Views is a powerful tool that is used to pull data from the database and display them in the frontend. However, it is sometimes hard to pull the appropriate data from the respective entities and present them in the appropriate format. This is particular true when the objective is to generate reports for specific use cases like accounting.

In this session we will showcase our approach on a Drupal Commerce website. We will discuss our implementation of data storage and method of generating complex reports while still using views for displaying and manipulating the data.
