Video & Instructions: Invite List Overview

The Handbid Invite list allows you to invite people to your event directly through your Handbid event site. Whether you're inviting bidders from a previous auction, or by importing the guest list spreadsheet of people you wish to invite, you can directly reach out to your guests to invite and ask them to register and/or purchase tickets to your event.

Invites can be sent to your guests via text message or email. The invite message will need to be drafted in your message templates, as Handbid does not have a default invite message. Drafting the message with your own words allows you to personalize and include important information regarding your event and  how to register and purchase tickets. To personalize it even further, you will have the option to add an image to the header.

Before you send out your invite, we recommend testing the invite by sending yourself a test message first, to see how it looks. Check out the video below to see a quick tutorial on how to use the Invite List function.



To navigate to the invite list you will need to be in your auction. In the left-hand menu, go to:

People > Guests > Invite List
Below is a breakdown of all the features within the Invite List.
