In Progress Now

Loaded on our screens right now!

DONE! – Butler improvements
Refine rapid fire by adding a trigger button on add appeal donations.

Improved admin Welcome page
As we speak with charities, we have compiled a list of elements that we will be revising.

Allow an organization to choose contact name on landing page
Allow an organizational admin the option to pick which contact info is displayed on the event landing page (virtual venue).

DONE! – Updates to item donors
This update adds needed functionality to make our solution more in line with the needs of our customers.

DONE! – System wide tagging
This will allow an admin the ability to organize bidders and items into groups that can be used in reports, displays and mass messaging.

DONE! – Discount codes for Ticket page sponsorships
Similar to individual tickets, codes will be available to reduce pricing of sponsorships purchased on the Ticket page.

DONE! – Landing page link update
Allow the “Register/Login” landing page menu text to be changed.

DONE! – Thank you emails to item donors
Item donors can already be sent thank you emails. This update will provide a shortcode so the email can also have the donated item(s) listed.

DONE! – Self-registration bidder number range
Landing page content will allow a starting bid number to be set so any self registrations happen above that number.

DONE! – Mass messaging updates
Added filtering on bidder tags, individual ticket pages, table numbers.

DONE! – Improved ticket page confirmation
Modify confirmation page to allow display of purchased items. Remove content carried over from ticket page header.

DONE! – Add “phone”, “email” for item solicitors
All our items allow for a solicitor name. Adding a phone and email address.

Coming Soon

On deck.

Add new bidder without a bidder number
This update allows an admin or volunteer to assign a bidder or paddle number at check-in. A bid number is already not required to bid or log into the bid site.

Improved email templates
To add consistency and simplicity to our email system, we would like to migrate all emails generated to a single email template. 

Landing page dynamic elements
Show a total amount raised, with a goal. The total can be filtered to a sub type (silent, live, etc.). It can also be used for a sub-set of items for comparison. In addition, allow adding a countdown clock to the landing page using a [shortcode].

“Team” Donations
Allows greater team donation functionality during a fundraising event.

Maintain CRM external id for bidders
When mass importing a donor list, allow for the import of an external id value. This value would be available during report exports so that it can easily be re-imported into a CRM.

Report improvements
Expanding on our reports, we will be making changes and new reports available as requested by charities and our team.

Appeal: multiple items per page
Allow an admin to pick more than one item to display as a bar chart/thermometer.
