In the Activity-Based Scheduling version of the Fourth Scheduling application, a new Department setting called 'Hide Labour Standard Data' has been added. When the setting is applied, labour standard data will not display on the Home and Schedule pages.
For more information on labour standard data, please see WFM UK: Activity-Based Scheduling: Overview
Reason for the Change
The benefit of this setting is to provide enough time for customers to get familiar with all the setups needed for using labour standards. Also, it will be beneficial for those who do not implement the Productivity Labour Standards metrics and just use the Fourth Scheduling solution.
This setting is for all customers already using the setting Activity Based Scheduling Enabled, who are also not using Schedule departments as one.
Release Note Info/Steps
The setting can be applied via Department Settings.
- From the Scheduling Homepage, go to Settings > Departments and select Edit against the required Department

The new weekly Schedule view displays 'postcards' for each day.

Each postcard contains the following information:
- Scheduled Hours – the sum of all shifts for that day
- Total shifts – the number of shifts for that day
- Scheduled employees – the number of employees scheduled to work for that day
- Job Roles – the number of job roles with scheduled shifts for that day
