  1. Unique subscriber email address

    When adding different types of subscribers (contact, user, subscriber) it is possible to have a duplicated subscriber email address. Although sending duplicated email message is prevented, the subscriber list should contain unique email addresses.

    Hi,

    On behalf of the Kentico PM team, I want to say thank you for sharing your idea with us and the ever-growing Kentico community. A lot of exciting things have happened in Kentico in the past two years but we realize we haven’t kept on top of our UserVoice like we should have.

    That’s going to change – http://devnet.kentico.com/articles/kentico-uservoice-clean-up

    It’s time to clean up and kick-start the Kentico UserVoice to utilize it like it should have been all along. The idea doesn’t fit our product vision, I’ve had to make the tough decision to close this post.

    But we still need you! Continue sending your ideas to us, after all nobody knows what is needed more than the users.

  2. Comparison reports

    We have had requests from a few clients for additional reports within the EMS. One in particular that stands out is the Comparison Report. This would allow users within the EMS to compare one month to another month, e.g. see analytics for May against analytics for April. This is something that is used by several clients within Google Analytics.

  4. Kentico EMS - Do not insert Anonymous user and litter the contact management database

    The current online marketing method (Kentico EMS) of tracking user is less than ideal as it keeps inserting anonymous users to the database and thus makes it hard for data entry people to work. There's thousands of these being created as we have a very busy site.

    Solution: use a temporary table for these anonymous users or simply have an option not to display any anonymous user

    Hello,

    first of all, thank you for suggesting and voting for this idea. Despite the high number of votes, the idea doesn’t fit our current product vision and we do not plan to implement it in the near future. Therefore, I’ve had to make the tough decision to close this post.

  6. Paging / Steps within a Form

    It would be nice to have steps within a form. So you can fill in a few fields and then click on next and get the second half of the form.

  7. Personalize content in dynamic newsletters for each Contact

    Within dynamic newsletters (based on a web page) I would like to use personalization of the content for each Contact individually (per recipient). Now it is not easily possible as only Subscriber-related macros are resolved individually and rest of the macros in the dynamic newsletter are resolved once per e-mail. I would like to resolve Contact-related macros indivudually (per recipient) so that I can personalize content per recipient (Contact).

    Hello!

    Due to issues with Dynamic (page-based) newsletters, we have created the new Email builder with dynamic widgets in mind. Therefore widgets can be written so that they obtain the content in the time of sending (e.g. latest news).

    Also, thanks to our internal performance test, we suggest limiting personalization to personas rather than complex conditions or contact groups.

    I’ll be glad if your try out the new Email builder and let me know how your personalization works with it!

    http://insider.kentico.net/Forms/Kentico-Insider-Beta-2-registration?utm_campaign=beta2&utm_source=uservoice&utm_medium=email&utm_content=dynamicpersonalization_link

    Thanks for your thoughts!

  8. contact staging

    Enable staging of all OM data including Contacts, Activities, Score Leads ...
    Staging is required because our security settings prevent editors to access live site data.

  9. Enable Reverse Proxy scenarios for Targeting and Analytics

    Enable a setting to be able to change where the Client IP Address is obtained. In a reverse proxy setting, the client IP address is the address of the proxy, not the actual clients ip address. This causes loss of Geolocation-driven functionality and a reduction in the usefulness of certain Web Analytics. An alternative location for the client IP address would be the first IP address within the "X-Forwarded-For" header field.

    I’m going to close this request. There is a workaround for this. If workaround is not viable solution, please provide more details in comments.

  10. Track links with macro parameters

    Newsletter link statistics doesn't work with links which contain macro parameters (e.g.: http://www.mywebsite.com/?id={% RecipientID(Email); %}

  11. The advanced workflow has so much capability; it should be expanded to work for more than just documents, for example linking between forms

    The advanced workflow has so much capability; it should be expanded to work for more than just documents, for example linking between online forms. It’s almost there, if it did not require the Edit, Publish, and Archive steps it would probably work because then I could just program some custom shapes and invoke it manually.

  12. Use AJAX on output cached pages to pull in fresh content for Banner Rotator

    There should be an option that if a page is going to be output cached and it contains a Banner Rotator, the page should use ajax to pull in a fresh banner from the banner management system.

  15. Add a tickbox to the image and link creation for absolute reference

    Email newsletters links and images do not work properly if you don't provide an absolute reference (e.g. "http://www" rather than just "/...." )

    Can you provide a tickbox so that links and images added to pages or newsletters contain the absolute reference to the location on the site.

  16. add a "Documents' tab to bizforms

    Hello,

    after re-evaluation of this suggestion we decided to currently not implement this functionality in v10 because it doesn’t fit our product vision and there hasn’t been any new supporters of this idea in the past 12 months. Therefore, I am closing this suggestion.

    If you have any questions or you want to discuss the idea, please, feel free to send me an email.

  17. Mass block email addresses

    From very large mailings, it's possible to have thousands of incorrect emails, it would be handy to be able to update these from a spreadhseet, either mass-blocking them or mass-updating them.

  18. A/B and MVT variant weight

    I'd like to define the weight that should be used for choosing between variants in A/B and MVT tests. For example:
    v1 25%
    v2 25%
    v3 50%

    We are planning to include some improvements in A/B & MVT in v8. One of those improvements is “included traffic in a test”. However, I don’t beleive you want to manually define individual traffic for each variant of a test. This should be set either for all variants of the test or it should be automatically balanced by the test engine.

  19. Form: field inheritance

    I need to add some hidden tracking fields for every form (source url, user account, etc).
    It would be great if I can define a basic form from which the others can inherit fields.

  20. Throttle Newsletter Queue to Certain Domains

    AS you are doing some work for the newsletter module in V6, it would be really handy if you could throttle the emails being sent to certain domains, like yahoo.com and gmail.com as they really dont like being hit with 1000's of emails at the same time,

    Hello,

    currently we’re trying to achieve the opposite – increase the throughput. Today sending large amount of emails to a particular domain shouldn’t be a problem.

    If you disagree with me, or you have other suggestions or questions, please, do not hesitate to contact me.
