Canned reports in Satchmo

Issue #1166 new
Chris Moffitt repo owner created an issue

We need to start getting some basic reporting into Satchmo.

Trent has taken a stab at a basic format here - http://github.com/trent/satchmo-reporting-tools/tree/master/reporting_tools/ which I think is a nice place to start. It's not super fancy but the general approach is good to get something in place.

The only concern at this point is the additional dependency on django filter - http://github.com/alex/django-filter

However, django-filter is pretty useful and could probably be incorporated in other ways to allow searching and filtering in the store.

Anyway, I'd like to use this ticket as a placeholder and also discussion point for ideas.

    so nothing here, yet? has there been any development on this? a starting point, even?

    I need to create two specific reports, no need of lots of flexibility, but if there's work on this that I can help on, I'd be pleased

    The only starting point I'm aware of is the github link above.

    I'm willing to help with ideas but I have not done anything yet.

    Tomas,

    I think there is a huge need for this. It's better to start small and grow than to try to figure out the perfect solution. Take a go at putting something together to get the ball rolling. I will help in any way I can.

    The thing is that I don't have a lot of e-commerce (or commerce) experience, so I don't know what is a good use case for this. If I could get a description of what is needed, [more or less] exactly, I could take a go at this.

    I think people are looking for some basics:

    • Top selling products
    • Sales by product
    • Biggest customers
    • Total sales by day/week/month
    • Inventory level by product

    Those are some of the big ones off the top of my head. I'd probably go look at some of the reports from things like Magento, osCommercer, spree, etc and see what they are doing.

    Here is an example from magento - http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/welcome_to_the_magento_user_s_guide/chapter_7
