  1. Draft page content when session expires

    In Sana 9.3 you introduced login session expiration, so if a Sana Admin is inactive for 20 minutes or more the session will be signed out. One big issue with this is that if you spend 20 minutes or more editing a web page and then save your content you are automatically signed out and the content is lost. This can not be intended and I will category it as a bug, so that you will not be signed out in this scenario.

    Also, sometimes you are editing pages, then for some reason you will be inactive for 20 minutes…

    • Expand capabilities of Customer Assortment List

      Add support for creating expressions similar to the Data Validation rules for setting up the Customer Assortment list, or add Customer Segments to the Sales Type filter list. We have item restrictions that are not always able to be captured by the current capabilities but which are not possible to manage manually.

      • Product fields Lenght, width, height in class SC_AXDataServiceClient_Product

        Product request contains fixed sana fields Lenght, depth, width that in class SC_AXDataServiceClient_Product initItemFields is linked to GrossDepth, GrossWidth and GrossHeight. But since AX also contains standard fields InventTable.Lenght, Depth and Width these fields cannot be requested. Suggestion/advice of Sana Consultant is to change the field name in Dynamics but this is not in line with the Microsoft Evergreen policy for Dynamics365FO. Please be aware of this.

          • 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.

            • Update/Improve Text Editor

              Update the CK Editor to include more formatting options--in particular support for text color and highlighting, and table creation.

                [SANA PRODUCT] Good idea! The focus for Sana Product for 2019 will be design. Under this “theme” we are going to improve Sana’s CMS flexibility in various ways.
                One of the ideas that we are now implementing is a Visual Composer. Stay tuned!

              • Different default unit for B2B/B2C (Pcs. vs. Box)

                As of right now, there's only one default unit of measure when buying through Sana.

                For B2C customers it only makes sense that they buy individual pieces. But for B2B costumers I would love to see them presented with the option of buying a full box as default, without having to change the settings for end consumer as well.

                This would make the platform more friendly towards being able to handle both B2B and B2C well.

                • 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.

                  • GLS integration

                    GLS is a really popular shipping service in the Nordic contries and they offer very affordable prices for delivery in Europe.

                    They also offer delivery to parcelshops, making the service even more popular with B2C customers.

                    It would be a great step towards a more B2C friendly platform to have this integrated into to the shipping settings.

                    • Force password change

                      When we create new shop accounts we create them manually with a random and then send sign in information to customer by email. Having passwords in emails is bad security wise, and we always encourage our customers to change password after their first sign in. But we have no control about who is actually doing it.

                      It would be great if we on the Shop Account page could have some "Force to change password at next sign in" field, forcing the customer to actually change their password.

                      This would make eCommerce so much safer for Sana users.

                      • Account roles for account type "Contact"

                        We sell to B2B only and want to all the shop accounts to have be account type "contact". There are multiple reasons for that, for example statistics and other business processes.

                        But if we select "Contact" the possibility to set account role disappears, and this really limits the self service in Sana for our customers. It would be awesome to have account role for contacts as well!

                        • Product specification value translation

                          It should be possible to translate also product specification values and not only titles, sometimes specifications like color names are added to the product detail page.
                          Looking at the function AddProductSpecifications in class Catalog Api I have seen that only title and ValueTitle are translated, I think that also value should be managed in the same way

                          • Integrate Item Cross Reference numbers with Sana

                            Our industrial customers are buying everything from us through their own procurement systems. They have their own Item Numbers for all Items. We have linked the customers Item Numbers with ours Item Numers using Item Cross Reference Entries in NAV. It would be great if this numbers got synced with Sana so our customers can search for they own item numbers and find the items they are looking for. Item Cross Reference numbers should also be visible in the Customer Assortment lists, and customer should be able to tag Item with their own numbers for example in the Check Out…

                              • Include HTML code in mapping extensions.

                                In the mapping between Perfion-Sana it isn't possible to include HTML text to fill a description of a product. It copy all the text in one phrase (bulletpoints, enters,...). If we format a text in the rich text editor in Perfion we would like to have the same layout in Sana.

                                • more options for "Availability depends on stock" function

                                  More options are needed for "Availability depends on stock" function. The option should be added to product sets, product lists and maybe idividual items.
                                  My Reasoning: I have a bunch of items lying around in my warehouse that I want to get rid of, therefore I would like to list them on the web store.
                                  The problem is that I also want to dropship a bunch of items that I don’t have in my warehouse.
                                  Current functionality will have me choose either or of the above. We need more flexibility

                                  • Page specific product specifications

                                    Page specific product specifications.

                                    Product specifications are now site wide, It would be neat to have an page specific option as well, like you got for sorting fields, facette filters etc.

                                    • Product ID links to detail page in Package Contents

                                      If a SKU is made up of components (Sales BOM in SAP B1, for example) we get a "View package contents" link on the product page. Clicking it gives the "Package Contents" overlay. It would be great if the product ID (and/or name or whole row) could be a link the the product detail page of the component

                                      • Set default country in Customer Registration

                                        On customer registration pages, the country list is in alphabetical order. Most customers are from our home country but this is near the bottom of a long list. It would be great to be able to set a default country and have that appear at the top of the list (or selected and the dropdown be at that point)

                                        • Use default language setting throughout Sana Admin

                                          We set a default language in Basic Setup of Sana Admin to something other than "English" (US English).

                                          On admin pages where the language can be chosen, we have to change the dropdown from "English" to our default (and often forget!)

                                          It would be great if the selection followed the default set in the Basic Setup
