Now let’s take a look at what the Intelligence-Sales Reports page looks like:
Upon entering the Intelligence section, you’ll see a number of tabs that can be used to navigate between report types. The first tab, “My Reports”, provides a single view of how your business is doing (Total Order Value, Total Profit and Products Sold) as well as a list of your top-performing variants by default. Using the drop-down menu, you can also select between Assignee, Channel, Customer, Customer Type, Location, Product, Product Brand, Product Type, Shipping Country, Shipping State, and Supplier.
This is also a page where you can pin frequently used reports for more convenient access.
As you navigate into the “Order Reports” tab you will see a short description for each of the reports available for understanding your sales orders.
Select the type of report you want to get started with.
For the purposes of this example let's run a report on the sales of a company over the last 30 days, by location. So first select the “Location” report.
You can now set up the parameters you want the report to work with. On the top menu bar, from the Show me drop-down menu, you can select various metrics you would like to see in the reports (Quantity, COGS, Profit, Tax, etc.). From the Grouped by drop-down menu, you can select Time Grouping (Day, Week, Month, or None) and also select various Properties (Channel, Customer, Variant, Product, etc.). From the For Orders Issued drop-down menu, you can select various date presets. You can also use the Add Filters drop-down menu to narrow down your reports.
Let’s set up the date range first. You can either set a custom date preset or you can select from of the preset range that is provided.
Let’s select the custom preset as our range. Click on apply.
Next, let’s select the filters.
We want to filter the report by Customer, so select the field for Customer.
Next, start typing out and select the customer you would like to filter the report by.
Click Apply Filter.
And there you have it! A report showing you a list of JD Wholesale's sales, aggregated by location and sorted by total sales, for the custom date preset.
From the results above, we can see that the Warehouse 2 location performed significantly better than the other two locations. If you would like to add more metrics to the report, no problem! Simply click on the Show me drop-down menu and select the metrics you wish to display.
If you were looking to exclude certain data from the Report results, you can add an is not filter to the report by selecting any of the available filters, select is not from the middle drop-down menu, add the specific criteria on the right drop-down menu. Click on Apply Filter. Based on the example above, data from the B2B eCommerce channel will be excluded in this report.
Finally, if you want to save this report, click on the green pencil icon next to the default report name, 'Location', and name the report as you wish. Once done, click on Save Report on the top-right hand side of the report.
