Article summary

Every time you issue Invoices or Credit notes, Elorus automatically records the transaction and displays it in your Sales reports.

Elorus provides three types of sales reports: Sales detail, Sales by client, Sales dashboard.

  • Sales detail offers a comprehensive table detailing all invoices and credit notes issued within a specific period.

  • Sales by client delivers another perspective on the data, aggregating sums by individual customers.

  • Sales dashboard provides you with deeper insights and a more dynamic overview of your sales performance within a specified period.

The FAQs below will enhance your understanding of these options' utility. For setting periods, employing filters, and organizing your data efficiently, consult the relative article.


How can I comprehensively view unpaid invoices for a selected timeframe?

Within the Sales detail report utilize the period filter to refine results within a specific date range (e.g. This quarter). In the example below we have applied the filter Unpaid, thus unpaid invoices and credit notes are displayed.

Sales detail - Unpaid invoices

This example highlights that the most of outstanding amounts pertains to overdue invoices. Utilizing this report for different periods aids in identifying patterns of unpaid invoices.


How do I identify my most significant customers?

There are two ways to figure this out: first, via the Sales by client report, which offers detailed transaction numbers, net and final values, and even contact details. The Sales Dashboard also provides pertinent insights.

The Sales Dashboard report helps you discover insights and unlock the potential of your sales data. Gain a clear view of your sales trends, compare current performance against previous periods, and understand your sales distribution by client and custom categories.

  • Τotal amount (inclusive of taxes, but excluding any withholdings)
  • Amount payable (total amount due, including taxes and withholdings)
  • Percentage of Paid/Unpaid amounts
  • Overdue amount (the unpaid amount past its due date)
