# Auctria Walkthroughs (updated)

# Welcome to the Auctria Walkthroughs section!

This information will help guide you through many of the key setup screens and options your Organization may want for their 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 Auctria platform works without changing anything in your own account.

Also to note, not all steps may apply to your Organization when setting up your event, you may be able to skip some feature sets you are not going to use. You can always go back and add, or re-configure, feature sets in the future as needed.

Flag Explanation
(new) new content (often added within the last three to four months)
(updated) updated content (generally updated within last three to four months)
(advanced) advanced usage reference, may not be directly supported
(archived) archived content, may no longer be applicable but retained for reference

NOTE: Other "Flags" may be found. The above are the most common in the User Guide.

  • a combination of some or all of the above.
What do you want to use Auctria for?
  • tracking auction items;
  • online (only) bidding;

For online features, what will you be using the event website for?

  • bid on items;
