Not sure if it has been mentioned yet on this thread, but I was warned about overlapping shop times a few years ago when I did three mall shops back to back. For instance, I left one store at 6:48pm and entered the next mall location at 6:53pm. MF said that I needed at least 20 minutes between shop times to make my notes. I was paid in the end, but they did not care that the shops were literally in the same area of the mall (almost side by side).
its been proven again & again that not every mser or forum member is bright person. sad but true.@2stepps wrote:
At one time I saw that if you are doing a gas audit that you are supposed to do the report before you do the next shop. Yeah like I do not know how to keep track of what pictures go where. They have this nifty default that the pictures have the date and time that you took them as the default name. Just add a follow-up addition to the name.oh like 20171310_2120 Main sign at night. Buhh sometimes I wonder how bright some people aren't.

This is corny, but it might actually help someone else out who is going to try a route shop. I always snap a photo of the address in my notebook before taking my photos of a gas station, and then at the end, snap a photo of whatever at the time (my steering wheel, me, a raccoon, some bushes) to break it up.
i see your point but what you may want to do in the future is guestimate as best you can when you started the work for one client- and use a totally different time for the other client. since they are two separate reports-- you will probably have to treat them as totally different shops with their own times. The MS computers will automatically read a time discrepancy (overlap) if you don't.
