    Default using past perfect or past simple

    Hello
    Could you give me advice. I have already written E-mail, it was my home assignment. But I'm not sure that one of my sentences is right by grammar aspect. Here is it: "According to the graphs, statistic another information that you had sent us, we made a decision about improving business of your company". I have doubt about using past perfect. The previous sentence is: "We just have ended our meeting, where we discussed Caferoma’s problems."
    Thank you for your help.

    Welcome to the forum, Alex.

    The past simple would be the most natural tense in that sentence, in my opinion.
    Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.
