Road to V2, the New GeoDirectory DashboardProbably the screen you'll look at more often after upgrading...
It’s time for a new GeoDirectory Dashboard
and this new GeoDirectory Dashboard will be integrated into the Core plugin, still completely free of charge.
We already anticipated that the GeoDirectory back end UI will be completely redesigned and it will blend better with the original WP Dashboard design. You can see an example here:
However we didn’t want the site admins to find a settings page when clicking the GeoDirectory main menu.
Instead we wanted a sort of Admin control panel.
A dashboard with the fundamental data needed to actually run the directory.
A couple of weeks ago, I opened a thread asking what kind of data our members would like to see in their new GeoDirectory Dashboard.
Surprisingly not many voiced their opinion, so we had to take all the decisions directly.
I was surprise to see low participation, because I’m 100% positive that this will be the screen most Directory owners will look at 1st thing, when visiting their website dashboard every day.
I know for a fact, because the screen that I look at the most on our website, is the Easy Digital Download report screen. This is basically a dashboard of our own figures, sales and revenues.
After consulting my colleagues, we decided that the fundamental data needed to actually run a directory are things like:
- Pending Listings
- Pending Reviews
- Pending Claims
- N° of Listings
- N° of Paid Listings
- N° of Reviews
- N° of Claims
Statistics will be possible to filter by :
Today, Yesterday, This Week, Last Week, This Month, Last Month, This Year, Last Year, Custom and Total.
You will be able to filter by all CPT or filter by specific CPT.
This are the latest drafts that our new UI guy came up with.
We hope you like it and if you have some feedback, you are still on time… 🙂
