Could someone post the instructions for the FOS. My mangled box didn't have any. Please and thank-you!

Anyone here got a photo of what the locker t-frame is meant to look like? POG images are not a good reference to go by.

Regarding FOS overhead. Careful which string attachment you use.

Left is used to dangle the flat, little stars to the bottom of built stars. Right 6" ones are to connect 2 built stars together so that it angles.

They don't clearly tell you which is which until the last step when it is already hooked to ceiling.

Yeah, I didn't attach my stars together. I couldn't envision it making much difference, so I left it.
I have no intention of doing that. Fuck off with this angling shit, it's bad enough that I have to build and put up 38 stars.

It will add your pretie locations to the pick label of the carton, so when the merch. comes off the truck, it can easily be sorted, stage, and pushed w/o using a zebra. This is mainly used in upcoming transitions, search for pre-tie schedule on workbench on when and which dept should be pretied. Usually you want to do this 2 weeks in advance.

Pre-tying will not automatically tie your POG, you still have to do it manually the day it sets. DO NOT tie it earlier than the day it sets! Only pre-tie.
What happens if a pog is tied early then set date??

Can you ask your hubby or your connections on why salesplanners have schematics in reverse??? I did chemicals and all were like that, but did notice this for awhile now.

I'm going to go ahead and guess whoever is in charge of creating them somehow has their default set to right-to-left instead of left-to-right. At least on an endcap that is an easy fix; inline like that could be tricky. Lol

Oh, is THAT why it always says 0 on floor when we're forced to set early?

So, is it just me or is the damn GoKart an unneeded hassle. No training on how to use it. I got no info on how to get rid of all my composing orders, though all my orders from the last year all say composing. Do I have to clear them all? And I've got one order in there that has no items, is $0, says "Transient," and won't delete.

Why do they make everything so damn difficult? It's like it's the opposite of the real world where progress makes things more iser friendly. This seems as complicated as possible. Why not just go ahead and make it in Cyrillic?

I attached mine, mainly because I followed the recommended placements and I think a few of them kind of needed to be attached to end up in the right spot and I didn't feel like moving the clip on the ceiling again.

I think the main thing it did though was keep the "front" of the flat stars (the side with the sticky star on it) facing forward. But yeah, probably not a big deal to just skip it, especially if your placements look ok.

Oh no, I just meant it could easily start looking like crap if they aren't spaced well. So as long as it looks ok, I doubt anyone would care.

Hell, even if it didn't look good, it seems that half of the TLs don't even notice.
