The Admin Dashboard is your home page in the Zen Cart admin.
It is structured to give you the maximum amount of information possible about your store one one page.
Each of the boxes on the admin page under the menu is called a widget. Here’s the statistics widget, as an example.
The following widgets are prebuilt on your admin home page:
- Statistics (product and category counts, reviews, etc.)
- Special, Featured and Sale counts
- Order counts by status
- New Customers
- Who’s Online
- Visitor History
- New Orders
- Monthly Sales
If you have specific things you’d like to monitor on your site, you can build your own widget. See building an admin widget for details.
