  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. search input search term

    Smart Search webpart should populate with the search term, if present. This makes it easily recognized that a search was performed, and if there was a typo, the user would see it within the webpart. This has become a standard in searches.

  3. Integrate Newsletter subscription with Biz Forms

    It would be great if we could integrate into a Biz Form a check box that a user checks to indicate that they want to receive the site newsletter.

    This means a user filling in a for can subscribe in the one place instead of then having to go and subscribe to the Newsletter separately.

    Thanks
    James

    Hello!

    In order to inspect this suggestion further, could you share few comments?

    What is the most common scenario? A simple check box with a predefined specific newsletter?

    Should the subscription be avilable only after the complete form is filled and sent?

    What do you think of the currently available solution – creating a Marketing Automation process, which is triggered by a form submission, can check if a specific checkbox is checked and based on this subscribes the contact to a newsletter?

    Thanks!

  4. 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,…

  5. 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.

  6. 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. Add a "File Manager" feature to enable non-developers to easily swap out files in the root folder like robots.txt.

    Add a "File Manager" feature to enable non-developers to easily swap out files in the root folder like robots.txt, Google and Bing authorization files, etc.

  8. 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. Forms - Ability to use a form without the page context

    I would like to be able to use the forms sometimes without the page context. Also a direct preview (URL) would be appreciated.

  10. Campaigns - URL shortener after creating a URL with the URL builder

    Give the ability to also immediately shorten a URL after the creation of it via the URL builder in Campaigns. I now use Bitly but then need to copy-paste the URL first.

  11. Campaigns - ability to also select bookmarks when adding an existing page

    When using longer pages with bookmarks to focus on certain paragraphs, you want to be able to also add these as page content when selecting a page in Campaigns. Now only possible to select pages and content types.

  12. 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

  14. 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.

  15. Social Media Icons at top of website

    It would be nice to have our social media icons at the top of the site. Even if the icons are smaller than they currently are. I think it is important to have these links available and visible for visitors even if they do not scroll through the site. All of our competitors have this feature and I would like to see it added to our templates.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  19. Allow use of different SMTP servers for Marketing and Transactional e-mails.

    Hello, every e-mail marketing expert I asked, told me that it is necessary to send Marketing and Transactional e-mails using different infrastructure. That is why I was very surprissed to find out, that Kentico does not allow to specify which SMTP servers it shoud use for Transactional and which for Marketing e-mails.
    Is there a chance to make it available please?

  20. Better e-commerce event hooks

    Currently there are only the order paid and created hooks available, and you can't use the order info events because they are triggered multiple times for each actual order update.

    Please as event hooks at the beginning and end of the shopping cart info provider set order (which only runs once) and also the set cart so we can more easily leverage these events across multiple plugins (since you can only create 1 custom info provider).
