We really believe Smart Scheduling helps Deputy customers make informed business decisions and provides accurate data-driven insights. That's why we are committed to regular improvements and updates in this area.

If you are already using the various features of Smart Scheduling in Deputy and just want a summary of the latest changes and a sneak peek of what's coming soon then be sure to keep an eye on this page.

Coming Soon

Some new features we are currently working on:

  • A simplified view to monitor your key metrics like budget/wages/labor percentage while you are scheduling.

November 2021 Update

We improved Labor Modelling to include Fixed Task Demand Planning.

If you know that your organisation needs a specific and planned task completed regularly and you know how many hours of work this task will require you can now configure your settings in labor modelling to add tasks and plan for this labor demand.

To read more about fixed task demand planning within smart scheduling read Labor Modelling.

September 2021 Update

  • We've made it easier to add new custom metrics

  • You can now easily edit your custom metrics directly from the Business Insights dashboard.

  • The Stats Panel has improved colour indicators, making it easier to read the graphs on the Stats panel.

July 2021 Update

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.
