Handbid Release 2.56

Say hello to our latest and greatest release: Handbid 2.56!  We've added two exciting new features that will make auction management a breeze. 

Automatically Close Your Auction by Timer

You now have the option to coordinate the end date and time of your auction with a timer that notifies your bidders of when the auction will close. When you open your auction, Handbid will give you the option to choose whether you want to close your auction automatically or set a timer at a later date in your event settings.

See the image below which demonstrates what the notification looks like. 

Handbid now gives you the option to have your auction automatically close at the end date and time you put in your event settings

Automatically check your guests in

This feature allows you to specify who can bid in your auction. Whether you want to restrict bidding to local bidders or limit participation to certain individuals, you have the power to control it all. And with the option to automatically check in bidders on your Invite List or Guest List, you can simplify the process and give your donors more time to bid and enjoy the event.

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.
