My VP is totally focused on Revenue reports, his simplest requests can not be fullfilled by such a powerful tool.

We need the abilitly of "compare dates" in the Site Metrics > Purchases > Revenue report to be able to select a preset of "This Month" with a compare date so I can select "same month last year" time period and have the data returned with a % difference between the two.

All he wants is to look at the Revenue over last year for the same time period and see what the % difference is.   While this can be manually pulled and shown to him, what if I am away on vacation? I have no backup so if I am gone, he will not get the information.

I need the option of putting this report into a dashboard with "rolling" date range so he can look at it every day.  This can not even be done in discover because the "compare dates" option we use to have was taken away.    Such a simple request for such a powerful tool and it can not be done.

Might be good to also include a way to compare select DAYS this year to last year, eg Black Friday 2009 to Black Friday 2010.
