Avoid Voluntary Event 

Avoid Voluntary Event is ignored if your event requirement is Must Go. See Must Go Bidders and Junior Assign for more information.

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.
