When working as a team to catalog an auction using the Maxsold Seller app, it is important that each team member works on clearly defined separate ranges of lot numbers. This will avoid any errors or data loss or duplicated work that may result from multiple people cataloguing different items using the same number.
For example, if you estimate that an auction you are cataloguing will include 90 lots, we would suggest:
With two cataloguers
Person A photographs and describes Lot #1 - Lot #45
Person B photographs and describes Lot #46 - Lot #90
With three cataloguers
Person A photographs and describes Lot #1 - Lot #30
Person B photographs and describes Lot #31 - Lot #60
Person C photographs and describes Lot #61 - Lot #90
If as you catalog you determine that there will be a few additional items, the first cataloger to complete their assigned range can simply add additional lots starting with Lot #91
If you must divide the work by function with one user photographing on their device while another completes the description on their own device for the same lot number (and we recommend you do not), you must ensure the users doing photography only sync their images first while the text-only users sync their data last. If the photography-only user syncs their data after the text has been synced, the images fail to sync and some of the text data gets lost.
What happens if a Regular user tries to use the pin before a Lead User enters the ID into the app? Will it allow the Regular user to build?
If a regular user attempts to begin cataloguing by entering the PIN before the Team Lead user has created the catalog in their app, the regular user will receive an error and will be unable to access the catalog until it has been created by the Team Lead.
