Account Admins can choose to allocate labour sales % on a per schedule basis within the General Forecast Settings:

How the Labour Sales % tab works

At the bottom of the screen within the Schedule tab, you will notice a row of additional tabs including the Labour Sales % tab. Once you click this, you will see a breakdown similar to the one shown in the image above.

Note: You must have data filled into your Weekly Forecast for the Labour Sales % tab to appear.

Sales Forecast: These are the forecasted sales figures as entered in the Forecasts tab either in Settings or Weekly Forecast minus the sales percentage set in the Company Settings

Forecast Labour Sales %: These are the forecast labour sales % figures as entered in the Forecasts tab either in Settings or Weekly Forecast

Allowed Spend: The Allowed Spend is calculated as follows; Sales Forecast X Forecast Labour Sales %. Using the Monday figures from image above as an example; €2000 X 22.0 % = €440 Allowed Spend

Scheduled Costs: The scheduled costs figure is the calculation of the cost of the labour you have scheduled into the schedule above plus the % for Local Taxes as set in the Company Settings. This automatically calculates as you assign your employees shifts on the schedule.

Schedule Labour Sales %: The Schedule Labour Sales % figure is calculated as follows; Scheduled Costs divided by Sales Forecast X 100/1. Using Monday's figures from image above as an example; 421.61/2000 X 100/1 = 21.08%

How the Labour Hours tab works

At the bottom of the screen within the Schedule tab, you will notice a row of additional tabs including the Labour Hours tab. Once you click this, you will see a breakdown similar to the one shown in the image below.

It will show a comparison of the hours you have scheduled in on this schedule in comparison to the hours that were forecasted (within the Forecasts tab). In the example above, the name of the schedule is Front of House.

If you have set your forecast settings to split on a per schedule basis, it will show the hours in relation to the schedule you are viewing. If you have set 'No' to these forecast settings, it will the hours in relation to the location as a whole.

When the figures in the 'Difference' column display in green, it indicates that the scheduled hours are below the forecasted hours. However, when the figures in the 'Difference' column display in red, it indicates that the scheduled hours have exceeded the forecasts hours.

Additionally the Labour Hours Graph can be accessed within this tab - click here to find out how.
