New Bay Parameters

image

Before you add a new bay to your planogram, specify its parameters in this panel. A preview of the bay with is displayed in the upper right area.

Note: the bay preview is displayed with visible edge lines to make each element clearly distinguishable. You can also turn this mode on in the planogram viewing area if you wish (see Show Edges).

Note: the bay attributes will be kept for the next time you run the application.

Note: you can further customize bays in the Modify Bay task. For example you can add and remove, resize, re-position or change colors of bay elements.

Bay Parameters

Bay dimensions

Specify dimensions as follows (Note: The bay depth is determined by the combined dimensions of the shelves and back panel if any. See below for specifying these parameters.):

Overall width specifies the horizontal width of the bay. You can also use decimals.

The bay height can be specified with either one of the following methods:

A)     Choose the Overall height and the Number of shelves if you know the bay height.

B)     Choose the Gap between shelves and the Number of shelves if you the space between each shelf is more important than the overall height of the bay.

Overall height sets the overall height of the bay.

Overall height radio button: Upon typing a value for this parameter or manually checking the corresponding radio button, the Overall height will be constrained to the set value. This way, editing other values such as Number of shelves cannot change the Overall height of the bay, but will modify the Gap between shelves instead.

Gap between shelves sets the vertical empty space between shelves. All shelves are evenly spaced.

Gap between shelvesradio button: Upon typing a value for this parameter or manually checking the corresponding radio button, the Gap between shelves is constrained to the set value. This way, editing other values such as Number of shelves cannot change the Gap between shelves, but modifies the Overall height instead.

Number of shelves tells how many shelves the bay will feature.

Note 1: Changing the number of shelves influences the Overall height if you checked the radio button in front of Gap between shelves. Inversely, changing the number of shelves modifies the Gap between shelves if you checked the radio button in front of Overall height.

Note 2: base and top cover don't count as shelves.

Main color

Allows setting the color of the bay structure (base, back and sides). Click on a rectangle, and then choose a tint with the standard Color Dialog.

Note: shelves have a separate color parameter, so you can make the shelves a different color than the rest of the bay. See Shelf color.

Shelf Parameters

Shelf Dimensions

Shelf width is the width of the shelves not including lateral sides.

Shelf height specifies the thickness of the shelves.

Shelf depth is the depth of the shelves not including the back panel.

Shelf Margins

Shelf front margin sets how far products will be placed from the front edge of shelves.

Shelf Color

Allows selecting the color of the shelves. Click on a rectangle, and then choose a tint with the standard Color Dialog.

Transparent shelves

Specifies whether shelves are translucent or opaque.

Base Parameters

Base

This check box allows to choose whether you want a base on the bay.

Accept items

Defines whether you can drag items on the base of the bay. Sometimes products are placed directly on the base, while in other cases the base should not accept any products.

Base height

Adjusts the height of the base. This setting also influences the bay Overall height or Distance between shelves (according to which radio button is un-checked).

Base depth

Sets the depth of the base, which can be different from the other shelves.

Top cover Parameters

image

Top cover

This check box allows choosing whether you want a top cover on the bay. This is for example a light box.

Accept items

Defines whether you can drag items on the top cover of the bay.

Top cover height

Adjusts the height of the top cover.

Top cover depth

Sets the depth of the top cover, which can be different from the other shelves.

Back panel Parameters

Back Panel

This check box specifies whether the bay has a back panel. You may not want one if the shelves are held by small cables for example.

Accept items

Sets whether you can drag items on the back panel of the bay.

Back panel top margin

Gives the vertical space between the upmost shelf and the top of the back panel. This setting also influences the bay total height.

Back panel Left and Right margins

Sets the horizontal space between the side of a shelf and the same side of the back panel. This setting will influence the overall bay width value if you set a positive value, effectively making the bay wider than the shelves.

Hook length

Specifies the distance from the back panel to the tip of pegs. Their specified length is used to determine how many times each product is repeated in depth on the hook.

Note: The actual hooks are created automatically when you place pegged products on the back panel. The pegs can also be hidden if you prefer (see Show Peg Hooks).

Back panel depth

The thickness of the back panel.

Side panels Parameters

Side panels

This check box allows choosing whether you want side panels on the bay. This setting also influences the overall bay width.

Side panel width

Represents the thickness of each lateral side panel.
