# Quick Start Guides (new)
Welcome to the Auctria Quick Start Guides!
These guides will help take you through many of the key setup screens/options for your Organization and its auction/event.
If you haven't reviewed the Using Auctria section, we also recommend looking it over before diving into your own event setup.
You are also welcome to explore our Demo Auction to learn, hands-on, more about how the auction platform/site works without changing anything in your own account.
Also to note, not all steps are applicable when setting up every event, you may be able to skip those features you are not going to use.
