Mobile Manager Dashboard

Admins, Managers, and Assistant Managers will see the Mobile Manager Dashboard as the first screen when they login to the 7shifts mobile app.

The Dashboard includes a graph of your projected and actual sales & labor pulled in from your schedule and POS. This gives you a snapshot of your operating costs and can help you make schedule adjustments to keep labor costs under control.

7punches users, and some POS integrations with Actual Labor, will allow you to see a live look at Employees' punches as they clock in/out.

Time Clocking - See who's working
⚠️ Actual labor numbers will only be available for accounts that use 7punches or have a POS integration with Actual Labor enabled.
⚠️ Managers and Assistant Managers must have enabled the 'Can manage schedules' Manager Permission in order to view the Manager Mobile Dashboard. They also can only see data for the Locations they are assigned to. Read more about Manager Permissions here.

Sales vs Labor Dashboard

On the Manager Dashboard, you will see a graph of your Actual Sales & Actual Labor pulled in from your POS or 7punches.

1. Navigating between days and Locations:

Tap on the '<' and '>' icons to move forward/backward a day, or tap on the 'Calendar' icon to select a specific date.


If you have access to multiple Locations in your account, tap on the Location's name or the location pin icon to toggle between Locations.


2. Hourly snapshot:

Use the 'Hourly' tab to take a deeper look at the hourly performance of your actual sales and actual labor. Tap on any hour within the graph to see data for that specific hour. 


While viewing the 'Hourly' graph, you can see how your sales and labor are trending throughout the day by scrolling left or right.


3. Hourly or Daily totals:

Whether you are viewing the 'Hourly' or 'Daily' tabs, you will be able to see metrics for your restaurant below the graph.


These metrics include:

  • Actual sales vs. Projected sales
  • Progress bar for your actual sales and the percentage that they’re on track for the (daily or hourly) sales projections
  • Actual labor costs vs. Scheduled labor costs
  • Actual Labor %
  • SPLH (Sales Per Labor Hour)
  • Comparisons to the same day, last week
⚠️ Please note, the frequency your sales or labor data will update will depend on your POS integration. However, 7punches users will see their labor data update in real-time.

View Sales Performance 

You can also expand the Sales Performance card to get a snapshot of your daily sales progress based on the last sync time from your POS.

⚠️ This feature is only available on The Works plan and above.

On either the ‘Hourly’ or ‘Daily’ tabs, click “View Sales Performance” to expand the card and gain further insight into your sales targets.


In the daily tab, you will be able to see how you are performing up to the current hour as well as where you are at relative to your daily projections.

The dotted orange line indicates where your sales should be at the current hour based on your original projections that were generated with 7shifts’ forecasting system.


Note: 7shifts’ forecasting system is composed of separate algorithms that takes into account short-term, mid-term, and long-term trends. Through machine learning (AI), your Projected Sales will become smarter over time with more data.

The solid orange line indicates your current sales, based on your last POS sync time. You can easily see the difference between your current sales and your hourly sales projection, as well as the difference between your current sales and your daily sales projection.



The solid grey line indicates your adjusted daily sales projection, based on your current sales performance.




You can use the date selector in the top of your screen to view your performance for a date in the past or view your projected sales performance for a future date.


In the hourly view you will be able to see how you are progressing towards your sales targets for that specific hour.



Time Clocking - See Who's Working

Directly below the Sales vs. Labor dashboard, you will see real-time punches per Location for the day.
Accounts using 7punches will be able to view who is currently punched in, on a break, or late for their shift. Accounts using 7punches will also be able to edit Employee punches directly from the 7shifts mobile app.

⚠️ Accounts using a POS integration for labor data will only be able to view who's currently punched in or late for their shift.

This feature is not supported with Heartland Restaurant, Lightspeed, and Upserve POS at this time. 
⚠️ Managers and Assistant Managers will need to have the 'Can manage time punches' permission enabled to view the Time Clocking portion of the dashboard. Read more about Manager Permissions here.

Under the Who's Working tab  you can view:

1. Employees that are currently punched in:

2. Shift flags:

⚠️ Please note that a shift will be tagged as 'No Scheduled Shift' if the employee had punched in more than 30 minutes before/after their shift was scheduled to start.

If you would like an employee to punch in more than 30 minutes before their scheduled shift, an Admin or Manager should manually clock the Employee in through the Time Clocking section to avoid the 'No Scheduled Shift' flag.

Click here to learn more about setting up your 'Late' tolerance.

3. Reveal more shift details by clicking on an Employee's shift:


4. Tap on 'Time Clocking' under the bottom right menu to manage all Employee punches.
