The Inventory Change Report shows you how inventory has been updated over time for easy high-level audits. You choose the date range, and we will display your starting and ending inventory with a summary of all updates in between. You can click on the Product for history and details.

This report is not recommended to replace an official inventory report, but it can provide some useful information when analyzing trends.

For more information about retrieving your report, click this article on Saved/Scheduled Reporting.

Filters help pinpoint the information you care about most. We've added a few new ones for this report specifically which we think will help immensely!

Bundles filter

By default, the report will show both bundles and their components. By filtering to "show bundles only" or "hide bundles" you can make sure you're seeing what matters most to you.

The filter only operates on the current bundle status. For example, if a variant was a bundle when inventory entries occurred, but is no longer a bundle (or vice versa), this report will not make that distinction.

Change Type filter

Quickly see how many products changed via our main features like Stocktakes, Purchase Orders / Internal Transfers, Assemblies, and Sales.

When you select ‘Sale’ for instance, the results will only show variants with a value in the Sold or Restocked columns, and not factor in any other inventory entries.

If the inventory change was via Bulk Upload, or the Actions>Add/Edit option on the Inventory page, that will fall under "Other."

Multiple types can be selected at one time.


A Bundle indicator icon will display on the generated report as well as the report when it is exported. For example, here's what it will look like when you initially generate the report on Thrive:

And this is what it will look like when that report is exported:
