Where do I create my web acknowledgments? | Vision2 Help Center

Customize the message donors will see on the website at the time they submit their gift


Every giving opportunity on your website requires a web acknowledgement. Web acknowledgements are created on the giving source of each designation. A default giving source is automatically created for each designation you create on the Finance tab.


You can access acknowledgements in two ways:

From the Designation:

  • Login to the V2 admin portal and navigate to: Finance > Designations > click the designation type (example: Funds) > Click the Designation Name link

  • Scroll down to the Marketing section and click the Default Giving Source link


From the Marketing tab:

  • Login to the V2 admin portal and navigate to: Marketing > Web Sources > Giving Sources or Pledge Sources

  • Click the Pencil next to the giving/pledge source you need to edit


Once you are on the Acknowledgement page:

  • In the Acknowledgements section, click the Edit button under Web

  • Click the Preview button

  • Click the Edit Template button

  • Click on the Body tag at the bottom of the form

  • This is the default message that will appear on the web page when the donor successfully submits their gift. You will want to keep this message short.

  • Under the edit box, you will find a list of template data that you can use to personalize the message your donor receives. For example: You can add the donor’s first name to the thank you line by placing the following between the words you and for: , #,

  • Click Preview and Save

  • Verify that the acknowledgement appears as you expected

  • Click Save & Exit
