It has recently come to our attention that the Inventory History only covers the last 90 days. We frequently use this feature to investigate inventory outages, assess customer buying patterns, and more.
However, the limit of a 90 day window makes this feature frustratingly useless to us. We often order product on a seasonal or quarterly basis, which means by the time the next buying window comes around the inventory history is wiped clean.
I want to know if there is any way to bypass the 90 day window in Shopify's buying history, OR create an equivalent report either in Shopify, in Stocky, or using BetterReports (pinging @KBetterReports :) ). The key for us is that we need to know the quantity sold per order, NOT total sold in a certain time period.
Hope you're having a great day!
You can view only the last 90 days of inventory history for a product or variant. Unfortunately, there is no way to see the records of inventory events for more than 90 days. There is even no API to get the Inventory History of a specific inventory item.
If you have any further questions, please do reach out either here on the forum, or via a private message/email.
Thanks for the explanation about the 90-day limit. How can we best communicate to Shopify that this is a bizarre shortcoming which frustratingly diminishes the power and usefulness of the platform? It should be remedied such that you can specify a date range like elsewhere in the reporting tools, and if it can't, an explanation of what otherwise seems like an arbitrary cutoff seems warranted.
90 Days inventory history is USELESS!!! This is a MAJOR shortcoming of Shopify that we literally love BUT this has to be looked at it. At least we should be able to have a 12 Months history (AT LEAST!) Optimal 36 or 48 Months.
