  1. The Kentico installer should do server environmental tests for compatabilty

    The Kentico installer should do basic OS, .NET, SQL Server, and IIS version testing and refuse (or at the very least, sternly warn) to complete an install of Kentico CMS.

    Recently, were were bitten by "dbo" and "db_owner" default owner differences between different versions of MS-SQL Server, which caused Kentico to fail in the most horrible ways over custom tables created by new Page Types. Much head scratching could have been avoided with a SQL Server test at install time.

  2. Dynamic Score in Scoring Engine

    It would be awesome to have variable scoring in the Scoring engine. It's flexible on when you can determine a score should be applied, but the amount is fixed.

    For example, say a person is filling out a retirement form, i want to award more points the older they are (maybe Contact.Age/10), so someone who is 20 gets 2 points, someone who is 80 gets 8 points.

  3. add a macro rule that allows you create a contact group based on a checkbox in a form. E.g. enter a competeiton and sign up for newsletter

    Currently the macro for contact groups that are conditional on answers on a form is string based.
    However, many forms have "sign up to newsletter/marketing" type checkboxes on them and it would be useful to have a default macro rule allowing a contact group based on this checkbox

  4. Responsive Images Attachment GUID Selector

    In K10 we started with responsive images. Kentico uses Attachment Variants to get this working.

    I would like to have a media selector, which returns the attachment GUID. Currently only the attachment URL is selected.
    But I need the GUID for almost every attachment helper method in the CMS code.

    It would be very cool to have an attachment selector, where the user could upload a new file as cms.file (content) or as document attachment (attachment) but not to the media library.
    The selector stores the GUID, so we could get all attachments (with variants) to create our responsive images…

  5. Wrap checkbox/radio input and label inside HTML element to control line-break issues

    Creating a Kentico form with a checkbox/radio button list with the "Repeat direction:" set to horizontal renders a series of checkbox/radio form controls and labels with no <br> tags. However, because there is no HTMl element that groups each control/label pair, the label will drop to a new line while the checkbox stays.

    By wrapping control/label pair inside an HTML element, such as span (even with no CSS class applied), gives us the ability to control this line-break issue with CSS.

    Current output example (stripping all id, values and for attributes):

    <span iclass="radio radio-list-horizontal">
    <input type="radio" value="Phone"><label>Phone</label>
    <input type="radio" value="Email"><label>Email</label> …

  6. Use the Service model for SKUAvailableItems

    I would like to see the SKUAvailableItems implemented using the Service model similar to the way Pricing and Calculations have been implemented in Kentico 11.

    Ideally the service would have the SKUID, ShippingAddress and UserID. This will allow lookups to get the SKUAvailableItems based on the users location or the shipping address and hence we would be able to check the quantity in the nearest Warehouse / Distribution point.

  8. Better page selection when using translation functionality

    The current single path selector in the translation app leaves much to be desired. You have to create two exports to do a section of the site (one for the parent page, and then one for its children).

    Adding the ability to select a node and its children, or specify multiple paths, or even choose multiple ad-hoc pages would make it less cumbersome.

  9. Make the Authorize.net payment gateway SAQ-A PCI Compliant

    The current Authorze.Net payment gateway imposes a substantial PCI compliance burden on organizations as customers must input credit card information on a Kentico page. Authorize.Net's new Accept Hosted payment method, where customers enter credit card data on an Authorize.Net page, enables developers to process credit card payments while maintaining SAQ-A level compliance, the simplest, least expense compliance method.

  11. Support custom properties in SearchContext.CurrentSearchResults

    When developing a custom index you currently are limited in what you can store in the index. Only the default search fields are supported, but you cannot add your own custom columns to the DataRow object in SearchContext.CurrentSearchResults.

    Adding custom columns to the DataRow would be a welcome feature that is in line with way Kentico wants to approach MVC. Sometimes a simple 'Pages' index is just not enough to display data and you want to avoid doing database queries to gather more information about the search results.

    Currently for custom indexes, the DataRow is being created hardcoded (see attached…

  12. Restrict currencies by country

    Can we have the ability to limit currencies by the customers country?

    For example a customer in the UK should be restricted to ordering in GBP whilst those in a different EU country can order in Euro's or US Dollars.

  13. Workflow Emails

    It would be helpful to be able to flag specific roles or users to receive workflow notifications rather than all users with the "Manage Workflow" permission.

    Use case - we have certain content that must be reviewed and approved by legal. By including specific roles / users in workflow steps, legal will only get notice of page to approve that are applicable to them.

  14. Using direct uploader form control in forms

    Enable usage of direct uploader form control in forms and not only page types - it can be usable to prevent lose the selected file when page has postback.

  15. generated code class inheritance

    Introduce class inheritance in generated page type model classes. Right now a page type can inherit from a base page type which is very handy. However when c# classes are generated (in code tab of the Page Types app) they both inherit from TreeNode which is very inconvenient as it denies access to base properties across all derived classes. The derived class should inherit from the base class instead of TreeNode.

  16. Persist widget based content personalization when copying the page, or creating a new cultured version

    Widget based content personalization should be persisted when you copy a page, or create a new culture version and opt to copy for an existing version, or when using the translate functionality. Currently we have to do a lot of manual work to recreate the content personalization across all the languages our site supports.

  17. When setting security on pages it would be better to be able to select multiple users/roles and change permissions for those selected.

    When setting security on pages it would be so much better to be able to select multiple users/roles and change permissions for those selected as it is in many other systems. This alone would make me reconsider a product.
    As we have lots of roles for security control on our intranet currently we have to set page permissions one by one, this is very time consuming and laborious.
    Thanks,
    Andy

  18. Add macro rule containing score

    Hi, there is no rule using contact score which we can use for personalization.

    For example you want to show some content only for users with score between 20 and 50, but there is no rule for that. So we try to work around that with Contact Statuses and Marketing automation because there is trigger based on Contact score.

    First we set up scoring (rules, etc.), then create 3 contact statuses - Cold lead, Warm lead, Hot lead
    For each contact status (lead phase) we create a marketing automation plan - Cold lead MA, Warm lead MA, Hot lead MA …

  20. Warning displayed when deleting media library item that is referenced somewhere

    When deleting an item in the media library it would be great for kentico to warn the use of where the image is used. So these references can be changed before deleting the item.
