Report Sorting

 

Sort By Date

When selecting a date range for the report, you can choose date created, the start date or the end date.

 

commission-report-date-created

 

Once you’ve made your selection, it’s time to choose a more specific period of time for which to generate a report. You can choose a custom date range, or, one of the options from the drop-down list.

 

commission-report-custom-date

 

Sort By Partner

To generate a report for a specific partner, or selection of partners, click on the partners drop-down menu, as seen below.

 

partner-search

 

Check the box to the right of each partner you wish to include in the report. You can use the search box to quickly find a partner if you have a long list to get through!

When you’re ready, click on the screen, outside the drop-down, to close it. The report will automatically update to reflect your changes.

 

Sort By Commission Owed/Paid

By default, you will see all commissions in the report, based on the filtering you may have done already.

 

commissions-owed-paid

 

Using the drop-down menu, though, you can choose to report only on commissions that are owed to you, or commission payments that you still owe. There’s also an option to view both owed and owing at the same time. If you select all commissions, that will also include commissions that have already been settled.

 

Reset Report

To reset the report and return to the default view, click the Clear button, as shown below.
