Before setting up your Campaign, you’ll want to make sure you’ve set up your account by navigating to Account Settings in the top left corner of your Dashboard. Your Account Settings act as a template for any Campaigns you create, so it’s always a great place to start.

Note: any template details that you add in the Account Settings, such as a Cover Photo, can be overridden at the Campaign level.

Setting up your Events Campaign

Every Givebutter campaign has its own Campaign Manager and customizable features that are managed from the Dashboard. To edit your campaign details, click on the Campaigns tab on the left-hand side of your Dashboard. Next, select the edit icon next to the desired campaign and start by reviewing the Details tab.
