To turn on your Squirrel - Real-time Sales & Forecasting, click 'Settings' and then click 'Activate'. From there, select 'Install Agent' and proceed with the installation.
Once you've activated it, it will take a few hours to start bringing in sales data. Once it's complete, your Schedules page will look like this:
The actual sales row will initially be empty until sales start rolling in. Once the sales numbers have been pulled in to 7shifts, they will be shown appropriately under the specific day. Now when you go to build schedules for future weeks, 7shifts will automatically look at past historical sales and insert sales projections for you.
