WooCommerce Admin v0.8.0 release notes

A new release of the WooCommerce Admin feature plugin is now available for download via GitHub. We are aiming for our next release to be published on the WordPress.org repo, so you will be able to keep up to date with the latest and greatest of WooCommerce Admin there soon!

If you haven’t heard about WooCommerce Admin ( née wc-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.

0.8.0 Highlights

This release was primarily focused on finding and fixing bugs throughout the reports and the dashboard of WooCommerce Admin. But we did manage to sneak in a few enhancements as well.

Comparison Mode in Coupons Report

In v0.7.0 we shipped the ability to do comparisons in the Products Report – and in this release we have added the support to do the same within the Coupons Report. You can now select coupons to compare using the advanced filters within the Coupons report, or leverage a few preset filters which allow you to quickly view Top Coupons by Discounted Orders or Amount Discounted.

Categories Report Completed

The Categories Report was still using some test data, but now the report is fully powered by the new reporting tables. The Categories Report offers the ability to filter by all categories, a single category, category comparison, viewing top categories by items sold, and top categories by net revenue.


Here is a list of the other items that were shipped in this release:

  • Table Component: Reset search on compare
