Floorplan Labels

Floorplan labels are customizable colorful labels that stick to Gondola Aisles / Endcaps, and are useful for planning product categories and adjacencies. To create a floorplan label, right click anywhere in whitespace or on a Gondola bay, then choose Add Floorplan Label, or use Insert -> Floorplan Label while in Floorplan mode.

The following dialog will appear.

  1. Name: The name that will appear on the floorplan label.
  2. Resize Increment: The number of inches or centimeters the label will resize by when one of its resize handles is dragged.
  3. Label Color: The color of the label. Using specific colors for product categories is helpful for category management and adjacency optimization.
  4. Text Color: The color of the text of the floorplan label.
  5. Movable: Whether or not the floorplan label may be dragged around. It's often useful to lock down your labels on their Gondola once category placements and lengths have been decided so you don't accidentally move them.
The resultant floorplan label. Hovering a floorplan label will display its name and length, as well as info about its containing bay.

The floorplan label may be dragged to be placed on another Aisle or Endcap, or resized by the handles on either of its sides. It will resize in multiples of Resize Increment, so it is best to ensure its Resize Increment is a factor of the total length of the bay or aisle it is on.

Here's what a Gondola fully split up into categories with floorplan labels might look like. Note the Aisle / Endcap / Gondola names have all been changed too.

Remember, at this point, since the Gondola is 100% covered by floorplan labels, it can no longer be dragged by clicking on one of its bays. Instead, if you need to move it, use the drag handle.

Additionally, since the Gondola is 100% covered in floorplan labels, neither the Gondola nor any of its Bays can be selected, so you cannot access the Gondola / Bay interaction buttons via simple selection.

Now, to view them, right click one of the floorplan labels, and choose the Show Bay Menu button.

Now the containing bay of the "Snacks" floorplan label is selected, allowing us to interact with its buttons, and the global Gondola buttons
