Just a minor thing probably not even a bug but a potential improvement.

Apparently the end of free position switching report does show all players where this date is in the future but not if it ends at the day of the report.

It would be helpful, if the report would include also the day of the report as the report is on training day and some managers would like to use the last possible training u p d a t e before changing the player to his target position

hmm, do not know if this issue is linked to the change, but I guess it is (file that under never touch a running system )

Today I did not receive any end of free position report despite several players which should have been reported:

You might have a point here. Unfortunately, I cannot test this in my local development environment. I was fixing what I have found, please doublecheck again on next occurance of the report

A possible bug?

According to the Manual ("Players" chapter):
"The 8-week period starts when you get your team, when you buy or draft players, when you negotiate a contract with a free agent, and when a youngster joins your senior team from the Youth academy."

a player pulled today (28 ix '22) - - ID: 101051566
Free Position change 'til 2022-11-23 (i.e. 8 weeks, just like the Manual says)

a player I "inherited" when I took over the team from a bot - - ID: 100948308
Free Position change 'til 2022-12-09

It seems all players I inherited have the same extended free position change. And all players I was responsible myself for hiring - 8 weeks.
If it's indeed a bug, please give me a few days warning before you fix it (I took over the team in late July so most of my senior team players are already past the 8 weeks).

(I apologise for bothering you with it in case it's not a bug but a welcome bonus for new managers. I looked in the manual and in Jack's blog and have not found any information about it, but I may have simply overlooked it.)

Please check your roster. The initial free period is 20 weeks and applies at the moment where you take over your new team. You should be able to confirm this for all the original players. The manual did not tell about, which is a mistake, of course. But it was that way for many many years. I changed the manual.

The 8-week period starts when you buy or draft players, when you negotiate a contract with a free agent, and when a youngster joins your senior team from the Youth academy. If you get your new team after registering for RedZoneAction.org, the period for switching positions without facing penalties is 20 weeks long.

I suspected You changed it at some point. And nobody reported probably because usually bugs that affect you negatively are faster to be reported ;-)

Thank you for taking time to fix it in the manual!
