New Reporting


To access new reporting, navigate to the Admin menu and then the Analysis link. Currently, two versions are running in Zahara. You need to be in the newer “V3” part of Zahara to access new reporting. After logging in, head to Purchase Orders from the Documents menu, and then you are in “V3”. If you have the correct permissions, you will see the Admin menu. From here, click Analysis.¬†

You should see this:

Business Unit Selector

Under the word “Dashboard”, you will see a Business Unit selector. Choose the Business Unit(s) you wish to report on. This is shown in the red box below. You can change this and the date range and then click “Update Report”. This will choose the data we are using for the dashboard below and the reports that can be run.¬†

There is a Business Unit filter shown in the blue box below, directly above the dashboard, that can also be selected. This is a filter, whereas the selector above is used to engage the data. There is a subtle difference. 


Dashboard Numbers & What They Mean
