This article covers the graphs available on the Restock Report.
Clicking the graphs shown in the Sales Forecast and Sales History columns on the Restock Report for an MSKU will expand the graph to see more details.
Hovering your cursor over the "i" next to the title of the item displays information about the MSKU being viewed.
- On Hand Quantity
- Estimated Replenishment Quantity
- Lead Time
- Avg Daily Sales
- Estimated Replenishment Cost

The top portion of the graph shows several data points at a glance.
- Current Status - The current Stock Status of the MSKU and the Replenish By date.
- Sales - The number of units sold for the item in the viewed timeframe.
- ROI - The ROI% of the sales for the item in the viewed timeframe.
- Profit - The Net Profit of the sales for the item in the viewed timeframe.
- Profit Margin - The Profit Margin% based on sales for the item in the viewed timeframe.
You can change the type of data shown by changing the Grid Adjustments. These options are located towards the upper right of the graph.
- Outliers - If there is a sudden spike (high or low) in sales for an MSKU, we identify this as an Outlier. You can toggle including data for these instances On or Off.
- Safety Stock - The amount of stock recommended to have on-hand in case you start selling more than usual.
- Report Timeframe - The default view of this graph shows data for the timeframe being viewed on the report. This can be changed to display data for the last 7, 14, 30, 60, 90, 365 days, or All Time by clicking the calendar icon.
- Est Replen Period - This sets the number of days the Est Replen Qty shown for items should cover you. The default setting is 30 days and can be changed to 60 or 90 days by clicking the calendar icon. (As an example, if 30 days is selected, the Est Replen Qty will reflect the number of units needed to avoid stockouts over the next 30 days.)
