Self Service in Jordan room 226
- Scan PTAO card with wand style scanner (LS2208). Ensure the red light covers the code, you may need to vary the distance between the scanner and code; a beep and flash of the green light signifies recognition of the code. You cannot successfully scan a PTAO card with the short squat scanner. If your PTAO has a task section longer than 3 characters, we cannot scan a PTAO card; ask staff to print a bar code by an alternate method.
- You may be asked for your name. Use the on-screen keyboard; the
eraser end of a pencil may work better than a finger.
Erase characters with backspace key. If you wait to erase characters, you may have to try to move the cursor to the end of the line.
- Then scan items with the short, squat scanner (you will see lines of light jumping around) or if more convenient, the wand style scanner.
- If you are picking up several of one item e.g 5 bottles of media, you need to scan each item i.e. 5 scans of the media bottle.
- If you are buying a case of an item, scan the bar code from the white folder labeled Bar Code Book containing bar codes for cases of items.
- When finished, touch the Submit Order button.
- If you start an order, but do not complete it, the program will automatically submit the (incomplete) order after 2 minutes.
