Any default bids with "GP" will not be converted. Any member with GP in their default bid will need to replace it with GJ.
A HELPFUL TIP: We encourage you to practice on the New UI. During this period both the new the current versions of PBS will be available for creating, modifying and submitting bids. You may take the opportunity to log into the new version to look and see and perhaps play with what is new. Remember that if you submit a bid in either versions then that bid will be submitted as an official bid. However, if you play with the new version and do not submit a bid then your official bid has not been changed.
