PBS Dashboard

Understanding Your Dashboard

Status

Once PBS opens, you'll want to check your Status on the Dashboard.  This will be the final result from the LRD toggle.

The Status will include LINEHOLDER or RESERVE and may include a special status such as PURSER | SPEAKER | PAY-PURPOSE-ONLY

NOTE: If you have a status of PAY-PURPOSE-ONLY a schedule is created to calculate your pay, but you will not be flying the trips.   For this status, trips are not removed from the pairing pool and will still be awarded or assigned to others.

Targeted Line Average for your Base

Another important item to check on your PBS Dashboard is the Base Line Average:

Based on the target line average for your base and the total number of high time bidders compared to the number of low time bidders, PBS determines if it can honor all desired bids and leave no more than 3% open time, while ensuring the actual line average for your base is as close to this targeted line average as possible.

This process may cause a restriction on the minimum or maximum number of hours your line may be built to.
