Sometimes you may want to collate reports based on categories, this may be as simple as the menu categories we have or something more complex. For example your venue may want to report all Food sales as one total separate to all Beverage sales. This is now possible:


  1. In the Reporting > Categories Reports section you can see a report of the breakdown you have created.

  2. If you want to create new categories for reporting click this button

  3. If you want to search a different date range and show the stats

  4. If you want to send a CSV export of the data to yourself use the export

Assigning Categories to Reporting Categories


  1. Via the Menu > Categories edit the category you want to set up for reporting. Select from the drop down list the specific category you would like to assign.

Assigning a Product to a Specific Reporting Category


If you go into a specific product to edit you have the option to select a reporting category it belongs to. This can be a different reporting category to what the product category says it should be. Example Category Desserts is assigned to a reporting category ‘food’. The product inside Desserts called Tiramisu Martini is in fact a drink, and can be assigned to a reporting category called ‘drinks’ instead.
