Dashboard and Dashlets

The new Dashboard provides an overview of the store’s various reports and key performance indicators (KPI). A new side navigation menu has been introduced for quick and easy navigation through the admin panel. Following lists down the key features of the upgraded dashboard and how to easily configure the reports to best suit your purpose.

Updated Dashboard UI

To access the updated Dashboard, select Switch to New Dashboard option on the top right, under the User Name menu.

The Performance report and the related data is a new implementation – WebCommander previously did not store information such as Most Searched Keywords, Most Visited Products, Session by Country/Device etc. Therefore, the dashlets will be generated with the site data after the recent update.
