  1. Login Pop-Up Window

    It would be nice to have the login as a pop-up instead of going to a flexi-page / login page. We have a lot of products so when a customer accidentally hovers over the navigation menu the login area is blocked.

  2. Allow all Sana Texts to respond to html/css styling

    Frequently we would like to change the size or styling of a system text string, or include a link, etc. Many of these texts do not respond to styling even when input in the editor's code view.

  3. FAQ as Content Element

    It would be awesome to create a content element using the same architecture as the FAQ web pages so that common questions could be embedded on other Flexi-Pages, or within PDPs and PLPs.

  4. google shopping xml feed

    XML Feed for Google Shopping.

    We would like to have a dynamic XML feed that we can send to google shopping. Each product record should have a field to enable/ disable it on the product feed.

    [SANA PRODUCT] Thank you for sharing this feedback! We have heard this idea more often. For the time being, you could consider using a third-party market place service, such as ChannelEngine or Channeable. They offer all kind of integrations, including data enhancement of the shopping data.

  5. Check in basket on min. order amount

    Customers very often ask us for a B2B shop to make a customisation in the basket to make a check on a minimum order amount. That minimum order amount is set in NAV per customer. So the total of the order amount should be higher then the amount that is set, before they can send the order to NAV. This is to prevent that customers will send multiple small orders in a week, than the handling will cost more than if the customer combine all in one order.

  6. File Manager

    Don't know whether it is already in the new upgrade, but an Image Preview and a Search Bar in File Manager would shorten the amount of searchtime. Especially when you have to find a productphoto, because the naming for the prodcutpictures is not SEO friendly..

    [SANA PRODUCT] We are currently working on improving our Sana Admin CMS editor. We call this project the “Visual Designer” where it will be much easier to create content. In addition, we will also review the rest of our Sana Admin with our UX experts. The file manager is definitely one of the candidates that needs improvement. Thank you for the feedback!

  7. Customers needing to order for multiple (bill-to) locations.

    Many of our customers own multiple businesses, restaurants, or chain accounts. They should be able to log in with one email and select the customer number (Customer ID) that they want to order for. Many time sthese are all separate bill-to's. Right now we can have one email associated to one customer account (or ship-to group). We have chef's at commissaries ordering for six locations (different customer id's) and i have to have them setup six gmail accounts to access.

  8. Delivery costs per item

    o The shop offers no possibilities to add shipping cost per item. Often this is very important (big products or quantities)
    o We would very much need this feature. In the shop we can‘t offer a lot of products, because we have too high shipping costs and these costs cannot be shown in the shop. For this reason, we have written an extension on the Navision part. In Navision, we can use our enhancement to categorize freight costs and automatically calculate and add the correct postage per order using a function. Such functionality in Sana would be very beneficial and…

    [SANA PRODUCT] We are currently rebuilding our front-end and Sana Admin based on ReactJS. This will bring huge performance improvements. Simultaneously, we also have our UX experts reviewing all pages in Sana (both front-end as Sana Admin). The My Account area also deserves improvement, especially the search functionality. We will definitely take this feedback into account when we will redesign this part of Sana. Please stay tuned with our Roadmap Portal (https://roadmap.sana-commerce.com/).

  12. mdo

    For the maintenance of the customer assortment in NAV, it would be great if you can add an item mark in the assortment. Because the item category and product group are not specific enough and the item no. is to specific, it cost al lot of time if you maintain this on the item no. level. If you use an item mark the maintenance is more flexible.
    It would also be better if the assortment at the customer level can be setup based on the countries/ regions code.

  13. 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…

    [SANA PRODUCT] Thank you for the feedback! We are now working on an improved Sana CMS / text editor which we call the “Visual Designer”. We will take this feedback into account when developing it. We expect to release a first (beta) version of this fancy editor by the end of ’19. Stay tuned!

    In NAV you can configure attributes and these specifications are shown on the product detail page. However, when you configure an integer or decimal attributes in NAV, the unit of measure will not be shown in Sana. For example; lenght as attribute, value is 46 and unit of measure is cm. In this case Sana will only shown 46 on the product detail page and not 46 cm

  15. Use automatic payment journal posting with multiple payment add-on's

    As a shop owner i would like to be able to use more than one payment add-on in the same webshop, and still be able to use automatic payment journal creation and posting in AX2012 and D365, so all payment mark and settlement will happen automatically in our ERP system.

    Today the account settings for automatic payment journal creation can only be setup for the shop as a whole, which means all payment go on same account. But you need an account per payment provider (add-on) to be able to settle the bank.

    A solution could be to be able…

  16. News Editing

    Hi there.

    When making articles in the News (system page) it is unable to add extra content blocks to those pages. This would make the news area a lot more pleasant to go over it or check some articles out. If we could add a product set to it, we can redirect again to our commerce and we could even add the newsletter subscription, so we can have more customers to give a heads up for new products etc. ( Currently working on 9.2 --> possible?)

  17. 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.

  18. ERP development guiding videos for newer ERP versions

    It is great if it possible to create ERP development guiding videos for newer ERP versions (MS Dynamics 365) as well. That way they can be shared with partners and partners will get a better understanding on how to do ERP code unit changes in new versions. Sometimes customization teams get questions from partners how to do changes in new versions once we send the existing set of videos (links).

  20. Checkout: Delivery method as an active choice for B2B Customers

    In Sana, the cheepest delivery method in the checkout is checked per default (In our case, Pickup Delivery = Free).

    The delivery method SHOULD BE AN ACTIVE CHOICE for all customers. A default checkmark is not acceptable.

    Why not acceptable?
    In our company, new online customers, which just created a new account, have to pay with credit card the first time they use the webshop. (We added a Credit Max of -1 in the Customer Registration Form)

    The Consequences of this Default-checkmark:
    If the new customer is in the most cases not aware of the (default) Pickup Delivery method (=…

    [SANA PRODUCT] This is a good topic. It’s correct that a “default checkbox” is not there, as you for example can find for payment methods. Something similar would be a good add to the product which we will consider.

    For the time being, you could probably add a customer segment for the shipping method pick-up (e.g. only for customers from a postal code) if the actual group that picks up packages comes from a certain region de facto.
