  1. Improve user role permission settings

    I think the current way Kentico is handling the permissions is not the way to go. I am very surprised that a Role is applied to the Kentico tree (pages) even if I don’t add the role in the tree. We have a large site with multiple editors. Some editors are only allowed to work in one part of the Kentico Tree. Now I have to create a lot of ‘denies’ and when there is a user that has more than one role (for example a website part and a intranet part) I need to create a new role for…

  2. 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.

  5. Enforce password expiration to specific roles

    It would be a good idea if there is a way to enforce password expiration for users enrolled in specific roles

  6. Passing accents in email addresses

    As gmail (among others) are now emails with accents in them, it would probably be preferable to allow these types of address to be accepted in Kentico (especially given that lot's of companies are moving their emails to gmail).

  7. Macros in Mass Email

    There have been several times when a general but personalized email needed to be sent to a group of site users. The email would need to have a personalized greeting, or some other user-specific data inserted in the body. Ideally I would be able to use the 'Mass Email' feature to select multiple users and create an email body that contains user-context macros, but this is not an option right now. These instances are pretty simple standalone cases where it would be overkill to use the online marketing messaging features.

  8. Update Kentico's Obsolete GeoLocation Integration to Support GeoLite2

    Kentico currently uses MaxMind's legacy GeoLite City for their free implementation for geolocation. Kentico also currently supports GeoIP Organization as a paid form of geolocation for more accurate results. Both of these are no longer supported by MaxMind and are no longer being updated. On January 2, 2019, these will be removed from their site entirely. Kentico should consider updating their integration to MaxMind's newer GeoLite2 and GeoIP2 otherwise all of their users will have no way to update their geolocation database. Over time, these databases will become less and less accurate until the built in geolocation in Kentico is…

  9. CSS Editor Expand/Collapse Regions

    It would be nice to have the ability to collapse regions of code in the editor to make it easier to focus on certain areas of code, and to make it easier to navigate around.

  10. Add "Notes" field to Localization app

    Add a simple text field in the Localization app for notes about each resource string. We have a team of publishers and it would benefit them to have a place to store their notes about where each resource string is displayed.

  12. Display Repeater webpart where condition errors in event log in Kentico CMS 10

    Hi Team,

    When we are using wrong statement in Repeater where condition then it should be display "Select statement" with detail query in event log. It was in Kentico CMS 9 and Kentico CMS 8 as well but not available in Kentico CMS 10.

  13. search input search term

    Smart Search webpart should populate with the search term, if present. This makes it easily recognized that a search was performed, and if there was a typo, the user would see it within the webpart. This has become a standard in searches.

  14. Vagrant Box

    Are you familiar at all with Vagrant? https://www.vagrantup.com/

    I was wondering if Kentico would consider provisioning a Vagrant Box with the necessary software installed so that Mac users could develop locally.

  15. Autoresponder template

    It is very frustrating having to post common template elements for Auto responders and email notifications in Forms.
    There needs to be an option for both to choose an email template. When you have chosen the email template. In that template you specify the content render region.
    The WYSIWYG area then will render content in replace of that.

    If there is a change in logo or head design for an email for a company you currently have to go through every auto responder, notification for all forms and a few other places to update them. It is a bit silly…

  17. Support for OpenID Connect

    Support for OpenID Connect.
    Although OpenID 2.0 is supported on Kentico, it seems that the newer OpenId Connect is not supported yet. I am sure that in future there will be more clients wanting to implement Connect instead so it would be great if they benefit a native support instead of handling custom external authentications.

  18. Automatically generate scheduled tasks for web farms

    When you are using web farms, a few scheduled tasks need to be configured to execute on every server. When new servers are created by a rolling update or during auto-scaling, these tasks need to be created manually, or by writing a custom handler to generate them. It would be great if they could be flagged for automatic creation.

    The custom handler solution is described here:

  19. Add 'non-Binary' to User Gender

    Currently Kentico uses an Integer to store the User Gender with the values 0 / 1 / 2 (Unknown / Male / Female / Other). Given the way things have changed can this be updated to 0 / 1 / 2 / 3 (Unknown / Male / Female / Non-Binary)

    Perhaps you can also add a UserGenderName field, so that non-binary options can be stored as text within that field. For out-of-the-box this can be left null and developers would need to implement based on their requirements.

    As an example Facebook allows at least 56 different string entries for Gender…

  20. 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.
