How do I use hockey box trade?

If Admins want to allow poolies to be able to perform a Box Pool trade to drop a player and pickup an unclaimed player from the same box, they can follow the steps listed below in Part 1 to enable Box Pool Trades. Part 2 shows how Admins can make Box Pool Trades on behalf of Poolies. And Part 3 shows how Poolies put in a Box Pool Trade request.

PART 1 - Admins enable Box Pool Trades

1. Access the "ADMIN" menu

2. Select the "TRADING" tab

3. Select "Trade Settings" in the sub-menu

4. Check the box for "Allow Box Pool Trades"

5. Set your Trade Period Rule:

Admin Approval - All Box Trade requests will go to the Admin for approval

Daily/Weekly/Monthly/Season - For whichever of these default periods you choose, the Box Trades will approve automatically AND will limit the poolie to the Transaction Count per period that you determine

NOTE - Weekly is based on a Monday to Sunday period

Custom - If you want Box Pool Trades to approve automatically but you want to build your own custom periods, you still have that option as per this help article

6. Click "Save" when done

PART 2 - Admins enter a Box Pool Trade on behalf of the Poolies

7. In Step 4 - For the Effective Date, leave as is if the trade is today. If it isn't for today, you can adjust to the day the trade occurred and scoring will reflect as such. You can put in a Note regarding the trade if you like. Click "Finish" when done.
