Sending Invitations to supporters provides the easiest access to your Virtual Live Auction - but you won't be able to send invitations unless you have their name and contact information uploaded to your event site ahead of time.
To allow access to the wider public, you must display a signup link in your nav bar to allow the public to create an account. Once they've signed up, they'll be directed to your Virtual Event page*.
Direct folks to the signup form by:
- Providing a prompt and/or link on your event site homepage
- Providing a link on your organization's website
- Promoting the signup process prior to your event
- Sharing the link as needed.
Once you've set up your Signup page, you can capture the URL for your link by logging out then clicking on the Signup link (it only displays for visitors that aren't already logged in). Copy the URL to paste into the links you're creating in your promotional materials. It should look something like this: https://orgname.schoolauction.net/eventname/signup
*If they signup before your event is live, they won't have access to the Virtual page, but you'll be able to send them an invite to participate when you're ready and/or they'll be able to login to join the festivities.
