In order to streamline the registration process, Handbid has a Contact List management function. We encourage you to upload your guest list in advance in order to go "paperless" as well as quickly create bidder accounts for your guests at registration.
Contacts are managed at your organization level so you must be on the main dashboard to import, view, or manage your contact list. Once uploaded, you will be able to quickly add your guests as bidders to your auction from your contact list.
To upload a contact list, go to the main dashboard and select "Contacts". You need a minimum of First Name and Last Name to add a contact. However, if you have: first name, last name, email and cell number, please enter it now. You will need all of these fields to enter a bidder account at registration.
Download a sample import template or use the one attached to this post.
You can also upload optional information such as Address, Placement (Table #, Golf Cart - etc.) & Sponsor.
Once your contacts are loaded you can search for them in the Contact Search field in
the Bidder Check in window. Click the Add Bidder icon
in the header of the Auction Manager.
Find the contact you want to register as a bidder and click the radio button to move them to the register window.
If you see an exact match by email or the same guest with two different emails, they may have already created their own account. You can ask the guest if they have already downloaded the app and created an account. If that is the case, you should choose the account they are already using and update that with any optional information you have uploaded such as sponsor or table number.
