As a Facility Manager, District Manager, Administrator, or Owner of a storage facility you have the option to save a draft auction instead of posting it live to the public. When you reach Step 3 of the posting form, there are two options: "Save as Draft" or "Post this Auction Now".
The two options work as follows:
"Save as Draft" saves all data entered so far and creates a Draft Auction that that be edited and posted at a later time. This draft auction can also be deleted.
"Post this Auction Now" immediately posts the auction live on the website regardless of the start date/time. Once an auction is posted it can be seen by anyone accessing the site.
Why might one use the Save as Draft option? Here are a couple scenarios we can think of...
If you do not have all of the details of the auction yet
If your DM or someone in upper-management want to review the auction before it goes live
If you want to get a head-start setting up your auctions but aren't ready for them to go live yet
To access Draft Auctions, click the Online Auctions drop-down in your Account. Select "Draft Auctions" - there you can view any auctions that were saved to drafts. To post those auctions live, click Edit/Post and complete the posting and select "Post this Auction Now" when you get to Step 3.
