Envato Elements Team Should Stop Play With Earning Reports!

Yes! Earnings by Items per month is necessary for us.

  1. The problem is that Earnings Report display data which is not available in the Envato Author Dashboard.

To make this data available in the Envato Author Dashboard, we need to have improved Time Frame in the Item Performance>Top Earning Items by adding:

  • the custom period selection (this will increase the analytic value of the dashboard e.g. by possibility to compare item performance in each month, just like in the Earning Reports but way better)
  • deeper history than 365 days (I highly recommend full history since day 1)

I would suggest turning off Earning Reports after adding these improvements because in current form it has some valuable data not available on Dashboard.


  1. If we’re talking about improvements, I insist on adding new column in the Item Performance>Top Earnings. This should be: date of publishing on Elements (when “Envato Elements” Shopfront is selected) and date of publishing on the Market (when “Envato Market” Shopfront is selected). This would increase the analytic value of the Dashboard, by allowing to compare item performance in context of the item age.

Is there any chance someone from the staff involved in the Envato Author Dashboard improvements could see this?

Cheers

I really like the simplicity of the current earnings dashboard :smiley:

With the new more detailed one, I miss the ability to see things just as clearly at a glance. To see even a current month’s income, I have to first filter by the shop (elements) then by month, and only then can I see the same data…

It would be great if you would just merge these two statistics together. At first, you could show the old simple UI but then if people want, they could click somewhere to see more advanced details.

I totally agree with you about the simplicity of the current elements contributor data, really simple, I love it that way, to check numbers in just a few seconds. New dashboard has very useful info and details but a little difficult to see all that quickly.

You should probably tag staff to grab their attention.
They already know about some problems that I mentioned here.

So the panel with the current balance will stay with us! :tada:
But I agree with you that we also definitely need full historical data.

Hi all, I’ve responded in another thread to the same feedback so I’m going to paste it here too for quick reference @GoForMotion @secondfalseiteration @RedOctopus @Sko4 @vintagio @CocoTemplates @devotchkah @Sinlatown

Thank you all for the great feedback, we did a bunch of research prior to making the decision to close off the Earnings Report, and want to give some reassurances that we’re going to make sure that it is as undisruptive as possible, and adding value along the way when migrating features.

First I’ll share another response here that captures some of what I’m about to cover:

One of the features we’re currently developing and getting ready to put out before the cutover date for the reports; is a high-level summary on the Envato Author Dashboard, that allows you to see your month to date earnings clearly. This will be similar to what you have today in the Earnings Report and we understand that this is an important feature that needs to be replicated, as it is many authors’ morning routines to check this data.

Second thing we are looking to do is add a calendar month filter for the Top Earning Items table in the Envato Author Dashboard, to transform it closer to the Earnings By Items model.

We are also investigating the feasibility of all-time and more custom dates for these more granular reports, however, in the spirit of transparency, we have encountered some issues with performance due to the sheer volume of data that is needing to be calculated to make that a reality.

I just wanted to take a moment to reassure you that the teams delivering you the dashboard are working hard to make sure we provide you with the most valuable tool possible and your success is our #1 goal.

Thank you all for your patience and guidance through this process.

That’s great!! How about Earnings by Items per month? I hope this feature make it to the new author dashboard before you shut down the old dashboard.

Great! Thank you for the update! :+1::+1:

Thanks @Jimmy_J

I think there should be month selection as well to compare each month. Just like on the “old” earnings page.

And I still insist on adding custom date range in the item performance.

Thank you! It looks amazing))

If possible, please set the “after tax” as default, so we don’t have to select it every time we enter the page :grin:

And why this panic… people? :slight_smile:

@Jimmy_J → there is one feature… one thing I am dreaming about since I joined Elements.

The possibility of copying "drafts"

Explanation:

When I prepare my next series of projects, usually 5 to 10 projects that belong to the same “family” → in other words, such a series of projects are for example A4 and US Letter posters (10 copies) - most of their propeties are the same (for example, program → photoshop, file → PSD, Dimensions, most tags and so on)

I have to do all of this manually → 10 projects = I have to enter the same data 10 times into 10 drafts manually.

The “draft” copy option would be a godsend. :slight_smile: so then I can just edit few details and submit the item.

I hope that Envato Team will take this into account and maybe one day such an option will appear in our panel.

Peace! :slight_smile: thank You.

Unfortunately, the data on the page: Insights Report lags behind the data on the page: Earnings Report by as much as 2 days (after tax) Is it really not possible to sync?
