The RDS Reports Date Selector

From iGlom RDS
Jump to: navigation, search

RDS Reports draw from the sales data in its database then formats and summarizes that data in various ways and views. You can restrict the data it uses based on the date of the transaction. Every sales-oriented report in the RDS system includes a special Date Selector at the top of the page. The same Date Selector carries across to all the reports. For example if you set a specific date range on the Sales Report page then move to the Orders Report page, the date range you selected on the Sales Report page will be used on the Orders Report page as well.

The Preset Date Ranges

There are four preset Date Selections that use today as a reference point. Those four selections are:

  • Today - Include transactions from today
  • Past 2 Days - Include transactions from today and all day yesterday
  • Past 7 Days - Include transactions from today and the previous 6 days
  • Past 30 Days - Include transactions from today and the previous 29 days

All Dates

The All Dates selection uses transactions from the very earliest recorded transaction up through the most recent. Note that if you have a very high sales volume or a lot of transactions recorded, generating a report using All Dates may take some time to process and produce a very large report.

Custom Dates

The Custom Dates selection allows you to enter a starting and ending date. Transactions that occurred on or after the Start date up through and including the End Date will be included in the report.

The Date Selector Bar

The Date Selector Bar appears on all reports pages that can be filtered based on the date of the transaction. The following are examples of the Date Selector Bar for each of the six selections available:


Report Date Selection

Each of the reports available to a Merchant may be limited to data within a specific date range. Using a simple but powerful date selector, the Merchant can rapidly narrow the reported dates to one of the following:
