No that would be bad. With the scanning, you tell the system that the sign has been taken down. Then when all the signs are scanned, a report tells us which ones were not found so we can go check the aisles and pull any missed signs. If you scan them out before taking them down, you risk the chance of greater amounts of signs being missedWould it be workable to scan all the signs out on Saturday night, then have ad setup start at 3:30A and remove the old signs before starting setup on each aisle? Currently, we have part of our Saturday recovery team move to takedown at 10PM. We're considering alternatives, though.
