  1. It would notify bidders either they won

    One of the things I noted was that Ready Set Auction does not notify bidders that they won the bid. The bidder has to sign on to see that they owe something. When the event is strictly an online event, it is important the bidders are notified. Otherwise the volunteers have to call everyone to let them know.

  2. Online Bidding - See "all" bidders

    It would be nice to be able to see "all" the bidders on an item so you can know who you are bidding against...it makes it more competitive...similar to "working" the room in a live event.

  3. I would like to have an additional category in our catalog for items that have not been bid on.

    I would like to have an additional category in our catalog for items that have not been bid on. I find that people will go straight to that section to see how they can help. In addition, it will ensure that we don't have to have a lot of items left over that we have to store for next year or return to our donors. We want them to feel like they are making a difference.

  4. Allow us to change the end time for bidding on all items as one edit

    When we researched how to change the closing time for all the auction items at once, it appeared to be an easy thing to do: find all the items, click on them, change close time. Sounds great. But once things were bid on, you couldn't select all and I was eternally grateful to have a volunteer that changed the closing time on every single item. With an event like this, you need to be able to quickly adjust the closing time for the auction

  5. I would like to see the amount of the bid raise in the item information. It would help when using Otto to know what would be an appropriate

    When bidding, I would like to see the amount of the bid raise amount in the item information. It would help when using Otto to know what would be an appropriate additional amount to put on bids. I have frequently not put enough on my bid, except for the initial bid.

  6. Show Live Bids

    There should be a place to see Live bids as they happen. A simple graph or report on the program that will show who's the current bidder, their bid and for what.

  7. Ranging Price Packages are confusing to some bidders

    I received feedback from several bidders throughout the week that there is something confusing abut the way you purchase a ranging-price package. We used these packages as a "virtual raise the paddle" and created the ranging prices to match up with the tiers in our donor recognition lists. Some people accidentally entered more than one purchase when they were trying to adjust the price of their gift. It would be helpful if these packages were purchased with a simple "enter your amount" and without any price informtion automatically filled in for the bidder.

  8. Allow mobile bidding to update all bidders with a change in the end-time for bidding

    Mid event, we needed to make a change to the time that mobile bidding was finishing, and the system only allowed us to make that change one bidder at a time. A function allowing us to make that change for all 200 bidders with one click would have saved us a lot of time on the night.

  9. Have the ability to override closed auction items.

    Once the online auction has closed. Sometimes additional bidders will step forward, or they missed the bidding timeline. It would be beneficial to be able to override a current bid and outbid the previous winner.

  10. Sharing Bidder Numbers

    Would be great if the bidder number of the primary bidder ("Party of ...") were visible when you're wedding bidder numbers, so you could just enter the number rather than search for it by primary's name.

  11. Bidder Accounts

    I would like bidders to be able to use the same account to sign in on different devices at the same time.

  12. Bidding notifications should be opt-out not opt-in

    Uncouple "Enable outbid notifications via text message" from "Enable ebidding". If you'd like to have bidders set-up accounts before you enable the bidding via the "Enable ebidding" checkbox, then you cannot have an already checked box under Bidding Notifications for them to receive text messages. BETTER YET - make both Bidding Notifications by email and text opt-opt only.

  13. Notifications when Bidding Closes

    We want an automatic notification to be able to be sent from RSA to notify bidders just before the bidding window closes. *5 minutes, 10 minutes etc- and you can choose the time frame.

  14. Bid sheets could be printed to reflect any Pre-Bids that are made leading up to the event

    It would be nice to be able to print out up-to-date bid sheets. That way, if we lose internet during the event, we can continue to manually update our bid sheets throughout the event.

  16. Provide ability to change your own package quantities

    It's a little ridiculous that a user cannot modify their own bids and that staff has to do it for them. If I clicked on 2 instead of 1 by mistake, I should be able to adjust and correct.
