Installed Extensions component

Once a recognized marketing extension is installed this component consolidates them and provides you with a link to the next step needed to complete the setup of your extension:

  • Activate – If the extension is installed but not activated you will be presented with a link to Activate the extension. Clicking “Activate” will activate the extension.
  • Finish setup – If the extension is both installed and activated but there is a still a setup step remaining (perhaps you need connect to an external service) you will be presented with a link to Finish setup. Clicking “Finish Setup” will direct you to the relevant admin page where you can complete the setup process.

Once setup for an extension is complete the component provides you a with a centralized place to access links relevant to your installed marketing extensions. These links include:

  • Docs – Linking through to the extension documentation (whether WooCommerce Docs or elsewhere).
  • Get Support – Linking through to the most appropriate place to receive support (whether WooCommerce Support or elsewhere).
  • Settings – Linking through to the extensions settings admin page (if available).
  • Dashboard – Linking through to the to extension dashboard admin page (if available).

Recommended Extensions

This component displays a limited set of recommendations for official WooCommerce extensions that can be helpful to marketing your store.
