How to Cancel or Edit a Working Order

Do you have a working order that you want to cancel or edit? We’ve broken down how to cancel working orders and edit them within the tastytrade downloadable desktop platform, the web-browser platform, and the mobile app.

Desktop Platform

First, we’ll need to locate the order, but where can they be found? They are displayed in three different locations.

  1. Orders window (if the right sidebar menu is displayed): Located at the bottom of the Overview tab in the right sidebar menu.
  2. Positions tab (if the Working filter is enabled): If symbol groups are enabled, it can be located within its respective symbol group. If Symbol Groups are not enabled, then it will appear on its own. Both can be easily identified with a yellow working icon.

  3. Activity tab: Working orders can be viewed when the Working filter is enabled. You will know if working orders are displayed if the Working filter is illuminated yellow.

Replacing/Editing a Working Order

To replace a working order, tap the order displayed in Activity. Four buttons will appear, tap Replace to make changes to your working order. Only the price may be changed when replacing an order. Any changes to the quantity or the strike will require entering a new order.

After tapping Cancel, a prompt will appear confirming your cancellation. Tap Yes to cancel the order or tap No to return to your activity. Tapping Yes will cancel the order, and a prompt will appear from the top of the app indicating that the order has been canceled.
