The Flash Report shows summary information based on a single day’s performance in one or multiple locations. All information from the Daily Sales Summary flows through this report as well as historical information and Labor numbers. This is a great report to run for a snapshot of the day (previous day) in terms of Sales, Labor, and other daily metrics. Most above-store Managers/Operators will find this report very useful for getting a high-level report of the day in each store. It is important to note that since this is an operations-based report, this is based on the Operational Calendar.

This report can only be run one day at a time and the previous day must be closed out in the POS and transferred its data to R365 in order to see the numbers. For more information on the Advanced Version of this report, review the Advanced Flash Report article here.
