Also, would you be so kind to add some filtering possibility for the message that says “With the release of WooCommerce 4.0, these reports are being replaced” on the reports pages? I have a couple of plugins that use these reports, and will keep using them for the time being, because rewriting them for the new analytics is very time consuming.

These custom reports don’t have an Analytics counterpart, therefore that message is both alarming and misleading. Being able to hide it on these custom reports would be handy.
