Bay Editing Options



There are some main options which will affect the way bays can be edited and placed in your planograms.

Free Bays (Bay Placement Mode)

In PlanogramBuilder, you can choose to place your bays in two different modes depending on your needs:

·         Free Bays OFF

In this mode, bays are always placed adjacent to each others. This mode is well suited for planogram projects that represent a single store aisle. Here is an example below:


·         Free Bays On

In this mode, each bay can be freely positioned in your planogram project. This mode is well suited for planograms that represent a more complex retail area, such as non adjacent bays. Here is an example below:


To toggle the Free Bays mode, do the following:

1.      Right-click in the viewing area to display the Context Menu.

2.      Click on the menu item labeled Free Bays.

3.      The Free Bays menu item shows a checkmark if the mode is On.

Locked Bays for Standard Users

Note: Only available to a PlanogramBuilder Administrator

It is possible to completely disable all bay creation and editing features for Standard Users. This is typically useful when one or more PlanogramBuilder Administrator(s) is (are) in charge of creating the bays and make them available to other users as templates or share all Projects.

To disable bay access to Standard Users:

1.      Click on Settings


2.      Under Settings affecting all users, un-check Standard users can edit bays.

When checked, the following applies:

When un-checked, the following applies:

Front Panel Visibility

If you have created a front panel covering your shelves, such as a glass door on a cooler, you will not be able to select any products behind the front panel. In such case you can use this command to toggle the visibility of all front panels. Hiding front panels lets you select and edit products behind the panels. You can then display the front panels again once your planogram is ready to publish.

1.      Right-click on the viewing area to display the context menu.

2.      Uncheck Show Front Panels.


3.      The front panels are now hidden.

Peg Hook Visibility

This command toggles displaying the actual hooks of pegged products. Showing the hooks can help visualizing where the peg is located exactly, including any offset.

1.      Right-click on the viewing area to display the context menu.

2.      Select Show Peg Hooks.


3.      The peg hooks are now displayed as shown below.


4.      Repeat the same command to hide the peg hooks.


Note: The offset can be previewed in database Editor if Peg Hook Visibility is ON.

Note: To show peg hooks in reports, please see the dedicated report setting under the report View Options.
