Get on VDB list during online check in?

Hi I've been offered the prompt to volunteer before on a Continental Operated flight, but only at the Check-In machines at the airport.

Is this same functionality available online? Like if my flight is oversold, I can get added to the volunteers list during online check-in?

Not exactly sure how it works but I had a connection after a red-eye from west coast a few weeks ago and had offer at check in for my connecting flight- I took offer and when I showed up at gate 10 min. prior to boarding agent said she didn't need anymore volunteers I showed her the slip and said I volunteered about 10 hours ago. She looked at slip and said Thank you and put me at top of list. ( I received $300)-

So this was at the airport? Not during Online Check in?

I'm just wondering because I'm on a IAD-IAH-EZE flight and I really wouldn't mind the IAD-EZE direct.

I'm hoping for a bump as the IAD-IAH flight is currently zeroed out, and I wanted to maximize my chances of getting said bump.
