The sales report is to report all sales over a selected period.  The report can be exported but this option is only available when the Order/Subtotal is set to the default selection of Date.


Filters

The report has a number of filters as shown in the screen example below:





Multiple selections of the filter will require all filters to be true for a record to show - not just any of the filters.  This means that some multiple filter selections may be contradictory resulting in no records. The filter fields are explained as follows:


Date Type: This selects the date type that will be used in the From and To fields immediately below. The options are as follows:

  • Created. The date the booking was created whether confirmed or not.

  • Confirmed. The date the booking was confirmed from either the status of on request or hold and may be later than the created date.

  • Arrival. The arrival date for room bookings and the start date for extras bookings.

  • Departure. The departure date for room bookings and the end date for extras bookings.

  • Occupied. The date where a room or extras booking spans part or all of the date range. So if some part of the booking range falls within the selected date range it will be included.  Note that departure date is NOT included in the selection for this option. The To date refers to the date of the last night of stay.

    Note that the Occupied date type will affect the amount of the booking displayed in the report.  See explanations of screen fields below for more detail.
