We need to be able to see a list of our products and the numbers sold so that we can see what is selling the best and what is not performing well and figure out how to market it. It is a key piece of creating strategies and deciding new inventory moving forward. There are so many reasons why a shop owner needs this vital data, this is actually the only report I am really interested in. We should not have to use a 3rd party app, this is basic vital info.
As someone commented in the suggestion: The Analytics--> reports --> percentage of inventory sold has incorrect data.
Kritesh here from Better Reports team.
I believe our app Better Reports can help with this request. If you change the product name a few times, we can still report the quantity sold basis the new product name or the original (at the time of sale) product name.
We also can show top-selling products over a custom time period, along with their sold value.
I encourage you to install Better Reports and start your free 14-day trial and I'll be happy to set this up for you.
Let me know how you go, and feel free to reach out if you have any further questions.

I couldn’t agree more with the sentiment of this thread. This is precisely why there is an app marketplace to try and meet these sorts of needs.
While taking nothing away from all the other options put forward, I’d like to also suggest that you try our app By the Numbers. It has a free 14-day trial.
Not only do we surface your Top Selling Products, Total Items Sold, we also show you your Movers and Shakers so you know what products are gaining and losing in momentum as you can see below:

Whyyyyy on earth this isn't part of the BASIC Shopify plan is beyond me. And to make something that is so basic and VITAL to a small business (as knowing the amount of products sold in a time period) NOT be included in basic plan is ridiculous to me!!! I am not downloading a 3rd party for this! I would rather count on my fingers. Ugh.
100% agree with you @DropsofSparkles. Shopify is wonderful, but there are a few basic things that can be really difficult like product analytics and sorting. Right now your best bet is to use a 3rd party app:
No horse in this race, but give conversific a look.
