The purpose of this article is to provide you with an explanation of how to use the Live Graphs function when working on a floor plan in the DotActiv software.
Floor Plan Live Graphs
Similar to the live graph function used when analysing a planogram, the ‘Live Graphs’ function for floor planning can be found in the ‘Tools’ tab when working on a floor plan.
With the ‘Live Graphs’ function, you can choose from a fully customisable list of graphs to view alongside any open floor plan.
Please note that the first time you use this function you will be taken to the setup window. This means that you will have to set up your graphs first.
Once you have selected ‘Setup Graph’, from the drop-down menu under the ‘Live Graphs icon, the ‘Live Graphs’ window will open. This window will appear empty if you have not created any graphs yet, as seen below.
Here, you can create and customise the different graphs that you would like to use by clicking on ‘New’. This will open the ‘Graph Properties And Preview’ window, as seen below.
You can now create and customise the graphs that you would like to set up and click ‘OK’ once you are happy.
Once set up, you can simply click on the ‘Live Graphs’ icon and tick the box of the graph you would like to view and it will open up in a dockable window alongside your planogram, as seen below.
The graphs created using this function are live which means that it will continuously update to reflect the data for the selected products on the planogram, as seen below.
Please note that this function allows you to open multiple graphs at the same time.
