Session Time Limits
Sessions in AuctionBuilder expire after 30 minutes of inactivity. This log-out occurs as a security measure. The activities that occur within AuctionBuilder are confidential and should not be compromised.
In the bottom left corner of the AuctionBuilder page is a label in bold that says Session expires in.
There is a rolling countdown that starts at 29 min and 59 sec. At 1 min 59 sec, the lettering of the clock turns red as a warning of the session time. At 0 min 59 sec a pop-up warning window will appear instructing the user to extend the session.
A session can be extended at any time by clicking the words Extend Session located underneath the clock. A session is also extended anytime a new page is accessed within AuctionBuilder, or a new selection is made on a page.
When the session clock reaches 0, the user will be logged out of their AuctionBuilder account and taken back to the Login screen.
AuctionBuilder Help Center
The AuctionBuilder Help Center can be accessed any time by clicking the Help link located in the top right corner of any AuctionBuilder page.
