Creating trade proposals

Create trade proposals, by using either My Schedule, My Schedule Details, or Other Schedules view.

To propose a schedule trade:

  1. In the first column of the schedule grid, select the check boxes beside the schedule days that you want to trade, then click Create trade proposals.
    When the dialog box opens, its first line lists the date(s) that you selected.
  2. Select either:
    • This trade proposal is for the community or
    • This trade proposal is for an individual
    Your choice determines who will be offered your proposal. The community option includes all agents in your team, site, and business unit, depending on how your system administrator has set up WFM Web.
  3. Follow the procedure that matches your choice, below.

Sending a trade proposal to the community

If you select This trade proposal is for the community in step 2, the Check if you want to manually approve the response to this trade proposal check box is selected by default.

You must confirm (accept) one response to submit the trade for approval.

  1. Optionally, enter comments about this proposal.
  2. Click Create to send the proposal, or Cancel to delete it.
    If you choose Create, the My Trades view opens displaying a list of your existing trades, including this one.
Tip
You can enter comments in schedule trade proposals only if your system administrator has enabled the Commenting feature.

Sending a trade proposal to an individual

1

If you selected This trade proposal is for an individual in step 2, above:

  1. Click Edit WM 852 mlti-ste edit-icon.png to open a list of agents available for schedule trading.
  2. Click (to highlight) the row containing the agent with whom you are trading schedules and then, click Select.
  3. Optionally, select Check if you want to manually approve the response to this trade proposal.
  4. Optionally, enter comments about this proposal in the large text box near the bottom.
  5. Click Create to send the proposal, or Cancel to delete it without sending it.
    If you choose Create, the My Trades view opens displaying a list of your existing trades, including this one.

Notes about creating and sending trade proposals

  • In step 1 above, you might select the agent's name from a drop-down list (instead of from the List of Agents, as shown below), depending on how your system administrator has set up WFM Web and trading in your contact center.
  • You can also create trade proposals when Viewing other agents' schedule details.
  • In step 3 above, choosing to manually approve the response to a trade means you must explicitly confirm the other agent's acceptance of this proposal for the trade to take place. Clearing the box means the trade will be submitted for approval immediately, without your intervention, after the other agent accepts it.

Viewing a list of agents

1

When you create a trade proposal for an individual and click Edit WM 852 mlti-ste edit-icon.png in the Create Proposal dialog, a list of agents opens in a separate window with these columns and controls:

  • Sort any one of the four columns, Site, Team, First name, Last name in ascending or descending order by clicking Sort WM 852 nw asc-desc col-arrws.png in the column header.
  • Search for agents by clicking the drop-down menu and selecting First name or Last name and then, type the agent's name.
  • Filter agents by:
    • People I work with
    • My shared transport
    • My team
    • My site
    • My business unit
  • Click Back to return to the Create trade proposals dialog.
Tip
Different selections will appear in the Filter drop-down menu, depending on how Trading is administered in your site.
