# Video: Add a new auction
To create an auction, click Organization from the main Auction Dashboard.
If you have many organizations, make sure you are working in the correct organization account.
On the Organization dashboard, click Add Auction.
If the Add Auction button appears grayed out, you may not have the administrator privileges needed to access this function.
You can also click on Auction from the main Auction Dashboard and then click on the Add New Auction link in the sidebar of the Auction Details dashboard to create a new event.
The Add Auction window will appear. Enter the Auction Name and Event Date for the new event and click the Add Auction button at the top of the left sidebar.
The Event Date does not necessarily apply to the online event bidding times, these are set specifically under the Online Bidding settings or under specific item "override" times.
