Better reporting to get the number of products sold (i.e. the number of breakfasts)
Just an example: Currently it is hard to find out the number of breakfasts sold. This is because the breakfast can be a "Stay product" and a product that gets added via the billing screen.
In order to calculate the total number of breakfasts sold, you need to run two reports:
Product report for all "stay product" breakfasts
Accounting report for all "billing screen" breakfasts (Mode: Grouped; you cannot use the Excel export because it won't show the "Count". You need to get the "Count" number from within Mews)
Another workaround would be to use the Accounting Report and divide the "Amount" through the price for one breakfast. However, this will only work if the price of the breakfast has not changed. If the price of the breakfast has changed, this won't work properly.
In the Accounting Report, the "Count" is not referring to each breakfast sold. For example ten breakfasts on one bill will count as 1.
Solutions I can think of:
- Change how the "Count" in the accounting report is calculated so that it counts every breakfast.
- Add a column in the Accounting Report which additionally shows the actual count for every breakfast.
I think this is a basic functionality and it should not require workarounds.
