Size Spread & Like for Like Forecast Profiles
This past month, we introduced two significant features to Toolio’s Forecasting module: Size Spreads and Like for Like Forecasting. Now these two features are available under Forecast Profiles for you when you want to apply default forecasting preferences for specific groups of items. In order to apply Like for Like and Size Spread, navigate to Forecast Profiles under Item Plan. If you want to update an existing profile, right click on the relevant profile, and click Edit. For like for like, select attributes or items in other categories that the new items may mimic in terms of performance. For size spreads, select a spread from the existing size spreads and this will reflow the forecast to the chosen spread.

Last Imported Time on MP & IP
You can now see exactly when your actual data in Merchandise Plan & Item Plan was last updated, all without leaving the module. On the bottom left hand corner of the grid, users now have full visibility into when their actual data feeds were last imported. By clicking on the Last Imported Time, you can further expand the menu to see the last imported time broken out by each data model.

Scheduled Report Deliveries for CSV & Excel
We’ve listened to Toolio users who would like to have their Toolio reports delivered to them in CSV and Excel format which was previously available in PDF format only. With Scheduled Report Deliveries, you can specify the cadence that you’d like to deliver your report, the format of the report, and the recipients; and it’ll be delivered at the specified time to your inbox. We strongly recommend our users to default to Toolio reports within the product, however, of course, you may have workflows that require CSV and Excel formats and this new feature becomes handy just when you need it! Please note that conditional formatting will not be available for CSV and Excel formats.
