Adding a list of Top Participants & Top Teams by Category

In addition to adding the list of Top Participants and Top Teams to the category Welcome 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 category 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 Categories.
  3. Click Profile next to the category 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 across the entire category.
    • 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 across the entire category.
    • 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 20 top participants change "Count=10" to "Count=20" in the HTML, iframe tag or JSON code.

You can also embed lists for each individual Pledge-a-thon.
