Disable Dashboard for WooCommerce


If you don’t like or don’t need the features introduced in WooCommerce 4.0, just activate this tiny plugin and forget about them forever. This plugin completely disables:

  • WooCommerce Admin – javascript-driven interface
  • New reports view (Analytics)
  • Notification bar

It may be a good idea for small shops to disable the features that are not being used at all. Remove WooCommerce Admin and feel the speed of a clean WooCommerce. Disable WooCommerce Admin and never wait for a simple screen to load. Simplify your WooCommerce admin panel. Use goo, old, clean, fast WooCommerce!

If you want to completely get rid of this new function and clear your database, don’t forget to remove these tables from your database:

  • wp_wc_admin_notes
  • wp_wc_admin_note_actions
  • wp_wc_category_lookup
  • wp_wc_customer_lookup
  • wp_wc_order_coupon_lookup
  • wp_wc_order_product_lookup
  • wp_wc_order_stats
  • wp_wc_order_tax_lookup


  • This plugin disables the new WooCommerce Admin package in WooCommerce.
  • Disable WooCommerce Analytics and deactivate WC Admin
  • Disable WooCommerce Notification bar and use it


  1. Upload the entire disable-dashboard-for-woocommerce folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. All done! No configuration needed

I hated the bloated WC Analytics Dashboard from the start. My webserver should never be used to crush analytics. This plugin is a life saver. Thanks!

Woo, if you are going to do things like this you must make it an option. The admin speed made my site virtually unusable. Thank you ospiotr.

I normally don't give reviews. But this is a fantastic plugin and information provided allowed me to get all my sites back to the speed the had. That update from woo was the worst. I appreciate you!

Thank you for creating this. Woo 4.0 is overly bloated and they need to fix it ASAP! For now, you're plugin will be used on every site I have Woo installed on.
