That being said, I do think the new ones are much better. The ability to easily card multiple items at once is really good. I recently covered a CMB route for 2 months, and being able to scan the CMB and then switch to parcel scanning is a breeze compared to the old way!

How exactly is this done? Is it in the 'Depot scanning' section?

There was a way to do this with the old ones.

I was having the same problems. So after figuring it out it was...

Make sure you're in deliveries
Enroute
Pick "New Stop" dark blue button
At the top is a blue bar, select the 3 dots at the top right. It should have some options but more importantly it should say "all items" and select "card"
A new screen should show up and you can scan the parcel and then the card (or vice versa) as I've noticed.
After it will say reason why and I usually write in not home.

I usually do this since at an apartment I usually get a few parcels and the customers are not home.

I'm just going off hand since I don't have a scanner in front of me to verify my answers.

but you can just scan the bar code then the sticky one without even doing anything. what does grouping them help with ? i only go into 'new stop' if i have a package that fits into the mailbox or XYZ (we're not allowed to leave anything in a 'safe location' here) and doesn't need a signature. i do find it annoying that it doesn't recognise when it DOES NOT need a signature and if you forget to do new stop. why ? anyway, for signatures shit, i find it great, just scan the original thing then the sticky one. done.

Oh ok, same screen setup as the depot scanning screen. Good to know, cheers.

Hope you're all enjoying the weekend!

But anyone will work on this Monday?
I know it's a off day for the most of us but heard there will be some parcel run?

I don't believe there is any parcel delivery. They are having the depot support staff come in on monday to sort the parcels to the walks on both Monday and Tuesday. Yes, Tuesday is going to suck for all the carriers.

Hamilton has parcel delivery and RPO clearances Monday. I think it varies region to region.

I'm doing parcels tomorrow. Hard to pass up double-time, might be the last time before they use PT/terms for weekend delivery. I'll only do 5hrs or something.
