How the Hell do you sheet these? I havent done one for years, but I got two today. There used to be a way to enter it AS a fur call, but I couldnt find it. Used to be in the screen with "driver followup".
A Fur call is when you have had too much to drink and can no longer swallow. It is sheeted as #3 on the special soft key. I believe the #3 has something to do with 3 sheets to the wind. The time allowance for it is minimal though and I would not recommend using it.
A "Fur Call" is an empty box, supplied by a furrier to UPS. Usually a flat long box with tape tabs attached. It will have a label to the customer who has a fur coat or whatever and another label to the fur storage co. The purpose is to pick up a fur coat and send it to summer storage. You must witness the fur being placed in the box and you seal it up or the old lady will screw up the tape for sure. I usually ask them to double check the pockets! I have seen my fair share of these parcels and believe me, the people who get them are pains in the neck. Anyway, to sheet one I think you just use the CALL key on the DIAD III. Whatever you do, as you have been told, sheet it. These days, a wrong entry is better than none at all. I hope this explanation helps.
Hehe weird stuff. I've been around 8 years and never seen one of these, but always wondered what FUR meant on the DIAD. Never wouldve guessed that it actually referred to fur. Must be a holdover from when we specialised in department store deliveries. Now, could someone tell me what PAS and loos are?
There are at least two different ways that we download information into. One is straight to a printer, and the other is a download into their computer system. I use the later. You take the same device that you use on the printer, and hook it onto your diad. In the main screen hit 8, then enter over the stop that is highlighted. Takes about 10 seconds per 200 packages. I think that to the printer is 7 from the same screen, but takes much longer. HEll I dont know, i just do it without thinking anymore.
THat allows the ability to double check, since they also scan every package that comes in. A real must in a secured area.
