Setting Up A New Auction

Whether this is your first auction or your 5th, you will need to start by creating a new auction.


To create a new auction you will go to the Setup/Options menu and choose Auctions.

Here you will see the list of all of your previous auctions. If this is your first one, you will just see the Add Auction link.


In the rows, you see several links to choose from. By choosing Insert Before, you will have the new auction placed before this one on the list and the Add Auction Screen will appear, which is pictured below. The Up and Down links will move the Auction up or down the list.


If you choose Download, you will get an Excel list of all of the items in that particular auction.


To Add a New Auction, click on the Add Auction link.

Enter your Auction Title and be sure it is something you can remember. Also, please enter the Auction Date and the Begin and End times. This will guarantee that you have a support person on call the night of your auction. At least 10 days advanced notice is required.


If you plan on working on this new auction, you will want to check the box to make it the default auction. When checked, this is the auction that solicitors will be in when they log in to the site. Also, it will also show at the top right of your screen with a link beside to change to a different auction if desired.
