When it comes to fundraising, having a visual element that displays how much money is raised is a critical key to success for any charitable event! Sometimes, you may not know exactly how to start designing. Luckily, Tiltify has a simplified overlay that will get you out of edit mode and into fundraising mode!

Finding Overlays

Before you can implement our overlays, you have to find where they are!  On the left-hand side of your Campaign Dashboard, you will see the Overlay tab - click it! 




Elements of "The Default" overlay

Simple and easy has never been so simple and easy with the "Quick Start" overlay!

There are 4 main elements that are pre-loaded into the overlay:

  1. Classic Overlay – This overlay is placed defaulted to the top of the screen and stretches the entire way across. It contains the charity avatar and name, your progress bar, goal, the amount raised, and highlights the most recent and top donor interchangeable. You can edit different aspects of this, such as color and font by clicking “Classic Overlay” on the left.
  2. QR Code – This is a scannable QR code that is placed in the bottom left corner of the overlay. When people scan it, it will take them to the donation page of your campaign. The code can be moved and resized.
  3. Alert Box – This is an alert box that will populate donations as they appear. You can add gifs via the Giphy search box. It can also be set to trigger at the thresholds you specify. *Note: Test Donations will NOT appear on your Broadcast Software, only during design/editing within Tiltify.
  4. Event List – This will display the most recent donations that have been made towards your campaign. It can be configured as to how many events to display (default: 4)

Adding Overlays To Your Livestream


Once you have it to your liking, you will have to use a Browser/Webpage capture in order to use them! Getting it ready to go is a simple as the click of a button!


 

  1. You can rename your overlay if you have made any edits to it.
  2. If you make any changes to the overlay, you will click “save changes” to save them. This will reflect on the live overlay when updated.
  3. If you want to run a test while editing, click the “test donation” button. Make sure those changes are as awesome as you want them to be!
  4. When you’re satisfied and it’s saved, click the “copy overlay url” and, using your favorite streaming software, put the overlay as a browser source.


For OBS:


Create A New Browser Source



1. Create a new Source by clicking on the '+'.  
2. Select 'Browser' and name your source something you'll recognize. 
3. Click "OK" put copied URL in the URL bar. If needed, make the dimensions 1920 x 1080.




For XSplit:


Create a Webpage URL source



On the scene you wish to add the overlay to, click on "Add source" --> "Webpage..." in the bottom left-hand corner of XSplit. The URL will be the one you copied.





After pressing "OK" You will need to adjust the overlay. You can either: 
- Click and Drag the corner to stretch the overlay to fit the screen.

- Right Click the Overlay and change the custom resolution to: Width - The Width of your Livestream Resolution (Commonly 1920)         Height - At least 1080 to avoid any issues
