Another change I have noticed recently is that when I was picking up those end of month shops, a number of days was available for me to choose. However, once I have accepted the shop, all the other dates disappeared and I was stuck with the date I chose. Therefore, choose your date wisely because rescheduling might not be possible.
Anyone notice that they are now being strict on the "Only do 1 shop per day during the same time range. Time ranges to shop: 6:00 am-9:45 am; 11:00 am-2:00 pm; 2:00 pm-5:00 pm; 5:00 pm-8:00pm; 8:00 pm-close"
That's going to make it difficult for route shoppers. We now have to wait around until the next shop range time. No longer the 20 minutes in between shops.
I was doing between 5-8 FF shops for about the last 10 days of every month for at least the last 3-4 years. The instructions always said not more than 1 shop per meal period but I was told by several schedulers that as long as I waited 10-15 minutes between shops that they would put them in the time slots.
