Avoid Voluntary Event
Avoid Voluntary is ignored if events need to be filled and bidders with more seniority have avoided voluntary event. Your administrator sets a requirement for the minimum May Go that must be filled. The administrator also sets the Junior Assign status to each event pattern, if a pattern is set as Junior Assign the N-PBS Scheduler must award all of seats on the pattern.
The placement of the Avoid Voluntary Event bid is important. This bid tells the N-PBS Scheduler that you would prefer to get no event unless a event pattern is ranked as preferred based on your Award, Avoid or Prefer Off bids above it. If you are still awarded a event pattern this bid is ignored and your entire bid is used to award you a event pattern.
Avoid Voluntary Event after bid 3 tells the N-PBS Scheduler that you would prefer no voluntary event event if it cannot award you event that starts after 15:00 that gives you June 20th off while avoiding equipment type 2. If you cannot avoid voluntary event the N-PBS Scheduler will attempt to award event that starts June 15.
