The Guests, Checks, Entrée Averages Trend is a weekly view of year-over year sales for immediate trend identification. 

Report Usage 

This report is similar to the year-over year reports on the dashboards; however, this view expands each week period for a more pronounced look. (For example, on a dashboard graph, it may be harder to determine the exact variances because the graph is much smaller.) 

Report Features

  • Filter by location(s) or location group(s).
  • Filter by week.
  • Filter by Guests, Checks, or Entrees.
  • Filter by single or all Dayparts.
  • Filter by single or all Revenue Centers.
  • Select one of the following Graph Types: "Year to Date" or "Year Rolling". Year Rolling takes the current week and runs 52 weeks back in time. The current week will always be the rightmost point.
  • Select one of the following Period Types: Week, Pay Period, or Period.
  • The optional Force Minimum and Maximum Range will set the high and low values on the Y axis. This is useful if you want to further expand the variances. (For example, let's say you average $50K in sales per week pretty consistently. 
  • The default view might give you a fairly straight line. But if you force the minimum and maximum to 40K and 60K, the entire page will be used.)
  • Set an optional Force Scale. This can be used to manually set the increments on the Y axis.
  • Select whether or not to include a trend line.
  • Select the days of the week you would like to be included in the results. All days are selected by default.
  • This report can be viewed/exported in various formats. It can also be directly emailed.
