Create Custom Lot Builder Fields

Wavebid allows for the creation of custom fields for building and managing lots. Custom lot fields created under Company Level Lot Attributes will appear on the Lot Builder page on any auction for which they are enabled. This article describes the process of creating and enabling custom lot fields, and shows how those custom fields will appear in Lot Builder.

  4. The drop-down menu to the right determines the type of field:

      • Select- Adds a drop-down menu. Enter the drop-down menu options in the field to the right, separated by commas. If the Input must be in this list box is checked, Lot Builder will reject any options that are not listed. CustomLotFieldsSelect2.JPG
      • Text- Adds an open text box designed for smaller amounts of text. CustomLotFieldsText.JPG
      • Text Area- Adds an open text box designed for larger amounts of text. CustomLotFieldsTextArea.JPG                                                   
  5. The text entered into the Default field will be the default selection for that custom field. Lot Builder will default to this selection unless a new selection is made. Using the example below, the default for the Size drop-down is 1, and it will remain as 1 unless a new selection is made from the drop-down.                                          CustomLotFieldsSelect3.JPG
