History tool or the ultimate listmaker

Vacation season is over and your clients are rested and ready with their questions. It’s good to be up to speed and have the answers they need before you take your sunglasses off. Being on top of your game during those lazy summer months was not easy. Luckily, you had the essential ManageWP tool – The List!

While you were enjoying your summer, we logged everything that was happening on your ManageWP account. With the List, you know exactly what you did and when you did it. But, first thing’s first – why do we love lists so much? It’s easy, they are familiar.

A list of possibilities… (pun intended)

Examples of how to use the History tool

General Dashboard History of your actions in ManageWP (for all sites) is two clicks away at all times. It holds the information you need. Click on your login details in the upper right-hand corner and go to the History tab.

All you need to do is ask the right set of questions, and we’ll get you the list. Filter out different actions performed in different sections of ManageWP and the world is your oyster.

I want the list of all websites I ever added to ManageWP? No Problem.. Would you like the list of websites added in the last 7 days as well? Done.

First, adjust the timeframe, and set your filters. The first filter you will set is Website, and then choose the action you want to filter out:

I am not sure which websites I optimized in the last month or so? 

Easy-peasy. Set your filters to WordPress and Optimize, and you’ll get the list you need.

Do you want the list of all the Manual backups you created in the last 30 days?  Check. The list goes on… (see what I did there)

How to get a list of all websites connected to ManageWP?

Our History tool provides endless possibilities and it’s easily the one that’s been underestimated the most. I know most of you use this tool to get the list of websites that are currently connected to  ManageWP. We haven’t made this easy for you have we?

So far what you have been doing is exporting two different lists (and manually cross-referenced them):

  1. The list of all websites you ever added to ManageWP
  2. The list of all websites ever removed from ManageWP

We want to make this easier for you, but you need to help us find the right way. Saving you time and eliminating tedious tasks from your daily workflow is our mission, what we believe in. So far getting the list of all websites you currently have in ManageWP has been all but timesaving and easy.

We believe this can be done in a single click and we prepared a couple of possible solutions for you.

Would you like to have a single button that says “Export all my websites” somewhere in your Overview screen, or, you’d prefer to have this as a separate filter in our History Tool? I know you are aware of the power you have over shaping our Roadmap – don’t be afraid to use it. Let us know what YOU think the best place for The Ultimate List is.

If you read Alice in Wonderland you might remember him as the majestic caterpillar making yourself question who YOU really are. Unlike his literary twin, he has more than enough patience and sometimes even a kind word or two. Special educator and SLP by design, getting down to the cause of the problem is what he does best.

    From a UX perspective, one less button would be a good idea and it seems like this naturally fits under the history filter.

      Thanks Dave, will pass on your thoughts.
