The Square Dashboard App FAQs

Which devices are compatible with the Square Dashboard app?

The app is currently only available for iPhones, but we’re working to make the app available for iPads and Android devices soon – stay tuned for updates!

Looking at my Sales Comparison, what’s the difference between the 52 weeks and one year comparison charts?

The 52 weeks comparison chart will show you data from the same day of the week last year. The one year comparison chart will show you sales data from the same date last year. 

Looking at my sales from last week/year, I’m down a significant percentage today. What’s the cause of the discrepancy? 

If your sales data looks off today compared to last week or year, it’s likely because today’s sales haven’t finished. Sales data and percentages in the app are in real-time. For example, let’s say it’s 4 PM right now and you’ve had 100 sales so far. By 4 PM a week ago, you had 80 sales, but 120 sales total for the entire day. Currently, the app would show 100 sales today versus 120 for last week, with a +25% week-over-week change. We realise these numbers might be confusing if your sales day hasn’t yet ended  – we’re constantly adding new features to the app, so hold tight for improvements.
