Feature Requests & Ideas

Sana customers and partners can share ideas with us or vote on other people’s ideas. Our product team is listening. Please remember that this site is only for feature suggestions and ideas!

Have an idea?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  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.

      [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!

      • 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.

        • 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).

          • 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.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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,…

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • 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.
