How often does Live Display update?

Live Display is designed to track and present contributions in nearly real time, especially at fundraising events. It can be made ready in minutes -- setup is as simple as plugging in a laptop with an internet connection -- and then updates every 2-3 seconds.

Made highly visible with a projector screen at in-person events, Live Display showcases your Text-to-Donate short code (44321) and unique campaign-specific text code to help drive a little friendly competition between donors. 

During virtual events, use screen-sharing functionality to show Live Display or have it positioned near the presenter during a livestream.

In all cases, updated totals include manually added offline donations and nonprofits have the option to show a progress meter and/or donor roll of recent contributions.

IMPORTANT NOTE: At present, Live Display is in open beta. Open beta signifies that a product or feature is stable and has passed enough internal testing for you to use. That said, there may be unanticipated hiccups related to the real-time nature of Live Display. Give Lively offers this product as is, without warranty, as per our Terms of Use.
