The Bid Analyzer only analyzes positive (Award) and negative (Prefer Off, Avoid) bid preferences in Pairing bid groups. You cannot analyze bid preferences in a Reserve bid group, nor does the analyzer take into account Set Condition, Instruction or Waive bid preferences.
The Bid Analyzer is a tool that shows you how many pairings match a negative or positive bid preference. It then shows you how your bid affects the available pairing pool for your category. You can use this information to determine how effective a bid preference or your entire bid is. For example, if a bid preference doesn't match any pairings in the available pool it won't have any affect on your award. If your negative bids remove a large number of pairings or all pairings from your pairing pool, some of your bids will be denied.
On a negative bid, the analyzer shows you how many pairings are removed from the available pairing pool and on a positive bid, the analyzer shows you how many potential pairings are in the pairing pool. These are potential awards, if you see a pairing in the preferred pool it does not mean that you will be awarded the pairing.
You can view the bid analyzer results for a single bid or for your entire bid. The results can be shown in the bid or can be shown below the bid along with the list of pairings that match the results.
