Ultimate Dashboard is a WordPress plugin that allows you to customize the appearance of your WordPress dashboard. You can use it to implement the white label practice whereby you can remove the WordPress attributes and replace them with your own brand’s attributes. For instance, you can remove the WordPress logo and replace it with your logo. The plugin also allows you to rename the default labels of the menus on the left side inside your WordPress dashboard. Also, you can replace the default icon of each menu if you want it. You can use whether a dashicon or a custom icon via an SVG file.

While the Ultimate Dashboard plugin is great for agencies to white label the dashboard of the clients’ sites, it is also great for all WordPress users who want to make their dashboard looks simpler. The plugin allows you to hide elements like Help tab, Screen Options tab, and so on. The plugin also allows you to hide the admin bar from the frontend when you are on the logged in state.

Want to remove widgets like Quick Draft, Activity, At a Glance, and WordPress Events and News? The Ultimate Dashboard also allows you to do so. You can even create a custom widget if you want it. The ability to create custom dashboard widget is great if you have a multi-user WordPress site.

The best part about Ultimate Dashboard is that you can export the customization you have made into a JSON file and then import it to another website.
