And now the graph shows completely incorrect data for the whole January in “before tax” mode. Everything looks correct in “after tax”.
Second. It looks like Earning Report and Author Dashboard show different amounts on “before tax”. I don’t know why, but most months differs for one or few cents. I create a small spreadsheet to show it.
In the same time, “Envato Elements Earnings Statement” PDF files (that Envato recently starts to generate) have the same values as Earnings Report. I know, it looks like not a big deal. But those amounts I provide to my accountant, and it would be nice if they were the same everywhere. In new reality when Earnings Report stops, the graph and the generated statements will show different amounts.
Interesting thing, that earnings after tax are the same in all 3 datasets.
Oh, and almost forget. Earnings Report updates earlier for 1 day than Author Dashboard.
Thank you for your time. Just wanted to let you know about those thing, before you completely close Earnings Report page.
I will copy paste my post which I had written in other topic:
The problem is that Earnings Report display data which is not available in the Envato Author Dashboard. I read that you want to recreate it on the Dashboard but still I would suggest the following:
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)
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.
Please @Jimmy_J, Can You add “all-time” filter in the “Time Frame” field in the Item Performance / Top Earning Items - Envato Elements because " Past 365 Days " is not enought in my analysis system in a case of replacing " Earnings Report " Page with " Insights Reports " Page . It is really helpful for us
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.
Unfortunately new Earnings Overview has few bugs.
First, “after tax” daily earnings show zero. And I guess it will probably always be zero, because it takes values from graph, and graph “after tax” updates later (it has one day delay in comparison with “before tax”).
For the same reason, “after tax” Total Earnings doesn’t show the actual data as of February 20th (like “before tax”), it shows data for previous day February 19th.
That will be the reason for a lot of misunderstanding among authors.
