Calculate percentages

Calculating percentages is useful when you want to see, for example, the percentage revenue generated from each channel (online, stores, partner, etc.). For example, you can figure out the percentage revenue generated from each channel (online, stores, partners, etc.).

Create a formula called Percent Revenue in the Formula Assistant:

( sum ( revenue ) / group sum ( revenue ) ) \* 100

Now you can search by each channel, using the percent revenue formula that you just created.
