What is a module-based print product?
A module-based print product is often found in newspapers. Each module you offer has a different set of prices and dimensions.
Create module-based print products
Start by creating a product group.
Select Print (module-based) as the product category.
Once the product group is created, create products by clicking the add icon above create product.
You can either create a new product or link to an existing product.
Select create a new product.
When you create a module-based print product, the settings are slightly different.
Enter your product name and upload an image of your product.
In the module settings, pick the amount of columns and rows your module has.
As you enter the information, the visual to the right of the form will illustrate how your product will look.
For instance, if we enter a module product with 7 columns and 8 rows, it will look something like this:
The standard settings are width x height.
It is possible to change dimension formats, module names and directions. If you change these settings, the module names would be changed from width x height to height x width.
Activate spread format to view a price for the spead.
On the upper right corner of the product page, you should see something like this:
Finally add a description then create product.
Almost there! Your product is created, but it is not quite finished!
To change any settings, you can always click the tool wheel icon on your product.
Hover over the product and select view product.
You'll be directed to the module page, where you can edit and insert prices.
Your module page could look something like this:
Edit by clicking below the numbers. You will be taken to another window to edit the dimensions and prices.
Edit a module
We will do a little example here.
When we choose to edit module 11.
Now it is possible to enter the specific dimensions (width x height) for Module 11. It is also possible to enter prices for days. You can choose to leave them blank as well.
For this example, we have excluded prices for Saturday and Sunday.
On the module page, you can also add specific sub-modules, like Module 11A, B and C.
If you check these, they will be added to your module chart.
These letters (A, B, C) usually represent the size of the module.
For example, Module 11 is one whole module.
This means usually:
- 11A is 3/4th of a module.
- 11B is 1/2 module
- 11C is 1/4 module
After you've entered all the information, save changes.
Great work! You've created your first module! It will look something like this:
For visitors on your page, this will be the only module visible.
The modules that are not completed and filled in won't show up.
It will look something like this:
Often, the price of module 11 impacts the price of 12 and 13 and so on.
The price of 12 is often double that of 11. The price of 13 is usually 3 times the price of Module 11.
We'll take this a step further now.
If you are at Module 33, it is 9 times the price of 11, i.e., (3x3)(Price of Module 11)
If you are at Module 78, it's 56 times the price of 11, i.e., (7x8)(Price of Module 11)
Remember, we excluded Saturday and Sunday on this module. These fields won't be available to click until you add a module (including prices) that falls on those days.
Create a new page
Once you've added your modules, you can choose which section of your print these are available in.
As you can see below, the modules are applied to all pages.
If you want to manage the pages, click the pencil icon.
When you manage pages, you can create new pages with new dimensions and prices.
Enter the page name and ADD PAGE.
We created a New Page.
Save changes and you can now change your settings between all pages and the new page.
The New Page will not have the information from the previous pages. That must be added to the new page.
You can always edit the name by clicking the pencil icon.
Duplicate a page
To duplicate a page, click the duplicate icon.
All the information will be duplicated automatically.
You can always duplicate and edit information after to save time!
