When you log in to your manager account (manager.hand.bid) your MAIN DASHBOARD will appear. From the MAIN DASHBOARD, you can manage your Organization, Contacts, Inventory, and Auctions.
The Left MENU Panel
On the left panel you will find navigation for:
- Contacts - This is where you can access your contact database in Handbid. For more on Contacts, please read this overview article on Contacts.
- Auctions. Click here to show a list of your auctions, create a new auction, test auction or a non-auction event.
- Inventory. This is still a product in BETA (in that it is not completely finished) but it does work for managing item inventory outside of auctions. Play around with it!
- Support. You can click this link to find the knowledge base!
The Main Panel
In the main panel will be a card view of all of your auctions along with a filter at the top that will allow you to show or hide auctions in various statuses (setup, open, presale, preview, paused, closed, reconciled)
For more on auction status, please review this article: Changing your Auction Status
The Right Panel
The Right panel will show statistics on your auctions run on Handbid. This will be a cumulative report as you continue to run events on the platform.
The Organization Tab
Just above the main panel will be your organization name. Next to it will be an edit icon where you can edit your organization settings.
To get more information on editing these settings, please read this article: Editing your Organizational Settings.
So what do you need to do next?
If you have not set up your auction, we recommend you start there.
