I saw a similar message for every single shop for one particular client. The message said the shop was locked by either another shopper or by MF. I gave up after seeing the same message on about half a dozen shops for the same client. It wasn't even worth it for me to try to contact the Help Desk about this since there were many more profitable shops elsewhere. I was just trying to add on a shop or two from MF close to a shop for another MSC I was doing yesterday.
the ones that I have noticed for me at least that are blocked where by the client ended up being because I had did this exact shop/location 2 months prior and I guess there was a set time limit between shops. I was unblocked the middle of the month, and actually did one of these "blocked" shops again this past month and at a nice bonus for only traveling 5 miles from home.
I am seeing this message "The shop records are locked by another Shopper or MFI Employee. Please select another shop" for three different types of shops. I am wondering if it is an error or something personal? I can assign the fast food shops however. Thanks for any insight.
A couple of months ago I saw this for one particular client. I was not certain if I had done too many for this client within a window of time. It was like that for days. Then they all became unblocked.
I am not certain if it is a matter of rotation or the client having a hold placed on the board. But that seems odd because I see shops there one day, gone for a few, then return. So why would it be locked if they could just remove it for a few days anyway?
I think a shop is locked when another shopper selects the shop but hasnt yet confirmed acceptance. They still have to answer the questions, look at guidelines, select a date, etc. If they decide to not accept the shop, it becomed unlocked. Schedulers might also do the same.
