Dashify: An admin theme for the WooCommerce order dashboard

Dashify: An admin theme for the WooCommerce order dashboard

Description

Do you feel the WooCommerce admin dashboard is too complicated or poorly designed?

Thinking about a Shopify store because of the good design and ease of use, but don’t want to pay the high price?

Now, you can get the best of Shopify—in WooCommerce.

Dashify gives you an ecommerce optimized admin panel by restyling and adding features to the WooCommerce order admin dashboard, making it easier and more intuitive to use.

It doesn’t require logging in to a separate dashboard—it just improves the existing WooCommerce order admin!

It’s compatible with WooCommerce Subscriptions, too!

Features

A ⭐ means it’s a new capability that Dashify adds to WooCommerce!

⭐ Order trend graphs

  • ⭐ See trends with a graph of total, refunded, and completed orders above the order table.
  • ⭐ For WooCommerce Subscriptions, see subscription revenue, the number of new subscriptions, and the number of cancelled subscriptions.
  • ⭐ Choose between 1, 7, and 30 day time periods.

Order list improvements

  • Order statuses are big and easy to click.
  • Bulk actions appear only when at least one item is selected.
  • Search and filter is hidden until opened.
  • Filters can be cleared all at once, or one at a time.
  • Table is fully responsive to screen size and works well on mobile devices.

Order view improvements

  • ⭐ Jump to next and previous orders with buttons or keyboard shortcuts (J for previous, K for next order).
  • ⭐ Jump to orders of the same order status! Based on the order status selected in the order list, after clicking into an order, the next and previous buttons will go to the next or previous order of the same status, allowing to you handle orders one at a time.
  • ⭐ Date and time formatted according to region.
  • ⭐ Back button to quickly get back to the order list.
  • Order number, status, and date are moved to the top and made easily visible.
  • Action and update buttons are at the top and grouped together.
  • Order notes becomes a “Timeline” that is bigger and easier to read.
  • Timeline textarea auto expands as you type more.
  • Custom fields styles are greatly improved.
  • A layout similar to Shopify: the items, customer information, and timeline are in the main area, while custom fields and other less important things are moved to the sidebar.

You can turn Dashify on and off quickly through the WordPress screen options, in case you have occasional plugins or workflows not currently supported by Dashify.

Dashify Pro

Dashify Pro extends the free version of Dashify to bring more improvements to the WooCommerce admin dashboard.

Here’s everything Dashify Pro adds:

  • Sort order line items by SKU. When packing orders with many items, this helps you find items faster if they’re also sorted by SKU in your warehouse or fulfillment center.

We’ve only recently launched Dashify Pro. In the near future, Dashify Pro will bring an improved look to all pages of the WooCommerce admin, not just the orders. As of June 2024, this part is still under development, but we’re excited to release it soon.

Screenshots

  • Before: The edit order admin screen is cluttered and confusing. For example, the date is not formatted for your region.
  • After: The edit order admin screen has all important information at the top and is pleasant to look at. Easily navigate to next and previous orders.
  • After: The order notes become a timeline, giving you more space to record events.
  • Before: All features of the order table are visible at once, like filtering by registered customer, even if you don’t need them.
  • After: The order table is simplified, with less commonly used actions hidden yet fast to access. See trends with the charts above the table.
  • After: Searching and filtering is more elegant.
  • Before: The order table isn’t usable on mobile. After: The order table can be scrolled left and right on mobile, so you can see everything.

Great plugin to improve the user experience of the wordpress/woocommerce backend. Coming for a shopify environment this greatly helps our customers service handling orders and customers questions. Also great support by the team to help improve the plugin.

WooCommerce and WordPress could be way better in terms of UXs compared to more recently built e-commerce SaaS such as Shopify. From a backend point of view, WooCommerce lacks intuitive, neat, flexible layouts, and I’m often ashamed of showing the WooCommerce backend to my clients who deal daily with various “easy-to-use” SaaS way more straightforward to use than WooCommerce for a lambda non-technical person. Dashify’s developer is quite aware of this, and his plugin dramatically improved the WooCommerce user experience out-of-the-box when activating the Dashify plugin. I’m looking forward to the Dashify plugin scope getting more extensive in scope. I had the opportunity to report a bug corrected in less than 48 hours, which is impressive. All the best to Dashify!

I’ve been recommending clients use Shopify, because it’s a lot easier to use for beginners, but this totally changes the usability of WooCommerce. This is really excellent.

1.2.6 (2024-06-18)

Improvements

  • Order list: If a search is active, the search and filter area will remain expanded.

Other

  • Starting in WordPress 6.5, plugins can declare other plugins as dependencies. Dashify now requires WooCommerce before it can be installed or activated, since it’s only for WooCommerce.

1.2.5 (2024-06-05)

Improvements

  • Order view: The listing of products and other line items has been made compatible with plugins like RD Order Modifier for WooCommerce which add custom columns. We’ve restored the table header to label these and other columns, and the table is easier to use on mobile and does not overflow.
  • Order view: For users of RD Order Modifier for WooCommerce, that plugin’s fields have a more uniform appearance with the standard price adjustment fields of WooCommerce.

Bug fixes

  • Fix an undefined array key warning when manually adding an order.
  • WooCommerce Subscriptions: Fix broken pagination icons.
  • WooCommerce Subscriptions: Fix the WooCommerce “rate us” message going into the subscription list.
  • WooCommerce Subscriptions: Fix the subscriptions analytics graphs getting more data than is selected by the date range.

1.2.4 (2024-05-08)

New features

  • WooCommerce Subscriptions edit pages get the Dashify theme!

Improvements

  • The appearance of the action buttons in the order edit view has been improved on small screens.
  • The line items in the order edit view are less likely to overflow on small screens.

  • Using WooCommerce Subscriptions? The subscription list is now just as sleek as the order list! (Subscription edit page styling coming soon!)
  • View key analytics about your subscriptions like revenue, sign ups, and cancellations over 1, 7, and 30 day periods.

  • The “what’s new” notice can be permanently hidden for all future versions of Dashify.

Bug fixes

  • PHP warning about a null query parameter on the “add new order” page related to the order pagination buttons which don’t appear on this page.
  • “What’s new” notice possibly not dismissing.

1.2.0 (2024-03-27)

New features

  • Paginate to the next order of the same status! If an order status is selected in the order list and you click into an order, the order status filter is taken into account when using the next and previous order buttons. It will jump to the next or previous order of the same order status, allowing you to, for example, handle “Payment pending” orders one at a time. You can clear this filter at any time from the order view.

Improvements

  • The order date and time is entirely localized, including aspects like whether it should show AM/PM or use a 24-hour clock.

Bug fixes

  • The order time was off by some hours if the WordPress time zone setting was set to anything other than UTC. Now, as long as the viewer of the order date/time is in the same time zone as the WordPress setting, it will show the correct formatted time for their region.
  • K/J shortcuts going past the last/first order.
  • A few JavaScript errors about null elements.

1.1.3 (2024-03-15)

Improvements

  • Order pagination buttons have tooltips and can be activated via keyboard shortcuts (K for next order, J for previous).
  • Order pagination is available for non-HPOS WooCommerce.
  • Order pagination will end at the newest/oldest order instead of paginating to the same one when on the newest/oldest order.
  • Analytics range selection is saved.

Bug fixes

  • Previously, order pagination could land on a trashed/deleted order and would show an error page. Now, it will skip these orders.

1.1.2 (2024-03-06)

Bug fixes

  • If any JS error happened, the page would be blank. Now, it will render the page even if errors are encountered along the way.
  • Missing bulk actions and Empty Trash button in trash view have been restored.
