Activity Ticker Settings

The Activity Ticker is a scrolling list of up to ten randomly selected Activities and Interests (Opportunities) that appears on your opportunities search page (Configuration >> Links for Website).

  • Show Featured – Turns this ticker on and off
  • Include Interests – In addition to showing publicly viewable Activities you can choose whether or not you would like General Interests included. Because General interests are used to advertise opportunities, this is typically selected.
