    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Our center manager made an announcement during the PCM yesterday that we are no longer allowed to use the prerecord function in the DIAD. He told us that one of our drivers had put an air stop in prerecord and when he went to complete the stop it showed as late, due to the change in the time stamp. He told us that rather than use prerecord when indirecting we should just get two separate signatures. He refused to take any questions on this policy change, which was met with a lot of resistance. While I do understand his reasoning, I use prerecord quite a bit and will continue to do so as it is an invaluable time saver.

    Prerecord is periodically a hot topic. Always after someone messes up using it. Mostly it ends up as don't use it but you still can as long as you don't mess up. If you do then it all lands on you for failing to follow instructions. As long as nothing shows up late it gets ignored.

    Don't have any late airs. You'll be discharged for failure to work as directed.

    Tens boxes to apt office is ten separate signatures? Brilliant.

    The only time prerecord can really get you in trouble is when doing your NDA.

    How can you scan a delivery notice if you don't prerecord when delivering to an apts, then to the office?

    The change was primarily for stops with air.

    Are you inferring that, or is that what he said.

    Then the office is closed for some reason, and you either have to go back to each apartment, or hit no delivery notice left on every stop. That was not a well thought out decision at all.

    I have a tendency to over exaggerate stupid decisions that they tell us to do.

    If you're just dumping the packages on the doorman/concierge it would be 1 stop...unless you're talking about a building where they make you deliver them all...then yeah.

    The only time I use prerecord is peak , I will put 30 stops in and when the helper is delivering I will stop complete it

    I'd get it in writing since it goes against the 340 methods. He won't give it to you, so then it is just business as normal.
