By default, WooCommerce has a status meta box (widget) that loads in the WordPress dashboard. A lot of times this isn’t used, as there isn’t a lot of information. We find that people either use the more in-depth reporting tool or a more robust solution such as Metorik. In this case, if you aren’t using it, it is better to disable it to speed up the admin area.
You can unselect it from within the screen options, but it will still be an option there for users to re-enable. It’s better to just get rid of it altogether. To disable the WooCommerce status meta box simply select “Disable Status Meta Box” under the WooCommerce section.
