Do your clients understand the admin you’ve given them?
You’ve built some pretty cool features into a website, and you’re about to hand it over to your client. But do they know what to do with these features, and how to use them? Do they even know they exist? What good is it if they login and get overwhelmed?
Unless you tell them, they probably don’t know where to go, or what to do, or how to navigate the backend at all. There are options out there to help you clean up the clutter, and I personally use the White Label CMS plugin to help me do that. Not only does this plugin let me select some unnecessary (for the client) menus to hide, but I can quickly create a couple of helpful widgets, like one with quick links to help and our company support contact information.
So before you wrap up your next client site, take a step back and put yourself in a beginner’s shoes to make sure that the experience isn’t too overwhelming, and offers them clear direction of how to operate the site as soon as they log in.
