Auto Bidding with Preferences


This suggestion comes from one of our employees who missed their bidding window for the upcoming schedule change.

The ask is to have the “Default Shift Bid Preferences” used to automatically bid for you.

This is found from the Employee Role > Bidding tab > Default Shift Bid Preferences

The employee would need to have a more detailed preferences set, which the system seems to have. This would be around the starting time selected. The employee would need to have enough selections to cover their seniority placement.

Currently the preferences match up in the bid in numerical order based on the employee’s settings in order of their preferences.

An idea could be to have the preference mark the bid automatically if selected by adding the option of “Use for Auto-Bidding”.

When selecting to “Use for Auto-Bidding” option, the preferences would automatically check the box of the line that is matched to the preferences. Having this box checked would be their confirmation. The management of this feature would be the responsibility of the employee.

We would need to send an email to the employee with the choices selected based on the preferences set. If the employee wants to revisit their options, they can go in and edit just like any other time.
