What is the Envato Author Dashboard?

The Envato Author Dashboard is a powerful tool available to Elements Authors. It allows you to stay up-to-date with your earnings and item performance, plus gain insight into customer search trends.

By regularly using the dashboard, you will have a comprehensive overview of how you (and your portfolio) are performing.

How does the Envato Author Dashboard Work?

Once you’ve started publishing regularly, your Envato Author Dashboard will display a detailed earnings report, your individual item performance plus customer search trends, to help you know what’s working and what to create next. There are 3 separate dashboard views, which can be found at the top of the screen.

These views are:

  • Earnings Dashboard
  • Item Performance Dashboard
  • Trends and Insights Dashboard
