Award Reserve Line

Note: This bid is only available in Standard Reserve. If you don't see this option, it is not available.

The Award Reserve Line bid tells the N-PBS Scheduler that you want it to stop processing your bid and flag you as on Reserve. Your Reserve block is built outside of the N-PBS System.

You can attach a Max Above X (X is the value that you enter) option to the Start Reserve Bid bid preference. The Else Start Next Bid Group option is added automatically when you use Max Above. This indicates that you want a reserve block, but only if the amount of reserve blocks already awarded is less than the amount you entered. If this number has not been met, the N-PBS Scheduler moves to the next bid group. Refer to the Bid Validation article for more information on bids that you can and cannot submit.
