Adding a list of Top Participants & Top Teams by Pledge-a-thon

In addition to having the list of Top Participants and Top Teams appear automatically on your Description page, you may also want to embed these automatically-generated rankings elsewhere on your website or in promotional emails. With javascript, you can also programatically work with the data in your own custom applications, defining the number of people or teams to be included in your list.

The list of Top Participants and Top Teams will be calculated based on total confirmed and pending donations entered into the system. The lists will be automatically updated approximately every 15 minutes

To add a Top Participants or Top Teams list for the Pledge-a-thon elsewhere on your website, email or custom application:

  1. Click Pledge-a-thon to view the main menu of this service.
  2. From the Setup section, click Manage Pledge-a-thons.
  3. Click Profile next to the Pledge-a-thon of interest.
  4. In the Top Participants section, you can copy three different types of code which you can use to display the list of Top Participants for this Pledge-a-thon.
    • HTML. Use HTML to embed the list into your web pages or promotional emails.
    • iFrame Tag. Use the iframe tag to embed the list into your web pages or promotional emails, wrapping the HTML code in an iframe.
    • JSON. Use JSON with javascript to programatically work with the data in your own custom applications.
  5. Similarly, in the Top Teams section, you can copy three different types of code which you can use to display the list of Top Teams for this Pledge-a-thon.
    • HTML. Use HTML to embed the list into your web pages or promotional emails.
    • iFrame Tag. Use the iframe tag to embed the list into your web pages or promotional emails, wrapping the HTML code in an iframe.
    • JSON. Use JSON with javascript to programatically work with the data in your own custom applications.
  6. By changing the code, you can change the number of top participants or top teams displayed on the list, which by default is set to the top ten (10).
    • Within the code itself, modify the count amount to another number.  For example, to display a list of 25 top participants change "Count=10" to "Count=25" in the HTML, iframe tag or JSON code. Or if you want to include all current & future participants, you can change the count to "Count=1000" or more, to display your full list of fundraisers.
    • The list will only include participants and teams that have received 1 or more donations.

If you have multiple Pledge-a-thons grouped into a Category, you can also embed lists for all Participants or Teams across the entire category of Pledge-a-thons.
