This section describes how to enter criteria to search for pairings and add bid preferences. For information on how to search for pairings or add a bid, see Search for Pairings or Add a Bid.
There are many ways to enter criteria for searches and to add options to your bid preferences. This list doesn't cover all of the bid preferences but it does cover all of the methods that you will require to enter criteria.
When you open the Pairing Preferences editor on the Pairings screen or the Bid Preference Editor on the Bids screen you will see the list of options to either start a search or add a bid group or bid preference.
The Home button returns you back to this list but it leaves your last selection checked. If you were adding a Prefer Off bid you would come back here with it selected.
The Close button closes the Bid Preference Editor.
The Apply button performs your search or adds your bid preference. The Apply button remains gray until you have entered the proper criteria. Red text at the top of the bid explains what criteria you are missing to search or add a bid. On the pairing screen, white text, above the list of pairings explains what criteria you are missing to perform a search. For example if you want to search for or add Depart On dates and haven't entered any dates you cannot select the Apply button. When the Apply button is blue you can click on it to add the search criteria or bid.
The Reset All button returns you back to this list but it removes your last selection checked.
