    Have you read the information on the website telling you what
    exactly is unaddressed mail?


    Does the card have your name or your address on it? If not, I would take it that it would be counted as unaddressed mail but I have never received a red card when I have been doing the survey so perhaps someone else will be able to comment.

    Two things spring to mind.

    Firstly, UNTIL you actually have the item of mail for which the red card has been left, you cannot know whether it has been CORRECTLY delivered OR MISdelivered

    When you have collected it, or successfully had it REdelivered, you might just find that it has NEXT DOOR's/STREET's/TOWN's address on it and it's not yours.
    Of course if this was the case you might only find out IF you collect it .....
    ... since IF it does NOT have your address on it, it might be REdelivered "correctly" and you will never receive anything.

    Secondly, I'd suggest the RECEIVED date is not the day of the card being left but the day you have it REdelivered presuming you choose this method.
    Not sure WHEN to enter if you collect it!

    Hmmm - the card is delivered by the postie and has my name and address correctly - but it's not a mailed item. However, if I'd been there at the time - there would have been a correctly delivered item to log. So are they tracking the time it took from sender to recipient's address? If yes, then logging the time of the card and ignoring the time you actually got it would be more accurate. If no, then getting a re-delivery and logging the actual time of arrival in recipient's hands is a different measure but still useful. But if I get a card and choose/am not able to go to the DO for 4 days then the delay is of my making, not RMs so it isn't a fair measure to log the latter date. To make it more confusing, my DO is open on Sunday afternoons and that's when I'm most likely to go so logging it as received on Sunday is going to cause problems isn't it?

    I have made a discovery... Up to now, I have only ever seen the "Other items not Listed" hamd tile - which disappears when I click the date. Today - two new tiles have appeared with leaflets to look out for. If I select the date first - the "other items" hand disappears but not the specific items. If I select the the "other items" hand I get the error message to select a date. If I select a "specific item" tile it ticks that box but no error message.

    Which makes me think the designer/coder assumed you would always follow a sequence of tick the specific items then tick for other items then select date. They didn't plan for no specific item received but other item received as a possibility.

    Tuesday - I got the two pictured items. Ticked them, ticked the hand to say I'd got a third item, chose the date hit Submit. All worked fine.

    Yesterday - I got the two pictured items again. [See upthread for discussion of that...] Ticked the hand to say I'd got two items, chose the date hit Submit. All worked fine.

    So I don't know if there's been a patch to fix the issue or the fact that I have now ticked the specific pictured items has (re)set a flag somewhere.

    The survey website has unilaterally decided to remove one of my postboxes from my list. is there a way to find it from the address? The website is asking for the post box number and without going out to look I have no idea - was hoping to google and enter the information today.

    Couple of problems, for some reason I can't get the "pop-up" bubble, that contains the ID, postcode, description and times etc., to display on my Samsung tablet.
    Tried a few things, both desktop & mobile site but no joy.
    A tap on the mouse pad or single left click and it works on my old XP laptop. ODD !

    The other thing is you can't get the same "pop-up" bubble to work IF you cant get to click on the marker for an individual box.
    IF there are 2 boxes close together, literally side by side, then you end up with a green circle with a 2 in the middle which is not clickable.
    I have at least half a dozen of these quite close to me. The 2nd box is a Business box for the franked mail that is deposited in a zipped up pouch or similar.

    And I've just discovered another
    There is not a marker for the external "wall" post boxes at 2 of the Post Offices in the city centre, including the Crown Office
