  1. 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?

  2. 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).

  3. Allow users to update temporary license keys without have to delete and add

    Allow users to update temporary license keys to full license without have to delete the old and then add the new license. The goal would be achieve zero downtime when the switch is required.

  4. Detect bounced mails by REST service

    We are using SMTP services from SPARKPOST to send our marketing emails in Kentico. The bounced emails are stored in SPARKPOST and there is no POP account to receive this emails. We also use several email address for sending the emails and some of them are just forward accounts, so there is no proper way to get the bounced emails as Kentico is setup.

    Please consider the possibility to monitor emails using REST. SPARKPOST as many other email SMTP solutions offer in their API the possibility to get the list of bounced emails, in this way will be easy for…

  6. Preview pages in CMSDesk as "not authenticated" or as a selected other role.

    With permissions, security or web part settings some pages can look different to different users. When logged in as Administrator, If you want to view a page and see what it looks like to people that haven't logged in, you can't unless you log out. Logging out logs you out of CMSDesk too, so you have to log back in again to make an amend.

    Also you can't easily confirm "edit", "delete", "add new" buttons are only showing to the right users because Global Administrator sees everything all the time.

    I would like to have view options in the preview…

  7. Use dependency injection (DI) in the API/code to allow for better testability.

    It is difficult to test customized code, especially the e-commerce providers, without DI because it requires the testing code to be running the entire site with full database state. It is only possible to test in isolation by creating lots of mocks and stubs which reverse engineering the necessary calls based on what is being tested.

  8. Add scrollWheel property to Google Maps (and more if possible)

    The current Google Maps webpart does its thing, but does not include all the possible options you set onto a google-map.
    Most of the options currently available are the options you'll generally use, but it is missing one. An that is a very important one imo, and that option is: scrollWheel.

    The scrollWheel option allow you to enable/disable zooming with the scrollwheel of your mouse. This is a boolean and defaults to true.
    Nowadays, it is more common to have map element on a page that is so big that it can span the entire page. If you, in such…

  9. Order notifications recipients by order status and general structure.

    Currently Kentico only has a single option to send order status notifications which sends the notifications to both store admins and customers.

    I'd like to see this split so that customers do not necessarily need to get notifications for internal changes.

    Whilst making this change I would also like to see the ability to set recipients based on Order Status, such that if an Order is in 'Payment failed' a notification can be sent to accounts, whilst an order that is 'Payment Accepted' can go to order fulfilment. This could be implemented as a Recipients field in the order status…

  10. Better contact adding for static contact groups

    At the moment when you set up a static contact group there is no way to search for contacts to add to it. This makes the feature useless except for sites with a very small number of contacts or by using code to manage them. It would make sense to me to do away with the distinction between dynamic and static contact groups and have only one type made up from a rules based search with an option to determine how often the search is rerun.

  11. Schedule automatic resend of email campaign to 'unopened' recipients

    Everyone is busy and don't always read your emails. Resending a campaign only to subscribers/recipients that have not opened the original email is quite effective. The most convenient is to have the option to schedule a resend to unopened at the time of sending the original email.

  12. allow admin to delete more than 1 record at a time when viewing a custom table

  14. Add the ability for CSS stylesheets and Page templates to be global instead of site-specific.

    I've run into an issue where a client may want to create numerous sites on the same Kentico installation, and want all sites to have access to common CSS and Page templates. I think this currently requires updating each CSS stylesheet and Page template's list of sites that has access to it.

    It would be nice if there was an option to make a CSS stylesheet or Page template "global", so that individual sites wouldn't need to be assigned to them.

  15. Copied pages should initially be in edit state

    Copying a published document should not make the copied version publish, as you should be able to decide whether that copy should be published or not.

    At the moment that document becomes published by default, there should be a way for this not to be done automatically.

    It should go to a draft state, therefore unpublished if using workflow.

  16. JavaScript Source Map

    When you minify a JavaScript file, you can generate a "Source Map", which allows browsers' dev tools to display and debug against the unminified symbols, even though the actual running code is using the minified version.
    I propose that when Kentico creates a minified GetResource object, it should also generate this map and include it.

  17. Adding feature to filter when contact group assigned

    When contact assigned to group in contact group, there are no field in database to identified when this contact assigned to the group. As a result, we do not know when contact assigned and as a result reporting to show how many contact assigned to group by this month, week, day not able to generate.

  18. Make Marketing Automation multi-tenancy friendly

    I understand not many EMS instances will be multi-tenancy but Kentico touts to have a multi-tenancy platform but none of the marketing automation workflows support multi-tenancy. For instance if I have the Dancing Goat site and the Corporate Site running on the same instance, I can see all the marketing automation workflows in both instances. This should not be the case. You can leave the workflow as a global workflow but create a linking table or scope with that site's ID in it for workflows of type "automation".

  19. Proper AWS and S3 support

    For example you cannot control what gets mapped to S3 (like you can with Azure). 2nd it clearly does not page the contents of the bucket when listing the media content which causes it to crash after around 100 items in the folder.

  20. Display Repeater webpart where condition errors in event log in Kentico CMS 10

    Hi Team,

    When we are using wrong statement in Repeater where condition then it should be display "Select statement" with detail query in event log. It was in Kentico CMS 9 and Kentico CMS 8 as well but not available in Kentico CMS 10.
