    I have been retraining for last month and have on Saturday received items to send to Mr Hussey rather than Mrs Smith. They have enclosed with the posting items the first class stamps and a roll of sellotape but I thought I should also receive the presentation stamps as well. Perhaps someone could advise me. Thanks,

    The app keeps shutting down on me whenever I enter a received item or post an item. I've sent tickets (annoyingly they close every thread they respond to) and they are aware, but it is frustrating.

    I really wish they wouldn,t use this expression "ticket" or "ticket has expired". I,ve had problems figuring out what the heck they mean. Does this makes me technically illiterate ???

    exactly the same happened to me yesterday...I emailed them at the end of last week and assumed the newly appeared items were in response to that email,however it looks like its an auto generation as you have I think received exactly the same as me.
    I have had the long running battle of getting back on the panel since July and this is now the 5th time in that period that I re start training.
    I wonder how long this stint will be before I'm dropped again

    Fun today, the post office tried to charge me only £3 for a parcel that Kanter were saying should be £5.10.

    I didn't know what chaos it could cause if that was discovered mid route or the recipient was charged an excess, so I asked the CA to measure and check, should be £5.10, so corrected in time. I did wonder what would have happened if I'd let it go and whether there could have been any comeback on me.

    Silvercar, the same happened to me - I messaged Kantar, they asked for PO address, date & time & said they would note it down. I did read in the Q&A afterwards that we should accept whatever the PO staff say. I did still receive the £2 incentive

    Posting details on envelope
    I wish I could report the idiot who wrote the posting details on a test item I received recently. If I do I will probably be thrown off the survey even though I have done nothing wrong so they will still be able to continue with impunity as I am not taking the risk. Just ranting at someone's in ability to do the survey correctly.

    Sadly I think few panelists read this thread so sadly the individual may not realise they're jeopardising the process.
    If you still have their panelist details which came inside the envelope you can tell Kantar and they will probably warn the person not to do it again.

    I was reported for writing "monday am" on the back of an envelope! I received a message within the app.

    I doubt it effects the receiver.

    (PS lesson learned, though I fail to see how that could jeopardise the survey)
