To better visualise your daily manpower coverage for the correct number of staff allocations, you can enable the day view schedule. With Day View, you can keep up service standards with sufficient role coverage during peak hours and cut down on overspending during non-peak hours.

Navigating to Day View

There are two ways to switch from Week view to Day view.

First method:

In the web app > “Schedule” > Click on any day of the week to go to Day View.

Second method:

Alternatively, you can select the 'Day' button from the drop-down to easily navigate to today's schedule.

When you are in the Day View, you can also navigate other dates using the date picker.

Actual View

You will see the hour-by-hour manpower coverage on your daily schedule

Along the bottom of the schedule, you will see a summary of the number of employees who are booked each hour and an estimate of their hourly cost. To view the breakdown by Role, hover over the Employee count.

Note: The hourly breakdown does not include break and leave hours for the day. These hours will be added to the total hours for the entire week instead.

The bottom bar can be used to optimize your schedules based on sales data and thereby reducing cost. You can read more about it here. Here is a screenshot to show you how it will help you:
