WooCommerce Admin v0.24.0

We are happy to announce the availability of a new build of the WooCommerce Admin feature plugin! If this is the first time you have heard about WooCommerce Admin, it is a new JavaScript-driven interface for managing your WooCommerce stores that is focusing on creating new and improved reports, and a dashboard to monitor all the important key metrics of your site.

You can download version v0.24.0 in the plugin repository or via GitHub right here. If you do test out the plugin, and have some feedback – please do open an issue in the GitHub repository, or reach out to us in the #core channel on WooCommerce slack.

The bulk of this release is dedicated to bug fixing and polishing of WooCommerce Admin and the Onboarding Wizard. As noted in the last release notes post, we have been starting to work on some new documentation for the Dashboard and Analytics tools. You can view those here.

Thank You, and What’s Next?

First a big THANK YOU to everyone that has downloaded a release to test, and also to those of you who have reported bugs. Your input is extremely valuable to us, so please keep testing and let us know if we can help!

The focus of the next release will be in a handful of areas:

  • Documentation – Continued work on Documentation.
  • ActionScheduler – We are also looking to bundle the new 3.0 version of ActionScheduler into the plugin to take advantage of the new custom queue tables it provides.

The next release is scheduled to be the week of January 20th.

  1. What’s the point of this when it doesn’t handle your own multi currency plugin?

    1. The new reports in the feature plugin, much like any core Woo feature, are designed in such a way that it will satisfy many, but not all use-cases of stores. We have built in hooks and filters so the new reports can be extended in the same manner as the current legacy reports are extended to include multi-currency support.

      1. Given that you sell the multi currency plugin I would’ve expected that making it compatible would be a priority.

        As it stands the results displayed are simply wrong, with all sales expressed in the base currency.

        1. Just to confirm, you are speaking to https://woocommerce.com/products/multi-currency/ ? If so, while that extension is sold in the WooCommerce Marketplace, it is owned and maintained by one of our Marketplace Partner developers. We have spoken with them about adding support for the new analytics system and I’ll reach back out to see if they have any news to share on that front.

    Great to see all the progress. I am still hesitant using in on a production site (though I know that many others do). Any ETA or plan when WooCommerce will ship with WooCommerce Admin by default?

    Having said that, what’s the best place to ask a feature question? Namely, I have a shop where we have many bigger restaurant resale costumers (all these orders are given via Phone or Mail and then input manually by shopmanagers) vs. “normal” customers that order online. Current report does not let me differentiate between those two, so we cannot answer question between how these two perform. Does WC Admin let me separated manually added orders from orders done via checkout?

    1. @gerdneumanngerd let me know if you have specific issues that are preventing you from trying the plugin in production, I’d be happy to discuss those and see if I can provide solutions.

      Any ETA or plan when WooCommerce will ship with WooCommerce Admin by default?

      We are planning on merging this with core WooCommerce sometime in Q2 of this year.

      Having said that, what’s the best place to ask a feature question?

      Currently there is not a filter or attribute that is returned on the Orders report that displays the “source” of the order – or in this case if an order was manually created in wp-admin vs one place via a standard checkout. I suppose you could possibly get creative with order statuses, so maybe have a completed order status that is special for your phone orders. Then that would appear in the reports, and you could filter/segment based upon that.

      Longer-term having support for a referral filter in the reports sounds like an excellent feature idea.
