  2. Preview mode in the Email builder - no "Go back" button

    When using the Preview mode in the Email builder, there's no possibility to quickly go back to editing the email. The only way is to go back to Email marketing feature, filter the Newsletter and open the email issue again.
    Can you please change the flow? It's kinda annoying...

  4. Get On fly Resized image from AWS S3 storage into Kentico

    Kentico default Media library supports " URLs of resized images in media libraries" like below
    Permanent URL*
    (e.g., /Kentico/getmedia/ed0be744-9e70-4056-8c7d-91fc5087813c/Panda.jpg.aspx?width=100&height=66)

    We lost the above feature when we will integrate Media Library with third party storage location like AWS S3 and Azure blob

    Can you provide this default feature when images stored images in S3 and Azure blob?

  5. auto-select the uploaded package

    When i update a new package to import, it would be nice if the new package will be selected automatically instead of having to selected it manually. (So many time i click « next » with the wrong package)

  6. Sort smart search by document name

    Did you know that DocumentName and Document title are not currently allowed as sorting options by default on smart search? Kentico Support's official recommendation is to go into the Modules and set the Pages module as customizable, to save document name and title as fields outside of _content (thus letting them be sortable)

    Title should be able to be one of the default sortable items without having to customize the site.

  9. Improve user role permission settings

    I think the current way Kentico is handling the permissions is not the way to go. I am very surprised that a Role is applied to the Kentico tree (pages) even if I don’t add the role in the tree. We have a large site with multiple editors. Some editors are only allowed to work in one part of the Kentico Tree. Now I have to create a lot of ‘denies’ and when there is a user that has more than one role (for example a website part and a intranet part) I need to create a new role for…

  10. Kentico MVC - More control over URL Pattern for Content Only Page Types

    Currently, Content Only Page Types have a single URL Pattern field that is intended to somewhat connect the URL route of a page to the content tree. However, it seems to be limited to just a few simple macros like NodeAliasPath and DocumentCulture for simple URL paths this works. However for advanced URLs it does not cut it.

    I would love it if, at the very least, we could execute custom Macros in this property to craft more complex URLs (they currently don't work here based on my testing K10). Or maybe there needs to be some other mechanism to…

  11. Automatically generate scheduled tasks for web farms

    When you are using web farms, a few scheduled tasks need to be configured to execute on every server. When new servers are created by a rolling update or during auto-scaling, these tasks need to be created manually, or by writing a custom handler to generate them. It would be great if they could be flagged for automatic creation.

    The custom handler solution is described here:

  12. Web part Visibility Where Condition

    Allow a Where condition inside of a Web Part's Visibility so we can set up rules other than page types or roles. It would be nice to have the web part hide if a certain field isn't entered or set up other custom criteria there.

  13. Provide "proxy mode" option for Banned IPs

    When Kentico runs behind a load balancer, the Banned IP application is unable to react to the visitor's IP because the requests carry the IP of the load balancer. Microsoft provides a proxy mode in IIS to address this problem. A similar solution in Kentico would be helpful.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/iis/get-started/whats-new-in-iis-8/iis-80-dynamic-ip-address-restrictions#configuring-iis-for-proxy-mode

  14. Support for OpenID Connect

    Support for OpenID Connect.
    Although OpenID 2.0 is supported on Kentico, it seems that the newer OpenId Connect is not supported yet. I am sure that in future there will be more clients wanting to implement Connect instead so it would be great if they benefit a native support instead of handling custom external authentications.

  15. Add functionality to use Shift to select multiple items in a list

    On a page like Staging, when I want to select 10 items out of a 20 item list, I can't click the first item and then use the Shift button on my keyboard and click the last item to select them all at once.

    Instead I have to click 10 times to individually select each one.

    You do have the option of clicking the box to select the entire list, but if I want to highlight one chunk out of a big list, I can't do it quickly or efficiently without clicking every single individual item.

    This is a very…

  16. Redirect URLs/Aliases When Archiving a Page

    When I delete a page, I have the option to "Redirect old URLs to another page", which is great because one does not want to create broken links or 404 errors on your site for UX and SEO purposes.

    However when I archive a page, I don't have this option and have to manually follow these steps:

    - change original page alias
    - copy all aliases individually from original page
    - archive original page
    - past all aliases to redirected page

    When I archive a microsite with 10 pages and each page has 5-10 aliases, this becomes very time consuming…

  17. The ability to see what webparts are using particular transformations

    It would be a welcome addition to the kentico interface to be able to see where a certain transformation is being used. This could be implemented the same way as in pages were you can see what documents are using a particular page type. This would aid in the changing of transformations so we can track of what those changes might be affecting.

  18. Disable selected users all at one time

    Add the ability to disable multiple users at once in the Users app. Currently when you select multiple users you can 'Delete' selected items. I'm looking to just disable them.
    The use case is where you want your editors disabled in your production environment but they become re-enabled through the staging of objects and data from stage environment to production environment.

  19. External Form Post

    Allow for HTTP POST of a form that just goes to an external site. I don't want to have to write any C# or bypass everything with JQUERY or other library. I just want to put method="POST" and an action="externalurl" to send my form data to.

    e.g. Salesforce Web-to-Case, Web-to-Lead other third party widget that I want to embed in my site that has nothing to do with Kentico at all.

    Sometimes, you just don't want to Forms from Kentico as the information is going to SurveyGizmo or something else. Just a simple post to a 3rd party URL where…

  20. Allow import/export of XLIFF translation files for custom resource strings in the Localization app

    Kentico allows you to define custom, translatable resource strings via the Localization application, under the Resource strings tab.

    However, it doesn't look like there's a built-in method to export those resource strings to XLIFF file(s) for translation to other cultures.

    It would be beneficial to have the ability to send XLIFF files to a translation company to translate into a new culture, and import the updated XLIFF files directly into the site, as we can currently do with pages.
