Live Display allows anyone hosting an in-person event to showcase campaign activity in real-time on a TV, projector screen, or tablet. Live Display also allows event hosts to encourage attendees to donate using Text-to-Donate and Scan-to-Donate.

Campaign stats, goal progress, and the supporter feed will update in real time as donations are made. Note: the supporter feed will only show donations and not ticket purchases.

👉 FYI: For a goal bar to be displayed you will need to enable the goal bar on your Campaign. Learn how in our help article about using the goal bar.

For a text-to-donate box to be displayed, you will need to set up a text-to-donate keyword and be a verified non-profit.

Can I hide everything?

  • Yes, you can. If you did this, only the campaign name would show.

  • This is a great way to display your screen before the event begins so no activity shows yet.
