Often you will need to train other volunteers/staff that will be helping to run the event.
There are a number of ways to set this up:
Create a new auction just for testing
You can create a new auction in your existing organization (assuming your license will allow it).
- You can copy an existing auction (click on Auction -> Copy)or
- Create a new blank auction (click on Auction -> New Auction)
We recommend giving the auction a very obvious title: for example ** TEST EVENT ** so that it is clear from the page header which event is open.
Use a Lite License
You can create a brand new organization that will have a lite license, but which is still sufficient for testing: click on Organization -> Create New Organization, or sign out and use the sign up link on the sign in page to create a new account under a different email. You could share this email address/password with others you want to use it.
Sign out of your account and use the demo auction to test with. This is available using the links on the right of the sign in page. You can also access this at www.auctria.com/Demo The demo is pre-populated with some data so you don't need to spend time adding any.
If you use the /Demo link, this link will sign you out of your account automatically
The advantage of options 2 & 3 are that they are not attached to your account and so much less susceptible to confusion about which event you are working in.
