In 2020, we released an update to our Stats Panel, providing a clearer view of all the information you need to make the best decisions for your business. If you haven’t toggled on the new experience from the Stats button in the Scheduling tab yet, it will now become the default view on July 15th, 2021.

In the new Stats experience you will still be able to:

  • Quickly compare required and scheduled staffing levels to make sure you're covered across the day

  • Get a clear snapshot of your daily budgets as a percentage of your predicted sales to wages

  • Easily stay on top of your weekly budget with our enhanced weekly summary view.

In this article, we will step through the main differences between the old and new experiences.

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