    • Site wide preview function that takes account of the date

      The existing preview function shows a page as it will appear when scheduled content goes live. As such it takes no real account of the system calendar.
      The idea therefore is to allow the user to alter a calendar offset, such that he or she can see the site as it will appear at some future date. The user would be able to role the calendar forwards to view scheduled changes as time elapses over a period in the future.
      The essential difference between this and the preview mode is that it would show the various phases, so for example…

      • auto-select the uploaded package

        When i update a new package to import, it would be nice if the new package will be selected automatically instead of having to selected it manually. (So many time i click « next » with the wrong package)

        • Allow to Reject and Approve Workflows without Modify Permissions

          We have a use case that requires a person to review edits and then accept or reject those edits as part of a workflow step. This doesn’t necessarily mean they should be able to modify the page. They should just have the read permission.

          For example, someone in the Legal and Compliance department should be able to review the page and decide whether it is complicit with the law. They are not part of the creative team that comes up with the design and copy. They provide guidance, but do not dictate exactly how the page should look. It is…

            • Live URL visible in Properties/URL

              During the changes with the field Path or pattern (Properties/URL) it would be nice to see LiveURL immediately in the same window. There is necessary to have another browser tab (with Properties/General) or anonymous window (with the page) open

              • Customize form builder default layout

                By default, Kentico generates a Label, Value, and Validation columns. Often this creates rather nasty validation issues when displayed. Would be great to have a way to customize the default layout the form generator creates to use a separate row for validation.

                • Support MySQL

                  With Microsoft removing BYOL support in Amazon AWS running in any other cloud platform (other than Azure) can be extremely costly due to Microsoft SQL licensing. Please Kentico break the MSSQL chains, there's no technical reason to be attached to it.

                        • Form list view - add timestamp for latest submission

                          When you look at the list of your forms the only information you are given is the Form Name and the number of Entries. As our forms rarely have an expiration, I would also like to see a timestamp for the last submission to each form (the column labelled "Form inserted" in the Recorded data view). This means at a glance I would be able to tell which forms had recent activity and which ones haven't.

                          In our office, the person receiving emailed form data is not usually me, but I need to refer to the forms regularly to see…

                          • Kentico MVC Content Only Pages URL Pattern Field Added into New Page Type Wizard

                            The New Page Type Wizard asks in Step 2 if you are creating Content Only Page Types. If you check this checkbox, nothing else changes in the Wizard for the remaining 5 steps and it is very easy to forget that the URL Pattern field of the Content Only Page Type should be filled in for MVC sites.

                            Suggestion: If the Content Only Page Type is checked in step 2, dynamically show a field that allows you to enter in the URL pattern right then and there (as an optional field).

                              • Use current domain instead of main domain in admin interface for apps such as "My Pages"

                                When using a domain alias for the admin interface, if the user is in an app such as "My Pages" when clicking to edit or preview a page, the system uses the default domain. This results in the user being redirected and asked to login, etc.

                                  Be able to mass upload a list of subscribers to a newsletter without having to put them in a contact group. For example, if I collect email opt-ins at an event I simply want to add them to my newsletter recipients. The only way to do that today is through a contact group. Once they are in a contact group I am not able to see individual opt in/out status.

                                  • Add functionality to use Shift to select multiple items in a list

                                    On a page like Staging, when I want to select 10 items out of a 20 item list, I can't click the first item and then use the Shift button on my keyboard and click the last item to select them all at once.

                                    Instead I have to click 10 times to individually select each one.

                                    You do have the option of clicking the box to select the entire list, but if I want to highlight one chunk out of a big list, I can't do it quickly or efficiently without clicking every single individual item.

                                    This is a very…

                                    • Thumbnail view for attachment fields containing image variants

                                      I would like to have a thumbnail view mode for attachment fields. We use this field type to store gallery images with concerned image versions. The customer likes to have a thumbnail view mode like it is available for folders containing multiple cms.file pages.

                                      In the "attachment" field type, only a list view is possible. The image is shown only on hover.

                                      In addition it would be nice to have an option to hide image variants because the content editors do not need this information.

                                      Thx, Elmar

                                      • Update Kentico's Obsolete GeoLocation Integration to Support GeoLite2

                                        Kentico currently uses MaxMind's legacy GeoLite City for their free implementation for geolocation. Kentico also currently supports GeoIP Organization as a paid form of geolocation for more accurate results. Both of these are no longer supported by MaxMind and are no longer being updated. On January 2, 2019, these will be removed from their site entirely. Kentico should consider updating their integration to MaxMind's newer GeoLite2 and GeoIP2 otherwise all of their users will have no way to update their geolocation database. Over time, these databases will become less and less accurate until the built in geolocation in Kentico is…

                                        • MVC on Free Edition

                                          As of version 10 in Kentico, if a Developer wants to host a website built using Kentico CMS using MVC, they need to purchase a license for it.

                                          This is a barrier for developers to enter and try out Kentico CMS with MVC. Since Kentico recently announced (at the Roadshows) that MVC would become the primary development model in the next version, it makes sense to provide access to this model for new developers in that version. However as it stands, they will be forced to use one of the other, non-preferred development models (Portal, ASPX or Mixed) to evaluate…

                                            Hello!

                                            Thanks for your complete explanation of the need for MVC in the Free edition.

                                            This seems to be a more common requirement now when we look into MVC further and we are evaluating this change right now.

                                            I will keep you updated about the progress as we come closer to the next beta.
