Easy Insight and Katana Documentation


Once you have an Easy Insight account, you can create a connection to Katana through the Connections page. Click on the Katana connection. Click on Authorize Access and Easy Insight will redirect you to Katana to grant access to your data. Upon granting access, you'll be returned to Easy Insight and it'll start pulling your data over. Once data is pulled over, you'll be redirected to a prebuilt dashboard to help you get started.

Easy Insight pulls over data from the following sections of Katana:

  • Batch Stocks
  • Customers
  • Inventory
  • Locations
  • Manufacturing Orders, Operations, Operators, and Recipes
  • Products
  • Purchase Orders and Lines
  • Recipes
  • Sales Orders and Lines
  • Stock Adjustments
  • Stock Transfers
  • Suppliers
  • Variants

Custom Reports

When you click on Choose Field in the report editor, you'll see the various fields available to you from your Katanas data.

You can add these different fields to build a report. For example, changing the report type to Column, then adding Source as the X Axis and Line Total in Base Currency as the measure, gives a column chart of order subtotal by order source.

For more information on building reports, please see Creating Reports.

More Features

Want to receive a list of open manufacturing orders across your team every Monday? You can set up reports and dashboards as emails on a schedule. For more information on scheduling, see Scheduling Reports as Emails.

You can also combine your Katana data with other connections, building reports and dashboards that combine your inventory and manufacturing data with your support, CRM, or financial services. To learn how to combine data sources, see Combining Data Sources.

Make sure your users or clients can only see the information you want them to see, without creating numerous copies of reports. Learn how to set up data level security at https://www.easy-insight.com/docs/account/data-level-security.html.


How often does the connection pull over data?

Your connection is refreshed on a nightly basis. You can control when the refresh happens through the Scheduling page. If your account is on the Professional tier or higher, you can set up near real time reports at a 5 minute interval.
