The current-month and last-month report are fine. Each one starts with the 1st day of the respective month.

But the Past 3 Months and Past 6 Months reports don't do that. They change to a rolling 3-month or rolling 6-month timeframe. This makes it impossible to use the past 3/6 months reports for any sort of month-to-month sales comparison.

And it's inconsistent with how the first two tabs behave. Make them all rolling, or make them all begin from the 1st day of the month so they're consistent.

Katie I did some more digging, and I think this report might be ok.

When I first looked at it, the data appeared to be a rolling 3 month window. Because I thought the display was formatting the month labels as "Month-Day".

After studying the code, it's actually formatting "Month-Year" which is correct.

So when I ran the report, it looked like it was rolling back based on the display "July 22", "Aug 22" etc.

If I change the date formatting on the chart display, it makes far more sense:
