Testimonials about Handbid’s School Auction Software
"Since entering into a master service agreement with Handbid, five colleges and departments have hosted successful fundraisers on the platform. Several of these events had never had an online component. Handbid allowed us to expand our reach and connect with alumni and donors across the country. Handbid will help us continue to facilitate this virtual engagement, even as we return to more in-person events this fall!" -Melanie Edwards, Director of Online Engagement of the University of Tennessee
“Auction-in-a-Box is a “must-have” for any organization looking to do a virtual auction! The platform is so incredibly easy to use, the staff was so helpful, responsive, and friendly, and because of this, our Auction was a huge success. The Handbid team walked us through every step, made sure we were on track leading up to our auction and provided our funds to us in a timely manner. This product is dynamic and contains everything you need to perform a successful auction. If you are looking for a product to help crush your auction, look no further than Handbid!” -Austin W. from Valley Christian Schools of Arizona

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.
- Numbered list
- Numbered list 2
- 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.
