    I've not seen the General Report for a while. At least > one month. First, I thought LS team was going to upgrade it but if it takes that long, where's a problem. It used to be the default report. I'll like to have it back. For years, I was able to track my affiliate progress with this chart. The General Report still show in the list of reports:
    General Report :
    View a summary and graph of statistics including impressions, click-throughs, sales, commissions, and top performers.
    Any ideas?

    You know, it wasn't until you posted this that I realized it's been gone for so long. But, I agree, it was a nice report and I'd like to have it back too!

    I asked Sarah about that report since it is still in the report definitions, and she said LS dumped that report.

    I liked using that report as a motivator! Guess we have to look elsewhere. :rolleyes:

    If Linkshare dumped that report it's pretty dumb. They don't even care to ask their affiliates or to inform them. They can't even update the report listing. They have many other reports that don't bring any value. This one was their first one and a real motivator.
    May be they they did not like to see they were going down the hill just by looking at the chart.
    This kind of disrespect for their affiliates is why I switched year after year my links to CJ. I only can see my stats for the last 2 years at CJ but at least it's better than nothing.

    Hi All,

    Jim - I don't believe it was me that you spoke with, as I have not told anyone that we dumped the General Report.

    Indeed, this is the first that I've been made aware that the General Report is no longer an option in reporting controls. I do remember making a modification earlier this year so that the report could be accessed via reporting controls rather than when you clicked on your "Reports" link, and this change was made in an effort to streamline access to reporting data.

    I'm inquiring with our development team to find out if there was an error, or if the change was intentional, and I will report back to you what I find out.

    Thanks,
    Sarah
