Use this setup screen to define parameters for your trades. Note that these items will only appear if they have been enabled on the General League Setup
Trade Approval - Select one of the following options to occur once an owner accepts a trade:
|•||Require commissioner approval.|
|•||Subject to a league-wide vote. If this option is chosen, the poll (vote) must be defined. Specify the number of days in which owners may vote.|
Trade Poll Creation - When a trade poll is created, the commissioner can indicate the attributes of the poll:
|•||Poll results are completely hidden until poll expires.|
|•||Poll is public, revealing who voted what way.|
|•||Poll is required - owners must vote before submitting lineups.|
Trade Poll Processing - If the trades is chosen to go through a league poll for approval it will be required to define the processing criteria.
|•||Manually Processed by the Commissioner via the For Commissioner > Review Trades
|•||Auto-process the trade as soon as xx Reject votes are cast (or total teams minus approve votes is less than the number of defined reject votes). For example, in a 12-team league, with a Reject vote setting of "4", the trade will be auto-processed as soon as 4 reject votes or 9 approve votes (12-9=3 is less than 4) occur. |
NOTE: Silence means consent. In other words, any vote not cast in the allotted time frame is considered an approval vote.
If the trade-poll deadline occurs and there are not enough approve or reject votes to process the trade, all non-votes are considered approve votes at the time the trade ends. At this point, the trade will occur (or be rejected, depending on the outcome of the vote) as soon as any owner or the commissioner accesses the league home page as this will trigger the trade to be processed.
Future Draft Pick Trades - Check the box to enable this feature and specify both the number of future years (ie, 1, 2, 3, ...) and the number of rounds in each future draft. For example, if you select 2 future years with 16 rounds per draft, each franchise will be able to trade 16 draft picks for each of the next two seasons. If your league is missing future draft picks for future years and/or newly created franchises, go to this page, verify the future pick settings, and click on the submit button to automatically generate all missing future picks.
Allow owners to trade blind bidding dollars? - Enable this option to allow owners to trade their Blind Bidding Dollars. This option only appears if your league is set up to run Blind Bidding on the Waiver Rules Calendar Setup
NOTE: This feature will not track these traded dollars on the YTD blind bidding if on the Setup > Blind Bidding Dollars Setup you have enabled the option "Do Winning Blind Bid Waiver Amounts Get Charged To An Owner's Accounting Report As "Real" Dollars?". It will only appear on the Accounting Report.
Display Trade Comments To All Owners - Enable to allow all owners in the league to see comments associated with trades. These comments are both emailed to every franchise upon trade approval and displayed on the Transactions
Allow Trades That Would Create Invalid Rosters To Go Through? - Change this option from it's default of "No" to "Yes", and trades that would cause invalid rosters will be allowed to go through by the system. For example, with this option set to "No", and if both franchises involved in a trade have full rosters, an owner will not be able to accept an uneven (i.e., 1 player for 2 players) trade. However, changing this option to "Yes" allows this trade to go through.
When A Trade Causes An Invalid Roster, Allow Owner To Submit Lineups? - Hand-in-hand with the option above, if an owner does have an invalid roster, how does your league want to handle this situation? Changing this option from it's default of "Yes" to "No" will prevent the owner in question from submitting a lineup whenever he has an invalid roster.
Default Number Of Days For A Trade Proposal To Be Valid For: - Enter the number of days by default that a trade offer will be valid between owners.
Prevent Owners From Accepting Trades Between Kickoff of that player's game and the end of the last game of the week? - This feature will prevent an owner from accepting a trade of a player once that players game has kicked off for the week. It does not prevent the processing of a trade due to a League Poll or Commissioner approval, simply the ability to accept the player once their games have kicked off for the week.
