  1. Delivery time per item (on stock/not on stock)

    If an item is not on stock, it is important for us to tell the customer until when it can be delivered near the "not on stock"/"on stock" message.
    In Business Central for example, each item has a 'Lead Time Calculation' and a 'Safety Lead Time'. Both values together plus the standard delivery time will represent the possible delivery time for items not on stock.

  2. Validate ZIP code and country

    The ZIP codes from a city should be validated by the ERP. The transport cost often depends on country but currently, SANA allows any ZIP code and country combination. So I have had B2C scenario's where customers selected the wrong country and payed less transport costs due to this.

    1) Option to set the field zip code in SANA admin as drop down instead of text for customer registration & profile fields.

    2) If this set like this in SANA, customers can only select ZIP codes based on the ZIP code table of the ERP. In this case the list…

    [SANA PRODUCT] We have this feedback on our radar. The challenge here is that we sell Sana globally, and each country has it’s own taxonomy / rules for zip codes and cities. There are multiple third-party companies that are specialized in validating this information. Some of our customers customize Sana and implement this validation there. To what extent can ZIP code validation be done on the ERP side in your experience?

  3. Automatically disable internal (on account) payment method when credit limits are validated with online payment

    Besides the online payment methods, it is also possible to create a payment method linked to the internal (on account) 'payment provider', to enable the customer to pay the order on account.

    When credit limits are validated and enabled with online payment in Sana admin, you only expect the customer to be able to choose the 'real' online payment methods when he/she exceeds the credit limit, as you want him/her to pay online. In the current solution he/she can still select the internal (on account) payment method.

    The internal (on account) payment method should be automatically hidden in this scenario.

  5. 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.

  6. Delivery costs per item

    o The shop offers no possibilities to add shipping cost per item. Often this is very important (big products or quantities)
    o We would very much need this feature. In the shop we can‘t offer a lot of products, because we have too high shipping costs and these costs cannot be shown in the shop. For this reason, we have written an extension on the Navision part. In Navision, we can use our enhancement to categorize freight costs and automatically calculate and add the correct postage per order using a function. Such functionality in Sana would be very beneficial and…

    In NAV you can configure attributes and these specifications are shown on the product detail page. However, when you configure an integer or decimal attributes in NAV, the unit of measure will not be shown in Sana. For example; lenght as attribute, value is 46 and unit of measure is cm. In this case Sana will only shown 46 on the product detail page and not 46 cm

  8. 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.

  9. ERP development guiding videos for newer ERP versions

    It is great if it possible to create ERP development guiding videos for newer ERP versions (MS Dynamics 365) as well. That way they can be shared with partners and partners will get a better understanding on how to do ERP code unit changes in new versions. Sometimes customization teams get questions from partners how to do changes in new versions once we send the existing set of videos (links).

  10. increase length of Entity Value Translations

    Currently, the Entity Value Translations are limited to 200 characters. This should be increased (400 at least)

  11. Order template sortable

    Allow customers to sort the items in the ordertemplate.
    Once created, you cannot change the order of items in the ordertemplate anymore at the moment.

    Some customers structure this list according to the layout of their warehouse. So if the order can made the same as the warehouse, the ordering can be done faster.

    Now the sorting is as items are added in shopping basket and the saved as order template. But if the sorting order changes, you have to do everything again from the beginning.

  12. Expand capabilities of Customer Assortment List

    Add support for creating expressions similar to the Data Validation rules for setting up the Customer Assortment list, or add Customer Segments to the Sales Type filter list. We have item restrictions that are not always able to be captured by the current capabilities but which are not possible to manage manually.

    [SANA PRODUCT] Thank you for the suggestion. We have recently added functionality (in Microsoft ERPs) to increase the possibilities of the item configuration, to include item fields and attributes as well as individual items and groups.

    We will look into the expression and customer field suggestions. Thanks for the feedback!

  13. 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).

  14. B2B VAT Check services fallback

    If VAT validation check is mandatory for B2B customer registration you only have the possibility to check EU VIES database. Due to regular maintenance of each member state, vat service if often not available for a short or longer period of time (france 3 weeks!). I propose for a fall-back logic in Sana that queries a secondary cached database of vat numbers from selected member states such as benelux/dach/france. I checked vatlayer, vatsense and vatapi but none of them offer this services.

  15. Turn the shop in Maintenance mode

    [SANA PRODUCT] We are in the last stage of our investigation a new toggle in Sana Admin so that the shop owner itself can put the shop in maintenance mode. This feature could also be used during the pre-live time. A specific message will appear on the front-end to inform the web store visitors (Sana text). If we have a final release date, we will update you.

  16. Content search functioanlity

    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.

  17. Button Empty basket

    When customers order on a tablet and are in the basket they will click by accident on the empty basket. And then the basket is cleared without a question. It would be better if the empty basket button is in another place (not above the next step button) and if there is a question “are you sure you want to delete all items?”

    [SANA PRODUCT] We have heard this feedback more often. That’s why we have hired a Product Owner UX recently, who will work on the entire redesign of our front-end and Sana Admin. This specific idea is indeed on his list. We will first continue with renewing our Front-end Framework (ReactJS). We expect to provide a much smoother user experience in the future and we will definitely tackle this topic.

  18. Recurring Payments for Subscriptions purchased thru the web shop

    Add functionality so that when a customer purchases a subscription through our web shop, they can “opt-in” to have us automatically charge their credit card for all renewals. Sana (or an add-on) would manage the credit card info and allow the user to choose card, update card, etc. Sana would pass a token to the ERP to maintain PCI.

  20. Different default unit for B2B/B2C (Pcs. vs. Box)

    As of right now, there's only one default unit of measure when buying through Sana.

    For B2C customers it only makes sense that they buy individual pieces. But for B2B costumers I would love to see them presented with the option of buying a full box as default, without having to change the settings for end consumer as well.

    This would make the platform more friendly towards being able to handle both B2B and B2C well.
