Elevate GO DLAR reports are equipped with an incredible amount of data on your locations, their operations Month to Date, and beyond. It can be quite overwhelming to look over all the simplified DLAR data provided on Elevate GO. That's how report filters become a lifeline in understanding the sea of information. Let's take a look at how to use them to your benefit!
When opening up a DLAR report, the filters will be at the top, just below the report title. You will discover that a majority of the filters are similar from report to report, with a few variations. Looking at the regular DLAR you will find these key filters.
Take a moment to explore each filter by clicking on it, and viewing all the options given to you. Multiple filters can be selected at once, even from the same category! Remember, filter changes in the report will not take effect until you click UPDATE!
Notice Below, we used the Month, Door Type, Markets, and Regions filters to focus our data to 3 locations rather than all 25 locations on the account. This can be a crucial tool in comparing locations, markets, or store types' numbers to see if there are patterns of profitability or loss.
Don't forget, filters can vary from report to report. For example, Opening Date has an Opening Month Filter, Plans Dashboard as a Year Filter, and Daily Sales Dashboard has a Date Range Filter. Also, some reports may have fewer filters depending on what data points are being conveyed.
