New Admin Dashboard is garbage.

The look of the new admin dashboard is far worse than it was. Many of the sections now just show a total when you used to be able to see that total by hour. For example, the Sales Attributed to Marketing just shows the total for the day. It used to show the total as well as the totals by hour on the graph - so you could see what time of day the sales attributed to marketing came in - was it in the morning or afternoon. 

 

That's just one example. Many of the other sections are just as useless now that the charts have all been turned into line graphs that only show totals.  They no longer show the comparison period either. The old graphs that showed by hour and comparison period where FAR better! 

 

The dashboard used to be very helpful.  Now it is almost meaningless.  It's like a team at Shopify asked themselves "how can we make the dashboard less useful."

And to be clear, I'm talking about the Analytics page dashboard.

We are on Shopify plus and must agree that the new dash is terrible and offers fewer features.

 

Why did you change it and why was this change never mentioned prior to when it went live on Thurdday?

My entire office is complaining about it. Came on here to see if there was a way for me to customize the dashboard so everyone would stop emailing me about how much they hate it. Ugh.

Did we ever find out if there is a way to customise our dashboards? I'm really struggling with the new format. I liked to be able to view the days sales and the months. It was so handy.

Agreed! Came here just to see if anyone was talking about this...

 

The new dashboard is truly awful on desktop. It looks like we went back in time. 

 

Maybe Shopify should go back to having internal meetings again?

They have removed so much data from the graph. The actual graph as it stands is useless to me now because I cant see how much revenue per day. I dont need to see traffic comparisons from yesterday I need to see comparisions between traffic and revenue. Its absolutley dog $#!t at the moment. Literally the most backwards move they could have done.
