There are two options for using Alyce and Vidyard. 

  1. Campaign-based Gifting Video: one default video for all gifts sent from this campaign
  2. Individual Gift-Based Video: one personal video added on a per-gift basis

  • From the Alyce Dashboard, navigate to the upper righthand corner, click the yellow "🎁Send a Gift” 
  • Use the open text field under “Who are you sending this invite to?” to enter the name of the person to whom you’d like to send a gift.

If you don’t already have your contact saved in Alyce, click “Create New Contact” and add the following information:

  • As soon as your Campaign is selected, Alyce will start gathering information on the contact you've selected.
