Command your admin dashboard. Manage built-in widgets and dynamically registered widgets. Hide widgets depending upon user capabilities.
After installation access to all dashboard widgets is removed, then you can use the options at Settings > Dashboard Commander to configure the minimum access level for each widget.
Some WordPress core dashboard widgets and other plugin dashboard widgets are restricted to a certain user capability level. Example: You can not make the Recent Comments dashboard widget visible to a Subscriber, Contributor or Author because of this fact. This can not be overridden using Dashboard Commander, but you can override this behavior by hacking the specific widget-setup function in the WordPress core or plugin code.
