What is it for?

  • Say you have products that you see on a seasonal basis? Like for example you only sell scarfs in winter, because the last thing anybody needs is a scarf on a scarf during a heatwave!
  • So, to see how well you did during a certain period you can set a custom date range for that period avoiding the weary and repetitive procedure of selecting a certain date range again and again.

Tips and Tricks

  • Set this for seasonal periods e.g winter season to see how well you did
  • Set it for flash sales/large discounts
