Bidding Checklists

Check Your Layer Tab

None of your layers are resulting in zero (0) pairings by layer

None of your pairing properties conflict with your line or days off properties

If you bid specific pairings, only the total number of specific pairings (multiplied by positions) you bid show up in that layer

Click on “view pairing set” to see all the pairings you are bidding for in each layer. Make sure the pairings are what you prefer

You did not bid generic properties in the same layer as specific pairings

You correctly bid your “preferred position preference” in every layer

Check to make sure you only bid your “preferred position preference” once per layer

Do not combine multiple maximize properties in one layer

Make sure the “target credit range” you are bidding is:

— Realistic for your seniority
— Can be accomplished with the days off you are bidding
— Appropriate for the pairings you are bidding (do the math)
— Make sure you only bid one TCR range per layer

Check Your Calendar

All known absences are on your monthly calendar

All days off you are bidding for show up in each layer you bid for them

If on Reserve, you bid for your reserve days off under the reserve tab

Check Your Dashboard

Check your status to make sure it is the correct lineholder or reserve status

Check your qualifications to make sure your first language is the primary language you prefer (if it is not, you will not be able to change it for this bid run, but have to make changes by the 26th for next month)

Check to make sure your qualifications are accurate

Check to make sure that if you show as a reserve but had toggled to be a lineholder you backed yourself up with bidding lines
