I can't thank you enough for taking the time to share these examples here. Use cases like these are so valuable for painting a full picture for our developer team, as it's unlikely that every feature will be a one-size-fits-all solution. I'll be sure to log this context this week on your behalf, as you've highlighted some solid opportunities. Thanks again!
Another vote here for removing this feature. It serves no useful purpose but has two disadvantages.
1. It is distracting and the information shown serves no purpose. We (users) go to the screen to dispatch orders, not to see how well our shop is performing compared to last week. The information would be much better if provided on it's own page which I can choose to visit if I wish.
2. The HTML does not appear to contain a space holder for the useless bar. This means that the page loads, we click our order, the bar then appears and moves the orders down the screen resulting in a different order being displayed to that selected.
PLEASE PLEASE remove this bar or give users the option to disable it.
(And I do not want to have to create myself a staff account, disable permissions, log out, log back in using the new account just to turn off an unwanted feature.)
We've gotten used to this big unsightly black bar at the top of the orders page now but we never look at this.
I go to this page to fill orders. I go to the home page to see how we're doing for the month. This is a mom&pop shop, no employees. We do 5 to 15 orders a week, more around the holidays. I KNOW how fast I'm filling orders because I'm the one filling them. If they're not fulfilled I don't need a bad contrast small type ugly black bar to tell me.
This toolbar is irrelevant to our business. Plus, we do custom build items with a waiting list almost a year long. So the statistics are skewed.
I would be glad for it to go away, when I notice it at all is to scowl at it. It takes up room and it is totally unnecessary. It should be something you can add on if you want but not in your face if you don't need it. Not something you can't even opt out of.
Every improvement you make to this page makes it more cluttered and harder to read - the type gets smaller and smaller.
We don't need the black bar at all, that belongs in statistics.
The buttons to select which orders you want to look at is good
For columns, we need to know the first six items: Order, Date, Customer, Total, Payment, and Fullfillment, the number of items and the delivery method are not useful. I have not used them once since they were added. Think how much easier to read this page would be without the black bar and with only the six columns.
I really like the navigation bar on the left, that is supremely useful.
Agree with everyone else, this bar is entirely irrelevant, distracting and affects me almost every time I load the page. It inevitably causes me to click on the wrong order as it shifts everything down as it loads.
- It is a report and belongs in the reporting section.
Please allow us to disable this for the owner account.
A big thank you to everyone who has submitted feedback in this thread!
@StuartWaudby @HoS1 and @Jeff_Doepker, I will relay your messages to our developer team so they can be taken into consideration in future updates to our admin, particularly when it comes to the Orders page and how we display analytics. Thanks again!
Thanks for your question! May I ask which domain provider you are using? And when did you connect your domain to your Shopify store?
If you can tell me more about the edits you're looking to make to your MX record, I'll be happy to help however I can.
That said, since it sounds like this is a time-sensitive matter, you may also like to connect with our support team for immediate assistance. Absolutely up to you! From our Help Center's Contact page, you can log in to your account, enter a topic (such as "domain" or "MX record") into the search field, then select Get support to choose from all of our available contact options, which may include live chat and the chance to schedule a callback.
Have a wonderful day!
As another business that finds the statistics bar useless I'll share why I don't want it there.
We are a mom and pop store. No employees. Only two of us. We do not want to set up one access differently, one of us would still have the ugly, useless bar in our face.
We do 5 to 30 orders a week. We know how long it takes. We do not need a tool to tell us
We do custom orders that take anywhere from a few days to several months to build - we do not fulfill them until they are shipped, it is useful to bring up the list of them by selecting unfulfilled orders. Our waiting list can be a year long. These long fulfillment times skew the statistics so that they are inaccurate even if we did want them.
The bar is ugly, it takes up space, it serves no purpose. I seldom even notice it anymore except to be annoyed at its presence.
The orders page has become far too cluttered as it is, The Items and Delivery Method columns are useless to a small business like ours. Their prescence means the font has to be even smaller than it was.
The combination of the added useless information makes finding what you want harder, it is much more difficult to read.
The side navigation bar, the links to Shippo and Signifyd, the sorting tabs and the first six columns are what I really need and use every day. Everything else is just in the way.
How can this be stated as SOLVED??
The MUCH annoying Statistics bar is still there. It is truly one of the most idiotic and pointless ideas from Shopify yet.
Please remove it or at least make it possible for us (single users with no staff) to remove it.
