Support » Plugin: WooCommerce Admin » What does this plugin do ?!

    What does this plugin do?

    I compare side by side with and without this plugin installed, and it is completely the same?! The “Analytics” section is still there without this plugin and everything looks the same. Am I missing something?

    I did some research later on and in this thread and this thread, it says “WooCommerce Admin featured plugin is now merged and included in WooCommerce core in version 4.0.0.

    I am running WooCommerce 5.X… does it mean everything about WooCommerce Admin plugin is already there?

    If that is the case, I wonder why there is not a single word about this in the plugin description.

    It’s time-wasting to let users compare and find answers.

    Also, there is a message “You have the WooCommerce Admin plugin activated but it is not being used.” What does it mean? How to “use” it? How to remove this message? It is wired and there are no actionable tips.

    Hi, @anthonychan2509!

    I totally get where you’re coming from here. It is quite confusing.

    I am running WooCommerce 5.X… does it mean everything about WooCommerce Admin plugin is already there?

    But yes, since your site is already on WooCommerce 5.x, you already have WooCommerce Admin.

    WooCommerce Admin has been bundled with WooCommerce ever since version 4.0, but the plugin is also available separately so you can update the Admin part of WooCommerce for new reporting features even if you aren’t quite yet ready to upgrade the latest release of WooCommerce.

    Also, there is a message “You have the WooCommerce Admin plugin activated but it is not being used.” What does it mean? How to “use” it? How to remove this message? It is wired and there are no actionable tips.

    This notice was added to let you know that the plugin isn’t being used. When WooCommerce is fully updated and activated, you can safely deactivate the WooCommerce Admin plugin without losing the latest reporting features.

    I hope that helps lessen the confusion, even if by a bit!

    We haven’t heard back from you in a while, so I’m going to mark this as resolved – if you have any further questions, you can start a new thread.
