Creating a deep link to your event

You can create direct links to charity events you've listed on Virgin Money Giving and add them to your own website and any emails. This will make it quicker and easier for fundraisers to set up pages for your event by pre-filling all of the event details for them.

To create a deep link simply follow the steps below.

Step 1
Sign into your charity's account and make a note of your 'Account ID' number which you'll find in the top right of the page.

Write it as: charityId=

For example: charityId=456
(Please note upper case 'I' only)

Step 2
Click on 'Events' in the left menu and then click 'Update event'.
Step 3
Make a note of your 'Event ID' number – it’s in the last column of the event you'd like to link to.

Write it as: eventId=

For example: eventId=123
(Please note upper case 'I' only)

Step 4
To create a deep link, simply use this address:
http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-web/fundraiser/fundraiserEventsDeepLink.action?

Then on the end of it add:
(your event ID)&(your charity ID)

So it should look like this:
http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-web/fundraiser/fundraiserEventsDeepLink.action?eventId=123&charityId=456

That's it.
