Will my II OGS go to the back of the line if I modify it?

    I am trying to understand the details of how ongoing searches work in II. I set up a search in March 2018 and included multiple dates at several high demand resorts in the request for the next two years. Trading power is sufficient, I believe, as I am using Hyatt. So what happens when a week I requested gets deposited, if there are multiple requests but only one week? Does the one who set up the OGS first get the week?

    Then, if I modify my search to include additional weeks or periods in the request, does my request date get reset and it goes to the back of the line? In other words, if I modify my request, do I go lower in the priority, or does the time stamp remain unchanged from the original date the OGS was first set up?

    Trade power is primary, followed by time stamp. There are also blocks for Vistana and Marriott where owners have a priority window over non-owners.

    Once your week is deposited, its trade power isn't really supposed to change. Of course the trade power of where you want to go may go up or down. There really is no line with II based on when you place your request. II bases its line based on the trade power of what you are offering. If you open a request six months ago with a weak unit and someone comes along today with a better unit to offer, they will get the trade before you.

    What I am not sure about is if you are doing a request first search, does altering the request alter your trade power since you are closer to checkin of your reserved unit. Trade power is said to diminish as time goes by. This is why they suggest to deposit early.
