  1. Translations for "Countries" out of NAV

    The names of the countries available in shop is taken from NAV Contries/Regions table. But there is no way to do translations for that. Neither for list in webshop or for order confirmation mails etc.

    • building webshop navigation tree from path field in erp system.

      As far as I understand the design, it appears that you have to create a topic filter which includes then the ERP fields and settings that act as a filter for that topic in the webshop. If we add an ERP field that contains the path (like /vendor/category/subcat/size) for each item, then sana can build an dependency tree in the database from all these paths and show the possible values of each level of the webshop (i.e show all vendors, then shop all category values of a specific vendor etc etc) Using this method the webshop tree is controlled by…

      • Turn the shop in Maintenance mode

        It would be nice if you can make a setting to turn the shop in maintaince mode, so at the shop site you only see one page that the shop is underconstuction.

        • social media

          Social Media plugins.

          Right now we can add a Facebook plugin via HTML injections.
          And following as code in Text Block.

          But in this way we can't place the window wherever we like. It is a fixed place..
          Another issue on the Instagram plugin, if we try to do it via HTML injections and again in a text block, the Instagram feed appears above the header of below the footer.

          Is this a problem that has reached you guys yet?
          Currently working in Sana 9.2, we're looking for an update to 9.3 but not sure whether that problem will be…

          • 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.

            • collect payment for overdue balance

              working in a similar way to the 9.3 credit limit validation, it would be good to have the option to warn/force payments from customers with an overdue balance. e.g. they may be within their credit limit (or not), but have unpaid invoices that have passed their due date, for which payment could be collected through sana in the context of placing a new order.

              • Change the order of products in the shopping cart

                When a customer adds products to his basket, the order in which the products are shown in the basket are not making sence. The product that is choosen last, is showed at the top op the basket and the item first selected is on the bottom.

                It's more logical that you will get an overwiew of what you selected from 1 to ... So the item you selected first, will be on the first position in te basket. Our B2B customers complained about this functionality and so we made some customization.

                When we compare this to all kind of diferend…

                • Error unclear on flexipage

                  When an error occurs while editing a flexipage on a collapsed content element. It should expand the element. Now it jumps to the right tab but the error is on one of the collapsed elements making it unclear for the customer where the problem is.

                  • Add Unit of Measure form item attribute to specifications

                    On the item attribute card it is possible to add an "Unit of Measure".

                    When i sync the attributes to Sana the unit of measure is missing in the specifications table.

                    Example: i add a attribute "Max loading weight" with a value of 500 end the Unit of Measure is Kg, i only see the description with the value 500, but the "Kg" is missing

                      If a customer has shipping addresses in diffrent countries it would be nice if they can select in which currency they want to pay.

                      • 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,…

                        • 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.

                          • Breadcrumb for flexi-pages

                            SANA does provide breadcrumb for catalog pages, however, even if you do structure your flexi-pages URL with category/subcategory/page, there is no option to add a breadcrumb to the created flexi-pages which prevents a proper content discovery by the user (and doing this by hand is long and subject to mistakes, not to mention the update needed if you're moving/adding new section as time goes on).

                            • Override the product name on the store

                              Aside from language translations, it would be good if we could override the item name. We can kind of do it on product detail pages with the Title field but List/Search pages still use the Item Name from ERP. This might include info or codes that help our internal processing but look ugly on a customer facing site. If running multiple sites from one ERP, it could allow a "trade-speak" name on B2B-focussed sites and a more friendly name on B2C sites.

                                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.

                                  • 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,…

                                    • Show prices and estimated shipping cost based on user location

                                      Currently the user needs to set an address in the checkout for the webstore to display prices for this location (i.e. including or excluding taxes). It would be nice to have a location selection in the webstore similar to the language selection. Additionally there could be an option where a new visitor is presented with a specific landing page to select a country to enforce the correct prices to be displayed. This could be automated based on the user's IP address (e.g. using the free GeoLite database: http://dev.maxmind.com/geoip/geoip2/geolite2/). Default languages could be set for each country so that a…

                                      • Add option to crop images

                                        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.

                                        • Add multipliers for image sizes for different pixel ratios

                                          In addition to the various image sizes defined for resizing images this could be used to create larger additional copies for high-resolution screens with different pixel ratios as used on mobile phones, tablets and modern desktop computers and laptops. The images could use a suffix to the filename which shows the pixel ratio they are targeted at (e.g. image.jpg and image@2x.jpg). The multipliers could be defined in a similar way as additional image sizes in the web.config file.
