Plus/Premium subscribers now have the option to Auto-Send Invitations to Bid to ALL Guests as they check-in for your Gala event. Even if invitations have already been sent to launch pre-bidding, enabling this feature allows your front desk staff to confirm check-in with the message: "You're all checked in - and we've just sent you a fresh invitation to bid. Previous invites will still work - but this one will be at the top of your inbox. . ."
Important notes about this feature:
- This setting triggers invitations during regular check-in (from the Auction Night screen). There is a separate setting for directing guests to online bidding after Self (Advance) check-in online - a new invitation is unnecessary after self check-in because they are already on your event site.
- The Auto-send invites use the Automatic Invite Template. Three invite templates are provided so you can prepare and tailor different text for initial invitations to bid, auto-sent invites and follow-up invites.
To enable Auto-Send option:
Go to: Admin > Site Settings > Online Auction / Mobile Bidding > Signup and Invitations
