The WordPress dashboard tends to be cluttered with widgets you and your users might not want. You might also want to set different widgets per role.
Here’s the solution: Dashboard Commander
Command your admin dashboard. Manage built-in widgets (Right Now, Recent Comments, etc.) and dynamically registered widgets (Google Analytics Summary, WP E-Commerce Dashboard, etc.). Hide widgets depending upon user capabilities.
This plugin is based upon Dave Kinkead’s Dashboard Heaven plugin and extends it to support dynamically registered widgets, such as dashboard widgets that are added by a plugin.
After installation access to all dashboard widgets is removed, then you can use the options at Settings > Dashboard Commander to configure the minimum access level for each widget.
