Once you are done creating an auction in CalUsource, the next step is to publish the auction event you created.
After publishing your event, invited suppliers will receive an email invitation to participate. That email will come from firstname.lastname@example.org, not a UC email address. This can confuse suppliers. To avoid confusion, send all invited suppliers an advance notice of the auction from your work email.
How to Publish an Auction
Complete building out the sections for your Auction. Then send then courtesy reminder to all invited suppliers BEFORE you publish.
Click on the Publish button when ready to release the auction.
A confirmation box will display, click on the yes button to publish the auction.
Adjust the email template as needed to notify the suppliers of the auction and press send when done.
Your event will now display a published status.
