This year versus last year reports.

When comparing sales over any given period this year versus last year, the analytics app doesn't allow me to choose the exact comparative days but only the same DATES the previous year. But this year,  for example, to be able to compare August 1st to August 7th 2016, i need to choose August 3rd to August 9th 2015 as these are the same comparative DAYS. I would have thought this is common report for retailers but there doesn't seem to be an easy app based report to achieve this . Thank you.

Hi James,

After you select year over year (Which is one of my favorite features as you used to have to do this manually. Smiley Happy ) then just change the date range of your second range by selecting the box for each and either typing over the date (do the beginning date first) or by using the calendar picker.
