View the Calendar page for pre-assignments and training before you add a bid 

This topic reviews the Calendar screen and its functions, prior to making bids. 

We estimate that this will take 5 minutes to complete.

Detailed Explanation 

The Calendar tab allows you to see what is currently on the schedule, if any items are pre-assigned, such as vacation or training, it will appear on this screen. If it is after a schedule is awarded, then you will be able to see what your schedule is. In this training demonstration, we view the calendar BEFORE any bids have been awarded.

Today's date displays at the top left of the screen. 

Your last bid submitted to the server, along with the date-time stamp and unique confirmation number for when it was submitted displays here.
