  1. Add "reset to default" button to widget properties pop-up

    When setting default values to widget properties that are hidden, there is no way to reset the property value if the widget default values are changed.

    For example, when adding 10 instances of a widget, they will have the hidden field values set as defined in the widget properties.
    If the default values are then changed, all 10 instances of the widget need to be removed and re-added to the pages.

    By introducing a "reset to default" button, the hidden field values (or all field values) could be "refreshed", without the need to re-add the widget.

    • Can we get a Microsoft Edge specific body class instread of the 'Chrome' and 'Safari' classes?

      Hi Kentico,

      On https://docs.kentico.com/k10/developing-websites/designing-websites-using-css there is a table with the body classes that are generated based on the browser the client is viewing the project in.

      Can you explain why the Microsoft Edge browser and the Google Chrome browser bot get the Chrome and Safari body class. Why isn't a Microsoft Edge specific class generated and is this maybe something you can add in the near future? It would be great to have a 'Edge' class or something like that.

      Best regards,
      Sander Bras

      • Add scrollWheel property to Google Maps (and more if possible)

        The current Google Maps webpart does its thing, but does not include all the possible options you set onto a google-map.
        Most of the options currently available are the options you'll generally use, but it is missing one. An that is a very important one imo, and that option is: scrollWheel.

        The scrollWheel option allow you to enable/disable zooming with the scrollwheel of your mouse. This is a boolean and defaults to true.
        Nowadays, it is more common to have map element on a page that is so big that it can span the entire page. If you, in such…

          • Add a gender neutral avatar to the standard Kentico build as the default

            Currently in a standard build the default avatar for all users is a male. This will be incorrect for 50% of the users and obviously doesn't make sense.

            It should be a gender neutral avatar and would be a really quick change to implement.

            • ability to post an HTTP webhook for a Bizform form submission

              I would like to propose a new Bizform feature: the ability to configure an HTTP URL with each Bizform. Once configured, any form submission to this form, would trigger an HTTP Webhook POST to the specified URL. The payload of the HTTP POST would be – ideally in JSON – the form submission data.

              One of the best Wordpress form plugins – GravityForms – does this already. See https://gravityflow.io/gravity-forms-webhooks/. The UI screenshot in the article is helpful in understanding what configuration options there might be. Ideally the implementation would use a queue, much like the mail queue, to allow…

              • Add the ability for CSS stylesheets and Page templates to be global instead of site-specific.

                I've run into an issue where a client may want to create numerous sites on the same Kentico installation, and want all sites to have access to common CSS and Page templates. I think this currently requires updating each CSS stylesheet and Page template's list of sites that has access to it.

                It would be nice if there was an option to make a CSS stylesheet or Page template "global", so that individual sites wouldn't need to be assigned to them.

                • Detect bounced mails by REST service

                  We are using SMTP services from SPARKPOST to send our marketing emails in Kentico. The bounced emails are stored in SPARKPOST and there is no POP account to receive this emails. We also use several email address for sending the emails and some of them are just forward accounts, so there is no proper way to get the bounced emails as Kentico is setup.

                  Please consider the possibility to monitor emails using REST. SPARKPOST as many other email SMTP solutions offer in their API the possibility to get the list of bounced emails, in this way will be easy for…

                    • Proper AWS and S3 support

                      For example you cannot control what gets mapped to S3 (like you can with Azure). 2nd it clearly does not page the contents of the bucket when listing the media content which causes it to crash after around 100 items in the folder.

                          • 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,…

                            • The Kentico installer should do server environmental tests for compatabilty

                              The Kentico installer should do basic OS, .NET, SQL Server, and IIS version testing and refuse (or at the very least, sternly warn) to complete an install of Kentico CMS.

                              Recently, were were bitten by "dbo" and "db_owner" default owner differences between different versions of MS-SQL Server, which caused Kentico to fail in the most horrible ways over custom tables created by new Page Types. Much head scratching could have been avoided with a SQL Server test at install time.

                                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

                                  It would be awesome to have variable scoring in the Scoring engine. It's flexible on when you can determine a score should be applied, but the amount is fixed.

                                  For example, say a person is filling out a retirement form, i want to award more points the older they are (maybe Contact.Age/10), so someone who is 20 gets 2 points, someone who is 80 gets 8 points.

                                  • Page stylesheet url to include cache breaking string

                                    Stylesheets are usually cached in browsers, so users either need to clear the cache or wait till the cache expires for any change in css to be reflected. Ideal way to approach this would be to have a cache breaking querystring (like last modified date or latest version number) to stylesheet link that kentico adds to the header, so whenever we update the stylesheet it reflects immediately for a user.

                                    • add a macro rule that allows you create a contact group based on a checkbox in a form. E.g. enter a competeiton and sign up for newsletter

                                      Currently the macro for contact groups that are conditional on answers on a form is string based.
                                      However, many forms have "sign up to newsletter/marketing" type checkboxes on them and it would be useful to have a default macro rule allowing a contact group based on this checkbox

                                      • Copied pages should initially be in edit state

                                        Copying a published document should not make the copied version publish, as you should be able to decide whether that copy should be published or not.

                                        At the moment that document becomes published by default, there should be a way for this not to be done automatically.

                                        It should go to a draft state, therefore unpublished if using workflow.

                                        • Responsive Images Attachment GUID Selector

                                          In K10 we started with responsive images. Kentico uses Attachment Variants to get this working.

                                          I would like to have a media selector, which returns the attachment GUID. Currently only the attachment URL is selected.
                                          But I need the GUID for almost every attachment helper method in the CMS code.

                                          It would be very cool to have an attachment selector, where the user could upload a new file as cms.file (content) or as document attachment (attachment) but not to the media library.
                                          The selector stores the GUID, so we could get all attachments (with variants) to create our responsive images…
