Wondered if the Community like the way Kindle are now reporting sales in reports?

Some of the reporting is a lot better but some not what do you all think?

Thanks

It confused the hell outta me.
At first I thought I'd accidentally logged into my associates account.

I don't like it right now, but I'm sure we'll get used to it.

No I don't like it at all. Confusing and unclear. There was no need to change.

Mine hasn't changed yet, but the screenshot I've seen doesn't show much to be confused about.

The links to different sections are now tabs, and instead of a line graph, it's a bar graph. Plus, they've gotten rid of the Prior 6 Weeks section as has been warned for... two years now?

ETA: Sorry, Donna. Clicked the wrong post to respond to.

I don't like the bar graphs at all, Not so clear. Oh, they have a little animation I see. How pointless.

Lots of the new additions are very good. The historic sales for instance. Don't like the new graph though. The old one was much prettier.

So, is it just a really slow roll-out? I haven't seen any changes yet either.

I love the history option. I love that monthly sales defaults to overall rather than just Amazon.com (U.S.). I love that you can filter by author name.

But yeah, the line graph was so much prettier than the bar graph.

My reaction yesterday: https://kdp.amazon.com/community/thread.jspa?threadID=760578&tstart=15

And, as expected, Book Report is broken now. I still like the ability to see, at a glance, which books sold today, so I hope it's fixed soon.

Nope. Still getting a blank screen at 09:11 EDT. I'll just try later.

Edit: found the instructions on another forum. For anyone else having a problem, here's how to fix it (if the link survives modding):

I still don't have it yet but was reading about it yesterday, my Bookreport is still working, so hopefully, all will be well with both once mine changes. :)
