- Send the PDF and Google sheet to employees when bidding opens and let employees know when the auction will close
- Have bidders type their name and bid amount in the sheet on the auction items they hope to win
- The sheets will update in real-time as more employees place their bid
4. Close the auction:
- When the auction is scheduled to close, the admin that created and owns the sheet will adjust the sharing settings so that no one besides the admin is able to edit the sheet
