Is cage signing annoying?
if we're talking about the fabric cse then yeah it can be super annoying esp if the aisle has super big shelves. at our store we have cage signing above diapers and i have to stand up on the edge part of the wave and lean way over the safety rail to really stretch in order to reach it.

Wait, takeaways as in they buy the fucking displays?

Is cage signing annoying?
No, takeaways are little slips of paper with the info for that display item. Guests take the paper and either bring it to a TM or Guest Service to have that item brought out from the stockroom. Wasted everyone's time when we didn't have it in back....

Do you have the kitchen corner? If so are your displays on bullnose or standard gondola shelves? I can’t find the plastic cover for the bullnose that goes over the fact tags to hold them in place
I do not have kitchen corner. But I can get you that number. Have it written down in my ring binder!

I have half bullnose and half regular shelves for small apps right now. Been replacing the bullnose slowly and using the flat fact tag holders from floorcare. Looks WAY nicer! (And now I don't have to continually reorder the plastic lip covers that inevitably missing, lol.)

Does anyone's store have CSE that goes above the large furniture POG if it's on the back wall of domestics (the one that has the room essentials desks, office chairs, tray tables, etc)? Ours has a big gap in the upper backer paper that's about the right size for one of the backwall CSE frames, but we haven't had anything up there since our remodel.

@SigningLady Just curious to know if you are coded into the system as a GM Expert or Presentation Expert because the signing specialist at my store is now coded as GM Expert and still has approval to order supplies/fixtures. I wonder if the SD can issue or assign access?

i'm now coded as a gm expert and can still order supplies. i don't think they've taken it away yet? but i also wouldn't be surprised if the sd can delegate access because on the new go cart they have an option for it.

Are you using sap or go cart? Sap is still up but shouldn’t be used to order. I was told they will not end up being ordered. I assume they left it because favorites didn’t transfer and people will want to transfer their lists

but i'll also double check when i'm in again tomorrow because if they only JUST now rolled something out my access might've been taken away for go cart. i ordered something this morning that was immediately approved, but it was also hours and hours ago at this pt.

I decided to log into Go Cart and see what it was like. I am able to add items to a shopping cart, but not authorized to purchase. So from this, I gather I can create a shopping cart and then have my SD log in and approve/reject the order. Interested to see how this pans out!
So you can save a shopping cart and send the link to that cart to other people?

Did your 4th of July headers end up being double sided? Mine are blank on the other side but workbench said set summer prior to July 7th then flip to college

Probably not yet. I expect them to allow access to be assigned to people on an as-needed basis in a few months once they realize that SDs don't want to approve everything.

Well SD, don't tell me we have no hours for signing but then come to me at noon and ask me to take down the Father's Day signing and put up the 4th of July signing. Never mind there were apparently no hours last week either so the pallet is still wrapped in plastic sitting on the dock. If there aren't hours, dump that shit in the compactor. I'm knee did in resetting disposable paper, also late. It's ridiculous that these people want the fat paycheck but not actually manage effectively. I'm tired of hearing .... "We have no signing person and no hours" .... but also .... "We're having a visit! Get the signing up!!!!" You want the money, then your ass can do all the work that has no hours allocated for it. I don't care if you have to stay there 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You're salaried.

I am coded as Presentation Expert. I will ask my SD about the possibility of assigning someone. I'm sure he'd like that, but I honestly have more info about how Go Cart works than he does and I know next to nothing.

I'm not sure how it all works yet. I went in real quick to see what I could or could not do and stopped after seeing I could place things in the cart. Had to get back to working my freight. Hoping I'll find some time later this week to explore it more!

Nope. Single-sided headers only.

Your SD is a liar. There ARE hours specifically for non-pog ISM now. The fuck is the SD doing with them if they are not being used for things like FOS!?

That's just the way it is I guess. I even showed the addendum to them. Oh well. Literally, fuck'em. If they want to pull me from my assigned work to do it, I will. But then that's not getting done. We're about two weeks behind on pogs. We had the ap guy complain today that no revisions were getting done in electronics. Shocker!!! And to top it off, they didn't schedule anyone to do new releases this week or to do the entertainment revisions. It makes me wonder what we pay management for if they can't do their jobs.

Are you assuming because you can log in? Or did you actually successfully order something
lol i ordered something! it was auto-approved like normal.

edit: i need to order a few other things tmrw so i can take a pic of what it looks like when the order goes through if you want. i just don't think my access has been taken away yet for whatever reason. idk if it has anything to do with us being a pilot store for go cart or what.

Probably. One of the perks of being the pilot. Enjoy!
