  1. discount code minimum basket value

    Make it possible to set a minimum basket value for a discount code to be valid. For example, we want to give 10 euro's discount, but only if the customer orders for more than 100 euro's.

    Maybe make it possible to create a customer segment based on basket value? Then we can add the customer segment to the discount code.

  2. Visitors segmentation according to website's language

    It would be very handy if we could create segments to hide or show content according to the language that the visitor selects on the website.
    That is, before they log in, otherwise we can use one of the [Customer] fields.

    99% of the time, the visitor that chooses a language is located in the related country. We have content that is not relevant to people in specific countries because we don't sell some products there. But we are forced to translate the content (otherwise the blocks will take the primary language) and to write a note that it is…

    [SANA PRODUCT] Hi, thank you for the feedback! We are now working on our new CMS in Sana, and discussed your feedback idea. One of the questions we had is the behavior what you would like to happen if no translation is available? Could you please let us know what should happen in your view?

  3. Sell products by length or width

    We are selling products by length or width, and often our buys multiple pieces of a product.

    For example can a customer select 2 meters of a product, push the purchase button, and after that select 3 meters of the same product and push the purchase button. This should be 2 lines in the basket for each Product addition, but instead you get 1 line with 5 meters length. This makes it impossible for us to know how many pcs and lengths our customer requires.

  5. Video issue

    Videos in full width on large screens are not responsive to mobile screens. In that case, SANA will only show a thumbnail picture on small screens instead of the video.

  7. "Child menu items" content element for flexi pages

    The "child menu items" make the presentation of categories/sub-categories very easy; but only for navigation menu items.
    For flexi pages we need to manually create "children" that we want to present under a common topic. This is time consuming.
    It would be very handy and time saving if we could use the "child menu items" in flexi pages.
    1) Create the landing pages of the "children".
    2) Add an image for each "child" like when editing a "Menu item".
    3) Add the "Child menu items" content element in a new "parent"-flexi page.
    4) Add the "children"-flexi pages, we have created…

  8. News page flexibility


    • News overview page, with the Headlines on the left column and the News on the right column should be more flexible. For example, we don't need the Headlines column. Also, in order to present images I had to do a "trick" with the short description's code.

    • Each News page should be also more flexible. There should be options for elements to be added such as images, videos etc.

    • The URL of the news page (www.domain.com/news) is not translated to the language selected. This creates a break in the link sequence, as we have the detail pages' URL in…

  9. 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?

  10. USP

    It would be useful if you could insert hyperlinks on the USP's

  11. Possibility of configuring rules or use ERP logic/calendar for requested delivery date picker during checkout

    It should be possible to configure rules for the date picker of the requested delivery date field during checkout, so that a shop owner can define that delivery in the weekend (eg. on Sunday) or the next day is not possible by default.

    A very nice integration feature would be that the ERP calendar of deliveries for that specific customer is retrieved and only relevant dates are available to be selected. Eg, the customer can only select Tuesdays or Thursdays, if that is the setup on the customer card in ERP.

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. Attributes for slides and background images

    It would very good for SEO and CSS purposes if we could add attributes in slide images and background images; "alt=", "class=", "id=".

    This could make their CSS styling much easier and they could contribute to the SEO of the page.

    The only thing that can be done right now is to use the class of the background image, which is automatically created from its text position (see screenshot); for this example the class is "tile-block-img t-l" (t-l=top left). Although this is a good trick for anyone who knows, it is not the proper way for many reasons.

  16. Apply a discount code for all online orders

    In order to get my customers start using the web store, I want to apply a discount code for all online orders that come in for a specific certain timeframe (e.g. the first month). This discount should apply to all online orders.

    [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.

    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

  20. 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).
