Traditionally, planning for new products can be tricky. Toolio's Hindisght mode, however, allows you to easily use the products you have previously sold, to help build your current assortment. This minimizes the potential for attribution errors in your planning process, and allows you to use historical product performance to guide the forecast for the product this year.
The Hindsight Mode allows you to accomplish the following:
Carry Forward Choices
Create New Like for Like Choice
Assigning a Like for Like Choice for an Existing Line Item
Please see the table below for the different use-cases and steps to achieve them.
New Like for Like Choice
Update a Placeholder
Drag & Drop on top of an existing Choice
