Release 2.63

Double the Donation Integration

Handbid and Double the Donation are proud to announce a new integration and partnership to benefit nonprofits and their donors through employer matching gifts. The integration places 360MatchPro tools on Handbid donation forms for donors to discover their eligibility for matching gifts from their employer.

For more information on this integration - checkout the Double the donation and Handbid Integration Guide.

Get Started Intro Pages

The newly introduced Intro Pages serve as a user-friendly gateway for registration and downloading the Handbid app with utmost clarity and simplicity. These pages are accessible for all auctions, whether digital or not, excluding fundraisers or campaigns, and specifically designed for Handbid. It's important to note that Intro Pages are not available for White Labels. Users will encounter the Intro Pages in these scenarios:

      1. From the Get Started link on the event site
      2. Scanning the event QR code
      3. Receiving an invitation (via SMS or email) as a guest list invite from a sponsor who purchased a ticket.
      4. When the manager sends out mass invitations to all invitees.

This feature aims to streamline the onboarding process and enhance user experience across different entry points.

New RESET LINK feature

To enhance security measures, we maintain the policy of not allowing end users to directly edit their phone numbers within the app. However, in the event of an incorrect phone number, we have implemented a user-friendly solution. Users can request an email to be sent to them for correcting their data. This email will contain a RESET LINK, enabling users to auto-login to the app and access the data update screen promptly. This streamlined process ensures that users can easily rectify any inaccuracies in their information while maintaining a secure environment for all users.

Bug fixes and other "not so fun stuff"

Previously, guests had to click "Save info" for each guest to proceed, now the guest will be able to save all or add guests later.

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.

Testing image caption text
  1. Numbered list
  2. Numbered list 2
  3. Numbered list 3

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.
