How to create a new auction?
To create a new event click on Auction -> Add New Auction and fill in the details
You can copy items and bidders between events by clicking on Items -> Copy Items, or Bidders -> Copy Bidders
You don't need to copy donors between events since they are stored per-organization and not per-auction. However, the system automatically tracks whether a donor is active or inactive in an event based on whether or not they have an item or donation.
If you create a new auction and look at the donor list it will appear empty until some items are added. You can see all the donors by changing the Status drop down above the donor list to show All Donors
