Frequently Asked Questions 

Q: Why is there a difference in quantity (when Net Sales or Gross Sales is selected) between the Sale Department Breakdown / Daypart Breakdown chart and the Item Breakdown chart? 

A: While the Sale Department Breakdown chart looks at a “Sales” data set, the Item Breakdown chart looks at a “PMix” dataset. The quantity on the Item Breakdown chart should closely match the value displayed when running a PMix report. Note, however, the Item Breakdown chart will account for $0 items.
