Data displayed defaults to showing the trailing 4 week period, this means data is representative of yesterday’s date and the prior 28 days.
All SKUs including inactive and FBM will populate within the table. As a result, there will be situations we're unable to display data, the value of those fields is represented as a dash "-" on the table.
If data is missing for an FBA SKU this usually a result of missing COGS or lack of sales in the time range being viewed.
Reminder: COGS must be set in order to display values for inventory value, estimated profit margin, and ROI.
*Demand projections represent future insights, these values are not responsive to changes made to the date range.
