  1. 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.

    • 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).

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • Captcha

            The current contact form is easy to be misused to send spam. It would be nice to have some form of captcha, for example Google's reCaptcha, to prevent this from happening.

            • 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.

                • Spam proof email address

                  Most of the websites have in the backend a possibility to scramble mailaddresses. So spam robots can't find them in site source (mailto:). Sana websites don't have this functionality. Would be nice if it has. Best is a add-on so the user can decide wether to use it or not.

                  • Scheduled Task to import BP accounts

                    When creating a BP in ERP, we have to manually create a shop account, duplicating effort and increasing probability of errors. We can automatically create a CSV and upload it to the site with FTP but still have to manually login and import the CSV. A Scheduled task would allow this entire process to be automatic.

                      • Change the order of products in the shopping cart

                        When a customer adds products to his basket, the order in which the products are shown in the basket are not making sence. The product that is choosen last, is showed at the top op the basket and the item first selected is on the bottom.

                        It's more logical that you will get an overwiew of what you selected from 1 to ... So the item you selected first, will be on the first position in te basket. Our B2B customers complained about this functionality and so we made some customization.

                        When we compare this to all kind of diferend…

                        • Breadcrumb for flexi-pages

                          SANA does provide breadcrumb for catalog pages, however, even if you do structure your flexi-pages URL with category/subcategory/page, there is no option to add a breadcrumb to the created flexi-pages which prevents a proper content discovery by the user (and doing this by hand is long and subject to mistakes, not to mention the update needed if you're moving/adding new section as time goes on).

                          • Improve Mailchimp add-on

                            Currently the way the Mailchimp add-on is made doesn't enable a proper use of automation capabilities in Mailchimp.
                            In order to use Mailchimp ecommerce automation, SANA should use the ecommerce API provided.
                            That would enable any SANA website to automatically :
                            - Notify best customers with rewards
                            - Thank 1st time customers
                            - Win back customers that are not coming back
                            - Easily retarget abandoned carts
                            Additionally, it should be able to handle several customer segments when syncing, so you have the same customer segments in SANA and in MailChimp.

                                As a customer, I want to search all my past documents (quotes, orders, invoices, etc.) related to a specific part number.

                                We have had few feedbacks from our customers who mention that this feature is currently being offered by our competitor's portal.

                                  • Override the product name on the store

                                    Aside from language translations, it would be good if we could override the item name. We can kind of do it on product detail pages with the Title field but List/Search pages still use the Item Name from ERP. This might include info or codes that help our internal processing but look ugly on a customer facing site. If running multiple sites from one ERP, it could allow a "trade-speak" name on B2B-focussed sites and a more friendly name on B2C sites.

                                    • Use the SMTP Sender option on form mails

                                      All of the form mails come from the common address of the store. If you hit Reply, you are sending the response back to the store, not the customer! The Sender option would send replies to the customer and allow software like "CRM for Outlook" for SAP B1 to match the customer email address to a Business Partner automatically. No more guessing which BP has sent the email!

                                      • Iclude the calling page on the Contact form mail

                                        A Form Mail variable with the previous or calling page URL/Title. Some shoppers click contact us and write "Info on this please" and we do not know what they are asking about!

                                        • Prepopulate the contact form for logged in shoppers

                                          If a shopper is logged in, we already have their name, email, possibly phone number. How about pre-filling those contact form fields to save them some typing? It also helps if they have a long customer name i.e. Johnsons Trade Supplies; they are likely to just type "JTS" making it hard to match up to the ERP account.
