Automattic just released a major update for WooCommerce. WooCommerce 4.0 features a new, beautiful central dashboard that allows you to track and measure your store performance more efficiently.
Check out the new features:
- WooCommerce Admin
A powerful, customizable analytics dashboard allows you to get a quick overview of important sales data at a glance, or dig into the details for managing your online store more efficiently. It comes with 14 different data points such as total/net sales, average order value, returns, shipping, and downloads. You can also configure reports to your store-specific needs, receive personalized notifications, and go deeper with the metrics that matter most to you.
- New Activity Panel
It comes with time-saving store management tools and notifications. With just one click you can easily access often used management tools such as orders, stock, reviews, and notices. A new inbox system simplifies notifications and provides with an overview of tasks that require your attention.
- Action Scheduler 3.0
Action Scheduler now stores data in custom tables. This results in a significant site performance boost with up to 70% reduction in database sizes – even on shops with a large volume of orders and posts.
To minimize the chance of errors occurring on your live site, you should test it on a staging site first and make backups.
