What's the deal with the Otter box display rolling rack or whatever that is? I heard it's for some kind of event but there's no POG number for it.

It usually comes out whenever there is a new iPhone and is supposed to be filled with corresponding new iPhone accessories. It is a hit or miss on having a pog. It used to come pre-filled, but the last couple years we've been left to figure out ourselves.

Check under dept 107 in online planogram for the POG. If I remember correctly, the POG name had iphone in it. It was supposed to set two weeks ago, but the fixtures came late.

Anybody else struggling with no label strips this week? Rugs and wine have been a bitch! I have not received my label strips as of today! And not really getting support with payroll. It takes just a little longer to set without label strips and pushing, OMG! 😡 I'm afraid for next week with the entertainment transition!
We are behind enough we've been able to put it off. End of week was delivery for the strips... noon ish on friday is my ups delivery they normally come on. So yup.

It came two weeks ago or more for me, I think. We can't use anything with the preprinted wage, we're over the national standard... so I've stopped worrying since we can't use any of it.

So fucking stressed out right now, two weeks ago I ended up having to help the pog team build some furniture displays because the truck people who are supposed to build it got held behind by our evil backroom / truck lead. So about two and a half days I did nothing will build furniture and put my signing workload to the side.


Then I went on vacation ( and surprise surprise so did the pog team leader) for a week only to come back and find out that none of my signing workload in small app was done. the person they assigned to do my workload is a proficient truck team member who ended up getting held back every single day and not allowed to go to signing until the last day when the POG team basically begged.

So right now I'm basically a week and a half behind doing displays and Furniture, displays in small app, and all the other random signing.

But I only have four signing shifts this week of four hours because I am a dedicated stalker in electronics two. So right as I'm getting into the groove of things I have to drop everything and go push the truck.

Sorry rant over

Wait, you can't print to the Lexmark printers in 2.0?

I don't like the zebra labels either, but it'd be so much faster than using the line listing, it'd make up for it to me

Unless they changed something from last week, you can only print a batch with the Zebra printer now. I made a batch of price labels for small apps displays using 2.0 and it didn't show up in the batch list on the computer. Had to rescan in 1.0 and the batch was there. I believe the same is true for pog batches. And with 1.0 gone as of today, now there is no other option.

Not that I am are of. 2.0 rolled out for us at the same time as the new phone call app, but yesterday they took away 1.0 and in its place on the Zebra is an app exclusive for price change with a yellow $ symbol. That app wasn't working well yesterday so price change had to use PDAs to scan because 2.0 doesn't have price change at all.

I like some of the features included in 2.0 (EXF, mispick, all pog info on one page), but there are still kinks to work out and I'd like the option to make a label batch again, but I've heard Store Applications on the computer is going away when the PDAs do so maybe that's why it's gone.

So what happens if there aren’t enough Zebra printers? All labels will be printed on the Zebra printers? That is going to look terrible.
My PTL said we are getting more printers sent in (probably with the new shipment of Zebras) and she just found 2 unused ones in the office too.

And I fully agree, really dislike the look of printer labels. So tacky and cheap looking.

Can’t wait to see the first POG batch of labels printed off-center, and still put up. :rolleyes:

Can you imagine printing all the labels for a Seasonal set? Especially Christmas? So many pegs ....

Well, I bet you can imagine it.

:shakes fist at corporate:

My store has mywork 2.0 and we've been able to print to the normal signing room printer. Under the options, go to signs & labels, then choose printer(orange bar). There should be a Sign & Label option as well as a Stores Workbench option. Choose the Sign & Label option should go to the printer in the signing room. It will bypass store applications and go straight to the printer.

Thanks for the tip, I'll try that when I get in today! This will seriously make my day!!

Ahh I’ve been on vacation but I heard nothing about it before I left. You seem to be a store that early sets a lot so I thought maybe you’re a test store that gets everything early! Hopefully it’s there when I go back Monday.

Store Applications will indeed be going away with the PDAs.
One store in the company hasn't had PDAs or StoreApps since July and it's been going good.
