Creating Custom Lot Fields


Please note that custom fields may not export to online bidding platforms.

  1. Navigate to My links > Company > Profile.
  2. Click on the Lot Attributes  tab and scroll down to the bottom of the page.                                                                                                                       CompanyLevelLotAttributesTab.JPG
  3. Information entered into the Company 1-5 rows will appear as customized fields displayed on each lot in Lot Builder. The text entered in the Company fields will be the labels for each of the customized fields.                                                                                           CustomLotFields.JPG
  4. The drop-down menu to the right determines the type of field:
      • Check Box: Adds a check box each lot (ex. Yes/No, On/Off). The text in the Company field will be the label for the check box. CustomLotFieldsCheckbox.JPG
      • 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
  6. Click the Disk icon in the top right corner of the page to save.
