TimeForge gives you the flexibility to create an employee schedule several different ways. Part of this flexibility is the ability to create a schedule while using sales forecasts and projections. Depending on the specific needs of your business, you can compare your schedule to any key performance indicator (KPI) that you have set up.
After Manager Projections have been input into the TimeForge “Sales Module,” the Manager Projections can be displayed on the labor schedules, providing instant feedback on how each day of the schedule will compare to the managers projections. System Generated Forecasts can also be displayed on the employee schedule.
Creating a schedule and comparing it to projected sales is easy, and here are the steps you take to do it.
Daily view with sales forecasts.
Weekly view with sales forecasts
The Weekly View of the labor schedule will display critical statistics about the schedule, including the Variable Hours (hours scheduled for regular employees), Non-Variable Hours (hours scheduled for managers or supervisors), paid and unpaid breaks, as well as Manager Projections.
If the ratio is shown in green, then the ratio is beneath the desired ratio.
If the ratio is shown in red, then the ratio is too high.
Note: If enforcement of the ratios is enabled in the “Sales Options,” managers and supervisors will be unable to post the schedule unless the ratio is beneath the desired ratio.
