Bid Script:  "Generate a generic bid as last bid group

If you check this item, Bid Central will create a "generic"  bid that it will put at the end of the bid script as the last bid group.  The beauty of the generic bid is that it will allow you to perhaps get some of your preferred (bookmarked) trips even if you can't hold a schedule you want.  The generic bid group consists of the following.

1)  Bid group header if you've selected one
2)  Avoid work day preferences
3)  Award trips of all of your bookmarked trips requested in "rank" order in groups of 8 to be compatible with the ATLAS format.
4)  The command "AWARD TRIPS"

Of course you can add other commands to the generic bid to maximize the chances of getting your best schedule.

Here is an example of generic bid group looks like that Bid Central actually generated.
