Causeview Impact Designer allows you to create and customize both forms and pages. A form is used to capture data from your supporters, that is then subsequently sent to the payment gateway (for payment processing form) and to Causeview/Salesforce (CRM). A form can be embedded either on a page on your own website or an Impact page.
An Impact page is a web page that is hosted on Impact Designer and includes an embedded form of your choice. This is an ideal option if you want to easily and quickly design a page on your own without having to worry about involving a web designer or hosting the page.

- Form Setup - specify which form you would like to embed on the page as well as the form display type (vertical vs. wizard).
- Form Overrides - specify an appeal and fund that you would like the donations allocated to. If you prefer to use the allocation setting that is specified on the form itself, then set the form override to "No Appeal Override" and "No Fund Override".
Creating a New Impact Page

2. Give the page a name and click on Create New Page.
3. The Impact Page Designer will open where you can now customize your page.
