I think softlines was 110,000 the last time I did the scan.
I don’t think anyone cares anymore.
I still get scheduled 5 hours to do the whole store.

Do you have any tips for how to make the % go up faster? I know it can be done as our regular RFID person always gets it done in 8 hours, but I’m sure she knows all the tips and tricks to make it go faster.. like, do you scan freight right away? Do you even scan the Softlines stray bin or does that interfere with OPU rfid tags? Do you scan all of electronics or just the phone charger aisle (with the Heydey?)
You have to do all hey day stuff, which is on multiple aisles and in the backroom. There is also some stuff on the tv accessory back wall, Phillips maybe?, that is included.

For scanning the backroom, do you need to get on a ladder and physically scan every shelf?

The RFID gun is supposed to be able to reach 50 feet. I don't climb ladders unless it's the end of the day and numbers are still low. Then I'll climb the ladders.
I ended up with 95/96% in all the areas. Took me about 5.5 hours total. ETL said they pretty good for my first time and said I didn’t need to keep scanning, so. Only REALLY bad number I got was like 75% in Sunglasses... and I looked fucking EVERYWHERE for those fuckers

Did you pull down the understock doors at the bottom of the displays and scan those items. I found that the scanning wand picked up more if you pulled the bags of sunglasses out and scanned them.

We have these metal white cubes on the sales floor in accessories. The lids come off and there may be merchandise inside.

Ours are drawers and the lids don't come off but the drawer pulls out. I forgot about the bunker in wild fable, though. Wonder if that thing holds any jewelry right now. -_-

With modernization and DBOs not working on non truck days, I wonder how my store is going to have GM do their RFID. I also wonder when Style is going to take ownership of theirs.

Definitely ASANTS..... in our store Style has struggled to get Hardlines and Electronics to take care of their own. I think we are finally getting there. Shoot...I'd gladly trade with them... a mere 10K and 1+K dpcis versus our near 100K.... -_-

Someone posted our softlines break out area from a double truck on reddit. The thing is, it would still look like this if there wasn’t a double truck. I’ve only been able to walk through the area once since January and that was when they sent a group of people from other stores to clean up because Brian Cornell was in town.

This is why I don’t try for RFID. I’m not my breaking my neck for it. I’ll scan the floor and get what I can in the back, which these days isn’t much. There’s also a few pallets or flats of shoes under the steel that’s been there for a while.

Questions for this thread. How does Wifi or lack of Wifi effect the RFID scan? Can multiple people work on an RFID scan at once if we have multiple RFID guns on hand and selected Entire store?

Might be a stupid question but I don't do RFID. What does the percentage mean? Is it how much of the expected inventory you found?

I think someone did mention once that two people can scan at the same time, but I think that was before they implemented different categories to open up and you did certain areas on certain days.

I imagine you need the WiFi so it knows what items it is looking for, unless it is downloaded and stored on the handset which I doubt. You also need the WiFi for it to update your number during the scan, since it submits and stores your progress as you go along.

@CrypticTM You need Wi-Fi to send the scans in as you go, every 10 minutes or so at least (it does this automatically). Idk if more than 1 person can do the scan. As far As I know just 1 TM at a time, but I haven't checked in a while.

@ShortTM Percentage of items expected that were actually found while scanning.

Two people CAN scan at the same time. BUT they both have to be scanning in the same department. For example, two TMs can be scanning in Style, but one TM can't be scanning in Style and the other in Domestics. The system won't allow it

But what if I selected "Entire Store" as the department? Can two people work on it together then? Like, I hit up A&A while the other person does Domestics?

Final question. If I want to redo a specific category that I think didn't get high enough, will that scan overrite the previous scan? Say if someone accidentally "completes" a scan because they had to clock out early or something. Also, what happens if the scan takes longer then the deadline given?
