Report filters

Date range filtering

Date filtering allows you to reduce the amount of data you want to view to a specified day or date range.

If you want to select just one day's worth of data you can click the same date twice to select the start and end date as the selected day.


The keyword filter allows you to look for specific alphanumeric information stored in each column and row of the transaction table. This is useful if you are looking for a customer name, telephone number or transaction ID, or amount.

Action buttons

The view button will give you access to a consolidated summary view of all the information the Paytia platform stores on the transaction.
