TIPS & TRICKS
Did you know you can add multiple Dashboard tabs to your ManageByStats? Tabs let you create entire, unique dashboards, which you can populate with specific dashlets, making it easy to quickly switch between multiple at-a-glance views.
If you need to switch between the same metrics for different products, or want to separate date ranges, types of dashlets or other info into discrete views, dashboard tabs are a great way to do it.
For example, here’s a Dashboard with a tab for Restocks and Orders/Units:
In this case the decision was made to create a tab labelled Orders/Units, and on that tab add things like Dashlets for:
- A combo look at Sales for All Products for Today and Yesterday
- A combo dashlet for Sales for the last 15 days and the Prior 15 days
- KPI (Key Performance Indicators)
A tab was then added for Restocks, to which was added a Restock Alert dashlet:
In this way the owner can quickly toggle between Sales info and Restock info, without cluttering a single dashboard.
There are many ways to use the dashboard tabs to organize your critical information.
For more on your Dashboard and all the ways it can be customized, use the Guide or Help options from the Dashboard menu to get walkthroughs, training videos, KB articles and more.
THE WORLD OF AMAZON
As Amazon sellers we’re always looking for new products. The methods by which we find them are widely varied, but research and understanding of customer interests certainly plays a part.
Here’s a slideshow that takes a look at 41 of Amazon’s reigning best-sellers. Our hope is that one or even a few of them will get the wheels turning for you as you look for your next successful product.
Enjoy the show!

If you can make it we’d love to see you.
To see her husband’s reaction, a woman left a note on the bed:
“I’m leaving you. I’m not coming back.”
Hidden under the bed the woman waited for her husband to arrive. He walked into the room, she heard him pick up the note, pause, then write something on the paper. He started singing a happy tune.
As he was leaving the room he called someone on his cell phone:
“I’m going now. Yeah, she’s gone. I’m on my way. I love you so much.”
The woman heard him get in the car outside and leave.
Furious, she crawled from under the bed and grabbed the note, reading what he wrote:
“I can see your feet. I went for bread. Stop being ridiculous and go get ready for dinner.”
