  1. Add "reset to default" button to widget properties pop-up

    When setting default values to widget properties that are hidden, there is no way to reset the property value if the widget default values are changed.

    For example, when adding 10 instances of a widget, they will have the hidden field values set as defined in the widget properties.
    If the default values are then changed, all 10 instances of the widget need to be removed and re-added to the pages.

    By introducing a "reset to default" button, the hidden field values (or all field values) could be "refreshed", without the need to re-add the widget.

  2. The Ability Schedule Webpage Updates

    Replace the "Save" button with two buttons: one that says "Publish now" and one that says "Publish later" with the ability to select a date and time for the page to publish the updates.

  3. Improve widget display in rich text editor

    Editors have difficulty differentiating widgets in the rich text editor / CKEditor, especially in large amounts of content. For example, the BlogPostBody field may contain multiple instances of our "Article Image" widget, but they all appear as only an icon.

    I don't know what the limitations are, and realize there may be efficiency issues since the lifecycle of the widget and web part have to run for the widget to display, but I'll put forward a couple solution ideas:

    Option 1) Have "Show preview in editor" checkbox and preview dimension fields in widget instance properties. Instead of the widget thumbnail,…

  4. Include attachments in site analytics

    Currently there is no record of document attachment navigation. As these files are not located in a library or a file type, they are not recorded as a navigation. This metric is important to our business as we have implemented automated PDF document production for our pages and would like to understand how often these attachments are downloaded.

  5. Create culture aliases with slash (/) e.g. ca/fr (French - Canada)

    I would like the ability to add culture aliases to be used as the prefix for the URL with a slash in the alias. The format would be CountryCode/LanguageCode. Currently the system allows you to save the culture alias in that format but visiting the URL will produce a 404 error.

  7. Enable copying of the content of the widgets

    Unfortunatelly, if the widget is copied and placed in the content page, it lose its content. The copy has only the settings, but the content is lost.
    Can you change this behavior?

  9. improved side by side comparison view of amended text

    it would save us a lot of time if there was a more visual way to configure the side-by-side version comparison i.e. yellow highlighting of added text, changes to documents (PDFs) added/removed (via a widget), images etc.

    Currently we can only see changes to text through text in red or red strike-through. we can't see any changes to the formatting i.e. styling applied to headings. we have a lot of changes daily and have to troll through looking at everything

  11. Calendar: Make different colour codes for different departments' events. For example PSP Sports - blue; PSP REC - green; MFRC - yellow.

    Calendar: Make different colour codes for different departments' events. For example PSP Sports - blue; PSP REC - green; MFRC - yellow; Health Promotion - orange.

    This would give the viewer a way to view the calendar events in the category they are interested in. Finding events and dates would become easier.

  12. Migrate documents from one document type to another

    It would be great to be able to migrate documents from one document type to another in CMS Desk (without using the SQL Import tool). This is especially useful when upgrading/overhauling/rearchitecting older Kentico websites.

    Hi, this idea is currently being explored an dwe are looking for the best solution.
    I would like to hear your suggestions regarding this functionality to make this as smooth as possible, please add your comments below the idea:

    What is the most common scenario?
    - Store administrator who needs to change page type of a product
    - Site administrator during site redesign
    - something completely different

    Do you see an urgent need for having this integrated directly into UI:
    - for editors – somewhere in Pages
    - for store admins – somewhere in Ecommerce apps
    - just for global administrator, so that he understands all possible issues that may arise related to system setup, workflow, …
    - no ui, just API

    Do you want some kind of auto-mapping of fields or complete control of the mapping?
    - full control, no logic based on same names
    - auto-mapping would do

  13. Can we get a Microsoft Edge specific body class instread of the 'Chrome' and 'Safari' classes?

    Hi Kentico,

    On https://docs.kentico.com/k10/developing-websites/designing-websites-using-css there is a table with the body classes that are generated based on the browser the client is viewing the project in.

    Can you explain why the Microsoft Edge browser and the Google Chrome browser bot get the Chrome and Safari body class. Why isn't a Microsoft Edge specific class generated and is this maybe something you can add in the near future? It would be great to have a 'Edge' class or something like that.

    Best regards,
    Sander Bras

  14. 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.

  16. Preview pages in CMSDesk as "not authenticated" or as a selected other role.

    With permissions, security or web part settings some pages can look different to different users. When logged in as Administrator, If you want to view a page and see what it looks like to people that haven't logged in, you can't unless you log out. Logging out logs you out of CMSDesk too, so you have to log back in again to make an amend.

    Also you can't easily confirm "edit", "delete", "add new" buttons are only showing to the right users because Global Administrator sees everything all the time.

    I would like to have view options in the preview…

  17. Add scrollWheel property to Google Maps (and more if possible)

    The current Google Maps webpart does its thing, but does not include all the possible options you set onto a google-map.
    Most of the options currently available are the options you'll generally use, but it is missing one. An that is a very important one imo, and that option is: scrollWheel.

    The scrollWheel option allow you to enable/disable zooming with the scrollwheel of your mouse. This is a boolean and defaults to true.
    Nowadays, it is more common to have map element on a page that is so big that it can span the entire page. If you, in such…

  20. Copied pages should initially be in edit state

    Copying a published document should not make the copied version publish, as you should be able to decide whether that copy should be published or not.

    At the moment that document becomes published by default, there should be a way for this not to be done automatically.

    It should go to a draft state, therefore unpublished if using workflow.
