Enter the following:
|Message text||What you want the scrolling ticker message to say. Must be < 140 characters in length.|
|Start||The date and time the message will start displaying. Click Start Now to start showing the message now.|
|End||The date and time the message will stop displaying. Click Stop Now to stop showing the message now.|
|Show on BidPal Device||When checked, the message will scroll on mobile bidding devices and kiosks.|

Tip! During the mobile auction, do not display more than 1-2 messages during the same timeframe. Stagger ticker messages so that they display for 30-60 minutes with a 5 minute break between new messages.
