Schedule vitals

Schedule vitals are the set metrics used to determine the ‘health’ of a schedule for some quick insights
The schedule vitals bar at the bottom of a roster gives an overall summary of roster health. Each active roster vital is analysed based on set thresholds, and presented for review when publishing a roster.

Award compliance

Award compliance thresholds determine the health of the award compliance vital metric.
Set the specific percentage of shifts for both low and critical alerts that would see a roster considered unhealthy, or even critically unhealthy.

Costing

Costing vital thresholds allow you to determine how far over budget would make a roster unhealthy, or even critically unhealthy.

Demand

Set the specific percentage of shifts for both hourly and daily demand that would see a roster considered unhealthy, or even critically unhealthy.
