We estimate that this will take 4 minutes to complete.
By default, you begin your PBS sessions on the Information screen. It displays at-a-glace, current information about the data the system has for you, and your various bids, their status, and any upcoming events you have. Let's take a look at this screen in detail.
2 Detailed Explanation
When you first log into the system, the Information screen displays your current information.
Let's explore the information shown on this screen, starting with your name and employee number.
In this training example, all names are fictitious and all data shown is generic system data. Your airline may customize the information displayed for its specific requirements.
Information about the current bid period is shown here.
You can see how many trips of 1, 2, 3, or 4 days the bid period contains in the Total Pairings Day Wise chart.

Shadow dates are used in a scenarios where you are a union member and want to see your bid awards, even though you aren't flying for the bid period. This field is blank when there is no union involved.
The Bidding Information portion of the screen works as a Bid Packet Cover Page. Your employer can provide pertinent bid period information such as Credit Windows, Bid Dates, and so forth. The information presented can vary from bid period to bid period and category to category.
