Reports are a part of Analytics provided by Shopify which allow shop owners to get an accurate view of their businesses through times. Almost all of the reports can be shown in a selected date range, narrow or wide ups to your purposes. Particularly, you can choose a narrow date range to check the situation for a few days or choose a wide range to see the overview picture of the whole year. Be noted that the new date range will be kept as default until you change it. Now, without further ado, here’s how to set a date range for a report on Shopify.
