Create a complete picture of your business situation

The Advanced Reports extension improves functionality of native Magento reports and creates a complete picture of your business situation. Advanced Reports is a perfect solution for all your reporting needs whether you want to display data from various charts, aggregate information by week or anything else.

In the Advanced Reports v.2.2 released today, a bulk of new features has been implemented. For example, now you don’t have to set up date range every time you navigate to next report – just select the required period once and analyse different aspects of your sales.

With the Advanced Reports Magento extension you can get more information from your “Sales Report” as a “customer group” column has been added to this report type. Also, “Sales Report” has its own data cache now.

Advanced Reports and additional Units upgrade

Today we released the new version of the Advanced Reports extension – 2.1.1 – and glad to announce that some minor bugs have been fixed making this module more stable.

In the Sales by Coupon Code and Sales by ZIP Code units, the “Shipping” column has been added. Now you can find out not only the amount of taxes, discounts, and refunded sums, but view the shipping total as well.

New Advanced Report unit released – Sales by Payment Type!

Today we are happy to announce that the number of Advanced Reports Units attachments has been increased with the Sales by Payment Type unit.

The main function of this report type can be easily guessed on the assumption of its name – Sales by Payment Type displays sales data grouped by payment methods. Thus it allows you to analyze how customers prefer to pay for their purchases in your store.

Advanced Reports – extension and unit update!

To make the Advanced Reports extension compatible with recently released Magento v.1.4, we refused the idea of making any modifications in native Magento reports and have left them unaffected in the new version of Advanced Reports – reporting period range is not accessible in native reports anymore.

At the same time, one more advanced report has been implemented during the extension upgrading – the Sales report. This report type is the enhanced version of Magento Sales Report which allows you to display sales data on the chart and set up the pre-defined reporting period range.

Besides the New vs. Returning Customers unit for the Advanced Reports extension has undergone several changes. The unit has become not only absolutely compatible with Magento v.1.4, but it has become more informative – the percentage of new and returning customers is now automatically calculated and displayed as well.
