Campaigns

Joom Donation allows you to create donation campaigns, set Goal, Start Date, End Date and track the progress of these donation campaigns (how much money has been donated). In the front-end of your site, donors will see list of campaigns and can choose to donate for the campaign they want. However, please note that campaigns is optional. If you just want to have a simple donation form to receive donation from site visitors, no need to create campaigns.

Campaigns List

Go to Joom Donation -> Campaigns to access to categories section of Joom Donation. You will see a list of categories (parent, child):

In this list, you are able to sort Campaigns using Drag & Drop feature. This is new feature of Joomla 3.x.
On the page, you will see list of campaigns which you created and you will be able to add/edit/delete/publish/unpublish campaigns using the buttons on toolbar. To create a campaign, you can simply click on New button in the toolbar and fill-in necessary information:

Create new/edit a campaign

You can click on the Edit/New button on the toolbar OR click on the category name on the list to create new/edit a category.
