Sharing Drills with Coaches and Players

The FastTrade System

Non-FastDraw Users - FastTrade is a feature in FastDraw that allows you to send drills via e-mail to other coaches and players. A drill that is sent to coaches or players who do not have a FastDraw license will arrive in the recipient's e-mail inbox, and they can view your drill in their e-mail browser or web browser.

FastDraw Users - Multiple drills, and also playbooks, can be sent at one time to other coaches who use FastDraw, where they can import the plays directly into their own FastDraw library.

Sending a FastTrade from FastDraw

In your Play Library, select one or more drills to send by making a check mark next to the drill, and then click the FastTrade menu from the top menu bar and select Send Plays.

In the Send Plays menu that opens, you can specify your recipients by entering their e-mail addresses in the To section (separated by commas), change the Playbook Name, and include a Message to the recipients.

Receiving a FastTrade

When you receive a FastTrade, the play will be sent to your FastTrade Inbox. To access your Inbox in the FastDraw software, click the FastTrade menu in the top menu bar and select FastTrade Manager. In the FastTrade Manager window, your received FastTrades will be listed under the Inbox tab. To add the FastTrade to your library, place a check mark next to it and then click the Add to Library button.

Finding Your Imported Play

When you receive a FastTrade from another coach, you may find that without knowing the exact Team and Series labels for the drills that were sent to you, you may have some trouble locating them in your library. Here is an easy way to identify your drills so that you can organize them in your library.

When you add one or more drills to your library from your FastTrade Inbox, a playbook containing the drills is automatically generated and placed in the FastTrade folder of your Playbook Library.

To identify the exact location of your drills in your library, click the Playbook tab to view your newly created playbook. In the Playbook Editor (center window), the drills in the playbook will be listed by Play Name, (# of frames), Team Name, and Series.

Use these values and the play filters in your Play Library window to locate your plays. Once you find your plays, you can change the values for Season, Team, or Series to assign your new drills to the correct location in your library.
