The past few weeks have seen some pretty dramatic changes in the functionality provided by RDS.

I got permission from the developer to post these screenshots from the RDS Manual (available from the iGlom.com website).

There are six types of reports: Totaled by day, week, month, payer, receiver and product. The daily, weekly and monthly reports detail the sales by day, week or month for each product sold and can optionally include a Units Sold graph for each product. They also include two summary sections,  one that totals all sales by product for the period selected and the other that totals all sales by day, week or month. The payer, receiver and product reports can be filtered by a portion of the name.
