How do I show winning bids on a TV or projector?

You can project the winning bids on a projector or large screen TV using the kiosk mode feature in Auctria.

Kiosk mode is a special type of auction web site that can be used on devices that you set up at the event.

To get started click on Website on the auction dashboard then choose the Create Website button on the left

On the create website page select the Kiosk report template for projecting winning bids and enter an auction address (though you won't actually need it)

After creating the website, if you click on Website then All Websites you will see it in the list

You can edit the website by clicking on the eye icon on its row

You can change the font size and report details by moving the mouse over the report and clicking on Settings

To activate the report display in kiosk mode you need to enter kiosk mode from the website page off the dashboard

On the All Websites page click on the menu icon for the kiosk mode web site and choose Kiosk Mode or Kiosk Mode (Unrestricted)

The difference between the two is that Kiosk mode requires that you enter a password to return to the admin dashboard, where as this is not required with the unrestricted link. If you are leaving the system projecting the winning bids unattended then using Kiosk mode is more secure.

In kiosk mode use the Leave kiosk mode link in the bottom right to return to the admin dashboard
