This report will show the messages sent during the event.  You can select to filter these by Type or Bidder.   

Filter Messages "By Type"

The following message formats are available to view by Type:

  • Broadcast - show all broadcast messages sent
  • OutBid - show all outbid messages sent to bidders when they were outbid
  • Was Winning - show all "You are already winning" messages to bidders who try to outbid themselves. 
  • Winning - show all "You are winning" this item messages sent to bidders
  • Purchase - this will show all messages related to  "purchases" and "donations" 
  • Receipt - this will show the "you have an invoice" messages sent to bidders



Filter Messages "By Bidder"

If you want to see messages sent to a specific bidder, you can change "By Type" in the filter above the report to "By Bidder".  Then you can select your bidder and view all messages sent to that bidder during the auction.
