You asked for it, and we listened. We’ve now improved item management with a couple new additions to make it easier for you to keep track of your auction inventory and donor stewardship.
Item tracking: You can now track whether you have an item in-hand, need to pick it up, or a donor will drop it off. You can make changes directly from the item details screen or from the main item page. We’ve also added a notes section from the item details screen to keep track of special pick-up or delivery instructions or donor wishes regarding a particular item e.g. minimum bid amount or handling.
Donor stewardship: We’ve also added a donor email field to keep track of donor contact info and send thank you notes directly through MyGala (this feature is coming soon). Additionally, you can now track whether a donor has been thanked for an item or not, both from the item details field, as well as the main item page.
Please keep those comments coming. We’re always making improvements to the system to make auctions easier for you and your team.
