Plugin Review – GR Dashboard Notes

Version Tested: V 1.0.1

GR Dashboard notes, whilst not being specifically a BuddyPress plugin could be useful for membership sites with a few admin and moderators. This plugin allows you to add notes to the dashboard that will only be seen by members of specific roles. So for example it could be used to send a general note to all admin, and they’d see it as soon as they visited the dashboard.

After you download and activate the plugin a new page is available in Dashboard>>Settings>>GR Dashboard Notes:

Here you can add up to five notes and specify which member roles they will be applicable to. Saving the note adds it to the dashboard for members whose role has been specified:

Overall this works very well, however I thought the note was a bit basic, it lacks a from: field and the format simply adds the text direct, no marker for urgency or other formatting to make it standout amongst everything else going on in the dashboard. However as an additional communication tool between admin users it could be useful. Overall I give it 7 out of 10, useful but could be better formatted, also the maximum of five notes is a bit limiting.

I've been setting up and managing BuddyPress social networks for a few years. I moved from Ning and other platforms and have come to BuddyPress looking to make sites with similar features to them.
