Dash-In shops have new picture requirement hidden in survey ALERT

The list of pictures required in the new guidelines omits the picture of the food item that is required! The requirement is in the survey and is mentioned, briefly, in the guidelines. But it is not on the list of required pictures, which is unchanged from the prior guidelines list.

Honny, also, no specific beverages required, but a selection from which to make a required food purchase. All-in-all, still an easy shop.

That's not the only other new thing. Apparently you're also supposed to ask the food service people a question. Would have really appreciated a heads-up from the MSC that they changed the form radically.
It was a complete redo, but everything was spelled out in the viewable report. I look at that before each shop to make sure I am aware of new requirements.

It sort of is. Apparently they want two photos of the food? I honestly have no idea what they want at this point.
These are the notes for the shop I did last month. I got them from the viewable report.

I've been emailing their help desk all day and they don't have a clue. I guess we just take a photo of it wrapped and unwrapped.
Take a picture of the food wrapped to show if there is a Dash In sticker. Take a picture of the unwrapped, uneaten food. Simple.

Apparently. The guidelines themselves are about as clear as a mud on the issue.

You have to look at the report to see what the requirements are. The client guidelines will have your head spinning.

As too often they are, regardless of MSC.... *We* all should be editing the guidelines for them!

I learn something new every day, but not everyday!
I've learned to never trust spell-check or my phone's auto-fill feature.
Apparently the reports also. There is a section that has one yes/no question. It requires a 5 sentence paragraph.

Yeah.....I'm generally of the opinion that I will not be doing any of these. "Well, read through the whole report form, not the guidelines!" is not really acceptable.
It's still an easy report and worth doing.

The editors should be trained better on the new reports. The questions they ask show a lack of knowledge.

The report requirements should be updated to match the new guidelines.

I'll see. Lol, you can definitely tell who on the boards if from the DMV and who wonder's what the hell we're babbling about.
That's the case with every regional place that is shopped.

Looking at the viewable report is my shortcut for the Dash In shops. It tells me exact what I need to look for and what pics to take. I look at the guidelines to see what food and beverage items I need to order.
