  1. 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.

  2. Add support for HTML5 input types

    Please add support for html5 input types such as:

    type=datetime, email, number, tel, url, etc
    

    Currently, the kentico textboxes only support single-line, multi-line and password. Trying to create form controls that utilize any of the other textmode types (such as phone, email, number, datetime, url etc, etc) does not work.

    This will improve UX, particularly when filling out forms on mobile platforms, and is requested more and more often.

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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

  8. 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?

  9. Easily add Synonyms for the search engine

    Easily being able to add Synonyms for the search engine.

    Adding custom Synonyms could make a big difference to the power of the search engine.

  10. 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">

  11. 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.

  12. User subscription on reports should not be synced with staging module

    A report is an object that sometimes requires updates. These updates are usually done on a staging server and then synchronized into production.

    User subscriptions to reports are usually done on the production server.

    However, if you synchronize a report from staging to production, you also sync all subscribed users.

    This makes it in fact impossible to have a) reports synced or b) users subscribe on the production platform.

    As in the newsletters subscriptions and reports should be synced seperatly.

  13. All API Providers should support ObjectQuery

    All API Providers should support ObjectQuery for method GetObjectNames. For example CMS.Messaging.MessageInfoProvider.GetMessages method doesn't resturn ObjectQuery and have only 4 predefined overloads.

  15. Support for Accelerated Mobile Pages (aka amp html)

    https://www.ampproject.org/

    Faster web pages means happier users/customers/stakeholders.

    This relatively new open source project has a lot of industry support, and appears to be a framework for improving performance of web pages (particularly for mobile).

    Is this something Kentico are looking to support?

  16. Improve CKEditor Plugin Support

    To add a custom plugin to the CKEditor you either have to beat up config.js (which will cause issues on hot-fix / update) or clone the editor web parts to add your plugin on initialization. Kentico could easily expose this setting (the plugin names) into a site setting and use that in their editor controls. This would prevent people from having to customize the implementation just to add a plugin to CKEditor.

  17. Stop creating the 'Andy' user in new kentico installs.

    The Andy user serves no purpose other than adding another site setup/launch checklist item to delete the user. Having a default user created with editor pivledges and no password in every kenticO is a huge issue.

    I say remove security vulnerability andy!

  19. The "Dashboard" screen should be smarter. It should show the apps which user usually work with

    For example, I usually work with "Custom Table" application. But it doesn't appear on my dashboard automatically.

  20. Option to change CMS date format

    Hi, it would be great if there was a global setting to change the date format on the actual CMS interface - at the moment we are stuck with US format for date pickers, uni grids etc. Would like to be able to change it to yyyy/MM/dd or dd-MMM-yyyy
