Using the TimeForge Sales feature, employee schedules can be compared to Manager Projections, Actual Numbers, and System Generated Forecasts. After creating the necessary Sales Category, numeric values should be entered into the Manager Projections area. Once the week (or day) is over, Actual Values from the Point of Sale system, Cash Register, Property Management System, or other revenue control system can be entered into the “Actual Values” area of the software.
You can project sales quickly and easily, just follow these steps.
Enter Manager Projections
Projecting sales is Extremely Easy
As previously mentioned, Manager Projections can be entered by the hour, or by the quarter-hour. The hours shown will be dependent on any open / close hours that are currently defined for your location.\
Once you’ve finished forecasting your sales, click “Finished.”
Configure your “Sales Options.”
A number of settings are available in the Sales Options, including:
- Allowing Supervisors to access the Sales Module
- Viewing Manager Projections and System Forecasts on the labor schedule
- Enforcing the labor ratios, which will disable the posting of schedules unless they meet the necessary labor ratio percentages
Don’t forget to click “Save” if you make any changes to the “Sales Options” page.
