      thank you for this idea.
      Our stock count is displayed on live site. Is it a common practice to still show stock even though the goods may be booked for other customers?

        Hello,

        I think you’re trying to achieve a cooperation process. However, staging of version history is not a good solution for that.

        Let’s say the staging will support version history changes, but after a successful staging, the new version history will overwrite the old versions as there’s no merge.

        We are solving this with our CI functionality. Which may be difficult for non-technical users, however, there are User-Friendly merge/repository tools that may be useful in this case.

        Please let me know what you think about this.

        Kind Regards

          Thank you, and how do you solve this issue currently? With a customization?

            Hello,

            We are currently in the middle of implementing several customization points. One of those is a “Tax Service” which should be used as a bridge between tax calculation in Kentico and external system or custom logic.

            This Tax service is a single point of customization, so it should be easy to extend with a custom logic like taxing per ZIP.

            It’s a code block with an input and output where the input is:
            - SKU
            - Quantity
            - Price
            - Customer
            - Currency
            - Date
            - Shipping address
            - Billing address
            and output:
            - calculated tax

            With this new Tax Service should be easy to implement this functionality as customization as the ZIP is available in the address object.

            What do you think about it? I’m sorry if it’s too technical, old habits.

            thank you

              Hello rik

              The shipping charge (or shipping cost) functionality is still in Kentico. Could you please explain what exactly was removed in Kentico 10?

              I've asked the question in the previous comment to make sure I understand the need correctly. Currently, we have a way how we display shipping charges to the customers and how administrator manages them. So the question is if we could use this approach also for the payment charges.

              Now I understand that payment charge is probably always in percentages and it doesn't depend on weight, but the rest may be similar to the shipping charge.

              thank you

              Hello

              I believe you are very familiar with the way how shipping charges are displayed and calculated. Is the payment fee similar to this shipping charge, or it behaves or shows differently?

              thank you

                  Hello

                  How do you currently implement recurring donations or membership renewal?

                  Is there a common scenario for the membership renewal? e.g. Purchaser will buy a membership/donate, and after a year an email will be sent to this Purchaser with new billing info and payment link or confirmation that a recurring payment was made?

                    Hello

                    We plan to find a better way how to distribute sample data in the next version. sample sites, web part containers and other sample related objects are the first step.

                    However, what do you think about the amount of Webparts, form controls or email templates in the clean installation of Kentico?

                      Hi all,

                      The new documentation pages about Writing automated tests is public: https://docs.kentico.com/display/K9/Writing+automated+tests

                      Maybe you will find there something you didn't know. Right now we are working on the v10 version with some of the new options and enhancements.

                      Any feedback will be appreciated.

                      Hi,

                      we are currently working on improvements in Tests area. I will keep this idea updated.

                      Regards,

                      Hi,

                      we are currently working on improvements in Tests area. I will keep the idea updated. However i am not a fan of ideas that are basically a very specific technical solutions.

                      I believe the problem is much better explained here http://ideas.kentico.com/forums/239189-kentico-product-ideas/suggestions/392278-use-dependency-injection-di-in-the-api-code-to-a

                      Would you mind if I merge this issue into the other one?

                        Hi

                        Beside of the filter by a vendor and full-text search option, are there other improvements you have in mind?

                          Hi,

                          What would you say if:
                          1. Mass delete action for the licenses will be implemented.
                          2. Bulk import action will be implemented, however only for the empty license list to ensure there will be no collisions and the user will be certain what licenses were inserted (all of them, not an unknown subset due to conflicts).

                          Will this be a fine solution for you?

                          thank you

                          Hi Oleg,

                          Thank you for your patience.

                          There is a similar idea:
                          http://ideas.kentico.com/forums/239189-kentico-product-ideas/suggestions/4504801-importing-of-licence-file

                          What do you think about a feature that will delete currently used licenses and add a new ones that you can export on the client portal? Is this sufficient or there is a need to merge currently used licenses with the new ones?

                          Thank you

                          Hi,

                          I am thinking about it and I have a few questions:

                          Do you delete all or some of the existing licenses before you are adding new one? I am wondering if there should be a feature to delete all currently used licenses and add brand new set exported from client portal, or there is a need to (somehow) merge existing licenses with the new ones.

                          Please, share your thoughts with me.

                          Hi,

                          I am wondering if current behavior (delete old licence and add new one) is just annoying or do you have some issues with it?

                          How often do you update/upgrade licence, please?

                          Thank you
                          Michal Kadak

                            Hello,

                            Thank you for the replays. You are perfectly right, this is the place to discuss features and needs. I probably expressed myself badly. What i need to do is put the pieces together and find the optimal solution. Continuous integration was not build for editors, but it can be in the future version, it's a plausible solution. That's the reason i bring it up.

                            Anyway, how are you dealing with the rollbacks currently? Are you using a database backup or other tool?

                            What is the common scenario when your editor needs to perform a rollback? I am trying to figure out whether you need to rollback more "stage deployments" or just the currently performed one.

                            Thank you a lot

                            Hi,

                            Kentico 9 has introduced a new functionality called Continuous Integration. Please see: https://docs.kentico.com/display/K9/Setting+up+continuous+integration

                            This functionality (in tandem with your favorite version control system) will allow you to rollback the changes into the certain point of time and much more.

                            I believe it's (will be) a right solution for your troubles. What do you think about it?

                              Hi,

                              Yes, you are right. Banned IP app will limit also the public areas, so it's not useful in this use case. My mistake.

                              And the reason for this feature is to enhance the security. Am I right?
                              What are the main issues with configuring it via IIS?

                              Thank you

                              Hi,

                              Could you please share with me the scenario when you need to set a range of IP addresses which are permitted to access Kentico admin interface?

                              Currently you can use the banned IP application by creating a global BAN rule for every IP and site rule that will allow specific IPs using "Allow IP address for this site if the IP address is banned globally" option. Please see https://docs.kentico.com/display/K9/Banning+IP+addresses

                              Isn't this feature sufficient?

                              Thank you

                                Hi,

                                As you know the JavaScript files application only provides a basic file editing interface. Have you tried a custom file system synchronization process to copy *.js files?

                                Thank you

                                Regards,

                                Michal Kadak

                                  Hi,

                                  We are currently considering the responsive design for the most used parts of administration.

                                  We have to start somewhere and step by step eventually cover the most parts. According to the comments the "popular" apps are Custom tables, Forms, Pages, Orders and Store reports. Do you agree?

                                  However, Pages app is a little bit tricky. What do the editors (or others) need to do within pages app when they are on a mobile/tablet? I can't imagine tweaking the page design on a phone, so maybe read only?

                                  Thank you

                                  Regards,

                                  Michal Kadak

                                    Hi, Thank you very much for this idea.

                                    I am wondering if you want to use the same email header and footer for all email templates for all pages you have on one Kentico instance. Is that right?

                                    Regards,

                                      Hi, Thank you very much for this idea.

                                      Code/API tweaks like this have to be done with caution and piece by piece. I am wondering what concrete scenarios required the async API in some way. Could you be so kind as to describe what did you implement with a need of async API?

                                      Maybe an async version of ObjectQuery could be just enough.

                                      Thank you

                                      Regards,

                                        Hi,

                                        this idea is here for some time, therefore i am wondering if it's still relevant. What CSS preprocessors do you use currently? What other languages do you use in Kentico editors? Please be so kind and leave me a comment.

                                        Regards,
