        *Note: only *1* custom tag per bidder can be used with this release. If there are multiple custom tags associated with a bidder, those custom tags will also show on the bar chart and will show inaccurate totals. (System tags *are excluded from the display*: logged in, checked in, has bids, prt stmt, has cc, email stmt)

Issues Resolved:

  1. Bidder Numbers: Starting Bidder Number will now allow up to 9 digits.
    1. Auction Settings>Bidder Settings>Starting Bidder Number
    2. Butler> Add bidder/edit bidder
    3. Manage Bidders> Add bidder/edit bidder
    4. Manage Bidders> Import bidder spreadsheet
      • The exception is 474747 and 585858 as we use those bidder #s as placeholders for Appeal and Eventstream.
      • Bidder numbers are limited to 9 digits so they do not interfere with phone numbers. 
  2. Butler
    1. When adding/editing a bidder and credit card is required (Auction Settings>Bidder Settings), the toggle for 'Require Bidders' Credit card to bid' is being displayed. 
    2. When adding a new bidder, the 'accept texts' toggle is remaining on which allows the welcome text to be sent. 
    3. When adding/editing a bidder in a Canadian event, the credit card will now save without an error.
    4. Bidder Lookup: using the 'Check Bidder in' button if there is no phone on file and the 'Check in without phone' button is selected, the bidder is being checked in. 
    5. Checking out with multiple purchases for 1 quantity item now displays each purchase as a separate row on the receipts. 
    6. Checkout: When processing payment for a donor, the 'checked in' bidder status is not reverting back to 'Check Bidder in?"
  3. Organization > events:
    1. When adding a new event and copying items from a previous event with a high number of items, it will no longer time out and all items will copy.
    2. Fixed an issue with our background process that clears out old demo account data.
  4. Bidders>Email Bidders: When saving a precomposed email, the email can be edited without a page refresh.
  5. Landing Page Content: Section titles are allowing special characters to be displayed. 
  6. Event Tickets>Modify tickets: Allow commas in individual ticket names so the 'download ticket sales' report on view ticket sales page is not adding a column after the comma.
