The Home page provides information at a glance on the the Total Donations, Total In-Progress Bids, Total Closed Bids, and a total income Thermometer element.

# Live Auction
An example with the 'multi-item' option in use.
The Live Auction tab will mimic the same view as the Live Auction Bidding Section creates.
# Item Details
The Item Details page will open with a search option to view a specific item. Selecting the item will display its specific details and bid history, if bids have been placed for it.
# Send Notification
The Send Notification tab will allows you to send messages to your bidders that will appear in the Mobile Bidding App and/or as Text Messages (if available). These messages will also appear as a transient pop-up for bidders logged in and actively viewing the website.
