How to upgrade from economy to business class on Qatar Airways?

New to Qatar, and as a result have absolutely no points or status accrued. Has anyone had any luck upgrading from economy to business? Do they do a bid system like Qantas? If so, when will I get notified? I find the App isn’t great and when I go to ‘manage booking’ online there’s no upgrade option. Fly in about a weeks time. All help gratefully received!

They do appear to have a bid option and even an upgrade at check-in option.
