The Reports section allows generating predefined and custom reports to analyze various aspects of your online business.
Predefined reports include templates for analyzing best-viewed products, best sellers, orders, and other metrics. In Custom reports, you can create, view, and edit your own reports to analyze specific aspects of your store.
The article covers the following topics:
To view a report, pick a template, choose a store view, and specify a date range. Press [Show Report] on the toolbar:
The report will open via the integrated Fast Report Tool. Using its toolbar, you can perform the following actions over the generated report:
Print – send the report to the printer.
Open - select saved report (.fp3 file format).
Save – save the report to CSV, TXT, JPEG, Excel, etc.
Export to PDF – save the report as a PDF document.
Page settings - configure page size, orientations, margins.
Edit page - edit the design of the current report.
Note: when you are editing the generated report, only the look of the current document will be changed.
To change the report template, see the paragraph Edit report.
You can order editing of a report template as a service. Submit your request to firstname.lastname@example.org
You can save parameters of the report (store view, date range) into a file and load it next time when you need a report with the same parameters. To save current configuration, press [Save Settings].
The Custom Reports section allows you to create your own reports using SQL queries. We recommend that you upload, create, edit and delete queries only if you have essential SQL knowledge.
By default, the Custom Report section contains one predefined template - Barcode_Labels. New reports that you create yourself will appear here too.
The Custom Reports toolbar offers the following options:
To define the entities to which the report will be applied (products, customers, or orders), press Related to and select the entity from the drop-down.
To edit the template of the custom report, press Design report. Here you can change the look of the report: insert your company logo and change other objects:
Custom reports can be generated from the shortcuts menu of a specific entity.
For instance, the Barcode_Label report relates to the Product entity. Therefore, to generate barcode labels, go to Catalog > Categories&Products and select a product(s). Open the shortcuts menu with a right-click and under Reports click Barcode Labels:
Create Barcode-Labels for Selected Items
Select the items that you want to generate and print barcode-labels for and use the right-click to call the context menu with the necessary section:
Then, you should select relevant store view from the list, in case you have multiple stores:
Choose the field that will be used to generate barcode labels:
Important! Current parameter should be numerical only! Fields with mixed values will lead to an error:
You can modify the barcode labels view in a file: add new themes or colors, some extra information and logo of the company. In order to perform this, follow such path to open and customize the report file:
Store Manager allows you to work with a third-party program (Report Tool) for report developing and editing. Check User's Manual to learn more about this tool.
In case you want to add some logo or change text format for some columns, you need to modify report template (you do not need to modify SQL files).
To edit one of report templates follow few steps:
Run Report Tool - Go to:
2. Open Report Template (.fr3 file) in the Report Tool - Go to:
Start -> All Programs -> eMagicone -> Store Manager for Magento -> Application Data -> Reports -> English (for default reports like Invoices, etc)
Start -> All Programs -> eMagicone -> Store Manager for Magento -> Application Data -> Reports -> Custom Reports (for Custom reports).

Remember that every report, besides of its template, needs some data to be displayed. To customize data for any report (in case you would like to add some additional information to your report), you have to modify .sql files.
SQL files are stored in Reports\SQL sub-folder. Please note that this requires some SQL skills. Note that modification of a report is not a feature of Store Manager itself and we do not provide support for the third-party application (Report Tool).
Send Report via E-Mail
To send a report via email, you first need to configure email settings in the Store Manager Preferences.
