Note: For the time being, Size Curves are only enabled for customers using allocation.

Toolio has been utilizing Size Spreads which will soon be replaced by Size Curves. There are two specific use cases for Size Curves:

  1. Static Size Curves: Users would like to define the size curves based on a manual entry or through imports (will be introduced soon).

  2. Dynamic Size Curves: System calculates the size curves based on sales information defined for a specific or relative period based on specific filters and these defined size curves get updated periodically based on a defined update cadence.

Note: If you want to learn more on how to enable Size Curves on your account, please get in touch with your Customer Success manager.
