Smart Trade or Criteria Based Trade
A Smart Trade is a trade request that will let you choose specific criteria that you are looking for in a trip whether that is a specific date range, number of days, all-nighter, departure time, or other criteria. Usually a Smart Trade is also referenced as a Trade Away because you are trading away a trip and into a set of criteria but it can be just a pickup only request. You can specify as many criteria per trade as you wish and create up to 18 Smart Trade Requests! When a Smart Trade is created, it will appear in the Trade Pane area of the Left Side Panel Pane. Each Smart Trade will appear with the Smart Trade icon. When there are many Smart Trades, you can expand or collapse the list of Smart Trades by clicking the arrow next to My SkyNet Trades.
- Smart Trade Request Pickup Only – Create a trip pickup request based on criteria. This WILL automatically create a listing on the Trips Wanted subset of the Trade Board.
- Trade Away one trip and into a set of criteria. This WILL automatically create a Trade Board Post and when some other pilot clicks the 'Contact Owner' button, they'll be able to propose a pilot-to-pilot 'handshake' trade with you if they like your trip.
- Trade Away more than one trip and into a set of criteria - If you have multiple trips that you want to Trade Away they can all be contained within the same Trade Request or you can create a separate trade request for each one. By creating a Trade Request for multiple trips, this WILL create a Trade Board Post also.
