Signed Up vs. Still Needed

Your Scheduler will reveal per Team how many people you have out of how many people you need (according to Registration > Time Slot settings). The box will be black if you have as many as you indicated you need. The box will be read if you have not yet reached the goal.

If you have your Team(s) broken down further into Sub-Groups, you may wish to click on the box to view the breakdown of those committed by Sub-Group. The Sub-Group with the unmet goal will be red.
