#47606 new feature request

Display Site Health score on Dashboard

Can we add site health score and list of critical issues in Dashboard ?
Not many users would know that there is something called Site Health Check in new version of WordPress. So displaying the score and critical issues list in Dashboard will notify users who are not aware about it.

Plus every time user logs in to the backend, he/she is reminded that his/her site needs updating.

Thank you,

The things that need attention already have nags.
Given #47046 I think this ticket is just asking for another dashboard widget.

A Site Health dashboard widget sounds like an interesting idea to me, thanks for your proposal @guddu1315! Seems to me it needs some design feedback rather than accessibility feedback, I'm going to adjust the ticket properties :)

Good shout @guddu1315. Site Health is pretty hidden down in some submenu for what is arguably a feature that could use a little more attention as part of a good site hygiene strategy. An optional dashboard widget would be a good way to surface it.

The plugin version of Site Health already has a basic dashboard widget implemented: https://github.com/WordPress/health-check/issues/226 @SergeyBiryukov is currently looking at whether this can be merged into core I believe.
