Commerce Reports

One of the great selling points of Ubercart for me was the great reporting and CSV exporting. Google Analytics integration in core does not provide the level of reporting business owners need to run their business.

I suggest we begin discussing a module that would import a variety of Views(?) that provide a comparable level of reporting to users. Obviously this would not be part of core since it's not required to run a store.

Possible features:
- Product reports
- Gross Revenues
- Profits
- Number sold
- Sales reports
- Based on date or range of dates
- Birds eye view of customers and sales
- Number of sales per customer

At the very least CSV exporting should be a requirement before implementing a UI.

Any thoughts or ideas?

I came across this post ( http://drupal.org/node/1440682 ) on Drupal.org where somebody also asked for this feature and Ryan Szrama (Commerce Guys) mentioned that it's a good idea and that they will pursue it as soon as possible. So if Ryan said it then it will definitely happen!

I'm also eagerly desperately waiting for this feature!

Yes, there may be many use cases and needs for reporting to satisfy all users but leaving Commerce without any reporting whatsoever is less than desired IMHO.
