How far back does the data go?
Daily data for Sales and KENP Read are available from January 1, 2018 to the present. You can see up to 90 days of data at a time.
How can I filter the data?
You can filter using the options at the top of your screen.
For data on a specific book, use the "Books" filter or click on the book's cover image in the carousel below the graph. By default, the carousel shows your 10 top-earning books. If you have more than 10 books, they're grouped into "other books." Don't see a specific book? You can choose any book you want from the "Books" menu to see its sales and Pages Read.
Can I look at these reports on my phone?
Yes, the new reports work well on phones, tablets, and desktop computers.
How often is the data updated?
The data in the Sales report is updated for eBook when payment for the sale is processed, for paperback when an order ships, and for Expanded Distribution at the end of the month following the month in which the sale occurred. Totals are calculated based on the time zone where orders are recorded (e.g., GMT for Amazon.co.uk). The Pages Read report is updated as pages are read by customers who borrow your book from KU and KOLL.
