usually used to alert supporters to the Donate button so they can affect the progress, but it could be anything from thanking your donors to cheering the progress so far to motivating people to donate.

If you do not want to include a message, you can use the Show/Hide switch to remove it from your Event Page.


While the button is listed generically, so can be used for anything, in the Progress section, it is primarily used for Donations so the donor can see their name on the Donor Wall and see the progress increase.

If you do not want to include the Button, you can use the Show/Hide switch to remove it from your Activity Landing Page.

Click the Edit icon to change the label on the button and to which form it will go.
