Forecast your sales

Updated on

The TimeForge Sales feature is a powerful and easy-to-use analytics tool that can help you keep track of manager projections, actual sales numbers, and forecast sales using system generated projections that are based on your sales history. Sales numbers can be referenced and viewed on employee schedules, and analyzed using the Sales Analytics tool - a simple solution to ensure that complex schedule forecasts are kept in check.

Before you can begin to forecast sales, you will first need to set up at least one sales category. After that, you can forecast sales with just a few clicks of the mouse!

Go to the System Forecasts page under the Sales tab

Open the Sales tab and select System Forecasts from the menu.

Select your sales category and date you want to forecast

You can choose any sales category and any date to forecast sales. A Sales Category can include:

  •  Gross Sales
  •  Net Sales
  •  Customer counts, plates, or covers
  •  Inventory Items, such as khaki pants sold, steaks to prepare, lobster sales, or booked hotel rooms
  •  Any other number that makes sense for your business!

Click Show to forecast your sales.

You can create and maintain as many sales categories as you like. There are no limits!

Forecast sales

TimeForge will forecast sales for you based on your previous business. You can see daily totals, daily totals broken down by hour or 15 minute increments, or a weekly forecast.
