    Hi everyone

    I listened to every single trading feature request that you made and am currently developing that perfect trading system you asked for. However it's a very overwhelming task and any help testing it out, telling me about bugs and problems you come across, missing features, etc. would be greatly appreciated. This is your chance to make this system awesome so please help me by providing as much feedback as you can.

    Also please note that this system is still in development phase and is NOT a released product. So do not use it for real trading yet (we'll constantly delete the data on there). You can use it for testing purposes: test it as much as you like and even enter gibberish or try breaking it by entering wrong info etc. and letting me know if it doesn't behave as it should. The more feedback I get the better I can make it.

    Because it's still at a very premature stage it will not look that exciting... don't worry it'll work better and look better as it develops

    Here is the system so far:

    Thanks for all the effort you are putting into this! I like the "Source" category and assume this would be tearpad, printable, mail-out, facebook, etc.?

    I don't think you need the time for expiry.

    I am guessing
    cat (food, beauty etc)
    Source (manu, insert)
    Type (printed, tearpad)

    Source and Type could be all in one if so? It currently says type 1, type 2

    Type options
    Printed/Internet
    Mailout
    Tearpad
    Insert
    Save.ca

    Maybe Category options too from dropdowns

    * I also got this error: field_value_should_be_less_x
    * Agree that expiry date does not need hr/min.
    * For expiry - I could not figure out how to change the month to a future expiry date.
    * Not sure that we need columns for both source and type? The only time I think type is interesting is if it's printed (see next bullet) - presuming Source is intended to identify websaver, tearpad, etc.
    * I would suggest a "Comments" column for anything additional we may need to type in for a coupon - ie. can stack, printed

    Will this new system automatically expire coupons?

    Import feature is a bit buggy, you have to download the excel sheet (which should me made very clear because many people keep a current excel sheet which they will try to upload) but when you download it, it separates by tab which seems to also separated Date Added into two separate columns which it then does not recognise as its original sheet

    You're welcome!

    I'm not exactly sure why we have source and type... I remember I made this choice based on the recommendations I got. But maybe source/type should be a single field?

    Source/type .. not sure

    As detailed as ones here:
    http://couponscanada.smartcanucks.ca/
    or no?
    probably not?

    So I guess some of the main issues we need to think of is whether Type/Source should be a single field.

    Also keep in mind that the items being traded will be expanded beyond coupons... I'll allow trading of:
    - Gift Cards (since system will have more efficient ratings system)
    - Other stuff?

    So keep that in mind when thinking of the fields we need to add/omit.

    Will we still be able to keep lists in the "about me" section of our profiles?
    These lists are an easy copy/paste when signing up for trains.
    Downloading an excel sheet and recopying it into a neat list is much more time consuming.
