Do you turn auto print on or is what you referring to something different?
I HAVE TO turn the auto print off for scanning existing style clearance aka further and final. If I set the auto print to "on" the printer will print a ticket for every single item that is scanned whether it is in the current workload and needs to be ticketed/activated or not (in other words activated previously or in previous week).
'Auto print on" all the time leads to double counting items and screwing up counts I think. AP does not love the salvage not found metrics if I counted one item twice and only salvage it once - - or sell only one of the imaginary now multiples on the floor. Those imaginary counts/printed tickets twice for one product ....show up as shortage in during inventory.
Thus having to stop and hit that little print button on the zebra screen every time I want a ticket for further and final is a giant pain and interuptionand slows down progress. It is also a giant pain to have to correct the little tiny grey box that says how many tickets to print everytime in that process as well. Sometimes I have to try to correct the little tiny greybox that says how many tickets to print and hit print-the line moves up on the screen and says the same wrong number that I just corrected- - I correct the little grey box again and hit print again and then with this second attempt we are finally in business. UGGG!
I can only use auto print for first times in style markdowns. And at that there is a pregnant pause to wait for the ticket to come out. And at that I can't scan the next item and get another/next needed yellow ticket until the first has trickled out of the printer. Much slower than MyWork even with good batteries and the newer printers. UGGG!
System in MyWork was:""auto print on" Double beep and print one ticket for every and ONLY a scanned item in the CURRENT WEEK'S WORKLOAD.... not every single cotten-pickin time you scan a clearance item that wasn't going down again.
This is making my Price Change Work Load take 30% or better longer when I have no time to spare.
Style does not have the luxury of just thowing up a yellow clearance label on the shelf and walking away. We have to ticket every single piece.
