How do I list an exchange?


The most straight-forward method is the Manage Exchanges option which you can find under the People menubar option.

If you've signed up for an event, you will be able to do a mass addition of all other people who had signed up for the event. After returning from the event, log in and go to the listing for the event you attended. At the bottom of the signup list is a button that allows you to easily add other attendees from the event.

If you exchanged with just one person, you can add them as an exchange from their profile. Look for a button near the top-right side of their profile that reads, "Add as Exchange," and click it.

How can I see who has listed me as an exchange?


The short answer: You can't.

The long answer: Atlas Quest will accept anything people enter as an exchange, regardless of whether the account exists on Atlas Quest or not. Some couples or families with individual signature stamps may share an account on Atlas Quest. Sometimes more than one person may share the same trailname but only one can have a specific name as an account on Atlas Quest so the person who you exchanged with may not be the same person you see listed on Atlas Quest. Or perhaps people who enter you as an exchange misspell your trail name and therefore it will not link to your account. Therefore, you can't search other people's exchanges to see who links to you. It's too prone to errors.

Is it possible to record an exchange for each of someone's signature stamps?


Some people have several signature stamps or signature stamps that change over time. At it's essence, however, exchanges are between people, not simply an exchange of stamps. Atlas Quest will only record who you have exchanged with and not how many times you've changed with them. One exchange per person.
