  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.

    [SANA PRODUCT] This is a very good idea. We are investigating how we can improve our search engine. Expanding the search functionality with covering content (flexi-pages and potentially also documents), but also a smarter engine are definitely part of this search engine 2.0. This investigation is currently ongoing.

  2. 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).

  3. Register and login with Google, Facebook, PayPal etc.

    This would lower the threshold for new users to create an account and make it easier for existing users to sign in thus speeding up the checkout.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

    [SANA PRODUCT] This is a very good idea. We are currently investigating an improved version of our Sana Help (we call this project Community 2.0). As part of this project, the entire Sana Help functionality will be improved. Step 2 will be a smart integration with our Sana Admin panel to improve our customer experience for daily operations. Thank you for the feedback!

  8. 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,…

  9. 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.

    [SANA PRODUCT] We are now working on a big project called Design 2.0. In the scope of this project, we are also working on redesigning all pages and the design flexibility. This project will be released in portions. It might very well that we will improve the Product Detail Page with the functionality to use product videos in the display carousel.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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,…

    [SANA PRODUCT] We are currently implementing ReactJS as our front-end framework. We expect to have a full re-implementation of our front-end by the end of 2019. We are spending a significant portion of our development capacity to this project.

    It’s a big and ambitious project, but we are confident that it will add a lot of value in terms of stability and performance. I recommend you following our Roadmap Portal (roadmap.sana-commerce.com) for the latest updates.

  13. Add possibility to add a comment to each shopping basket item

    Add possibility to add a comment to each shopping basket line item. This is requested a lot and came up again during a training with partners.

  14. 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.

    [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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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

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

    Example: https://shop.northkiteboarding.com/en-gb/spareparts_kites/spareparts_rebel2018

    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.

    Add an option to crop an image exactly to the defined size. This option could be set using an additional attribute on the size definition in the web.config file.

  19. Terms and conditions as PDF attachment to confirmation email

    We have an issue with one of our shop certificates, the Danish "E-Mærket" certification (https://www.emaerket.dk), requiring that the terms and conditions accepted during checkout is also send attached as a pdf file with the confirmation email sent to the customer, therefor we would like to add an attachment feature for the confirmation email in order to maintain our certification.

    This function could be used for other things as well.

  20. 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…
