How Do I Change the Magento Default Dashboard with an Extension?
Feb 21, 2013 - Posted by Kevin Hsu
I've long been bothered by the default Magento dashboard, but have also had a terribly difficult time trying to code the dashboard myself.
My first thought was to create something that would help me better find customers and track where we would lose a customer along the purchasing process. For example, would the customer leave the shopping cart because the shipping was too high or was my site's checkout process not clear enough. This is essential information for every eCommerce business owner. But, without programming knowledge, it can prove to be difficult to program something like this.
Luckily, I've stumbled upon a fantastic extension. It literally blew me away and best of all it is free.
It has real time analytics and an actionable dashboard!
It also gives you information about visits, orders, revenues, conversion %, average order value, and revenue per visit. One of the most important things is that it looks presentable and clean on your admin dash.
