1       Introduction 

Using the bid group icons to manage a bid group 

In this topic, you learn how to copy, delete and change the order of bid preferences to manage your bid group. 

We estimate that this will take 5 minutes to complete.

2       Detailed Explanation 

First, let's copy and paste a bid preference. 

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the Line 6 row.

These are the icons you'll use in this topic. These are maroon when available, and gray when inactive. 

HINT 

The tool bar buttons for managing a bid group activate when you make a bid group or bid preference selection in the table.

Interaction 1 Click the Copy image.

Interaction 1 Click the Paste image. 

You've added a copy of the row 6 bid preference. You could edit this now, but let's delete it instead.

Interaction 1

Interaction 1 Click the Delete image. 

Move line 6 down in the table. Remember, this impacts the order in which the preference is considered by the system.

Interaction 2 Click the Down image. 

And now, move line 4 upwards in the bid group.

Interaction 1 Click Line 4.

Interaction 2 Click the Up image. 

It's common to want a bid group similar to a bid group that you already have. If that is the case, rather than building the whole bid group again from the beginning, you can copy and paste the group and then edit it to suit. Let's copy and paste our bid group now.

Interaction 1 Click the Line 1 row.

If you'd like to add a bid preference, insert a line in the bid group, being mindful of its location relative to the other bid preference lines. As we have discussed, order is important, so any bid preferences listed above the one you create will be considered by the system first. For this example, you'll insert another line underneath line 12 to enter a preference for Enroute Check-In Time.

Interaction 1 Click the Insert line image.
