On the left side of the screen, your products are listed in a hierarchical menu with 3 levels, each corresponding to a classification criterion. Clicking on the hierarchy on the left filters the products in the catalog on the right side.
When you select an item in the 1st level of the hierarchy, only the items matching your choice are shown at the 2nd level, and so on for the 3rd level.
Note: products with empty values for a given level in the hierarchy are shown in the (undefined) group this classification level.
Tip: You can display all items for any of the classification level by selecting the “*” symbol.
Tip: Navigate in the classification list with the keyboard:
Just above the catalog thumbnails, you can type some text to search and display matching products. When using this method, the hierarchy will be disabled and PlanogramBuilder will look in your entire database to find products matching the text you entered. The search box accepts single or multiple keywords following these rules:
Example: typing frozen CHOCOLATE in the Search by Name box will display all the products containing chocolate AND frozen in their name.
To get back to the classification method, you can clear the search box with the Clear button.
Note: The search function is labeled and applies your text search according to the current type of thumbnail captions. Ex: if you have set your captions to show the product name and reference, the search will look for your text string in the list of product names and references.
