If we’re thinking of the same thing my old store did one flat cross bar all the way across the bottom in each section so like 4-5 bars and each section put 2 of those softlines outpost things and hang all the style bars on those. You can fit 15-20 per bar and they don’t take up a ton of room. Also if you have some blank wall that doesn’t have and spines or anything for shelves you can just I’ve your PML screw in some long hooks or something to hang them. How do you store them? Do you have them all in the shelf spines?
Pretty much how you said but it takes up an entire wall. I use the cross bar with holes and has the u shaped bar kinda like the scales and clocks fixtures and they hang off that.

If you guys have any pictures of how you're organizing softlines fixtures I'd love to have a visual reference. I've only been at my current store for a few months and inherited a HUGE mess. We all share a fixture room, don't have a separate one for style and the dangerous and pokey area I'll have to organize is at the very end of the fixture room way past many booby traps. I've seen pics of some stores storing extra waterfalls all on a 4ft faceout bar that's set into the spines for storing shelves and I like that.

Is there a proper list of the ism we're tossing or even what the new ism is? I'm not tossing literally everything until I have something to replace it with

Working on streamlining the small appliance displays, and want to create a spreadsheet for each pog. Was hoping to be able to print the line listing like when you pull a pog up on the zebra (with the products AND displays), but it appears that it is no longer functional on Online Planogram. Is there another way to do this?

Your best bet would be to print all the labels and get the DPCIs off the display labels.

What's the spreadsheet for exactly? I never had to make one, it's easier to just place the display labels where they go on the shelf.

That's what I was leaning towards and what i'm probably going to have to do.

Working to make sure all the displays are present, audit out any missing, it's a big mess and was left pretty haphazard during the October transition. SD had me captain PLUG through fourth quarter, so it's my project to tinker with stuff over there as I have free time

It could be under the virtual display pog on a zebra, I think.

Like @Walmart said, it will be much simpler to just place all the display labels on the display shelf. Treat them the same as you would sellable product. This has always been my method as it's easy to audit, easy to see where displays need to go, and the display DPCI is visible which makes it easy for anyone to help maintain it. I also stick display pick labels onto the back) bottom of displays for easy reference to match up to the labels.

Well, it's official. I have no more "responsibility" for any ISM anymore. The reigns have been handed over to my VM and I no longer have anything to do with it. I am just another pusher of freight now. They don't even have me do POGs anymore, just push and leave. I'm distraught knowing that my craft has more or less been completely overlooked and that my VM will hardly do anything regarding the task. How far we have fallen. Will continue to check in here every now and then, so keep going strong Signing TMs. Hopefully things will change for the better.

I’ve been waiting for them to tell my signing person. I’ve shown him the January addendum and she just doesn’t get it. Over her head. Or she’s in denial.

That the vml is responsible for all the overhead signing due in January. All of it. Not just Softlines.

Our vm does z e r o signing at our store despite what the new communication says. Our SD said she takes too long doing it so someone else needs to do it 😑😑

So the infants reset went a lot quicker than expected. We're basically almost finished, we only have one more display to actually build. And only three POGs remain. Everything is signed properly.
