The Product Mix Trend report compares item sales for a specified time period against eight previous time periods of the same duration. 

Report Usage 

This is a detailed report that displays the performance of each sale item. It compares a total time frame that you select with eight previous periods of time that are equal in duration. Additionally, the first column of the report combines all the time periods and the information provided therein. The report allows you to see which items are selling well (per time frame) versus items that may need to be eliminated.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Q: Why is my Product Mix Comparison not populating? 

A: The number one reason the report is not populating is that the location did not poll on the date(s) for which you are running the report. Another possibility is that your Master Sale Departments are not set up yet.
