Follow these steps to generate your first report with Mews Analytics, and to get to grips with the software.

Learn more about Mews Analytics (for example, who can access it and which reports it contains).

💡 Above the filters, click Set filters as default to save your selection for next time. Your default filters will stay unsaved until you remove them as default.

Filter by time

Expand any date filter to change the Filter type, which determines how your time filter works:

  • Advanced filtering is best for complex searches (for example, you can use it to find all your bookings between two specific dates). It gives you flexible filters that you can stack yourself for extra precision.

  • Basic filtering will show you a list of every day from the year to date; check the dates you want to see info for.

  • Relative date lets you filter based off of your current date (for example, you can search for all data from the last 3 months).

  • Relative time lets you filter based off of your current time (for example, you can search for all data from the last 3 hours).

Click Apply filter to refine the results on the page.

When running normal daily or weekly reports, we recommend you use the Relative date or Relative time filters.

You can also use Advanced filtering to specify an interval for each date filter. For example, in Manager Analytics > Bookings, you can apply intervals individually to StartDate and EndDate.

You can,

  • apply a closed interval e.g. "after or on 2020-01-01 and before 2020-02-01", or

  • apply an open interval from left/right, e.g. "before 2020-02-01" or "after or on 2020-01-01".

So, "Reservations overlaps with the given period (e.g. 2020-01-01 to 2020-02-01)", means that the reservation checks in before the period ends and checks out after the period starts. You,

  • set StartDate to "before 2020-02-01"

  • set EndDate to "after or on 2020-01-01"

Refine your results

Use the filter pane on the right to refine the results in your reports. Filters are divided into two sections:

  • Filters on this page only apply to the specific page of the analytics report that you're in (for example, Manager or Financial analytics). They're different on each page and are relevant to the specific reports on that page.

  • Filters on all pages apply to the entirety of the analytics report you're in (for example, every page of Manager analytic). When you change tabs, selections here will still apply.

💰 By default, the Revenue shown across Analytics is a combination of Service, Product, and Additional revenue. If you want to specify which revenue you want to see (for example, if you want to only see Service revenue to measure your ADR), change it in the filters pane.

Tip: Hover over the Filter icon to see exactly which filters are affecting the data you're looking at. Click it to turn those filters grey in the filter pane.

Filter by property

By default, reports will show you a chain-level overview. If you want focused information from a specific property, select it from this dropdown.

A closer look at some details

The details text at the bottom of the report shows you:

  • Last refresh: The last time the report was refreshed.

  • Currency: The currency the report is in. (by default, this will be your property's default currency). If you're in a chain, the currency from your chain which comes first alphabetically will be used by default. You can change the currency in the filters pane.

  • Taxation: The taxation type you're viewing the report in (by default, it'll be shown in net). You can change the taxation type in the filters pane.

What next?

Once the report is generated, you can:

Highlight data

There are a lot of datasets per page in Mews Analytics. If the screen looks a little crowded and you want to focus on one dataset in particular, you can:

  • Click Expand to see any dataset in Focus mode; removing the distractions of the other datasets. You can still use the filters (you can also collapse them).

  • Click the More actions icon (3 dots)> Spotlight to fade out all the other datasets, highlighting the one you wanted to see.

Export data

You can't export an entire sheet from Analytics, only individual datasets. To export a dataset from Analytics:

  1. Hover over it until you see the action icons.

  2. Click the More actions icon (3 dots).

  3. Click Export data.

  4. Choose the file format you want, and click Export.

Note: It's only possible to export summarized data when you export from Mews Analytics (you can't export underlying data).
