  1. media library workflow & versioning

    Add versioning and workflow for media library items.

    Media libraries management is a bit limited compared to other content, to make them more usable a simple submit / approve workflow would go a long way. When you have a large number of content editors items can appear and disappear from the media library with no audit trail to understand what happened.
    Even just logging who uploaded an item would be helpful.

        • Allow use of different SMTP servers for Marketing and Transactional e-mails.

          Hello, every e-mail marketing expert I asked, told me that it is necessary to send Marketing and Transactional e-mails using different infrastructure. That is why I was very surprissed to find out, that Kentico does not allow to specify which SMTP servers it shoud use for Transactional and which for Marketing e-mails.
          Is there a chance to make it available please?

          • Search by Class Name in Module list

            As the title suggests, it would be nice if we could search by Class Name on the Modules page as it is not always obvious which module a class is defined in.

            • Support for Canadian Provinces in E-Commerce, Tax, and Elsewhere

              Currently it is not possible to specify tax for a specific province in Canada--there is only a country-wide sales tax option presently. However, each province has its own sales tax calculation, with total tax percentage ranging from 5% to 15%. See the following article for a brief description:

              https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sales_taxes_in_Canada

              It would be preferable to have the ability to set this taxes correctly in the native interface rather than writing a custom provider or connecting to a custom provider.

              • 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.

                  • Allow users to update temporary license keys without have to delete and add

                    Allow users to update temporary license keys to full license without have to delete the old and then add the new license. The goal would be achieve zero downtime when the switch is required.

                    • Schedule automatic resend of email campaign to 'unopened' recipients

                      Everyone is busy and don't always read your emails. Resending a campaign only to subscribers/recipients that have not opened the original email is quite effective. The most convenient is to have the option to schedule a resend to unopened at the time of sending the original email.

                      • Ability to customize facebook og and twitter card metadata within the existing Metadata section of the Properties tab

                        There is already a functioning area to hold and edit metadata information with good inheritance rules. Can the functionality be expanded to include metadata for common social networks such as facebook and twitter? This is a widely requested feature by clients and the Metadata section in the Properties tab seems like a natural fit.

                          • Add a culture setting for pre-computing week analytics data

                            Currently the web analytics of Kentico use the en-US culture to store week analytics data. Which means a week starts on Sunday and ends on Saturday by default.

                            If a customer uses a different culture such as nl-NL, the graph period selector uses the international standard of Monday as the start day and Sunday as the last day of the week.

                            Selecting this will however result in a period of 2 weeks, since the weeks are rounded, which can be very confusing for the customer.

                            Preferably there would be an option to select the culture in which the week analytics…

                                Hi Scott, we check ideas.kentico.com on a regular basis. It is true that many ideas have no answers – sometimes we wait for more inputs on given topics to find out how big support it gains and whether it can be aligned with our roadmap.

                                Sometimes it is not possibile to satisfy all supporters for all ideas, but we try to find those that would affect most users and simplify their workflow with Kentico.

                                Due to our one-year-long release cycles, it may appear that some ideas sit there forever, but we try hard to find place for them as well.

                                From the recent, let me mention: email builder and email marketing related ideas, ecommerce related ideas, or mvc-related ideas.

                                Best regards,

                                David Komarek

                              • Allow multiple category selection in listing and datasource webparts

                                When using a repeater webpart for instance you can only select 1 category. Same is true if you use a documents datasource or a hierarchical viewer webpart. The API allows you to pass in multiple categories when doing a document or object query but we do not have this same ability to do so with any of the out of the box controls.

                                I come across this use case in roughly every other site build. Unfortunately, it isn't available so we end up performing a no-so-fantastic work around by using the API to get what is needed vs. using OOTB…

                                  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

                                    SPEED PLEASE.... pages load so darned slow (ALWAYS), waiting 30 seconds or more is painfully unproductive. Please dedicate some resources to making the site faster, adding servers or whatever it takes, but the slowness from your end is stifling and has been this way for 2 years.

                                    • 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.

                                      • Better contact adding for static contact groups

                                        At the moment when you set up a static contact group there is no way to search for contacts to add to it. This makes the feature useless except for sites with a very small number of contacts or by using code to manage them. It would make sense to me to do away with the distinction between dynamic and static contact groups and have only one type made up from a rules based search with an option to determine how often the search is rerun.

                                        • transformations and SQL Queries Apps

                                          the way transformations and SQL Queries are tied to a page type is inconvenient.

                                          1. you can't just search for a transformation and SQL Query in CMS, unless you remember to which page type you tied them.

                                          2. when you move a page type to production via staging, all recently modified/new transformations and SQL Queries will be moved, but it's not necessarily required, especially when working on multiple projects and not everything should go to prod at the same time.

                                          3. sometimes i would delete a page type, but then i lose the tied transformations and SQL Queries, which is…
