Add a Bid from the Search Screen

You have two options, you can add a bid preference that has the same options as your search or you can add a bid preference with pairing numbers returned from the search results. This topic shows how to add a bid preference using both options.  

You can add bids to your Current, Default or Training bid.

To add an Award of Avoid Bid:

1.     Add a Start Pairings bid group from the Bids screen. See Before You Can Add a Bid for important information before adding a bid from the Search screen.

       Select a bid in the Start Pairings bid group. The bid preference selected is highlighted blue. The new bid preference is added below the highlighted bid.

2.     Go to the Pairings screen.

3.     Perform a search using any options you choose (you don't have to perform a search to bid for pairing numbers).
