Auction Tabs

Delete an Auction


Auction Tabs                                                                                             


  • Upcoming Tab - auction workspaces displaying and sorted by future start dates
  • Active Tab - auction workspaces with current start dates.
    • This tab will contain all auction workspaces were your start date is today. Once the auction End Date is reached, the auction workspace will move into the Completed tab. If an End Date is not set the auction will automatically be moved at 23:59 on the calendar day set in the Start Date.
  • Completed Tab - This will show your auction workspaces that have auction dates within the previous 90 days.
  • Auction Vault - After 90 days, completed auctions will automatically be moved from the Completed tab into the Auction Vault. Once here you can search for them in a variety of ways:
    • Keyword: A keyword is any word that appears within any of your lot descriptions.
    • Auction: You can select from the auctions you have created so far.
    • Coordinator: Load auctions based on the Coordinator that managed the auction within Wavebid.
    • Date Range: You an enter a Start Date and an End Date. Any auctions matching these parameters will be shown.
