Frequently Asked Questions.

How exactly will Checklist Builder help my fundraising auction event yield more profit?

Fundraising events are a lot of work. It's easy to miss details, which can ultimately be very costly. Checklist Builder is the result of Danny Hooper's years of experience helping organizations exceed their financial expectations through effective planning and execution of accepted best practices.

Is Checklist Builder available in the App Store?

No. Checklist Builder is a web application that can be used on any device. This flexibility allows you to access your checklists anywhere on any device as long as you have an internet connection. Web apps also offer the security of knowing that you will not have device to device conflicts and that your data is always correct and up to date.

Does Checklist Builder work for small fundraising auctions too?

Absolutely. Because it is so easy to customize, Checklist Builder can be tailored to work for any size of event. In the case of a small event, simply remove the irrelevant committees or tasks. Who knows? Your small event could be so successful you'll need to grow it for next year.

What are the system requirements to run Checklist Builder on my computer or device?

Since Checklist Builder is a web app, all that is required to run your subscription is an internet connection and associated device, such as a computer, tablet, or smartphone. No downloads, no memory storage!

When should I purchase Checklist Builder?

As soon as you've decided to have a fundraising auction event, you should get started with Checklist Builder. The more prepared you are, the smoother your event will run and the more you will earn. Even if your event is coming up shortly, it's never too late to ensure you've covered all your bases!

How long do I have access to my subscription for?

You will have access to your subscription for a year. This allows for several months of planning leading up to the event, as well as time afterwards to collect and analyze valuable data, and regroup for the following year.

Can I add my own ideas and/or tasks?

Yes. Checklist Builder allows you to add your own tasks with a detailed description to any list/committee - that is, if we haven't already thought of it. You may also choose to remove committees and tasks that are not relevant to your event.

I do the same event every year. Can I save my checklists?

Yes! All of your details are saved in our database. Simply renew your subscription the following year, and your customized lists will be restored. Need to make a few tweaks after last year? Go ahead - you can keep on customizing until your annual auction event is a well-oiled machine.

Can I access Checklist Builder on a smartphone or tablet?

Yes. Checklist Builder can be viewed on any smart device, laptop or PC with an internet connection. This means that you can update your checklists when out running errands or from the comfort of your own home or office.

How many devices/users can access my event?

Unlimited. Having the ability to connect all of your team members to the event means you're keeping track of it all, without having to chase anyone down for status reports. Volunteers check off tasks on their computer or smartphone; you get instant notification.

Can I view a summary at the end of my fundraising auction event?

Checklist Builder keeps you updated on the progress of your event from start to finish. Once your event is complete, enter your relevant information into Checklist Builder's Event Detail Summary Form to pass on to next year's Event Director.

How will I know when a task is completed?

Tasks can be checked off the moment they are completed, and that action is updated in real time within the web app. Useful overviews are also provided to keep you updated on the progress of each committee and team member.
