Happy Saturday from the team at Titan Digital. We’re thrilled to introduce our first Insights release. This is about our simple & free WordPress plugin: “WooCommerce Order Date Filter”. Who is it for? Well, this easy-to-use plugin allows store owners to filter orders based on specific date ranges. It provides greater control and efficiency in managing sales and orders. Below, we’ve put together a step-by-step guide on how to install and use this simple tool, ensuring you can easily manage orders in your WooCommerce store!

Why did we do this? Well, it’s a request that’s come up a number of times on projects – specifically those store-owners dealing with higher order volumes. So instead of keeping it to ourselves, we thought we’d share it with you. No strings, just a download link below.

Setting Up

Once activated, the WooCommerce Order Date Range Filter plugin seamlessly integrates with your WooCommerce Orders panel.

To get started:

  1. Access Orders: Click on ‘WooCommerce’ and then ‘Orders’ in your dashboard.
