Parent and Child Project Hierarchy
IgnitionDeck Crowdfunding supports Child/Parent relationships between crowdfunding projects. In this scenario, a child-project's funds raised count toward its parent-project's fundraising goal, as well as its own.
IDCF Projects can have up to three levels of hierarchy (Child, Parent, and Grandparent Projects). All Projects in a hierarchy inherit the total amount raised below them in the chain and count it toward their "amount raised."
In this example, the Child Project has raised $25 of its own, the Parent has raised $10 of its own, and the Grandparent Project has raised $10 of its own. The Parent and Grandparent inherit the amount raised from the projects below them in the hierarchy, so the Parent Project displays $35 and the Grandparent Project displays $45.
To create a hierarchy between projects:
- Go to the Edit Screen for the project you would like to assign as a child project.
- In in "Page Attributes" section, on the right side of the screen, select a the project you would like to the parent from the "Project Parent" selector
- Update your project.
