  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. Add an Umbraco style image cropper.

    * Allows you to pre-define crop sizes
    * Allows requesting of images by pre-defined sizes or by an arbitrary dimension
    * Focal point of image can be set on every image, this is absolutely critical to have when automating crops
    * Individual crops can be edited
    * Cropped image variants are created automatically from the parent image on demand and cached.

  5. Add to the Webpart's context menu a Show/Hide button

    In the design mode, add to the context menu of each webpart a Show/Hide button, which toggles the visibility of the webpart, instead of the need of opening the webpart's configuration page each time we need to set the visibility.

  6. Allow AJAX for Dependent fields in Form tab

    Right now, if you have a field that's dependent on other fields, the Form tab refreshes when you lose focus on the initiating field. If you're using the mouse that's fine, but if you're using the keyboard, you lose cursor focus.
    If instead, you used AJAX (UpdatePanels, whatever) internally to handle dependent fields, you could update individual fields' status without losing focus.
    This shouldn't be terribly hard: you know the AJAX triggers and updatepanel locations already because you have the "Depends on another field" and "triggers another field" checkboxes already.

  7. Built-in ticketing, helpdesk and customer engagement

    Kentico is great. It is a well rounded solution where the only limitation is your imagination. However in my opinion, there is probably just 1 area that is lacking: customer support/engagement. I have seen product owners at Kentico argue that there are existing solutions e.g: Zendesk, LivePerson, Deskpro etc - while this maybe true, it is also very bothersome from a UI/UX perspective - as the look and feel is less consistent. It is also frustrating having to open up accounts with various SaaS/PaaS vendors (or even worse - having to set up a separate LAMP/WAMP stacks to support PHP…

  8. Media Uploader

    Add ability to enter title & description to media file upload control since these fields are utilised by other media library web-parts as standard

    We would like any user to be able to upload files - therefore we don't want to use only admins / content editors to upload using media libraries app - we need to use the media uploader but it wont allow entry of the above mentioned fields

  9. GetBizFormFile.aspx handler for not authenticated users

    It would be great if the GetBizFormFile.aspx handler (e.g. link to uploaded files in an online form) returned 401 error or redirected not authenticated users to the login page instead of returning 200 OK response and showing a blank screen.

  11. Add check-in check-out buttons to On-Site Editing menu

    On-Site Editing of pages in sites configured with page check-in/check-out is cumbersome because there is no check-in/check-out control in the On-Site Editing menu. Please add a button to the On-Site Editing menu for this purpose.

  12. How can I automate the importing of contacts into kentico from our internal server

    How can I automate the importing of contacts into kentico from our internal server. Our server generates a list of names (Contacts) nightly, it would be great to have the done automatically, so we can start an on-boarding process through direct email.

  13. Allow tab index on Forms

    Add the ability in Forms to specify the tabindex for each form element. I know you can do this with a custom layout, but I want it in default layout.

  14. Short hand or macro for included all page type columns in the repeater column setting

    Since its best practice to set the columns attribute when using a repeater or univewer. It would be nice if there was a shorthand to include all the columns of a specific page type. I often find that I need all the columns of my page type, and a few document columns (nodeid, nodealiaspath, etc). It would be nice to be able to specify something like cms.menuitem.* as a short hand for including all the columns in the menuitem page type (much like a table.* in sql).

    This would be really useful when you end up adding columns to a…

  15. Allow Ecommerce and Marketing to run off seperate SMTP relay services

    Kentico should be able to allocate separate SMTP servers to separate rolls. Transaction based mails should not be mailed out through the same server as marketing mails as this skews opening rates, click rates etc. when reporting.
    Even something as simple as a setting in the EMS to specify an SMTP option aside from the default.

  16. Create a persistent file upload control that does not lose the file on post back

    We have forms that lose all uploaded files when:
    -Validation error occurs
    -There are fields whose visibility is dependent on a selected drop-down value.
    - We use a multi-step form

    Please create a file upload control that does not erase the uploaded file on post back.

  17. Update calendar control to customize the date display, year limit, like how we have in jquery.

    In online form - calendar control object we can add customization in terms of date format, year range, etc like how we have customization feature in jQuery UI Calendar. this feature will be highly helpful rather than making updates to the core jQuery files.

  18. Officially support multiple page placeholders

    While you unofficially support multiple page placeholders per an article written in 2010 (http://devnet.kentico.com/articles/using-multiple-page-placeholders-in-portal-engine). It would be nice that this method was officially support by kentico. There are instances where multiple page placeholders causes functionality to break (drag and drop widgets with editable text webparts), that I wish kentico would fully supported.

    Given the simplification that multiple page placeholders all to complex designs, and that an unsupported prototype has been in kentico since version 5.5. I think it is time to fully support this feature.
