  1. Extend Sana Admin search functionality to include Sana Help (and Sana University) articles

    Extend Sana Admin search functionality to include articles from Sana Help and Sana University in search suggestions regarding current Sana setup.

    For example when customer search for "Discount" top suggestions should be link(s) for "Discount" in Sana Admin and at the bottom should be suggestions with link(s) to Sana Help or Sana University with respect of current Sana setup.
    So, if customer has configured NAV ERP connection, customer do not need link(s) to Help Sana with AX, GP, SAP articles, but only NAV.

    This will dramatically improve Sana Admin user experience.

      [SANA PRODUCT] This is a very good idea. We are currently investigating an improved version of our Sana Help (we call this project Community 2.0). As part of this project, the entire Sana Help functionality will be improved. Step 2 will be a smart integration with our Sana Admin panel to improve our customer experience for daily operations. Thank you for the feedback!

    • Add your refrence no. as a search option in order history

      I would be nice if the field "your refrence no." is an extra search option in order history. The refrence no. can be filled making an order in the shop.

        [SANA PRODUCT] We are planning to redesign the My Account pages entirely including it’s search functionality there. We acknowledge that the search options could be improved here. We don’t have an ETA yet for these updates, but please follow roadmap.sana-commerce.com for the latest updates.

      • more options for "Availability depends on stock" function

        More options are needed for "Availability depends on stock" function. The option should be added to product sets, product lists and maybe idividual items.
        My Reasoning: I have a bunch of items lying around in my warehouse that I want to get rid of, therefore I would like to list them on the web store.
        The problem is that I also want to dropship a bunch of items that I don’t have in my warehouse.
        Current functionality will have me choose either or of the above. We need more flexibility

          • Scan Barcode to Basket

            many customers whishes a functionality where they can order items in a fast way by scanning the barcodes from the items in their warehouse or stores.

            a great feature would be a scanning addon for the webshop.

              [SANA PRODUCT} We are currently working on building a so-called “Front-end API”. For the technical people: we are implementing ReactJS as our new frontend framework. We expect to release this by the end of 2019. Having a frontend API is crucial for our first steps towards a Progressive Web App (PWA). With this PWA, we might also include a barcode scanner.

            • Integrate Item Cross Reference numbers with Sana

              Our industrial customers are buying everything from us through their own procurement systems. They have their own Item Numbers for all Items. We have linked the customers Item Numbers with ours Item Numers using Item Cross Reference Entries in NAV. It would be great if this numbers got synced with Sana so our customers can search for they own item numbers and find the items they are looking for. Item Cross Reference numbers should also be visible in the Customer Assortment lists, and customer should be able to tag Item with their own numbers for example in the Check Out…

                Add possibility to add a comment to each shopping basket line item. This is requested a lot and came up again during a training with partners.

                • Draft page content when session expires

                  In Sana 9.3 you introduced login session expiration, so if a Sana Admin is inactive for 20 minutes or more the session will be signed out. One big issue with this is that if you spend 20 minutes or more editing a web page and then save your content you are automatically signed out and the content is lost. This can not be intended and I will category it as a bug, so that you will not be signed out in this scenario.

                  Also, sometimes you are editing pages, then for some reason you will be inactive for 20 minutes…

                  • Add product video to product display page

                    As a shop owner, I would like to add product videos to my product display pages to get my point across a lot better than uploading a set of images. I believe this will help rev up engagement and subtly nudge prospects towards the next stage of the buying cycle.

                    Also, studies have shown product videos will increase Conversion rate, Conversion rate for people that have watched videos etc., Time on page, Events (clicks on extra images, plays of videos etc), Goals (based on events that track usage) and Revenue per visit.

                    • Account roles for account type "Contact"

                      We sell to B2B only and want to all the shop accounts to have be account type "contact". There are multiple reasons for that, for example statistics and other business processes.

                      But if we select "Contact" the possibility to set account role disappears, and this really limits the self service in Sana for our customers. It would be awesome to have account role for contacts as well!

                      • Unit of Measure of Attributes on product detail/product listpage

                        hello, At this moment we don't show the unit of measure of an attribute in either the product list page, So we show for example Depth 20 but not if it is CM,MM or Monkeys. Can we look at this? In NAV the there is a UOM field next to the actual value

                        • Use automatic payment journal posting with multiple payment add-on's

                          As a shop owner i would like to be able to use more than one payment add-on in the same webshop, and still be able to use automatic payment journal creation and posting in AX2012 and D365, so all payment mark and settlement will happen automatically in our ERP system.

                          Today the account settings for automatic payment journal creation can only be setup for the shop as a whole, which means all payment go on same account. But you need an account per payment provider (add-on) to be able to settle the bank.

                          A solution could be to be able…

                              Sana already have a search product functionality, but miss another part which dramatically will improve user experience - this is the content search.

                              So, Sana should have a content search functionality that customers may search over product pages, flexi pages, news and faq content.

                                [SANA PRODUCT] This is a very good idea. We are investigating how we can improve our search engine. Expanding the search functionality with covering content (flexi-pages and potentially also documents), but also a smarter engine are definitely part of this search engine 2.0. This investigation is currently ongoing.

                              • Import/Export functionality in Sana admin

                                Required import/export functionality in Sana admin for entire content (product pages, flexi pages, etc.) or parts of content (with option to select items to import and export).

                                This will help to move content between different environments or efficiently work with 3rd parties (for example with content translation agencies).

                                • multiple ERP for same shop based on country

                                  As a shop owner with customers and warehouses in many countries, it would be nice if you could assign a specific D365 company to a country in Sana, so that orders and customers from that country would be created in the country specific company in D365.

                                  Today we need to make a new shop for each company, and that multiplies maintenance.

                                  • Shipping cost (negative amount due to cheaper than what is included in price)

                                    As a shop owner i would like to offer our customers the option to choose a cheaper shipping type than our prefered shipping method.

                                    But the challenge is that our product price has base shipping included in the price so the customer do not leave the shop without ordering when he see the shipping costs under checkout.

                                    So by offering a cheaper shipping method than what is included in the price we need to be able to put in a negative amount on shipping methods in Sana, so that the customer would actually get a discount by choosing that shipping…

                                      For the maintenance of the customer assortment in NAV, it would be great if you can add an item mark in the assortment. Because the item category and product group are not specific enough and the item no. is to specific, it cost al lot of time if you maintain this on the item no. level. If you use an item mark the maintenance is more flexible.
                                      It would also be better if the assortment at the customer level can be setup based on the countries/ regions code.

                                      • End of out of stock message

                                        If a product is temporarly out of stock, it would nice for the user to have an option to be alerted when the item is available again.
                                        From the given product page, he would just have to click on a button "alert me when available" and to give his email address (or to sign in if he already has an account).
                                        When the product is back for sale, an email would be automagically sent to him.

                                        • Allow Separate Jobs for Update/Rebuild indexes for Customers & Products

                                          Provide functionality that allows separate schedules for updating the customer & product indexes vs fully rebuilding them. It would be nice to have the indexes update several times/day and then have a separately scheduled task to rebuild nightly.
