If you permit capacity upgrade in FCFS bookings, shippers will be able to request an upgrade of previously booked interruptible capacity to firm capacity or lower quality firm capacity to higher quality firm capacity.

1. Log into your account;

2. Click on gear icon at the top left corner;

3. Then, click on "Regular FCFS" on the drop-down menu;

4. Now, click on the "Edit" in the "Capacity Upgrade" tile;

5. Choose whether you wish the enable capacity upgrade for long-term and/or short-term products;

6. Then, choose whether the Contract ID field - that is, the field in which the shipper is to enter the contract of the capacity to be upgraded - should be mandatory, optional or not-applicable.

7. Finally, click on "Save Changes."
