BIDS allows you to create activities where guests can then make donations. Here are a few example of how you can use activities:
You can view the list of currently existing activities by clicking the "List" button next to the "Activities" section on the "Configuration" page. Here is an example:
The above image shows the previously created activities. In the upper-right corner, there is a "Add Item" button. Each row in the list provides an option to edit (pencil icon on the left) and delete (red x icon on the right) each activity.
Only "Admin" and "Owner" users can create, edit and delete activities.
Clicking the delete option show a confirmation box. Deleted activities cannot be recovered.
Clicking the edit option (pencil icon) or the "Add Activity" button shows a similar form that allows you to update / create an activity. Here is the update form:
Each activity provide a page (link in the third column in the list above), that shows a live thermometer for the activity. This provides an elegant way for guests to view the status of the activity. Here is an example thermometer page:
This is an active page in that it is updated as automatically as new donations are made. The thermometer level is adjusted to reflect the total donations of all guests. Guests who donate, are highlighted in a scrolling list. Guest who donate via the mobile application can elect to be anonymous in the list.
