Daily Insights: Wrap-up Friday

  • Updated

Happy Friday! Most of the week has passed, and the weekend is almost here. Are you headed for some big sales number or a bit of downtime? 

Friday is all about letting your team check in on performance measured against the forecast from the start of the week (see the Monday Briefing Daily Insight card). This card takes the guesswork away, feeding in the very latest sales figures and using them to update your end-of-year results, showing you the difference. 

If you're looking at this insight card via Distil (and not via Shopify), then you will see some additional information at the top of the page. For a guide to this information, read our article on Daily Insights. Remember that the information at the top of the page is current now (as you view the page), while the information in the card is current as of the date of the card.




The metrics in this card are designed to help your team quickly understand the week's performance. This includes sales revenue verses this time last year, plus a revisiting of the short and long range forecast made on Monday.
