  1. Hide or customise Kentico 12 Form Builder components

    Hide and customise default K12 Form Builder components.

    At the moment there are no ways to hide or customise form builder components in Kentico 12 and it can be frustrating for the content editors.

    A good example is for us, where we would never use the US Post Code form component, so it would be good to hide this.

  2. Limit Widgets allowed in Widget Zone

    Very simple, would be great to be allowed to limit what types of widgets are allowed in Widget zones. This way we can place a widget zone and allow specific widgets in there only (like a footer link widget in the footer area, or a header link widget, etc).

    Would be relatively simple. Add a widget class selector field to a Webpart zone that's set to be a Widget zone, then have the Widget selector filter the available widgets based on that.

  3. MVC + Portal Model (Widgets)

    I would have like to start using MVC with Kentico since the company I work for prefers MVC pattern over Web Forms. However after talking to Kentico support we found out you can not use the portal model with MVC.

    Is this functionaility planned for any feature release or part of Kentico 8?

  4. enable the SharePoint connectors to integrate with Office 365.

    The SharePoint connector in Kentico works great, but does not work with Office 365. As more and more organization are moving to Office 365, Kentico will need to integrate.

    Released  ·  Juraj Hrinik responded

    New SharePoint connector which works wit SharePoint 2010, 2013 and SharePoint Online is implement in version 8.1

  5. Add optional "Reply-to" field to Notification e-mail section

    This allows the recipient to reply directly to the email address entered into one of the fields of the form. Can't use the "From" address because most SMTP servers don't allow you to spoof the "From" address, but will allow any address in the "Reply-To" field.

  6. Better error message for invalid license in MVC sites

    When creating an MVC project and using an invalid or expired license, the mvc application is showing a 503.0 error. There should be a friendly message to guide you to look at the Event Log application. Also, the message in the log should be in Error state instead of Warning to really catch your eyes. An invalid or expired license is preventing the application from running, so for example, if we have cron jobs that look for error types and send emails, we won't catch that error in production if the filter is for Error only.

  7. MVC on Free Edition

    As of version 10 in Kentico, if a Developer wants to host a website built using Kentico CMS using MVC, they need to purchase a license for it.

    This is a barrier for developers to enter and try out Kentico CMS with MVC. Since Kentico recently announced (at the Roadshows) that MVC would become the primary development model in the next version, it makes sense to provide access to this model for new developers in that version. However as it stands, they will be forced to use one of the other, non-preferred development models (Portal, ASPX or Mixed) to evaluate…

  8. Make the web farm licensing more flexible for multi-tenant MVC sites

    Say we have a customer that has a 10-site EMS license.
    We're building MVC sites so we want the CMS in one web application and public-facing MVC site in another web application.
    To separate concerns between the sites as much as possible we'd like to have a single MVC web application for each site in the CMS.
    In the end though, there is only 1 physical servers involved (or Azure App Service plan) that hosts 11 web applications (CMS + 10 MVC applications).

    There is 1 additional web farm server license available for free when working with MVC so right…

  9. Visual e-mail builder for marketers to replace current e-mail template editing experience

    Make a visual drag and drop editor for e-mail templates that could be used for static issues, dynamic issues, marketing automation communications, and on-line form auto-responders (basically all points of e-mail in EMS). The key to this would be to now to have to have content admins and marketers know macros to build e-mail templates.

    It seems like the parts of the on-line form builder or widgets could be re-used to create this solution.

    I firmly believe that this is needed for EMS to complete with other marketing automation platforms.

    I know this has been looked at before and declined,…

  10. Form Builder, auto create new field name use label field

    I find that a lot's of client would like to use form builder feature. However, it is not good at back end table that the field name (table attribute name) is the control name that is hard to understand what is the field regarding to what kind of data. I suggest to auto generate with label, which is like create new object, we only need to enter display name and the code name / class name will auto created without space or invalid characters.

  11. Multi-factor authentication with TOTP/Google Authenticator

    Kentico should change its multi-factor-authentication to use industry-standard methods rather than its current custom implementation.

    Kentico currently offers multi-factor authentication using the Kentico Authenticator Android application. This is a non-standard tool, and is entirely useless for people without an Android device. As a result, multi-factor authentication cannot be broadly deployed and is all-but-useless in a real-world environment.

    Kentico should instead use the industry-standard TOTP method. TOTP is based on an IETF standard, and has been implemented by Microsoft, Google, DropBox, GitHub, Yahoo, and hundreds of other organizations. It supports key generation across all platforms and using hardware-based devices, including Google…

  12. 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.

    Hello,

    This is already supported scenario. Please see https://docs.kentico.com/k10/custom-development/creating-custom-modules/creating-installation-packages-for-modules#Creatinginstallationpackagesformodules-Conventionsfordatabaseobjects

    “The code names of form controls must start with the <module code name>. prefix (including the dot character)”

    Is this the solution for this idea or is there another issue?

    Thank you

  13. Allow for non global admins to access CSS Stylesheets

    We have situations where we need to allow designers to be able to update the css. However, we do not want to give the global administrator access. I recommend that Kentico allow for more granular permissions on the CSS Stylesheets module.

  14. Add search functionality to Custom Table Data app

    Out editors use the Custom Table Data app, but not the Custom Tables app. We have many rows of custom table data, so we'd like the ability to search custom table data without exporting to Excel.

  15. When editing any source code please make the editor take up as much screen real-estate as possible

    Often when working on the layouts the default layout code editor is only around 10 lines high. I'm aware there is a fit to window mode. But when the default option seems to fill only half the screen it gets a bit annoying.

    Maybe make the fill to window mode persist so when going back to the layouts editor it will remain at the 'fill to window' size?

  16. plain text email for email marketing templates and issues

    Regular email templates support plain text alternatives (multi-part mime types); however email marketing templates and issues do not. This is an essential feature of any email marketing system because it significantly enhances the non-spam signature of a message; our clients expect this to be available.

    Hello!

    New Email builder in Kentico 11 allows you to add the plaintext version to your marketing emails. If you do not want to write everything from scratch, you can always use the CTRL+A CTRL+C CTRL+V, but we strongly suggest that you compose your plaintext separately according to the message you want to push to readers on devices with no HTML email support.

    You can learn about the new additions in Kentico 11 at: https://www.kentico.com/product/kentico11

    Documentation on how to compose emails in Kentico 11 can be found at: https://docs.kentico.com/k11/on-line-marketing-features/managing-your-on-line-marketing-features/email-marketing/composing-marketing-emails

  17. Use current currency to perform calculations in Ecommerce Module

    At the moment we have faced issues in rounding because Kentico uses the sites Main currency in all its calculations. This should be changed so that the calculations are done using the current currency and then converted to the Main Currency to store those values.

    This issue has cropped up in an instance which uses 3 currencies and has seperate prices. As an example, we take the EUR price of 169 and an exchange rate to GBP of 1.2 we end up with 140.8333 in the main currency. When this 140.8333 is used in calculations it creates a rounding error…

  19. Leverage input types for US Phone and Zip form controls

    Alter markup of US phone and Zip Code form controls to enforce numeric entry and trigger mobile devices to launch their number pads instead of full alpha keyboards. Use something like this to handle iOS and Android behaviors:

    <input type="number" pattern="[0-9]*" inputmode="numeric">

  20. Add role permission to access Email Queue

    At the moment is not possible to access the Email Queue unless you have administrator privileges. It would be great to grant access to the Email Queue app for previewing email status to roles different to the Global Administrator.
