Better Reports - Locations

3. Date Range selection and Breadcrumbs

Better Reports Locations - Breadcrumbs and Date Range selection

At the top of the report we have the Breadcrumbs (on the left) and the Date Range selection (on the right).

The Breadcrumbs let you know where you are. The initial location is “World” and you can work your way down to city level. Each element is a link to that location.

The Date Range selection has 4 types of range options predefined:

  • 7 Days (default) – Last 7 days including present day
  • This Month – From the beginning of current month up to present day
  • Last month – Previous month in its entirety
  • Year – Current year up to present day
  • Custom – This will prompt two date boxes for custom dates

The options for comparisons are as follows:

  • Last Period – Same time range but for the previous period. For example, if 7 Day is selected, it would be the previous 7 days
  • Last Year – Comparing against the same period of time but for the previous year
  • Custom – This will prompt two date boxes for custom dates

We will go into details of the date comparison in section 7. Comparing two date ranges.
