How to create a furniture schedule

This article will show you how easy it is to create a furniture schedule from your digital mood board for furniture specification, procurement, and general information sharing.

Canoa's Canvas is more than just another digital mood board tool. With one click, you can create a furniture schedule from the products on your Canvas, making the furniture design and specification process quick and easy.

Adding a Furniture Schedule to your Canvas:

  1. Open your Canvas mood board.

  2. Select the Add a Schedule icon on the toolbar, and the furniture schedule will appear hovering on your cursor.

  3. Place the Schedule wherever you would like on your Canvas with just a click.

Initially, the Schedule will automatically capture every product that is on your entire Canvas. Toggle between the three icon views at the top of the Schedule - product drawings, product images, and product cards - to check what the Schedule is capturing.

How to Customize your Schedule:

  • Click the Gear icon on the Schedule to edit the Settings of your Schedule.

  • Name your Schedule.

  • Choose the data fields you would like to show on your Canvas.

  • Order the data fields to your liking by clicking the three dashed lines and moving the fields up and down the Settings panel.

  • To save these settings, simply click outside of the side panel.

  • Resize the Schedule as wide or tall or short and narrow as you would like by clicking on the corners or edges of the schedule and drag.

  • You can also resize the width of your data columns inside of the Schedule by zooming in and grabbing the edge of the column and dragging right or left.

  • Sort your columns by ascending or descending order by clicking on the arrows.

The Benefits of Using Schedules:

  • Use the Search Bar within the Schedule to find a product quickly.

  • Use the All Filter button to filter and show only specific categories of product.

    • Filter by Areas, Category, Condition, Lead Time, Manufacturer, Vendor, and Tags.

    • You can also filter by toggling between the three icon views - product drawings, product images, and product cards.

  • Confirm counts by filtering product and checking the Quantity column. This is great for validating space plans.

  • Click the Download icon to have a .CSV file sent to your email. You can take that .CSV file and bring it into Excel, GoogleSheets, Airtable, or any spreadsheet program that you use.
