Category Level data


The new Price & Promotion report is on a Category level.  You can select multiple categories within your view filter, and export all of these categories. The Price Trend report reads data from multiple categories at a time,  therefore you don't need to toggle to change the category. 








See competitors within your category by selecting the retailer. This only works if competitors have been configured in the back end, and relate to the brand that you have entered in the search. For example, click on the name of the retailer (Tesco) to open up the Price & Promotions in Tesco page.

The Average price trends by Brands and percentage on promotion by retailers are shows as bar charts.
