This is your overview of Demand and Capacity for today and the week ahead for individuals and groups.
1. Choose Your Site
In a multi-site practice, using the drop-down arrow. you can either choose one site to view, or, view all sites together. NB The top line boxes (to the right) show today for all sites.
Use the "Combined Sites" view to view capacity and workload for all sites together.
Clinicians may have sessions at multiple sites and their capacity is therefore split between sites.

This is the current count of new patient requests that are not yet assigned to anyone or any group.
3. Assigned Requests

4. Waiting for the Patient to Respond

5. New Requests Received Today

7. Predicted Demand

8. Estimated Capacity
This is the estimated total capacity for the practice each day. Capacity is broken down for groups and individuals by name in the column below. The aim to make this as close to the Predicted Demand as possible for the day.
These two columns show the number of patient requests currently assigned to each clinician and groups and the number of patients from whom you are waiting for a response.
10. So far today
These daily totals are helpful for ensuring each clinician, or group, is allocated a fair number of patient requests each day.
Both counts reset to zero at midnight.

12. Requests but no capacity
If a name is highlighted in pink it means that person has requests assigned to them at a site, but no capacity allocated to address them. This is only generated in multi-site locations.

Useful to know:
- During the day, the sorter should be looking at the so far today column as that shows how many are assigned to each clinician/group for that day. This is the number that is reflected in the assign screen.The number will be updated if others in the team have assigned tasks to the individual and reduced if they assign to others in the team.
- The Now column highlights where the individual may have requests open from previous days, if a request comes out of waiting it will increase this figure and reduce the waiting number.
- The blue and yellow colours on the dashboard are to help the user see the appropriate figures for each individual and aid clarity.
