  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.

      • 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 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.

          • 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.

                            The names of the countries available in shop is taken from NAV Contries/Regions table. But there is no way to do translations for that. Neither for list in webshop or for order confirmation mails etc.

                            • 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…

                                  Social Media plugins.

                                  Right now we can add a Facebook plugin via HTML injections.
                                  And following as code in Text Block.

                                  But in this way we can't place the window wherever we like. It is a fixed place..
                                  Another issue on the Instagram plugin, if we try to do it via HTML injections and again in a text block, the Instagram feed appears above the header of below the footer.

                                  Is this a problem that has reached you guys yet?

                                  • Error unclear on flexipage

                                    When an error occurs while editing a flexipage on a collapsed content element. It should expand the element. Now it jumps to the right tab but the error is on one of the collapsed elements making it unclear for the customer where the problem is.

                                    • Add Unit of Measure form item attribute to specifications

                                      On the item attribute card it is possible to add an "Unit of Measure".

                                      When i sync the attributes to Sana the unit of measure is missing in the specifications table.

                                      Example: i add a attribute "Max loading weight" with a value of 500 end the Unit of Measure is Kg, i only see the description with the value 500, but the "Kg" is missing

                                      • Click & Collect

                                        A shopping facility whereby a customer can buy or order goods from a store's website and collect them from a local branch.

                                        It would be great to be able to offer a click & collect option, so the user can select from a list which store to collect the item/s from. Obviously, stock at that location would need to be considered, so if the item is out of stock at the customer's specified location, click & collect cannot be used. Also, include the ability for the user to specify their 'local' store/location. For a good example of click and collect,…

                                        • 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,…
