Support » Plugin: Ultimate Client Dash » Couple of suggestions

    Hi,
    I tried your plugin and i see a lot of potential in it. At the moment though we cannot use it and therefore we have some suggestions and/or feature requests:
    1. Custom widget on Message and widget options does not support shortcodes. It would be great feature to have. For example: you can create a complex client dashboard uaing Elementor page builder and insert it there using shortcode. Or inserting contact forms etc.
    2. Plugins create thwir own menus on the sidebar but at the moment your plugin does no have an option to hide them. Therefore woukd be nice to have a feature to show or hide (with checkbox) those menus we would like to instead of only UCD assigned options.

    Couple of bugs i found:
    1. I checked Give access to Manage Woocommerce but somehow on our site it does not work, that is Client has no access to Woocommerce
    2. We hide all WP widgets from Widget options but that also did not work.
    3. Activating UCD changes WP backent language to Engliah. It should not do that otherwise non-English clients have no use for it.

    What do you think, can those things be done?

    Best regards,
    J.

    Hey Soldier,

    Sorry for the late reply. We never got an email notification for your post.

    We are rolling out version 1.6 very soon here and we will definitely include these features in the latest version and address the bugs that may not have been updated already in other version.

    Version 1.6 has about 20 new options to choose from and a new UI interface so we would love for you to give it another try and get your feedback. We will update you once version 1.6 rolls out.

    Thank you for your feedback and by all means keep sending them our way! We use this plugin for our clients so we plan to keep updating it and adding new features all the time.

    Best,
    Kevin

    Hi Kevin,

    I tried it out and here are the results:

    1. Shortcodes work but all styling from the Elementor is stripped out. That means no icons and other styling. See this plugn which allows Elementor for backend https://wordpress.org/plugins/dashboard-welcome-for-elementor/

    2. Client still has acces to the areas he/she shoukd not get acess (installed plugins etc) and therefore we need to use this plugin here https://wordpress.org/plugins/user-admin-simplifier/ as you see, it has not been updated for the last 2 years

    3. It would be great if landing page would also have a shortcode option. This way you can also use Elementor based landing page there and this would give site owner more freedom about landing page appearance

    So, these were my other two cents 🙂

    Thanks,
    J.

    Hey J,

    1. I will take a look at the plugin you linked and see if it is something that will be easy to integrate.

    2. The end goal is to have 3rd party plugins dynamically populate and be able to choose which plugins you would like to give your client access too. Once Ultimate Client Dash gets a little more traffic and downloads we will definitely add this feature, but until then it is hard to justify spending a crazy amount of time on a free plugin. Leaving a review and spreading the word will be the best way to get this feature added. However, if you would like for now feel free to send over some 3rd party plugins you typically use on a clients build and I will integrate them into the plugin.

    3. This is a great idea. I thought about adding a shortcode for a contact form, but I like the idea of being able to use a page builder for the landing page way better. This will definitely being in the next update.

    Best,
    Kevin

    Hey J,

    I just got done testing the dashboard welcome elementor plugin and we have eliminated the remove welcome panel function and made it an option to hide it under Widgets now. This will allow the capability of the plugin you suggested and will be in the next update here. In the mean time if you would like to use UCD and the welcome elementor plugin you can comment out line 36 under ultimate-client-dash.php. Note you will have to go to screen options and check welcome again to display your custom elementor welcome widget.

    Hope that helps!

    I want to add suggestions. It would be great if there’s an option to change login URL.
