Block Bidders

If necessary, you can block bidders from participating in the event or round (for RFQ events). Access the following options by navigating to the "Bid" section (Step 4) on the left navigation pane and select the "Bidder Activity" 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.
  • Block from current round - Selecting this option will prevent the bidder from placing bids in the current round only. The bidder will have read-only access to the event.
  • Block from current and future rounds - Selecting this option will prevent the bidder from placing bids in the current round and future rounds. The bidder will have read-only access to the event.
