Purchase Detail (Legacy)

Modified on Tue, Feb 13 at 3:36 PM

Report Title: Purchase Detail

Category: General

Available to: All users

Pricing Package: Basic


The Purchase Detail report is essentially a data dump of all purchasing data including items, GL accounts, purchase quantities, and prices all broken out by invoice.

Purchase Detail can answer most questions a user might have about their spend including:

  • What is my total spend month week over week?
  • What is my spend by GL Account for a given time period?
  • What is my spend by Vendor?
  • How many invoices do I get per period?
  • etc.

Best practices for this report include filtering and pivot tables in Excel / Google Sheets.
