Access the following options by navigating to the "Bid" section (Step 4) on the left navigation pane and select the "Bidders" view. Select the drop down arrow in the 'Actions' column next to a bidder and clicking 'Block Bidder':
- Block from event -The bidder will not be able to open the event and will not be able to see, receive invites or participate in subsequent rounds.
- Read only access -The bidder will access to the event but will not able to submit something.
