Print This Page print_button.png



Qu has created several reports to assist you in managing your restaurant, and has organized them into five categories:


This Guide was created by Qu to help you quickly get acquainted with Qu Report. You can access the Qu 3.5 Reporting Documentation if you would like more information on a specific report and the filters that are available.


  • Overview - Reports that summarize all activity for a specified period
  • Sales - Sales related data based on specified metrics
  • Labor - Employee related reports based on time entries, tips, and daily activities
  • Product - Reports on items and modifiers
  • Payments - Sales reports based on different payment metrics

In addition to being organized into categories, each has several filters that allow the presented information to be customized. To view and customize the available filters, click the expand button next to the report’s date. 


Each report includes but is not limited to: 

  • Date Filter - The default date for all reports is the current day
  • Location Filter - The default is for all locations that you have access to (For instance if you had access to three stores, the summary report would show the total gross sales for all three for the specified period)
  • Employee Filter - Each report shows data for all employees, and the user can filter them to display data for a specific employee. However, in most cases, this filter will not be needed.


Depending on the report, it will have additional filters for customizing it. For example, the payment report includes order type, order channel, credit card type, check state, and payment type filters in addition to text filters for check number, reference number, and ticket reference.


These filters also exist in a couple of different formats:

  • Dropdown - Allows you to select an existing option(s) from a dropdown list (the date filter is the most common example of this.



  • Radio - Allows only one selection from a list of existing options.
    • The location filter is a notable example of this, as it reveals additional filter options. If the store list is selected, the interface displays a dropdown prompting for the selection of one or more stores. If the user chooses the reporting group option, the add button must be selected, which presents a checklist to choose one or more options.



  • Checklist - Allows selecting one or more options from a list (the relevant reports display Order Type and Order channel filters in this format).


  • Textbox - Allows the user to search for data based on a specified filter (Search by check number is the most common example of this filter type)


  • Column/Field Selection - Some reports allow the addition or removal of columns/Fields. Simply click into the Fields box to reveal a dropdown of available options.


Additionally, the user can save each report as a custom report (with the filters and customizations that you have selected), scheduled (to be emailed regularly), exported (downloaded or emailed as either an Excel file, CSV, or PDF), and printed.
