  1. Automatically generate MVC View/Controller/Repository boilerplate

    Currently, Kentico will allow automatic generation of the Model based on page types.
    However, in order to match Kentico's existing structure, you also have to add a View, a Controller, and an Interface and implementation class for the Repository (The latter not strictly necessary, but it is if you want to match Kentico's internal classes' structure.)
    Obviously the View and Controller will need to be customized, but a lot of it (the files themselves, the class definitions and using statements, the constructors for the Controller, etc) are going to be boilerplate.
    Ideally, this would be via something like a zip…

  2. Allow all country versions to be updated at once

    For instance, be able to change a picture or page title across all country versions at once, rather than having to do it manually on each country version

  3. Implement support for SAML 2.0

    Officially Kentico only supports SAML 1.0/1.1. Needs to also support SAML 2.0.

  4. eDM Send page

    It would be great if on the Send page there is an at-a-glance table showing all the pertinent information needed before hitting Send. It should show the main information required for sending (eg filename, subject line, sender, sender address, reply to address, contact groups and numbers, opt-out groups etc. This isn’t provided in Kentico, so I need to go through different tabs and pages to double-check information (eg an eDM was sent this week with an incorrect subject line).

    The ‘make sure’ list in Kentico Send page is more of a checklist than information.

    The file attached provides an example…

  5. Select language when adding a link to our newsletter.

    Fix this situation

    Description:
    Situation: a multi-language website (FR - EN - NL) and communication that is sent in both French and Dutch through the Kentico EMS.

    In our pages application we mostly set our culture to NL (default).
    When turning to the email marketing application and setting up a new email campaign in French, I come across this inconvenience: when I try to insert a link to one of our pages, I see only the pages in Dutch. Quit inconvenient while completing a French email.

    The only way I can solve this write now is by opening the pages…

  6. Copy product document together with SKU data and product option categories cross multiple sites

    I would like to copy a product document together with it's connected SKU data and all applied product categories across multiple sites.

    Currently this is not possible (maybe it is now in 12)...

    In Kentico 11 I can only copy the product. The SKU data is missing after coping the document. This requires to edit almost anything in the new document again - which makes it senseless to copy...

  7. Don't set height via style in image editor

    When resizing an image in the image editor set the height and width properties as attributes not with the style tag. when you set the height and width it makes it difficult to make the image resize automatically with the browser.

  8. Storing Cache Data in Redis instead of Server Memory

    It would be nice if you could have the cache stored in Redis cache. IT would help prevent the server memory from getting large similar to file storage. Also, if using a Web Farm it would provide a way to store the cache in a centralized location.

  9. email priority

    Kentico adds to email from email marketing this properties:
    X-Priority: 5
    Priority: non-urgent
    Importance: low

    But I can not influence it. Please, add settings for it.

  10. attributes

    Form fields could use a flexible "additional attributes" field, which would allow users to add whatever attributes they'd like. Following a syntax like the style attribute, a user could add this, for example: "placeholder:Email Address;", and then your server-side code could split and parse the name/value pair into the input field.

  11. URLs in Newsletter

    DESCRIPTION:

    Settings / URLs and SEO / Redirect invalid case URLs to their correct versions

    There is an option "Redirect all requests to lower case URLs"

    This is the best setting for SEO and it is fine until now.

    PROBLEM is with newsletters. It would be fine to create an exception for them. E.g. checkbox DO NOT USE THIS RULE IN NEWSLETTERS

    If you put the link (e.g. Google Sheet, that uses lower and upper cases) into newsletter´s body, all characters in the link are redirect to lower case.

    All is fine in Draft, but if you send it to…

  13. Implementation of Swagger UI in REST API to approach the need for documentation and easier integration

    I would love to see swagger being implemented in the REST API, as it is a quick and effective way of documenting the REST API and make it easier to test the calls with less trial and error on the user side.

    Its also enables clients to consume the rest api easier and integrate it with Visual Studio 2017 as it has a feature to add a "Rest API Client" which builds all the required models and classes for the calls and also builds a service to easily make the calls from any .net project.

    Please look below at the…

  14. Ability to seperate email based on type to different SMTP servers

    Sending all mail generated from Kentico through the same (set of) SMTP server(s) is a bad idea. Why? If marketing emails result in service being throttled by the SMTP service (it happens), it also slows down delivery of transactional email.

    Perhaps this could be set up to send to different sub-domains e.g. mktg.example.com & store.example.com.

    Or email templates have a tag that is used for determining which service they get forward to.

    Either way, this can help to seperate not only issues when they arise, but also reporting etc.

    If Kentico is serious about email marketing, I think this is…

  15. 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.

  16. Add WebP support to the ImageHelper class

    When creating image variants, it would be great if we could also convert images to WebP.

    While WebP isn't universally supported, the <picture> tag could be used to offer it as an option to browsers that do support it, reducing page load.

  17. Search the entire Media Library and all sub-folders

    Is there a way to do a Global search in Media Library?
    I.e. when at the root folder, do a search that will find all the images in all subfolders?
    e.g. If I want to find all the "achill" images that are in the Media Library and I go to the root folder and search for "achill" -> no images are found
    I need to search each folder individually, so if I go to the sub-folder and search for "achill" => I find all the "achill" images in the folder
    Searching the entire Media Library and all subfolders

  19. HTML editable text input window in the form tab should be resizeable and responsive

    There is not the possibility to make the input field for the HTML editable text resizeable. It looks out-of-date on the new screens with high resolution.

  20. Allow import/export of XLIFF translation files for custom resource strings in the Localization app

    Kentico allows you to define custom, translatable resource strings via the Localization application, under the Resource strings tab.

    However, it doesn't look like there's a built-in method to export those resource strings to XLIFF file(s) for translation to other cultures.

    It would be beneficial to have the ability to send XLIFF files to a translation company to translate into a new culture, and import the updated XLIFF files directly into the site, as we can currently do with pages.
