How do I preview a Pledge-a-thon?

To preview the landing page of your draft Pledge-a-thon:

  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 Draft.
  4. Select the Pledge-a-thon you would like to preview and click Profile.
  5. Click Preview. The landing page of your Pledge-a-thon will appear as it will be displayed to the public, except that "&Preview=Y" will be added to the end of your Pledge-a-thon link to indicate that it is in Preview mode. Note that:
    • You will not be able to test the registration process or donation process in test mode. Instead you must activate the Pledge-a-thon before you can view the registration pages.

To preview your active Pledge-a-thon, including the registration form:

  1. Click Pledge-a-thon to view the Main Menu of this service.
  2. From the Setup section, click Manage Pledge-a-thons.
  3. Select the Pledge-a-thon you would like to link and click Profile.
  4. Locate the Main Pledge-a-thon Link, and copy the full http:// address (double click the URL link to highlight the text and right-click on the mouse selecting Copy).
  5. Open a fresh browser (not a second tab in the same browser) and paste the Main Pledge-a-thon Link into the second browser.
  6. Complete the form to test the registration process. However, it is important that you abort the process at the payment page (do NOT click Submit Order).
  • Your account is live. So if you would like to step through the registration process to test your form, please abort the process at the payment page. Otherwise, your registration will be processed and your account will be charged the transaction fees.
  • If you already have a web browser open displaying the old registration form, please close the browser and open a new browser so that you can see your changes to your online form. Otherwise, your browser session will still exist, continuing to show the old settings even though you have hit the refresh button.

    Hint: If the input fields are already filled out, this means that data continues to exist from the last session and you may not have the most recent version of your form. Just close all browsers and start again.
