Information Collection Settings

For every engagement on your Flipcause Campaigns, you'll be collecting and storing information from your supporters into your Flipcause Database. At the bare minimum, an email address and a first name will always be required, but there are many more types of data (fields) that you can collect from your supporters in a campaign. You can change these settings under Information Collection Settings.

These are located under Campaigns > Edit Campaign > Order Settings > Information Collection Settings.

In this section, you can choose whether to tailor the form to Businesses or Individuals (or both). This is helpful if your campaign is geared towards sponsors or other businesses, where the supporter is primarily a business or organization, rather than a single individual. By toggling this setting to Both, you allow your supporter to choose whether the contribution is recorded as a personal one or on behalf of an organization.

You can also choose whether to collect the Business Name, Middle Name, Last Name, Title & Suffix, Phone Number, Mailing Address of your supporter, as well as give them an option to leave a public message of support or join your organization's mailing list.

The Information Collection Settings section covers standard information you'd like to collect. If you'd like to ask anything else from your supporters, such as dietary preferences, shirt sizes, or anything else at all, you can create and insert Custom Fields into your campaign.
