You can integrate your Nown POS to pull your actual sales data into 7shifts.
Adding the Integration
⚠️ First, you will need to gather your 7shifts API key and Location ID. You can get your API key and information from 7shifts by heading to the 7shifts logo > Company Settings > Developer Tools > API.
From there, you will need to contact Nown support to set up the integration.
Actual Sales & Forecasting
Once your integration has been activated, your real-time sales data will be enabled by default. 7shifts will also use those Actual Sales values to populate Projected Sales, allowing you to create schedules based on those projections. These will become more accurate over time as more data is available.
7shifts will begin pulling in your sales data into the Dashboard, Manager Log Book, Actuals Report, and the Labor Budget Tool.
⚠️ Sales Accuracy
To ensure accurate reporting and matching sales totals, 7shifts and Nown POS must both:
- be in the same timezone
- have work day hours ranging from 5AM—5AM

Now when you go to build schedules for future weeks, 7shifts will automatically look at past historical sales and insert your sales projections for you. This allows for more accurate scheduling if you're wanting to stay on budget and within your labor targets.
The Actual Sales will initially be empty for the current or future days until sales start rolling in. Once the sales numbers have been pulled into 7shifts, they will be shown appropriately under those specific days.
