# Auction Details

The Auction Details page lets you modify the information about the event.


# Summary

# Auction

  • Auction Name
    The name of the Auction/Event itself.
  • Event Date
    Enter the date the event is taking place. If there isn't a single day then use the start date.
  • Archive Date
    Enter the date after which this event will no longer be visible online to bidders (you can still see it though).
  • Fundraising Target
    Amount of money you hope to raise in this event.


If you have multiple auctions in the same organization, the system will display the Auction Dashboard based on the date defined on the auctions' SUMMARY tabs. For example, an event in the last week is shown if there is one, otherwise the next upcoming event is shown.

# Notes

This section can be used for making notes about the auction/event and are not publicly visible.

# Advanced Options

The following Advanced Options are available:

  • Next assigned item#
    The system will attempt to use this number as the number item#.
  • Item# template
    Template used to format item numbers. Leave blank for default.
  • Next assigned bidder#
    The system will attempt to use this number as the number bidder#
  • Bidder# template
    Template used to format bidder numbers. Leave blank for default.

These two settings (item# and template) let you change the number that will be assigned automatically next time an item, or bidder, is created without a number being provided. You can adjust these if you have renumbered the items/bidders or, for example, if you want bidders registering online to receive a high number. You do not have to guarantee that the number you specify is "free", if it is taken the system will keep looking for a new number.

You can use these two settings to influence the style of item and bidder numbers assigned. The syntax of the template should include { { n } } (without spaces) in the place you want the number to appear. For example, to allocate all bidder numbers as Bnnn use the template:


There are a couple of formatting filters you can apply. To pad all item (or bidder) numbers to 3 digits with leading zeros use:

{{n | pad3}}

This will create bidder numbers 001, 002, 003, etc. There are also filters for pad4, pad5 and pad6 to pad to those lengths.

You can adjust the item#, or bidder#, increment value (from the default of 1) to your preferred value with the following:

{{n | times:10}}

The numbers would then be allocated as 10, 20, 30, ...
