Weekly Budget Tool

The Weekly Budget Tool allows you to set your projected sales and labor targets so you can efficiently schedule your staff.

By clicking the highlighted field below, you can enter your projected sales and corresponding labor targets for each day. 


As you start scheduling your staff, the budget tool calculates labor costs. It updates in real time to show you how much of your sales are allotted to labor. 

To help guide you, the labor percentages will appear in either red or green. Red means your labor costs are higher than the labor target goal, green means your labor costs are equal to or below your labor target goal.
