An Overview Of The Upgraded Dashboard For Advanced Gift Cards Version 1.34 And Above
Now that you’ve successfully updated your plugin to the most recent version, let’s delve into the exciting new features and improvements. To help you navigate through the discussion more smoothly, we’ve divided it into four sections:
To get started, head to Coupons > Advanced Gift Cards. By default, you will be redirected to the new Advanced Gift Cards dashboard:
At the top of your dashboard, you’ll find four main widgets that provide a comprehensive overview of the gift card claim activities in your store:
Gift Card Activity
Then, right below the main widgets, you’ll find an overview of your gift card activities. This section provides you with essential information, making it effortless to track the number of gift cards sold and claimed, as well as the total revenue generated from both sold and claimed gift cards:
We also added a convenient month-to-date filter right above the widgets. This filter allows you to generate reports based on your preferred time frame:
This feature makes it easier to customize the reports according to your needs, whether you want to:
- analyze the performance of your gift card program for the current month,
- compare it to previous months,
- or delve into specific periods.
Gift Card Products
Now, on the last section of your dashboard, you will see two tables:
In the “Top Gift Card Products” section, you’ll find a curated list of the most popular items that customers have been purchasing or redeeming using gift cards.
It gives you a clear overview of which products are hitting the mark, showing you the number of items sold or bought, along with the revenue generated. This knowledge helps you understand customer preferences and identify the star performers in your gift card lineup.
Meanwhile, the “Recently Created Gift Card Products” section keeps you up to date with the latest additions to your gift card inventory. It gives you insights into newly created gift card items, including the number of items sold and the revenue they’ve generated.
Similarly, this information allows you to gauge the early success of these new products and make any necessary adjustments or promotions.
Manage Gift Cards
Finally, we will also cover the “Manage Gift Cards” tab. Although this isn’t a part of the dashboard, understanding how this page works can help you take advantage of the features.
To access this tab, click on “Manage Gift Cards” right beside “Dashboard”:
On this page, you’ll find a convenient and concise table that provides a summary of your gift card items. This table offers several options to manage your gift cards effectively. You can easily:
- edit the values and settings of each gift card,
- resend them if needed,
- or delete them if no longer required.
Now, to make edits to a specific gift card, simply click on the pencil icon associated with that card:
This action will open a configuration tab where you can customize various aspects of the gift card. The configuration tab allows you to:
- adjust the created and expiry dates of the card,
- change the value assigned to it,
- update the status of the card,
- modify the code if necessary,
- and even apply a recipient email if you wish to send the gift card directly to someone.
By providing these editing capabilities, we aim to give you the flexibility and convenience to manage your gift cards effortlessly. So go ahead, explore the options, and make the necessary changes to create the ideal gift card experience for your valued customers!
