Accessing Advanced Editor

Last Updated: Dec 04, 2014 03:40PM CST
The Advanced Reporting System allows you to do powerful customizations to your Reports. The reporting here does require knowledge of the Liquid Templating Language but can give you tremendous control over your reports. For an overview of Liquid basics, please visit http://docs.shopify.com/themes/liquid-documentation/basics

Go to Reports Page

1. From the profile drop down select "Admin"

2. Select "Reports" from the left hand navigation

 

Select "Edit"

1. Once you are on the Reports page, locate the report you want to edit and select the "Edit" link. You can only access the Advanced Editor from a report that was previously created. If it is not in the reports list, you will need to use "Create Report" and create a report to be edited.

 

Accessing the Advanced Editor

1. From the Report Editor select "Advanced Editor" to launch Advanced page.

NOTE: If you make a change using the "Advanced Editor" you will be unable to access the basic editor for that report.

 

The Advanced Editor

The Advanced Editor is setup using the Liquid Templating Language ( http://docs.shopify.com/themes/liquid-documentation/basics ) and can do customization beyond what the basic editor can do. This gives you tremendous control over the look and feel of your report. Some things that you might do are introduce constants for averages, add a logo or other design to your report, or create complex operations.
