View and Edit Item Info

image

The Item Info task lets you view the selected product or shelf tool properties and also override per facing some of the item properties that were pre-defined in the database.

Tip: If multiple items are selected, the values you enter are applied to all selected items in a single operation. See Select Multiple Items for details.

Tip: If you have created a front panel covering your shelves, such as a glass door on a cooler, you may not be able to select any products behind the front panel. Please see Front Panel Visibility for help.

Tip: If you have room elements in your project, you may want to hide them while working with products so the walls are not blocking the view of shelving. See Room Visibility.

Item Properties

image

Name, Width, Height, Depth, Color and Reference (see descriptions in Database Item Properties.)

For products and shelf tools available in the database / catalogue, these properties are read-only and shown for information only. You can still copy the values to the clipboard with Ctrl+C.

For Generic products, the above properties are editable in Item Info because these items are not defined nor saved in the database.

Behavior, Collisions, Facings Deep, Width Gap, Height gap, Depth gap, Vertical offset, Lateral offset and Caption

Although these parameters can be set in the database, you can also set or override the database values per facing in the current planogram project. This is convenient if you need to apply a non standard value for a special use case, for example to put a product on a shelf although it was defined as pegged in the database. Here are their descriptions:

Behavior

Lets you change the way you want to place the selected product(s) on your fixture. See Product Behaviors for details on this property. Note: shelf tools behavior cannot be changed here, but only in the database.

Collisions

Can be enabled or disabled per item in your project for the selected products and shelf tools. See Collisions in the Database Item Properties for details on this property. Also see Collisions for various collision options.

Facings Deep

Specifies the maximum number of times products are duplicated in depth for the selected facing(s). See Specify Precise Facing Count.

Width Gap

Sets the horizontal gap between products with multiple width facings. This setting applies to the selected facing(s).

Note: For products pegged on pegboard type panels, the value entered corresponds to the minimal gap: the product will be placed on the nearest hook guaranteeing this minimal gap.

Height Gap

Sets the vertical gap between products with multiple height facings. This setting applies to the selected facing(s).

Note: For products pegged on pegboard or slatwall type panels, the value entered corresponds to the minimal gap: the product is placed on the nearest hook guaranteeing this minimal gap.

Tip: You can enter a negative value to represent nested products, such as bowls. The value corresponds to the distance the product should “enter” into the one below.

Example of bowls nested using a negative Height gap value

Depth gap

Sets the depth gap between products with multiple depth facings. This setting applies to the selected facing(s).

Tip: You can enter a negative value to represent products nested along the depth axis, such as plate. For negative values, the value corresponds to the distance the product should “enter” into the one behind itself.

Example of products spaced using a 3cm depth gap value

Vertical offset

Lets you shift products higher or lower by a specified distance (pegged products only). This is convenient to define the position of the hanging hole on a product. (Default: 1cm or 0.39")

·         value of 0 = the product top edge is aligned to the peg hole on the back panel

·         positive values = moves the product up

·         negative values = moves the product down

Lateral offset

Lets you shift products to the left or to the right (pegged products only). This is convenient when the product hanging tab is not centered on the product. (Default: 0cm or 0”)

·         value of 0 = the product is centered on the peg hole

·         positive values = moves the product right

·         negative values = moves the product left

Caption

Lets you specify a new text caption value for the special tag shelf tool. This value is normally defined by default in the database as described in Database Item Properties.

 

 

The Depth alignment, Facings wide and Facings High parameters apply to products only. Their values can only be set per facing since they cannot be defined per item in the database. Here are their descriptions:

Depth alignment

Determines whether products are aligned to the back or to the front of the shelf or peg onto which they are placed.

·         front aligns the selected products to the front of the shelf (minus the front margin) or to the fore tip of the peg (= the hook length from the back panel). This is the default value for non-pegged products. Example below:

image

 

·         back aligns the selected products to the back of the shelf or peg, typically against the back panel. This is the default value for pegged products. Example below:

image

Facings Wide

Specifies the number of times products are duplicated horizontally for the selected facing(s). Enter a value or use the plus and minus buttons.

image

Example: a product with 3 facings wide

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

Facings High

Specifies the number of times products are duplicated vertically for the selected facing(s). Enter a value or use the plus and minus buttons.

image

Example: a product with 2 facings high

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