How do I set up the countdown timer for participants to view?

Last updated:

To set an auction to close at a specific time, go to Auction Controls in the left hand menu and check "close the auction at a specific time".Click on the calendar icon or type in the time and the count down timer will appear in the dashboard on the bar in the top left corner and on the campaign itself, for participants to view.

Note that the campaign will close automatically at this time and all participants who made purchases (for example raffle tickets) or won auction items will receive a notification of the close with a link to their invoice. Invoices containing only raffle tickets will be displayed as paid.
