Video tutorial on this topic: 7: Adding shelf tools to the database
In this section we explain how to add materials, products and shelf tools to the PlanogramBuilder database so you can then create planograms with your own items.
Tip: The process described in this section is for adding one item at a time. You can also use Batch Import Database Items to add several items quickly.
New Item Details for material
Notes for all types of items:
Note: Properties in Item Details are divided into 2 groups:
Tip: If you have activated one or more filter(s), the values used by the filter(s) will be automatically pre-filled in the corresponding text field. (See Item Filters.) You can however overwrite the pre-filled values by typing any other text.
Notes for materials only:
Tip: For materials, first Browse for the image of your material. This will automatically fill the Reference and Name properties with values.
Notes for Products and shelf tools only:
Notes For the fields A, B and C (the default labels are Category, Brand and Product Line):
Note: For the fields 1 to 6, please see Item Custom Properties before entering any value.
Note: The Shape field is used by PlanogramBuilder to generate 3D representations of your products. You can choose the closest matching shape for each product in the drop-down list, or import your own 3D models using the Browse button. Please refer to the Shape property description in Database Item Properties.
Note: With Image1, depending on the assigned shape, you can apply an image onto your item. Click on the Browse... button, browse for your image file, and then click the Open button. See Guidelines for Images for preparing images.
Note: With Image2, Image3, Image4, Image5, Image6, depending on the assigned shape, you can apply additional images to your item, click on Browse..., select your image file, then click the Open button. Only some shapes support more than one image: see Standard 3D Shapes.
Note: We do not provide a database of products with PlanogramBuilder. Typically each client provides or enters directly the information about their products: name, EAN, dimensions, etc. and the image(s) for each product. If you don't have such data available, you may be able to obtain them from the product manufacturer or from third-party product databases, such as the ones listed below:
