This article describes how to use the Mobile Manager app. It assumes you have already installed the Mobile Manager Admin Console on a site’s network and defined one or more reports to be used in the app.
Logging In to the Mobile Manager App
Once you have configured a Mobile Manager user, installed the app on a mobile device, and uploaded data to the respective S3 bucket folder, the app is ready to use.
When you run the app for the first time, it will display the End User License Agreement (EULA). Tap I Agree to the Terms and Conditions.
The app will then display the Log In screen. In the Email and Password boxes, enter a valid email address and password.
The app will then prompt you to allow push notifications. Click Allow to enable the Mobile Manager app to send notifications to the device.
The first time you log into the app, it will display a message stating that the default page is currently set to the Home Page, and that you can change this default page setting in the Accounts page. Click OK.
The app will display the Home Page, with a list of button to access its available features.
You can access a menu listing these features at any time by tapping the Menu button .
You can access the following feature pages by tapping each page’s button in the Home Page or in the side menu.
The Key Stats page enables you to review and compare important statistics from separate days. The top page displays various buttons, each representing a key statistic (such as sales, receipts, discounts, and so on). Each button displays the total for the primary day (updated in real time), the total from the secondary day, and the amount and percentage of the difference. Each statistic also includes either an orange or green arrow indicating if the Look At value is higher or lower than the Compared With value.
At the top of the Key Stats page, you can select the two separate days whose statistics you wish to view and compare. In the Look At: list, tap and select an appropriate day (such as "Today"). In the Compared With: list, tap and select a different day (such as, "Yesterday" or "Same Day Last Week"). The app will display a line graph, each line representing data from one of the two days you selected.
If you tap ,

From this screen, you can tap the down arrow to view more detailed data. If a row features a black arrow , you can drill down on that detail by tapping the arrow. Drilling down on a key statistic (such as Sales) can provide several levels of information. To drill up to a higher level of the report, tap . To return to the Key Stats page, tap .
The Reports page features a list of the reports that are defined in the Mobile Manager Admin Console. You can use these reports to review sales information about one or more stores. Each report’s button displays the report’s title, its type, and its grouping setting (if any).
If you tap ,the app displays the stores assigned to you, allowing you to select the stores that you want to include in the reports.

At the top of the report’s page, you can select an appropriate date in the Filter by Date list.
If the report includes an optional parameter, the Optional Parameter list will also appear in the Edit Report screen. If you tap the Optional Parameter list, the app displays a list of the available parameters, allowing you to enable or disable the sets you want to include in the report.
If the report includes data for multiple stores, the app will list those stores below the graph, displayed with their respective totals. If you tap a store’s down arrow , the list will expand to display the store’s detailed transactions.
The Alerts page displays a list of alerts triggered by any enabled push notifications. Select Today to view alerts that have occurred during the current day. Select Old to view alerts that have occurred on previous days. Select All to view all alerts that have occurred. For a detailed description of the app’s available push notifications, please refer to the Push Notification List.
The Labor Forecast page allows you to review and manage labor cost for specific stores. In the Select a Date box, you can select the date whose labor costs you wish to review. In the Store list, you can select the specific store whose labor costs you wish to review. When you select a date and store, the app displays a graph comparing the projected and actual labor costs for the store, divided by each day part.
Below the line graph, the screen displays a list of each hour of the store’s business day. For each day in the list, the app displays the forecast number of staff expected to work during that hour and the actual number of staff that worked during that hour.
If you tap a specific hour, the app displays a screen listing the job codes (staff positions) worked during that hour.
If you then tap a job code in the list, the app displays a list of the staff members who worked in that position during the hour. For each staff member, the app displays the total hours worked and the total labor cost for that shift.
