It is an exchange awaiting confirmation of your partner.

What is a trade "recognized"

This is confirmed by an exchange, which has been debited / credited to respective accounts.

Vocabulary

The SALT avoid financial vocabulary because it does not confuse the two systems!

  • instead of "check", use "voucher" or "trading units"
  • also avoid "selling" and "buy" it "gives", "supply", "exchange", "propose", "receives"
  • speak of "trade" rather than "transaction."
  • talk about "service" that you make to someone who needs it, "wealth" you make or receive.

    supply / demand / Exchange appears in the "wrong" category (eg "Miscellaneous")

    The software scans all the words in your ads and automatically in the class / category, the corresponding s-s using a system of synonyms.
    It's not perfect, but has the advantage of being scalable because synonyms are updated regularly.
    If your offer / request / exchange is not in the "good" category, you can try to modify it by changing or adding a few words that are probably in the targeted category. Otherwise, it does not matter, members will find in the research.

    How to enter my exchange 2008

    The objective is to monitor and capture all your exchanges in 2008, without making too many duplicates.

    1. Download your Excel sheet exchange of SELduLac located in the Docs site "Leaves of exchange members of ... 23/06/08 "
    2. Print it for future reference when writing your discussions on the site.
    3. Gather your leaves

    4. Exchange 2008 in pencil and cross out the exchange already recorded on the sheet Excel exchanges that you just printed.
    5. Then in the "Members" of the site, click on your name, then click on "My Exchange". You have the list of trades already entered for the online site. Trade with a green light in the Status column are recorded and can not be changed. (Duplicates? See below). Trade with amber may be modified or deleted as appropriate to your entry.
    6. Once you have checked and deleted the exchange already entered on the Excel sheet and the site, you are ready to seize new trade.
    7. Click "Enter Exchange" under your name at the top right, and within minutes you have entered all your trading! Please describe your interaction in 4 words minimum please for they are in the right category more.

    Duplicates?
    First try to "remove" the exchange in question. Otherwise, you can enter an exchange of "correction" (with the same person but the seeds are in the opposite direction). Put in the description: "correction of the exchange" X "" X "." That's it.

    I took all the leaves exchange received before June 15 of the person who sent the leaves, but the exchange does not necessarily have been seized from the person who did not send his paper (for the same exchange). This can be difficult to grant the parties. To you to be flexible and understanding.

    If you do not have copies of your exchange leaves sent to me since June 15, I refer you happy.

    Courage, making this work, consider the accounting grains did it for years to 100 members. ;)
    How to Enter

    Exchange

    Click on the link "Enter Exchange" under your name at the top right.
    You can also go to the account of a member and use the form on the left.

    that captures the exchange site

    Usually the person who will make the grain, or by arrangement. What is important is that you control your communications "to confirm" before entering a new exchange, to avoid duplicates. As your partner have not confirmed the exchange, you can edit or delete it.

    What if the partner has not confirmed the exchange

    First, to show a little patience. Some people check their emails once a week. Others may be on vacation or absent for long periods. After a while, you can restart the phone, or possibly by email.

    How to register a trade with SELdulac? (Account 100)

    In choosing the 100 as a partner in the exchange. An e-member committee will confirm the exchange later. Examples: the work of the festival committee and other tasks for the association.

    Do I change already entered an exchange

    Yes, if your partner in the exchange has not yet confirmed the exchange. You can even delete it.

    What if the exchange is not accepted for reasons of balance (limit of + / -500 grains)

    The principle is that each control the balance of the other before entering an important exchange. The treasurer may authorize grain exceeded for a maximum of 30 days.

    What does the column "Status"

    "Green" is a confirmed exchange
    "Orange" is an exchange that awaits confirmation of your partner
    "Red" means that the exchange entered into mediation
    What if

    exchange duplicates?

    If the exchange has not yet been confirmed, the person who took the exchange can remove it.
    If the exchange is confirmed, you can enter an exchange of "correction" (with the same number of grains in the opposite direction with the same person). Put in the description: "correction of the exchange" X "" X "." So the two cancel each other exchanges.
