We've more fully integrated SalesData reporting into CataList! Data providers and subscribers who are logged into CataList can now see summary numbers from SalesData directly on comparable titles on CataList pages.
SalesData display in scroll view
Retail data providers will automatically see their own store's lifetime sales and the All Markets lifetime sales on all comparable titles in scroll view.
Multi-store locations will see their stores aggregated ALL number in this column.
Publisher subscribers to SalesData who have been granted permission from retailers to see sales broken out from the All Markets may also choose to see one retail market at a time in addition to the All Markets.
Click on the Select a Market button to open the selection drop-down menu. Choose one retailer market and click Apply to update the current page with the chosen market.

If you have selected a retailer market but a comparable title is not in your account's watchlist, you will see the All Markets totals only. The retailer market column will display as blank.
If the comparable title is in your watchlist, but the selected retail market did not report any sales for the time period, then the retail market column will display a zero value.
SalesData display on title detail page
Retailers who provide data into SalesData can also see additional summary data points on the title detail page.
In the Comparable Titles table, CataList displays the first 13-weeks total sales for your own store (or your account's ALL for multi-location retailers) as well as the lifetime numbers.
The first 13-weeks sale numbers are calculated from the date of first sale in your store or your account's ALL.
First 13-week sales in the All Market is also reported, and is similarly calculated using your store's date of first sale. If your store did not report any sales for a title, then the All Market's date of first sales is used for the calculation.
Publisher subscribers can see the sum of the first 13-weeks of sales and the lifetime sales for each comparable title.
Optionally one retailer market at a time can also be selected for display.
When a retail market is selected, the first 13-weeks sale numbers are calculated from the date of first sale in your selected market.
First 13-week sales in the All Market is also reported, and is similarly calculated using your market selection's date of first sale. If the retail market did not report any sales for a title, then the All Market's date of first sales is used for the All Market 13-week sales calculation.

The full week-by-week details for comparable titles can still be viewed in CataList's SalesData report.
