New WidgetMakr Features Released This Week
You asked, and we listened.
The next time you log into WidgetMakr, it might look a little different. This week, a new version was deployed that includes several new features requested by the WidgetMakr community.
Never ask for too much or too little again! Through the Spark Giving Matrix®, WidgetMaker’s innovative 1-click donation system, you can customize your forms for each individual donor based on his or her previous giving history.
With this new WidgetMakr update, you’ll be able to archive older or inactive widgets to streamline and organize your dashboard. Links to archived widgets will automatically forward to the embeddable donation forms currently in use.
Need to send several fundraising emails or embed your widget on different landing pages? Now you can save time by connecting several source codes to the same widget.
Simply add this parameter, ?sc=YourCode, to the end of the widget’s URL and all donations made through that widget will be tagged with the source code you specified.
Other examples of source codes could be “?sc=Facebook”, ” ?sc=blog” or ” ?sc=homepage”.
Preview and test your widgets before they go live with the new test mode feature. To do this, simply add the parameter, ?testmode=yes, to the end of the widget’s URL.
Test mode allows you to test the functionality of the widget before embedding it on a website or waiting for a donor to make a gift.
Other Updates Include:
- Standardized data imports and exports with a new API
WidgetMakr’s API has now standardized the fields it pulls in from typical donation forms, which makes it easier for developers to use. A second API is now available to pull in custom data that you might need.
- Enhanced user experience
Updates were made to the way data is formatted on our forms and on mobile devices in order to give your donors the best giving experience possible.
Please note that none of these updates will affect your widgets or access to WidgetMakr.com. If you have a question, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
