Retail | Loss Report

The Loss Report shows any documented loss and the details of that loss such as when it was processed and who processed it. This report shows only when a loss has been reported in inventory for a given date range.

In order to optimize our reporting, reports over a 2-week period will no longer be shown in our UI. Any reports over a 2-week period will be auto-generated and sent to the email you are logged in with.
  • To access these generated reports in BLAZE, navigate to Data Export > Generated, you will find a list of generated reports you can easily download.

The Loss report can be accessed by navigating to Data Export > Transaction. It will be located in the list of reports.

The following is a list of all the types of data you will get in this report, and what they all mean. There is also an example export of this report attached to this support document.
