This article will show how the metrics and data you set in Business Insights are displayed in the Stats Panel to provide real-time feedback on your business performance when scheduling.

Before we begin, ensure you are logged into Deputy as a Location Manager or System Administrator.

This article will cover:

Stats Panel Overview

On the Schedule page, click on the Stats button, to reveal the Stats Panel.

The Stats Panel graphically displays your Required and Scheduled Staff numbers, Scheduled Hours, Scheduled Wage Cost, Sales data as well as any Custom Metric added through Business Insights.

When you hover your mouse over the graph itself, a pop up shows a summary of the different values of each statistic for that block of 1 hour. You can also configure the blocks to show a 15-minute summary via the Business Insights settings. The key in the pop up indicates the colour and pattern for the corresponding statistic on the graph.

Note: in the example above, Home Deliveries is a custom metric created by the customer.

If you'd like to focus on only specific metrics in the graphs, you can toggle each of them on and off by selecting or deselecting them in the Metrics drop-down menu.

To see a summary of the whole day's statistics, hover your cursor over the cost figure at the top of each day column.

Viewing Statistics

In addition to being able to review your statistics in the Stats panel, you can also find statistics in the following areas.

Employee Costing Panel

Located on the left side of the Schedule, this panel will list the staff assigned to the location you are viewing. Each staff member in the list will have a total of all their hours and a total cost for their schedules shown in the current view.

You can change the order team members display in the list by selecting different filters such as scheduled cost and total hours and the lowest to highest or highest to lowest toggle.

These values update in real-time, so if you are viewing your Monday-Friday schedule on Tuesday, the hours and cost for Monday will come from the team member’s actual Timesheet data, not what was scheduled.

For example, if an employee is scheduled to work 5 days of 8 hours per day, the total will show as 40 hours. If that employee clocks out after 9 hours on Monday, then on Tuesday you will see this total update to 41 hours instead of 40. This will allow you to keep track of your employee’s hours and help avoid overworking employees when adding last-minute schedules to the week.

Your salaried staff won’t show their cost in this panel, as they are costed differently in Deputy. For more information on setting up salary, please see this article on Salary Allocation.

Summary View

On the Schedule, in the top left corner of Stats Panel, the Summary View will show you a breakdown of your selected Schedule view, with information such as:

  • total hours

  • total wage cost

  • total sales

  • wages as a percentage of sales

In this example, the week schedule view has been selected for a particular location.


You can also generate a sales versus hours report in more detail on the Reports page.
