# Choosing Items (updated)

In a number of places, you are able to select some of your items to work with using the Choose Items window, for example:

In all of these cases, the same control is used to select the items:

An example from a "Copy Items" selection options.

The default for the item chooser is to show all the items. The current set of selected items is shown in the main part of the item chooser. You can page through the items using the buttons at the bottom of the window if there are more items selected than fit on a single page.

You can adjust the set of items by clicking on the options icon.

NOTE: the current selected filter will be shown under the "Choose Items" window label.

# All Items

The All Items filter is the default option with several more pre-configured options available from the drop-down list.

# Specific Item Types

The Specific Item Types filter defaults to the "Biddable" item types (see What Are Biddable Items?).

This filter allows you to Choose Items based on their type.

# Baskets

This filter selects those items that have the Is basket lot/package? option enabled in their Summary tab Options section.

# Items Based On Tags

This lets you select items that match a specific tag. If multiple tags are set, any items matching any of the specified tags will be selected. You can also invert the test to select only those items that do not match the tags. See Tags for more information on their uses.

# Specific Item Categories

The Specific Item Categories filter will allow you to select multiple categories from those available in the event.

From the drop-down list you would highlight and then click the + category button to select that specific category.

This would then display the items based on this category.

You can now continue to select additional categories using the same process.

The two example categories were used to select any item in either category.

# Selected Items

This option lets you build up a set of items by selecting them one at a time.

Click the item drop-down and select the item(s) one at a time. They will appear in the list below.

You can remove specific items using the red x icon on their row.

# Search For Items

This filter lets you enter a search term and selects the matching items.

If there is a specific item you don't want then you can use the red x next to it to remove it.


# Ordering Items

In some cases, it is helpful to be able to influence the order the items are listed in. Although this may not matter as much when you copy items from one event to another but when printing forms it can be helpful, for example, to sort the items by their Location rather than their Item#.

If you want to adjust the sort order, click on the sorting icon (3 lines) then choose the field to sort by.
