Updated Purchases Report

Our Purchases Report is one of our most popular reporting tools, and now it’s even better. With this new update, you can now personalize the fields you want to see. This is user-specific, so each user in your organization can customize their view, based on the fields they want to see.

Global Reports

Exciting news! Global Reporting now allows you to easily look up bidder transactions across multiple events with just a few clicks. Our comprehensive report provides a bird's eye view of every item sold (including silent, live, for sale, donations, and tickets), along with the buyer's information, winning bid amount, and payment status, all across your entire organization. Plus, our flexible system allows each Auction Manager to choose which fields they want to view and export for maximum customization.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
