Using the app

Dark Mode: With the DarkMode-Switch, you can determine whether the font color is dark or light. Depending on the background color of the lot, this can be quite useful!

Color: With this color picker, you can choose the background color of the lot.

Mail text: Here you can compose an e-mail template with HTML. This is the e-mail that contestants will receive after buying lots. Use the placeholder variable [tickets], to display the lot numbers in the e-mail.
