If you have a website, you are probably familiar with your dashboard. Ya know, the interface you see when you first log into your website backend. Dashboards have so many awesome features and abilities that it can get overwhelming for new website owners. That’s why I’ve started implementing custom dashboards for my web design clients!
The typical WordPress Dashboard looks something like this:
Lots of stuff that you don’t really need and honestly, not very helpful either.
I thought to myself that there had to be a better way to show my clients how to best use their new website dashboard in an efficient way. After some searching, I found that I could make my clients custom dashboards and turn the default WordPress dashboard off! This was a GAME CHANGER! Not only was I able to streamline my clients’ dashboards, but I was also able to make them on-brand. I was able to add quick action buttons for actions that clients will likely be doing the most, embed custom how-to videos in a video library, and even embed a support ticket link for them to submit a request directly to me! Here’s a sneak peek of what that looks like for my latest client, Urban Dog Bar:
I’m so proud of how this looks and the functionality it brings to my clients. With this dashboard, they are able to run their sites more efficiently and independently. I can’t wait to add more features and functionality to these dashboards as needed but for now, let me know what you think! Would you like a custom dashboard? What would you put on that custom dashboard?
As always, thank you for reading my blog, your support means the world to me!
