List of Trades View
Use the List of Trades view to review and manage agents' pending schedule trades. The view displays a table of agents' proposed schedule trades, standard date-selection controls, buttons to accept or decline each pending trade, and a drop-down list that modifies the table's contents.
If multi-site trading is permitted in your environment, it enables agents to trade across different sites within the same business unit. This means you might see the same trade under two different sites, if the trade participants are located in different sites.
Depending on which sites you have access rights to, you can either fully approve the trade or partially approve it (if you have access rights to only one of the two sites in the trade). When you partially approve a trade, you receive an appropriate warning message (that the trade needs further approval) and the trade remains in Pending status until a supervisor with the required site access rights completes the trade approval process.
Displaying the List of Trades
To display the List of Trades view:
- In the Modules tree, click Trading > List of Trades.
- The List of Trades view appears.
- In the Objects tree, select a site, teams, and/or agents.
- You can expand business units to display their sites and you can expand sites to display their teams and agents. You can select any number of agents and/or teams within a single site.

- Click Get data to populate the table for the selected agents.
Using the Table
The List of Trades table shows all of the proposed schedule trades that meet the following criteria:
- At least one trade participant is among the agents that you selected in the Objects tree.
- The trade can still be accepted or declined. (Once accepted or declined, trades no longer appear in the table.)
- The trade is within the selected week. (To see other weeks, use the date-selection controls at the upper right.)
Each proposed trade appears on two rows. (If a scroll bar appears to the right, you can use it to reveal more trades.) The table includes the following columns:
|Dates||Start and end dates for the proposed trade.|
|Agent Name||Names of both agents involved in the trade.|
|[Weekdays]||Agent schedule information for the specific day in the trade. The cell contents correspond to your selection from the Show data for drop-down list.
If the agent is not scheduled for a shift on this day, the cell contains: Day Off, Vacation, Working Hours (for scheduled working hours without a shift), or an exception name (for scheduled full-day exceptions). A blank cell indicates that this day is not included in the proposed schedule trade.
|Paid Hours||Total paid hours in the trade proposal.|
|Details||Button to display schedule details for both agents involved in the trade.|
