  1. Content Element Library

    Allow content blocks to be saved to a library for future use, or for easy insertion into another page. For example, a holiday sale graphic or a promotional video that applies to many items could be quickly reused or inserted into a new page.

    [SANA PRODUCT] Great idea! The focus for Sana Product for 2019 will be design. Under this “theme” we are going to improve Sana in various ways. One of the ideas that we are now implementing is a Visual Composer. Re-usable content, such as a holiday banner that a shop owner wants to re-use in various places, is definitely one of the things that will be part of this big journey.

  2. Filter (with facets) products based upon price ranges

    As a customer i would like to filter (with facets) products based upon price ranges, from price X till price Y.

    [SANA PRODUCT] We have this feature on our radar, but it’s still a difficult topic to tackle. The reason for that is that pricing is in most cases customer specific (the way how we get them from the ERP at least). Those prices are in Sana always loaded real-time. If you want to use them for a slider, they have to be indexed for performance reasons (which means that they cannot be real-time). We have implemented this approach a few times as a customization with some limitations, but it’s a tough cookie to crack if we want to build this into the standard product. We will continue our investigation on this topic.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

    [SANA PRODUCT] We are currently working on re-building our front-end based on the newest technology (React). You can find more information on this on our Roadmap Portal (https://roadmap.sana-commerce.com). We might introduce a new feature like this in our new front-end, but this is still uncertain.

    For the time being, you could consider using the Code Content Element and embed a form from Google Forms / TypeForm. This will already provide a good solution for most cases.

    You can find a useful tutorial on our Sana Help:

  5. GLS integration

    GLS is a very popular shipping provider in the Nordic contries and they offer very affordable delivery in all of Europe.

    GLS is espeacially popular for B2C costumers as they are cheap and can deliver to parcelshops.

    An integration with GLS and their parcelshop system would be a big step towards a more B2C friendly platform.

    [SANA PRODUCT] Thanks for this feedback. At this moment, we are developing standard integrations with both Consignor and Transsmart. These shipping providers supports both standard delivery and pick-up locations – also GLS. This gives our customers the flexibility in changing and adding shipping providers in Sana, without touching any APIs. And with offering more delivery options, shop visitors will have the freedom to select the fastest, cheapest or their preferred carrier.

  6. 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,…

  7. Make the exploded view page functionality (cf. northkiteboarding) available as an add-on

    Example: https://shop.northkiteboarding.com/en-gb/sparepartskites/sparepartsrebel2018

    This would suit a lot of our customers with B2B or B2C spare parts webshops, who are struggling with how to clearly show spare parts of a BOM article, being able to go the spare part product page to order it by clicking on an area of an an exploded view image.

  8. Register after checkout

    Sana v9.2.0 adds the possibility to check out as a guest. It would be nice if the guest checkout would offer the possibility to register for an account after the order has been submitted. The user should then only be required to supply the information that wasn't already supplied to place the order (e.g. a password). This could also simplify the checkout by reducing the number of options when the user isn't signed in at the time of checkout: sign in to an existing account or continue as guest with the option to register.

  9. Add option for a Content Delivery Network (CDN)

    This could simply be an option that allows you to set a URL for a CDN in the admin. If a URL for a CDN is configured all URLs for images and other resources like scripts and stylesheets should be modified to point to the CDN. This would speed up the loading times for these resources (especially with large images) and reduce the server load.
