Neo Forecast

Forecast in statistics

If you want to know more about Neo Forecast and want to have this activated for your organisation please contact sales@quinyx.com. This also applies if you are not using Forecast today and want to know how Neo Forecast can help your managers make better scheduling decisions.

With historical data from your business you are now able to create an automated forecast based on the actual values from last year.

These predictions are then possible to view in the schedule view when statistics is activated for that view

The data can be sent in on lower granularity than 60 minutes (eg 15,30 minutes intervals) in order to give a better understanding of sales patterns and outcomes when looking back in time.

The prediction is possible to edit directly from the statistics table

The editing can be done by interacting with a present value, to either set a set value or choose to increase or decrease with a percentage value.

Forecast and optimal staffing

With optimal staffing rules in place for your forecast you can configure labour demands that are dynamic and uses forecast values to create a staffing guide to use for scheduling. This is possible to view in statistics as well. For hours or periods when there is a demand for shifts you can do this with static rules.

Read more about dynamic and static rules here and more information about optimal headcount in statistics can be found here

Role management

Modules

In this release we are removing the modules from role management. Schedule, People, Forecast and Tags will now be controlled with the existing permissions.

Permissions

The permissions are now sorted alphabetical.

Shift type management

Shift type list

With the release of Neo 0070 we are introducing the shift type list as the second part of shift type management that we are currently developing for Neo.

You'll find the list under the shift type menu in account settings and group settings (only visible in group settings when you are on unit level)

There are two different ways to create shift types in Quinyx:

Shared - Created on account level and visible under account settings and group settings for all units

Local - Created on unit level and only visible under group settings for the group (unit) where they were created

All shared shift types are marked with a blue label

  • The list can be sorted on name or time
  • Under display you can select to show inactive shift types
  • If you have a large amount of shift types they will be split in to multiple pages. Use the arrows to navigate between the pages.
  • You can search the page by using the search field at the top
Note that this is only viewing the list. Add and edit will be implemented in one of the coming releases.
