During big fundraising moments, you can incorporate the pinger to make a sound every time you receive a donation! Just head over to your Dashboard Overview and scroll to the bottom of the page. Select a sound from the dropdown and keep that page open. Each time you get a donation, the sound will play!
You can even create custom pingers if you have a sound file. Our team is also happy to make custom pingers if we have the time! To use a custom pinger, just attach the URL parameter — the phrase that starts with a question mark and ends with a sound file, like .mp3 — to the end of your Dashboard web address, like this: https://secure.actblue.com/entities/33605/dashboard/?ping_url=https://s3.amazonaws.com/actblue-img/2018/gooooooooooal.mp3
Here are a few custom pingers we’ve made that anyone can use:
“A Star is Born”
To turn off a pinger that you selected in our dropdown menu, simply refresh your Dashboard page. To stop a custom pinger that you added via a URL parameter, delete everything after “dashboard/” in your Dashboard’s web address.
