Viewing a report

Reports are useful tools that allow you to view important information about your business. When you view a report, you can customize the report view to see only the information you need. Additionally, any column within a report can be sorted by alphabetical, chronological, or numerical order depending on the information provided in the column.

NoteIf a Sales report takes 15 seconds or more to generate when you attempt to view it, the report will automatically generate in the system’s background. For more information, see Generated reports.

NoteWhen you view a report, if a copy of that report with the same date range is already saved on the Generated page, then the previously generated report will be displayed. If you are expecting new data to be displayed in the report, click the Refresh button beside the report generation date at the top of the page to update it.
