Adding a bidding round to an event

  • Updated

You can add multiple rounds or stages to your event schedule. You can set a specific time for a round to start or set the new round to begin after the previous round closes.

If the event has multiple rounds or stages, the current round must be awarded before the next round can begin. For more information, see Award.
