  • I think you want to start here: \Mage_Sales_Block_Adminhtml_Report_Filter_Form_Order. In the backend are a lot of events "missing", so I don't think you can avoid rewrites Feb 15, 2015 at 8:11
  • can i do it via any observer ??

  • I don'T think so, but I simple don't know. Search for an event. If you find one, use it. If you don't, rewrite, add your own and then use this Feb 15, 2015 at 10:08

Adding the form filter field can be done easily via observer like this: In your module config.xml




In your Observer:

public function appendCustomSalesReportFilters($_observer)
    $_block = $_observer->getBlock();
    if (!isset($_block)) {
        return $this;
    if ($_block->getType() == 'sales/adminhtml_report_filter_form_order') {
        $_form = $_block->getForm();
        $fieldset = $_form->getElement('base_fieldset');
        $fieldset->addField('some_field', 'text', array(
            'name' => 'some_field',
            'label' => Mage::helper('cms')->__('Some Field'),
            'title' => Mage::helper('cms')->__('Some Field'),

This will add your custom field to the filter form of the Sales Report. Sales Report Filters Block

Further, try to do the same to add the grid column. Afterwards, check if filter works by default, as I think the grid collection collects the grid columns and applies the filters from the form by default. If not, you'll have to rewrite some collection.


About GridControl

Just change customer_id to group_id. Then you have the group_id.

But I think you can't add the customer group name. The problem is, that you need to first join from sales_flat_order_grid to sales_flat_order and then to customer_group. The second join can't be made at the moment. At least I didn't find fast a way. You are welcome to read in https://github.com/magento-hackathon/GridControl/blob/master/src/app/code/community/FireGento/GridControl/Model/Observer.php maybe you find a way.

If not feel free to send a PR to join tables without fields :-)
