  1. Was asked to put it into my board today via message and forgot to ask when I got back to the building. Thanks.

  3. Thanks Upstate! If you have time, could you elaborate on what that is supposed to mean?

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    A time Study done "virtually"

    In other words make sure everything is 100% by the books and take all of your break.

    You were OJS'd.
    Instead of a supervisor sitting next to you all day, they had the computer keep track of every movement, scan, GPS coordinate of truck and diad, amongst other things.
    I hope you scanned and stop completed at each door, not in the truck. That makes a big difference.

    I never take the Diad out of the truck. Except for signatures. Which is about 15 a day. Otherwise it sits in the truck on the dash. Been that way since we had paper and clip boards

    I usually do the same.

    But during an OJS, you should stop complete at every residential DR spot and walk every damn driveway you can find and stop complete at the door.
    The computer will tell how far the diad is from the truck, which means you walked it. Basic OJS stuff you would do with the supervisor in the jumpseat.

    That is why many routes lose so much time and get more work added.

  9. I should be good then I suppose. I always scan in the truck and stop complete after I drop it.

    Take the Diad with you, scan the package(s) on the way to the stop, stop-complete at the delivery point.

    It's not hard.

    From what I understand, you just screwed yourself. You lost your walk distances.

  12. Should I be scanning in the truck and not completing it until I get back to the truck then? I'm scanning in the truck and stop completing at their front door.

    Anytime I get my diad and I see it has a code in the board I erase it.

    Scan and complete at door is what I was told to get the correct time. I believe that is the methods, as well. I did what BrownArmy does:
    but that goes against methods too.
  15. Ok was just making sure. You said I screwed myself out of walking distance so I guess you misread my post the first time. Thanks for your input.

    You will probably never get it back-----once they get those figures to match their numbers you are screwed. All you will hear is "see-it can be done" and your excuse as to why will fall on deaf ears.

    I heard different things on virtuals, that they average a few days, and others say just one day. Don't really know.

    We never had "virtuals' in my time. Management had to actually somewhat work for a living.
  19. We just add it at the end of the day if it isn't there.
  20. Scan and complete the stop at the door or as close as possible. In the event you get a DFU, the GPS shows where the pkg was delivered. I read somewhere that the diad takes 3 time stamps for each delivery. One when the first package is scanned, one when the signature (or DR location) is entered, and the last one when the stop is completed.
