When you first navigate to the event bid screen you will see an empty bid with three system-generated bid lines. Adding Event Bid Preferences is the same as adding bid preferences into Pairing and Reserve bid groups.
Start Event is always at the start of the bid and cannot be moved or edited. This bid line instructs the N-PBS Scheduler to begin building an event block.
Avoid Voluntary Event
Avoid Voluntary Event cannot be edited but it can be moved anywhere in your bid between Start Event and Award Event. This bid tells the N-PBS Scheduler that you do not want to be awarded event if you are not required to. However, you can be forced voluntary Event based on settings placed by your administrator and your Seniority.
You cannot avoid Voluntary Event if your Event Requirement is Must Go.
Award Event is always at the end of your bid and cannot be edited or moved. This bid means Award Any Item if a event pattern must be awarded and earlier bids do not express any preference.
