The Sales Dashboard, located in Business Reports, includes the Sales Snapshot, Compare Sales and Sales by Category features. The data presented in the Sales Dashboard is updated approximately once per hour.
The Sales Snapshot feature displays up-to-date sales statistics, reporting on order metrics as described in the Business Reports Glossary.
Compare Sales is an interactive feature:
Filter results by using the Date and Fulfillment Channel filters at the top of the page.
Choose to view sales statistics as a graph (the default) or in a table. Use the buttons in the top-right to select your preference.
Select points in time to compare against your Date filter choice by checking the boxes below the graph or table.
For example, if you set the Date filter to Today, the "Compare" choices are to compare today's sales to Yesterday, Same day last week and Same day last year. If you select Year to Date, the Compare choices are This year and Last year.
Note: It is likely that sales from the current fraction of a day will be a fraction of the previous comparable day's sales. As a result, the latest data point on the graph may appear to indicate a drop in sales data. This pattern is more apparent early in the current day and less apparent late in the current day.
