  1. Google analytics E-commerce features

    It would be helpful if there could be a document which explains the use of Google Analytics E-commerce platform. Now there is one for standard Google Analytics and goals, but not for the specific E-commerce features.

    Info that can be given:

    • Use of Google Tag Manager
    • Which variables should be used in the datalayer
    • How to display revenue, conversion percentage for E-commerce, Unique purcheases,...

  2. 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…

  3. Automatically disable internal (on account) payment method when credit limits are validated with online payment

    Besides the online payment methods, it is also possible to create a payment method linked to the internal (on account) 'payment provider', to enable the customer to pay the order on account.

    When credit limits are validated and enabled with online payment in Sana admin, you only expect the customer to be able to choose the 'real' online payment methods when he/she exceeds the credit limit, as you want him/her to pay online. In the current solution he/she can still select the internal (on account) payment method.

    The internal (on account) payment method should be automatically hidden in this scenario.

  4. Unique discount codes

    Possibility to provide guests/B2C customers a unique discount code to buy a specific product(s) with a certain discount/price. This code should only be used one time and then expires.

    Redeem codes as it is implemented in Sana Saas do not answer to this desire and is no watertight solution to offer a discount to a specific group selected persons.

  5. 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

  6. Auto create prospect with completed form - new customer

    I would like to add a customer registration form in SANA. Completely filled in forms will automatically create a new prospect in D365 with all required data. The sales manager can convert it easlily to customer. Less work and more efficient.

  7. Attributes for slides and background images

    It would very good for SEO and CSS purposes if we could add attributes in slide images and background images; "alt=", "class=", "id=".

    This could make their CSS styling much easier and they could contribute to the SEO of the page.

    The only thing that can be done right now is to use the class of the background image, which is automatically created from its text position (see screenshot); for this example the class is "tile-block-img t-l" (t-l=top left). Although this is a good trick for anyone who knows, it is not the proper way for many reasons.

  8. Apply a discount code for all online orders

    In order to get my customers start using the web store, I want to apply a discount code for all online orders that come in for a specific certain timeframe (e.g. the first month). This discount should apply to all online orders.

  9. 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 Commerce responded

    [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.

  10. 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.

  12. Add possibility to support URL's as product attachments

    When using the inRiver add-on, it should be possible to add an URL as a product attachment, if the customer eg. wants to link to files stored on the website of the supplier.

    With the current version of the inRiver connector it is not possible to use an URL as a product attachment, in the same way as is currently possible when using Microsoft Dynamics AX for instance.

  13. Language support for attachments

    Currently the inRiver connector does not support languages for product attachments (mapped to the SANAPRODUCTATTACHMENTSRELATIONS setting in inRiver).

    It should work in the same way as with the standard ERP integration or Perfion add-on, that only the attachments are presented in the language the customer has chosen in the webstore.

    [SANA PRODUCT] We looked into this issue, and it seems that we don’t support language specific attachments for our ERPs for product attachments (only for sales document attachments). We indeed support language specific attachments in our PIM systems. The development team will look into this scenario.

  14. Item search in order history

    To be able to search for items in the history of orders/invoices/quotes in my account.

    [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/).

  15. Multiple values per characteristic

    We would like to have multiple values per characteristic. For example; a certain product can be mounted using Glue, Screws and Rivets. In SAP ECC we are able to have multiple values, but Sana only displays 1 value.

    See printscreen for more information.

  16. Metatags are not auto populated through a field in SAP as manually filling metatags for every product is very time consuming

    Metatags are not auto populated through a field in SAP B1, as manually filling metatags for every product is very time consuming. There should be an option to upload metatags through CSV based on product code. We have also talked to few of other SANA users and they also have same issues.

  17. 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…

  18. Order of Items in Mix & Match

    It would be nice if the order of items, given bei Business Central in item substitutions, instead of the entry order could be used.

  19. VAT code from NAV

    In the basket the VAT tekst is directly coming from NAV, if a customer has set a code that doesn't make sence on the shop you can not change it in the shop. It would be nice if you can set a Sana text for this code. See also the examples attached.

  20. 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?)
