Sales Channel Dimension


Return to Sales Model Overview

The Sales Channel dimension breaks sales figures down by distribution hierarchy into single sales channels. The hierarchy between the root element All Sales Channels and the individual sales channels can be organized in an arbitrary way to match the reporting requirements.

Mandatory elements in this dimension are:



All Sales Channels

Root element summarizing all sales channels showing 100% of the sales-related figures.


The NA (not applicable) element of the dimension to hold data that is not broken down by sales channel. Must be child of All Sales Channels. This is also the default write element of this dimension. 


Grouping of unexpected elements found during data load. Must be child of All Sales Channels. This is the default parent element of this dimension. 

The dimension must have additional base elements to hold data which is broken down by customer.

The customer elements can be configured through their attribute:
