Managing multi-site trade proposals
WFM enables you to filter trade proposals in the Trades view by My Trades, Offered to me, or Community proposals. WFM displays all proposals whose date range falls within the selected month. By default, it shows the current month, but you can change it by selecting a different month in the calendar.
This topic describes how to use the filter to change how proposals are displayed so you can complete various tasks and find detailed information about trading agents, proposals, and schedules quickly and easily.

WFM displays the trade proposals that you created, and proposals from other agents that you answered (offered only to you and offered to the community).
