  TIPS when ENTERING TAG

   •When sorting is completed, enter your items into the system.  Go to the tab, Enter Items.  By sorting prior to entering, you will save a lot of time because you will only have to reenter the price and description for each similar item.  You also can avoid using the mouse entirely by simply using the tab button, selecting the first letter of each entry in the drop downs and the enter key to add items.

  

PRICE, DISCOUNT, DONATE & SIZE - are self explanatory 

  

Description Field: Type your description being careful to stay in the box provided.  Try to not use capital letters. 

TIP:  Type the first line with the words that will be consistent from item to item.  For example, let’s say you have 10 Gymboree items.  Type Gymboree in the 1st description line and give more details on the 2nd line. That way, you do not need to retype Gymboree over and over.  Another example for the first Description Line is “New” or Gently Worn, etc.

IMPORTANT!  It is very important not to use too many CAPITAL letters because you will have to edit those items prior to printing.   The capital letters take up more space then allowed.

IMPORTANT!  Do not photocopy your tags. Use your quantity box for printing multiple tags with the same price of a simular item.

  IMPORTANT!  It is very important not to type your letters too close to the edge of the description box or you risk having to edit your tag because it will overrun the tag.  Use the second description line to complete your description.

  

Category:  Choose the Category either with your mouse or by typing in the first letter of the category you want (which is faster).  Take a few moments to familiarize how the categories are set up.

  

Click on “Add Item” OR click the Enter button.  The system will add the item to the bottom of the screen for you to view and will automatically save the item.

  

IMPORTANT PLEASE NOTE:  Notice at the bottom that all of your items are added to the bottom below the entry form.  If you leave this tab or are timed out, then all of the items at the bottom of the page will disappear.  DO NOT WORRY.  They are still in the database and can be accessed via the Manage Inventory Screen.

  

The system will time you out after it remains idle for 15-20 minutes.  So try to sort them before you start tagging.  If the system times out, you lose the efficiency of the system, because you will have re-enter all of your information again for the next tag.

  

MORE TIPS

•If you need to edit anything, go the Manage Inventory screen.  Here you can print inventory reports, mass edit items or individual items, and also see a Projected Settlement Report based on the items you have entered into the system. PLEASE REMEMBER IF YOU EDIT A TAG AFTER YOU HAVE PRINTED IT YOU MUST PRINT A NEW TAG TO GET CREDIT FOR THAT ITEM.

  

•Printing can be performed at anytime, at intervals or all at once when you finish entering your items.  Please make sure that your tag paper consists of only light, pastel colors except for light or dark blue. You must also use cardstock paper (at least 60# or 65# cardstock).

  

•Once your tags are printed, make sure the bar-code is clear and is not excessively dark (use ‘normal’ setting when printing – NOT BEST quality), then cut on the lines and safety pin to left shoulder or right side if the clothing is facing you.  When applying tape to the toys, equipment, etc. please do not put tape on the bar-code.

  

  

How can I make the entering of items even more efficient?

  • Plan time tag your items.  It is more efficient if you tag many items at one time, because you will not be required to reenter any of the fields (except price).  All of the fields will remember the previous information except for the price.   The efficiency comes in when you can tag for at least 15-30 minutes at a time.  Also, the system logs you out if you are not using the system after 15-25 minutes, so you do not want to sort as you are tagging, because you could end up timing out.

  

  • Sort your items before you enter them by GENDER then SIZE – very IMPORTANT!

It will save you time in the end if  you do this step upfront.

  

  • Use Tab button instead of Mouse when moving from one field to the next.  Click on “Enter” when complete.  Using the mouse will slow the process down.

  

  • Type your choices instead of choosing the field with your mouse.  When using the drop down screens (price, size, and category), type the first number or letter of what you want to enter. Then continue to press the same number or letter button until you find what you want. Then click the tab button and it will move you to the next field.

  

  • Description line HINT: When you have repeat items, keep the description line generic and just adjust the price and hit add item.  Better then typing every line  every time!  Be careful not to run your item descriptions to the very edge of the description box or you may have to edit them later. Avoid using too many capital letters.
