Discount Report:

By Discount Type / Location

By Discount Type / Location

By Discount Type / Location summarizes discount data by the discount type that was used. This view allows users to compare discount activity by the type of discount side by side, and build reports targeting outlier discounts, such as discounts that are under or over a specified threshold as a percentage of their sales, or per-day usage.

This report starts with a summary of the discount type data, and when drilling down into a specific discount returns a usage summary by location, allowing users to then target which specific locations are potentially causing this discount surface as an outlier. One interesting custom report would be to use the Discount Type filter to specify results based on a single discount, Employee Meal for example, and see what other discounts are being used in conjunction with Employee Meals.
