Dashboard tour: Your Flywheel dashboard

This is our beautiful dashboard! You’ll see this when you first log into your Flywheel account.

Below, we’ll walk you through a number of features and how you can best use them in your everyday workflow.

Main dashboard

This is the default page you’ll see when you log into your Flywheel account.

Dashboard Overview

Here you can view your current sites, create new sites, manage and update your information.


All sites

All the sites you own, or that you are collaborating with, will be listed in your dashboard homepage.
You can change the sites display layout by selecting list or grid view to the right of All Owners.

List vs Grid Flywheel Dashboard

Each site will list the name, primary domain assigned, and collaborators.

Flywheel Dash Site with Labels

By clicking a site from your dashboard, you will be directed to the site dashboard.


Create a new site

You can create a new WordPress site from scratch or submit a migration request for an existing site by clicking the green “Create A New Site” button to the right of the greeting.


The manage drop-down can be found in the upper right of your dashboard. This dropdown will give you access to Organizations, Blueprints, Referrals, or White Label.


User Icon

In the top right corner of the dashboard is your User Icon drop-down. From here, you can view your Profile, Billing History, Payment Options, and view Help Docs.



If you manage a large number of sites and don’t want to scroll through the pages, type the site name in the search field in the top left corner.
