Your new Sales Dashboard – What it does and how to use it.
What does the dashboard do?
It provides an overview of all your sales & order activity. The data is displayed in interactive charts and graphs. These tools allow you to track sales activity by looking at your busiest and quietest times. You can identify patterns and trends in the data. It’s useful for troubleshooting, resource planning and business forecasting.
Where is it located?
On the first page after you log in, in the left hand corner under the XSellco logo.
What will I see on the new dashboard?
- Sales Overview
- Channel Sales
