The Virtual Control Panel provides two tools for monitoring bids and donations in real time. "Shout-outs" are posted automatically in the Chat feed seen by everyone - but the Bid/Donation History (visible to your team only) should be used to monitor activity - as results there will always display in the order placed (most recent at the top).
Note: Professional subscribers can place Proxy bids/donations on fusion event (virtual plus in-person) items Be aware that animations (floaters) and chat notifications will not display for proxy bids except when placed on the Current (active) item.
Bidding and Awarding Live Items:
Display screens are updated each time a bid is placed or a donation made. If you need to cancel a bid, click on the red x next to a bid.
When you're ready to award the winner - click on the Award High Bidder button. Be aware that the Award High Bidder button will always award the item to the highest bidder - so best practice is to click on the Award button BEFORE calling out the winner's name in case a last second bid arrives between the time you've called it and the winner awarded.
A carousel of images displays your lineup of items - use the"next" button to advance to the next item (or click on "manage items" button if you need to rearrange the order on the fly).
Items can be double-sold (awarded to multiple buyers) from the Control Panel as long as sufficient quantity is available.
