Change Product Facing Count

image

image

By default, PlanogramBuilder places each product on the bay with as many facings deep as possible, one facing wide and one facing high.

You can then change the number of facings in each direction for selected products in a planogram.

Facings deep specifies the maximum number of times products are duplicated in depth for the selected facing(s).

image

Example: a product with 4 facings deep

Facings Wide specifies the number of times products are duplicated horizontally for the selected facing(s).

image

Example: a product with 3 facings wide

Facings High specifies the number of times products are duplicated vertically for the selected facing(s).

image

Example: a product with 2 facings high

Tip: you can also change the facing count with the keyboard or Mouse.

Note: Facings wide and facings high count only applies and can only be changed for a facings block which forms a single selectable item. This means that products originally placed on the bay as separate items will remain so and cannot be grouped in a single item with multiple facings, even if they are adjacent. This may be the case for example if you open older projects which did not support the facings wide and facings high parameters.

Note: The number of facings deep placed when you drag a product from the catalog can also be pre-defined in the database for each item. This is useful if you know in advance the number of facings deep you want for a given product. In this case see Database Item Properties.

Change Facing Count with Mouse

  1. Select the desired product(s) (see Select Items). They (It) become(s) highlighted with round handles around the surfaces most closely facing the screen.
  2. If the round handles do not appear on the desired surface, use the Screen Navigation tools such as Orbit to make the desired surfaces face the screen.

  1. Grab a handle with the mouse and drag it in the desired direction(s) until your product(s) reach the desired facing count. The corner handles let you change facings in two directions; while the handles along edges let you constrain the change to one direction.

  1. Release the mouse button when you are satisfied with the number of facings.

 

Tip: With Show Dimensions ON, you can display the dimensions of the resizing rectangle while resizing. This is useful if you know in advance the space to allocate to the product.

Tip: With Show Dimensions ON, you can also display the actual exact dimensions used by each facing block by pressing on a handle of the desired facing block.

You can enter precise values to edit the Facing Count in Item Info task.

Facings deep: Enter a value or use the plus and minus buttons. If the shelf/peg is not deep enough to place the specified number of items, the number of items is automatically limited by the available space. If you type in auto, the number of products is automatically adjusted to fit the shelf depth or peg length.
