Just looked at my male shave pog today. Super pissed. Sometime in the last year they sent an updated pog for it that removed all the baskets on the bottom and rearranged everything. So I recycled the baskets. Guess what they are adding back in to the new pog? The fucking baskets. And changing the pog back to what it looked like before. WTF corporate!?! :mad::mad::mad::mad:

I have a bottom row of baskets and a second row of pushers since pptl insisted even though it doesn't work. Glad the baskets are coming back.

I access the labels through store applications on the computer in TSC or in the fixture room by opening the Price Change Workload. You should be able to view each day to see what labels are due by aisle locations or if the POG is not tied, it'll list labels needing to be worked for that particular planogram. I think this is what you are asking.
That’s what I do but the screen is full on backroom pulls that need to be done and ticketed and I can’t scroll pasted those to get to the more recent due dates

Find this grouping of keys on the keyboard and press Page Down. It will take you to the next page. Continue to press this key until you find the most current labels needing printing (hopefully it's just on the second page though, because otherwise.... yikes that's a lot late!).

My biggest issue is gonna be "not enough signholders".

Only missing 3 electric dental displays and 1 electric shave. Only 2 Maybelline signs missing too, and all properly sized pushers. It went pre well.

I do Pixi/Inline Brush/Milani/Covergirl/Glitter/Kids tomorrow so that good streak is TBD.

I haven't come across any displays for dental or electric shave yet. Must be hiding somewhere.

My only signholder missing going into tomorrow is a 12x36 for Loreal. I have an entire tub FULL of signholders and fixtures that I don't need and have no room to store. Only 2 pogs left to set for cosmetics and an entire valley of dental care. Then on to sporting goods!

Speaking of, why did they not send the storewide backer last transition for sporting goods when everything moved around? Not thrilled with having to take peghooks down to swap that out.

My BrTL admits that best practice is "backstock the displays" but then just puts them in the fixture room because that makes more sense.

It's how we get missing displays on the floor quicker.

I have a ton of extra fixtures but the transition communication said to keep all fixtures until August when the new brand launches.... I ended up putting them in repacks and palletizing then in steel

Hmm.....I did not see that in the communication. I will reread it again before tossing anything. But honestly, I have no desire to sit on a pallet of crappy fixtures that long. We are a very space constrained backroom so we don't have the space to give for this.

I read that, but I'm not gonna need any of the small pushers or dividers for this. I'm sure it will be about a pallet of boxes. I may have room if I use the shelf wall.... I've got extra 22" up there for my own storage why not cosmetics? Anyone know the weight max for that wall?

Anyone set Men's Grooming yet? I have transcend lighting but POGs do not state where they go. Any insights would be grateful.

Try being small format with 18 steel spaces and no fixture room ;)

I'm having trouble setting the Flamingo EC. The brackets don't fit in to the pet board
Anyone have issues with setting the flamingo end cap?? I can’t find the backer and I can’t even get the brackets in the peg board

Stick it in the peg hole and use a mallet to smash it down.
