  1. Visual e-mail builder for marketers to replace current e-mail template editing experience

    Make a visual drag and drop editor for e-mail templates that could be used for static issues, dynamic issues, marketing automation communications, and on-line form auto-responders (basically all points of e-mail in EMS). The key to this would be to now to have to have content admins and marketers know macros to build e-mail templates.

    It seems like the parts of the on-line form builder or widgets could be re-used to create this solution.

    I firmly believe that this is needed for EMS to complete with other marketing automation platforms.

    I know this has been looked at before and declined,…

    • Provide analytics on form autoresponder emails

      When someone fills out a form and an autoresponder is sent, we have no visibility into open rates, click rates, unsubscribes, etc. In a recent campaign, we were unable to provide relevant stats to our client. Email autoresponders consistently show the highest engagement rates of any email campaigns. Tracking the results of these autoresponders is a must-have! Thanks - Eric

      • Using direct uploader form control in forms

        Enable usage of direct uploader form control in forms and not only page types - it can be usable to prevent lose the selected file when page has postback.

        • Create versioning in Staging Task Groups

          As much as the task group lists are useful. We feel that if they could be further developed so that it includes versioning of pages/templates for non-technical website editors.

          This would mean that website editors could work on the same template and stage only their changes rather than all of the changes that have been made on that page/template.

          • Warning displayed when deleting media library item that is referenced somewhere

            When deleting an item in the media library it would be great for kentico to warn the use of where the image is used. So these references can be changed before deleting the item.

            • Report permissions

              There needs to be a way to manage access to report categories or particular reports using user role permissions.

              We are often creating reports that agregarte data across mutiple sites and these should not be avialbale to all editors on all sites just because they need to have access to other site level reports.

              • Built-in localization support for System.Web.Mvc.RemoteAttribute on data models

                Most data annotation attributes are supported and localized automatically when a call to builder.UseDataAnnotationsLocalization(); is added in the ApplicationConfig file, which is great and we've adopted this across the board, however the RemoteAttribute does not appear to be supported.

                It is used for real-time remote validation, such as checking if an email address is in use.

                • Addition of Responsive Image Management to Media Libraries

                  It would be great to have Responsive Image Management added to Media Libraries. It is a really nice feature for page attachments and would be a great addition to Media Libraries.

                  Thanks!

                  • Smart Search Improvements

                    A code that handles populating values from "Value" field or reading from Query can be merged in the way that it reads Value first, then populate from Query. That way You can use macro to localize first dropdown option for example!
                    Smart search results : access to the count of the items option would be nice.
                    Implementation of the smart search filter to work over Query string would also be nice. (Not reloading, but pushing the state to the url for example, so speed is not lost...and values are checked on first load only).

                    • Truly clean minimum install

                      It would be awesome to have the ability to install a minimum install WITHOUT the media libraries, templates, page types, etc. that are in the installer for the starter sites. These files, etc. should only be included if you select the starter site that needs them.

                      • tracking download of files in custom page type

                        I have custom page type with field "file". Kentico doesn't track download of this file. Only download of CMS.File is tracked.

                        Please, add tracking of download of all files.

                        • Pass Parameters to Stored Procedure from Query Repeater Webpart

                          create a dedicated field in the Query Repeater Webpart to pass parameters, including macros, and add something like ##PARAMS## in the queries section, (similar to ##WHERE##) that will pass these params from the webpart into a stored procedure. also, currently, in the queries section i must select SQL Query and enter EXEC Stored_procedure_name if i want to pass params via an awkward patch by passing them in the webpart COLUMNS field. if i select Stored Procedure in the queries section - i can't pass params. this whole piece of kentico is not sorted out and fills patchy. using stored procedures…

                          • Multi-lingual sites - dont change current site language if default culture page is loaded.

                            If we have a multi-lingual site, and set the Combine with default culture Setting option, if a page is not available or translated, then it loads the page in the default culture. However, it also then changes the selected language for the site to the default culture.
                            This is confusing for the site visitor, since not only is the page in a different language, but also the header, footer, menus and all surrounding content.
                            It would be preferable if the default culture page was loaded inside the existing language, without changing the site language.

                            • Add an icon on the Design Tab for nonstandard layouts

                              Currently, there's no indication when looking at the Design Tab that a Web Part on the page is using a customized or non-default Layout. It would be great if, on these web parts, an icon would appear (similar to the eyeball icon of the JavaScript web part) when a web part is using a nonstandard layout, so that a developer knows they can't just edit the ascx file and expect the page to update.

                              • Drag and drop content ordering for the order stories appear on the front end. The current "arrow" solution is archaic and slow.

                                We need to be able to drag and drop articles in the Featured Content Listing in order to change the order they appear on the front end. Using and up/down arrow is inefficient and cumbersome. Event a manual entry number solution would be a huge improvement.

                                  looking for free version templates provided on kentico. I have already used some marketplace templates. I hope and request if there can be more in the future or maybe on the new kentico editions. We get same designs and templates on all kentico editions.Right now being a gold partner and even latest kentico we are lacking in themes and templates,

                                  I can see other players in the market providing unlimited templates.

                                  Requesting to please update more portal template at the moment you only have a few when installing kentico..

                                  Thanks

                                  • Unversioned fields on page types

                                    I have a field on my page type which I'd like to update programmatically from an external data source. However the documents are versioned, so I cannot update the field if the document is checked out by a user.

                                    Since I am maintaining this value programmatically, there is no reason to version the field. If there were a way of flagging fields as "unversioned" and allowing them to be updated via API without checking out the page, that would solve my issue.

                                    • Optional setting to move On-Site Editing menu to bottom of page

                                      Sites that have sticky headers collide with the Kentico On-Site Editing menu components. This is problematic when the site's sticky header contains the navigation elements. It would be nice to have the option to switch the Kentico navigation elements to the bottom of the page instead of the top.

                                      • Strongly-typed Cached objects

                                        Kentico manages an internal cache that, in part, includes object types such as Users, Custom Tables, Documents, and many other types of objects.
                                        However, if you use methods like UserInfoProvider, CustomTableInfoProvider, or TreeProvider, there are no options to use these internal caches.

                                        If, instead, you use CacheHelper.GetItem, you can retrieve the cached versions of these objects, but in a separate data type that cannot be converted to the strongly-typed objects.

                                        This product idea is to update the API to allow us to retrieve the cached objects. This could be by updating the individual providers to deliver UserInfo, CustomTableItem, etc objects…

                                        • Multi-factor authentication with TOTP/Google Authenticator

                                          Kentico should change its multi-factor-authentication to use industry-standard methods rather than its current custom implementation.

                                          Kentico currently offers multi-factor authentication using the Kentico Authenticator Android application. This is a non-standard tool, and is entirely useless for people without an Android device. As a result, multi-factor authentication cannot be broadly deployed and is all-but-useless in a real-world environment.

                                          Kentico should instead use the industry-standard TOTP method. TOTP is based on an IETF standard, and has been implemented by Microsoft, Google, DropBox, GitHub, Yahoo, and hundreds of other organizations. It supports key generation across all platforms and using hardware-based devices, including Google…
