Introducing White Label Client (and Developer!) Reports
Last year we asked you what you’d like to see from us in terms of new functionality in The Hub and one of the main requests was a full white label reporting system for your clients. So, guess what, we just went and made that for you.
Note: Reports is also both translation and subsite ready. Check it out!
Wanna take a look? Alrighty then:
As you can see, your Hub area now has a nice new tab. From the startup screen, you can choose to create a report, or, if this is your first time, click on ‘Learn more’ to discover some of its new features.
Creating your report is as easy as following our report creation wizard.
Let’s take a brief tour of the Reports section and you can then let us know in the comments area below what else you’d like us to add to this feature.
Although we don’t reckon there’ll be too much, especially given that you can include (or exclude) no end of different information.
And then, you’ll struggle to find a more enjoyable and easy-to-use branding customizer for your reports.
And one thing we haven’t forgotten is that you, as a developer, would like a completely different report from the one your clients see… especially one that doesn’t outline what you need to do, issues or problems. You want to show your clients the roses, and by default the report does just that.
However, should you wish to provide a more detailed report (maybe to get some more work, maybe for yourself, maybe because you believe in radical transparency lol) then we have the option on this page to determine exactly that.
And, with unlimited domains and unlimited reports all as part of your WPMU DEV membership, you can create as many as you want :)
Which you can then, should you wish to (and why wouldn’t you) schedule to send out on either a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis.
And populate with your own custom email content with pre-filled variables and add as many recipients as you like, you’re welcome:
After which a quick summary allows you to check what’s up:
And, naturally, you can then review, download, edit or delete any reports from the new tab in your Hub:
Also, be sure to check out our new Hub Tabs to make optimizing your sites even better.
And we’re not done, here’s what’s coming up next:
- Integration with analytics for visitors, page views and other stats
- Automate requirements for upgrades (currently you need to use Automate to get updates added… we’ll fix that)
- Optional text and image areas to fill blank space so you can promote your services to help improve SEO, speed up performance, etc. (or provide them with hints and tips)
- Better scheduling (think gcal repeat options)
Let us know!
Give your brand new reports functionality a whirl and let us know how you’d like to see it improved :)
And, of course, if you don’t already have a WPMU DEV account, why not grab a 7-day completely free (no lock-in, no risk) trial today and have a crack!
