  1. comments popup for approval or rejection in workflow

    When rejecting (or approving) content, the ability to add comments is hidden in the properties tab. It's be nice if, when an approver hits approve or reject, they get a popup or similar, prompting them to add comments. These comments would then be passed back to the creator of the document.

  4. UI Support for Setting Document Type Icon

    Add the ability through the user interface to upload or select the icon that you want to represent a new document type at the time that you're creating that Icon, instead of having to manually replace the auto-generated icon on the server.

  6. Implement a more secure hash algorithm to store user passwords

    Currently Kentico 5.5 uses SHA-1 hash function to store user passwords. In 2005 SHA-1 hash was cracked, and later in 2009 was found it could be cracked faster.

    It would be great if Kentico would use one of the safer algorithms like SHA-2, WHIRLPOOL, or RIPEMD. The U.S organization NIST even recommends that people move away from SHA-1 to a more secure standard.

  7. Active Directory User Details

    When integrating with Active Directory, it would be good to bring over the username, fullname and email address of the user instead of just the domain username.

  8. Independent recipient lists

    Create list of recipients and send e-mails to them. Currently you create e-mails (newsletter issues) and assign recipients to it. I want it vice-versa: create list of recipients with statistics independently to newsletters.

  9. E-mail "Sent" statistics

    Provide transparent statistics of recipients who were sent an e-mail. I would like to see who were sent the e-mail and when the e-mail was actually sent.
    It would be also nice to see overview of statistics across all recipients
    - minute graph displaying how many e-mails were sent after hitting "Send e-mail" button (so that I'm able evaluate how long does it take to send all e-mails and change SMTP servers accordingly)
    - minute graph displaying ammount of e-mails which were opened after certain time (so that I'm able to evaluate typical time between sending my e-mails and opening…

    Integration with Strands recommender was introduced in Kentico 8. It enables to learn behaviour of visitors and recommend them appropriate content.

  11. Add a Show Border property to the Facebook Like Box Web Part

    The Facebook documentation for the like box has a show_border attribute. Adding a Show Border property to the Web Part would allow the border to be switched on or off as required.

    Thank you for pointing out this issue. It will be fixed in hotfix #56 for version 7

  12. Allow sort by score

    When looking at ONLINE MARKETING > SCORING > {SCORE NAME} > CONTACTS you are able to sort by FULL NAME and CONTACT STATUS, but not SCORE. For this to be functional, the user needs to sort by SCORE.

    If you sort by either of the two listed above, it is impossible to order the SCORE in acending or decending order.

    This will be supported in v8. By the way – why would you need to sort contacts in descending order? Aren’t you interested only in top contacts in terms of scoring?

  13. BizFormItem - add ability to add an EventHandler like other object types, instead of having to resort to ObjectEvent

    For most object types you can do something like this:
    DocumentCategoryInfo.TYPEINFO.Events.Insert.After += MyCustomInsertAfter;

    But there's no TYPEINFO or Events exposed for BizFormItem, so handling form insert events requires handling the more generic ObjectEvent and then filtering by object type. For API consistency it would be nice to be able to handle BizFormItem events the same as for other object types.

    In version 7 we implemented Chat module which can be used for this purpose.

  15. Allow global resizing of images/attachments

    Currently images are not resized when uploaded to a forum post. A max file size can be specified but the system does not resize based on global site settings. Would like to add the ability of resizing all images no matter what Kentico developed webpart or page is used.

  16. Enable path macros in Bizform "redirection url"

    At the very minium add support for a path macro in the redirection url field. I want to be able to embed a biz form on multiple parts of my site, and redirect each form to a different thank you page (./thankyou).

  17. notifications to multiple emails

    If an error occurs in production more people need to be notified and there is only single email address allowed in field "Error notification e-mail address". We have developers in USA and in India - in different time zones. And the boss wants to be notified as well :-).

    This idea was implemented. Multiple e-mails could be separated by semicolon.

  18. Show templates shared by same layout

    Just like you show documents shared by same template (in template editing window it is in documents tab) - please show all templates shared be same layout (maybe same way - you can show them in separate tab). Thank you.

  19. Import Toolkit Output to Log

    Would be great to have a written file log for the import toolkit. That log should not only show the results of the import but amount of time taken. When migrating a site from another CMS, some imports, such as users, could take a LONG time. Would be good for launch day to be able to know how long that is. Testing with the import toolkit would help.

    We should be able to choose from our custom Web Part layouts when we create widgets. Right now it can only be done when editing a web part.
