  1. 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).

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • Product comparison

          More platform are using "Product comparison", for example "sitecore". They are using it as a tool for guiding customers and helping customers choose the product that best fits their needs. In Sana the comparison can be made on the specifications and can be used as part of an omnichannel strategy.

            • 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.

                • Extend functionality ZIP code

                  You can configure in NAV when a customer filled in a incorrect ZIP code during online customer registration, that a error will be shown on the webshop

                  It would be nice when a customer fills in his ZIP code and housnumber, that automatically the street and place will be filled in.

                  • Managing several contact forms

                    Currently SANA does provide only one contact form and its URL is preset. It would be nice to be able to manage several contact forms whereas people want to contact your customer service or a given service within the company. You could also add/remove fields to get more information about the sender before contacting him back and route the message to a different recipient.
                    You don't have either an history of the message transmitted, in order to check the relevance of your contact form.

                    • building webshop navigation tree from path field in erp system.

                      As far as I understand the design, it appears that you have to create a topic filter which includes then the ERP fields and settings that act as a filter for that topic in the webshop. If we add an ERP field that contains the path (like /vendor/category/subcat/size) for each item, then sana can build an dependency tree in the database from all these paths and show the possible values of each level of the webshop (i.e show all vendors, then shop all category values of a specific vendor etc etc) Using this method the webshop tree is controlled by…

                        • Use a front-end framework

                          Using a third-party modular front-end framework (e.g. http://foundation.zurb.com/) would provide design pack developers with a well documented and easily expandable system. The current system's functionality is restricted to the default design pack's use case. It's not modular; overwriting store.css in a custom design pack basically overwrites all styles; it's not possible to overwrite just a single component. It's badly structured; styles are spread over store.css and z-mobile.css. It's confusing; z-mobile.css contains styles for mobile but also desktop and tablet (this was fixed in Sana v9.2.0 though). Using a third-party framework would fix all this. These are generally well documented,…

                          • Show prices and estimated shipping cost based on user location

                            Currently the user needs to set an address in the checkout for the webstore to display prices for this location (i.e. including or excluding taxes). It would be nice to have a location selection in the webstore similar to the language selection. Additionally there could be an option where a new visitor is presented with a specific landing page to select a country to enforce the correct prices to be displayed. This could be automated based on the user's IP address (e.g. using the free GeoLite database: http://dev.maxmind.com/geoip/geoip2/geolite2/). Default languages could be set for each country so that a…

                              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.

                                    I get the request very frequently to be able to download the entire catalogue or parts of it.
                                    Many distributors and manufacturers want customer to be able to use their images, product descriptions and manuals etc in their own eCommerce shop or internal file reposotory and therefore are requesting that the customer can select a part of the catalogue and download all product information with a single click. Alternatively I also had the request to download all images for the SKU's purchased in a single order.
                                    I am curious to find out of other people would find this useful or…

                                      • Extent functionality blanket sales order

                                        In the standard functionality only one sales agreement can be applied to a shopping cart. If you want to use several sales agreements, you will need to create multiple orders.

                                        We have a lot of customers which are using multiple blanket sales orders for 1 item, so when you will create a sales order there is the possibility to use several blanket order in the specific order. So you will not create multiple order.

                                        When you will select several blanket sales order we have configured in NAV that the first blanket sales order what will pop up, is the oldest…

                                          the business case would be the following. Many times our customers uses our shop in meetings with their customers. But they don't want, that the end customer see their purch prices. so it would be usefull, if the sana shop user can configure some charges which would be added to the prices (f.e. individuall charges for individual items or item categorys)

                                          another cool feature would be if the shop user could also configure the look and feel of the shop…
