WooCommerce Admin Orders List

Customize WooCommerce admin orders list: add custom columns; add multiple status filtering


WooCommerce Admin Orders List module allows you to customize WooCommerce admin order list (i.e. list at “your site admin dashboard > WooCommerce > Orders”). You can:

  • add custom columns,
  • customize statuses menu,
  • change columns order.

Custom Columns

This section lets you add custom columns to WooCommerce orders list.

Custom Columns Usage Example #1

Let’s say, you want to display order’s payment method in custom column, and also make it sortable. To output payment method you can use Booster’s [wcj_order_payment_method] shortcode in “Value” field. To make it sortable, you need to set _payment_method_title in “Key (if sortable)” field.

Custom Columns Usage Example #2

Let’s say, you want to display Booster’s products input fields in orders list, and also make it sortable. If you want to to display each product input field in its own column, you can use [wcj_order_items_meta meta_key="_wcj_product_input_fields_global_1"], [wcj_order_items_meta meta_key="_wcj_product_input_fields_local_1"] etc. shortcodes in “Value” field. Making it sortable is more complicated, as sorting is done by order’s meta fields, but product input fields are stored as order’s item meta and not as order’s meta fields. So you need to create new order item meta fields for that. You can use woocommerce_checkout_order_processed filter, so each time order is created, product input fields are automatically copied to order’s meta. Try adding this to your (child) theme’s functions.php file:

Now you can use _wcj_product_input_fields_global_1 or _wcj_product_input_fields_local_1 in “Key (if sortable)” options.

    I’m trying to get a sortable column with the customers nickname.
    I’ve added a column with a shortcode for the nickname which works fine, but sorting only shows an empty order list.
    Is there a quick way to do this the correct way?

      Hi Peter,

      Unfortunately you can sort only by order meta, and customer’s nickname is not saved as order meta. One suggestion would be to sort by customer’s ID – in this case you need to enter _customer_user in “Key (if sortable)”. Another option – sort by billing name – in this case you need to enter _billing_first_name there.

      Please let me know if that’s good enough. If not – I will try to come up with another solution.

      Best regards,
