  1. Add Properties to MVC Widget Sections

    Kentico 12 introduces MVC Portal, which uses Widget Sections to add structure to your widget placement.

    These structures do not allow for properties to be passed to them to configure the section. This is important because on mobile-responsive sites, you could have a 2 column (50-50) layout that on desktop is 50-50, mobile 75-25, or you could have a 2 column layout that on large is 80-20, medium 50-50, small 100 and 100, etc.

    Along with this many times you want to add a wrapping class to a section to style the elements within it.

    We want the ability to…

    • Please allow salesforce sandbox conncection to be used for integration testing.

      Right now the compiled code for Salesforce authentication has "login.salesforce.com" hardcode for Oauth. Please change that to something can be changed via web.config or settings key, so developers can switch that to "test.salesforce.com" to test integration with sandbox.

      • Automatically generate MVC View/Controller/Repository boilerplate

        Currently, Kentico will allow automatic generation of the Model based on page types.
        However, in order to match Kentico's existing structure, you also have to add a View, a Controller, and an Interface and implementation class for the Repository (The latter not strictly necessary, but it is if you want to match Kentico's internal classes' structure.)
        Obviously the View and Controller will need to be customized, but a lot of it (the files themselves, the class definitions and using statements, the constructors for the Controller, etc) are going to be boilerplate.
        Ideally, this would be via something like a zip…

        • Select language when adding a link to our newsletter.

          Fix this situation

          Description:
          Situation: a multi-language website (FR - EN - NL) and communication that is sent in both French and Dutch through the Kentico EMS.

          In our pages application we mostly set our culture to NL (default).
          When turning to the email marketing application and setting up a new email campaign in French, I come across this inconvenience: when I try to insert a link to one of our pages, I see only the pages in Dutch. Quit inconvenient while completing a French email.

          The only way I can solve this write now is by opening the pages…

          • Copy product document together with SKU data and product option categories cross multiple sites

            I would like to copy a product document together with it's connected SKU data and all applied product categories across multiple sites.

            Currently this is not possible (maybe it is now in 12)...

            In Kentico 11 I can only copy the product. The SKU data is missing after coping the document. This requires to edit almost anything in the new document again - which makes it senseless to copy...

              Officially Kentico only supports SAML 1.0/1.1. Needs to also support SAML 2.0.

                • attributes

                  Form fields could use a flexible "additional attributes" field, which would allow users to add whatever attributes they'd like. Following a syntax like the style attribute, a user could add this, for example: "placeholder:Email Address;", and then your server-side code could split and parse the name/value pair into the input field.

                    Kentico adds to email from email marketing this properties:

                    • Search the entire Media Library and all sub-folders

                      Is there a way to do a Global search in Media Library?
                      I.e. when at the root folder, do a search that will find all the images in all subfolders?
                      e.g. If I want to find all the "achill" images that are in the Media Library and I go to the root folder and search for "achill" -> no images are found
                      I need to search each folder individually, so if I go to the sub-folder and search for "achill" => I find all the "achill" images in the folder
                      Searching the entire Media Library and all subfolders

                      • OpenID Connect Support

                        While Kentico does support OpenID, "OpenID Connect" performs many of the same tasks but does so in a way that is standardized and API-friendly.

                        We have centralized authentication across numerous sites (both internal and external) using OpenID Connect and our Kentico site is the one lone holdout due to lack of support.

                          • timezone display on admin site

                            Administration site does not display correct time (as set in timezone settings) except few places like Pages and Reports.

                            This must work across the board.
                            For example EventLog and Users last login timestamps are useless without being converted to site's timezone.

                            • Media Library, set and remember 'Items per page' for Pagination

                              1. Set and Remember 'Items per page' preferences (in Media Library / per User).

                              Currently when we change the items per page settings in Media Library, we can go to other folders in the Media Library and the # of items is remembered correctly.
                              When exiting and re-entering the Media Library, it defaults back to 10.

                              We would like to have a persistent setting of 100, possibly per user.

                              2. Respect the cms.config AppSettings CMSDefaultListingPageSize everywhere in pages/pop-ups that have pagination.

                              Currently, it seems to affect the Paging application and the amount of results there, yet the pagination in e.g.…

                                When keyword searching a media library, the search only searches the file name. It would be very helpful to have the search also look at the file title and file description fields that can be set on the file.

                                • Exclude email tracking stats like open rate, click rate, etc from certain IP's or email domains.

                                  Today we see open rate, click rate, etc for the entire list that the email was sent to. Our entire company is on our email lists so we can get a clear picture of the effectiveness of our various email marketing tactics. The results are being skewed by our internal recipients.

                                    • Unsubscribe a lot of names at once

                                      I have many emails that I need to remove from my lists. I would like to import a list and opt them out in one shot.

                                      • 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…

                                        • Provide 'where used' and link checking functionality

                                          For users it is extremely hard to keep track of links, pages and images.
                                          Especially when the content tree or medialibrary needs to be restructured.

                                          I know there is already funtionality which creates aliasses automatically, but in the end that is not a real solution.

                                          So it would be great if you could see where a specific document or medialibrary-item is used.
                                          This could be done by analyzing the html which comes from the fckeditor.

                                          It would also be great if some kind of periodically link checking would be done, so the users get notified if there are any broken…
