When someone starts working as a loader at my hub, the trainer only teaches them the bare minimum requirements to operate the scanner. They are only shown how to log in and to reset in the event of a scanner disconnect. I've found, through other loaders and by experiment (the button labels are worn off on most of our scanners), that there are a lot of tricks you can do to save time and be more efficient, such as how to link a bag with no label to a feeder. I have tried to find an online manual for these scanners, with no success. If anyone knows any helpful tips or tricks, please post them here. I realize that the scanners probably differ from place to place, so any information about what type of scanner it is would be helpful too. I know, for example, that ours run some version of Windows. Also, don't hesitate to post tips that might seem really silly, as I can remember a time when I had no idea how to adjust something as simple as the volume. Here are a few things that I didn't know when I started: 1. If you get a "Scanner Disconnect" message, remove the battery from the IR piece and then put it back in BEFORE trying to reassociate it. You're much less likely to get a "Bluetooth Association Failed" if you do this. 2. In Control Mode ("C" in the top right corner), you can adjust the volume, the contrast of the display, and activate a bright green light (similar to an Indiglo watch) by pressing various buttons. I don't know which buttons these are exactly, as the labels are all worn off on our scanners, but you'll know when you press them. 3. If you get a smalls bag with no label, you can still link it to the feeder, which is a lot better than taking each package out and scanning it individually. Hit the "-" key to go out to the main options window and scroll down to "Package Inquiry" and select it. Now scan a package inside the bag and press the button below "Bag." Cycle through the ULDs until you find your feeder and then link the bag. This is a much better alternative than scanning each small or, even worse, just throwing the bag in like some people do. 4. You can also use the above method to remove a package from the ULD, in case you have already scanned a package after it. Just follow the same procedure, but instead of hitting "Bag," you hit "Remove." 5. Ever take a shot of packages that won't scan? If they are all from the same place, they will have similar tracking numbers, usually only differing in the last six numbers or so. After key-entering the first package, you can hit F4 to bring up the first six numbers of the last tracking number entered. This saves a lot of time when you encounter those unscannable shots.
