A site’s dashboard is its backoffice, where site owners manage their product catalog, business open hours, and much more.
Third party apps can add visual extensions to a site’s dashboard, including pages and widgets.
Note: Dashboard pages are generally used for global configuration related to the app, while panels in the editor are generally used to configure a specific instance of a widget or page that your app provides to the live site.
Dashboard pages come in 2 types:
- Full-page extensions that can be added to a site's dashboard. The page appears in the dashboard sidebar and behaves just like any other dashboard page. You can add multiple pages and organize them in the dashboard sidebar.
- Additions to the dashboard sidebar that redirect to your platform, also called External dashboard pages.
