This feature is a part of the Smart Ops Release. Click here to learn more about Smart Ops Release.



The Labor Dashboard provides a deep analysis of Labor trends and performance for one or more of your Restaurant Locations. Looking into how the current year compares to the previous year provides the insights needed to make Labor more efficient for your Organization. 


At a quick glance, Restaurant Managers can even view the Labor trends for the week/day to determine the accuracy of Scheduled and Actual Labor and adjust staffing accordingly. When Smart Labor is enabled, Managers will also be able to compare these trends to forecasted Labor for a more well-rounded view of their Location's Labor.


Contact your CSM or R365 Support to learn how adding Smart Labor can enhance your R365 experience! Click here for a printable guide on the Labor Dashboard.


Note: This upgrade will be rolled out to all R365 databases over the course of Q2 2021. Contact your Customer Success Manager to learn more.
