  1. Multi-select contacts in workflow processes

    It would be great if we had checkboxes/multi-select when looking at contacts in workflows so that more than one contact at a time can be manually transitioned through processes and/or deleted.

    • A method to get the URL of media file thumbnails in given sizes

      On the MediaFileInfoProvider or MediaFileHelper there should be a method to get the URL for a resized thumbnail of a given media file.

      This method should take the normal maxSideSize, width and height parameters and return a URL to the relevant thumbnail (ensuring it is created if it doesn't exist) on whatever storage system the site is using.

      If the site is using a CDN then the URL returned should be on that CDN's endpoint.

        • Allow customizing time zone per culture in Pages app

          In the Pages app, no matter which culture you have selected, date/time controls display whatever time zone is set for the site (or user). Please change this so that date/time controls automatically adjust to the culture you have selected.

          • Make screenwidth/screenheight dynamic for web parts

            In certain web parts you need to add the screenwidth and screenheight in pixels (as with the content slider or a google maps).
            Macro's here do not work such as {% CurrentDevice.ScreenPixelsHeight #%}.

            • 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.

              • Usability change - Make sure your backend saves changes the same way in all modules

                If you look at your modules, sometimes changes will be autosaved, in other screens the save button is at the top, sometimes in another place. You have different teams working on these modules, but please don't ignore usability for your backend users.

                • Add macro rule containing score

                  Hi, there is no rule using contact score which we can use for personalization.

                  For example you want to show some content only for users with score between 20 and 50, but there is no rule for that. So we try to work around that with Contact Statuses and Marketing automation because there is trigger based on Contact score.

                  First we set up scoring (rules, etc.), then create 3 contact statuses - Cold lead, Warm lead, Hot lead
                  For each contact status (lead phase) we create a marketing automation plan - Cold lead MA, Warm lead MA, Hot lead MA …

                  • Make reports installable in custom modules

                    When creating custom modules, there is no possibility to include reports that are bound to the module when creating installation packages.

                    It would simplify the custom module installation process a lot, especially when there are numerous reports.

                    • Form controls in module installation packages

                      At present creating a Module Installation package only includes the form control files. It does not include the Objects definition and hence it is not imported into the database.

                      Only work around is to have two files to install the module - one the Nuget Package and the second containing the Exported object. This makes installation a bit more complex since we can't just serve the module from a Nuget feed.

                      • generated code class inheritance

                        Introduce class inheritance in generated page type model classes. Right now a page type can inherit from a base page type which is very handy. However when c# classes are generated (in code tab of the Page Types app) they both inherit from TreeNode which is very inconvenient as it denies access to base properties across all derived classes. The derived class should inherit from the base class instead of TreeNode.

                        • Ignore Process Domain Prefix when under azurewebsites.net

                          Currently we implement most of our sites on Kentico within the Azure environment. One of the issues we consistently have project to project is when we set the Process Domain Prefix to always go to www, we can no longer use the sitename.azurewebsites.net url. This is because it will automatically redirect the site to www.sitename.azurewebsites.net which is invalid. Another issue with this is when trying to use Traffic manager within the Azure environment. Traffic manager uses the azurewebsites.net address and checks the response code of the request to ensure it is a 200. Traffic manager only views a 200 as…

                          • Product Attribute Price Adjustment as percentage

                            Currently you can speicfy a price adjustment as a fixed amount in the Main Currency. I'd like to see the ability to set the price adjusment as a percentage of the Product Price.

                            I'm not sure of all the scenario's that this will be suitable to, but I have been asked for this for a clothing store which wants to add a percentile based amount to larger sizes.

                              Hello,

                              This looks like an unusual scenario. Have you considered a customization?
                              I will wait if there are more supporters for this idea. However, It sounds like a rare case.

                              thank you

                              Kind Regards
                              Michal Kadak

                              This is an odd issue as it will only affect users who have custom pricing implemented using a field other than "SKUPrice" and enable the Order Editing feature. At present when an item is added to the order the SKU is serialized to a field in the OrderItem table and this in turn contains the SKUPrice field. If you have a custom provider that requires additional fields this is not found when editing an order.

                              I know only a small subset of Kentico sites will enable order editing and even fewer will come across this problem.

                                  • In Contact Management, I would like to have a list of the "Duplicates found and successfully updated" Contacts during an import

                                    Sometimes when I import new contacts, I get a number "Duplicates found and successfully updated." I would love to be able to see the list of duplicates that were updated. The reason I would like to see this list is because sometimes, I don't want the contacts on multiple Contact Groups. By seeing the list of Duplicates, I would be able to manually make sure the duplicate contact is in the correct contact group instead of being in multiple contact groups.

                                    • Ability for Kentico to remember the last x passwords, so you don't enter those again within a period of time

                                      Hello

                                      Kentico user passwords and number of times you reset them should have a better control for us.

                                      Imagine you had a site where you password needs resetting every 3 months for example.

                                      What you want to make sure the user does not do is at the time to reset the password, add in the same password again.

                                      Is it possible for Kentico to remember the last 3 or 5 or even 10 passwords, so people can't use those when resetting their password?

                                      Thanks
                                      Ilesh

                                      • Add Validate method for BizFormItem class

                                        Currently when I fill a form using API there's no validation performed:

                                        BizFormInfo formObject = BizFormInfoProvider.GetBizFormInfo("myTestForm", SiteContext.CurrentSiteID);
                                        DataClassInfo formClass = DataClassInfoProvider.GetDataClassInfo(formObject.FormClassID);
                                        string className = formClass.ClassName;
                                        ObjectQuery<BizFormItem> data = BizFormItemProvider.GetItems(className);
                                        BizFormItem formRecord = BizFormItem.New(formClass.ClassName);
                                        formRecord.SetValue("MyTestField", "tooShort");
                                        formRecord.Insert();

                                        Idea is to create Validate method that passes all validation rules and returns list of rules violated, to call this method before .Insert
