You can run most Vista reports for any time range you like. While there are some exceptions (usually that a report runs for one or more business days), it can be useful to be able to run a report for long periods, a day, or even for a part of a day.
Some examples of this include the following:
- Run the Performance Report for the day so far (that is, from 6:00 am to the current time) rather than for the whole business day. This compares the concession sales up to the current time with the admits up to the current time, rather than for the full business day.
- Run the Daily Box Office Report for a three-month period to get the top films for your site for that period.
- Run the Cashier Shift Detail Report for a week to see which staff members have been the most active at POS.
None of these reports were specifically designed to be run for these date/time periods, but these periods can provide useful results.
Important! Running reports for exceptionally long periods can cause significant load on the database. Since POS accesses the same database to make sales, this load can affect POS performance.
