  1. Customer shipping options drop down box change to radial buttons show all!

    This is not my idea. This is in a post on the forums. See post http://forums.ablecommerce.com/viewtopic.php?f=65&t=19247. We have lost orders, we waste time with calls from customers having to change their order shipping options. This is the number one customer feedback problem we get from our customers when they are shopping at our site.This has been an issue for some time now and I would think that this could be modified with the new release coming. I posted the link from the forums hoping that the Able team will look at this and take note. I hate to have…

  2. Adding subscriptions to multiple products at once

    It would be very helpful to be able to add subscriptions to multiple products at the same time.

  3. Fix the picture size for Pinterest

    When someone "pins" a product on Pinterest it pulls the regular size picture, not the full size image that appears when you click the product picture. Pinterest is all visual and having the smaller pic pinned takes away from its effect. This also affects SEO and site traffic as more pins equals more links back to your site.

  4. Improve returns processing audit trail and customer order history

    When an item is returned in AbleCommerce, the item and its options detail are removed from the order history. This is a poor practice both from a customer service perspective and for accounting audit trail purposes. The original order item detail, as-delivered, should remain intact and include all item options. The returned item should appear as an additional line item with a negative quantity (-n) with a value and a date returned. Both the customer and store admins should be able to see detail for both "item-shipped" and "item-returned".

  5. Focus Username or Password on Login screen

    I should not have to click into the login screen to enter my username or password. If I use "remember me" and the username is filled in, focus the password box, otherwise focus the username box.

  7. Add a Read-Only Order Admin

    tl;dr:
    Order Admins can make changes to orders.
    Read-Only Order Admins should be able to search, read order information and Add Comment on the Notes tab.

    We have contractors who need to be able to find an order for customer service reasons (i.e. find the tracking number for a shipment, look up the contents of the order for customer support purposes, look at all orders from a particular customer to determine their customer support start/end date for a product). However, they should not be able to change anything about the order other than Add Comment in the Notes tab.

    Thank…

  8. Integration: Algolia Hosted Search Engine

    This request is for an integration between Ablecommerce and Algolia Hosted Search. I am a user of Stitch Labs, and they recently integrated Algolia into their platform, and wow it is awesome! The speed of results is milliseconds, and the ability to not have to type in an exact query to get relevant results is amazing.

    I would like their service to be integrated into Ablecommerce's search system. Right now, the search providers are internal querying the site's database for each query. It would be nice if there was an option to offload this to Algolia.

    Maybe start with an…

  10. Allow invloices to be organized by SKU

    We would love it if we could tell Able Commerce that we want the products on our invoices to be organized alphabetically by SKU.
    With our SKU system it would group like items together and make pulling the order much more efficient.

  11. Eliminate email templates as physical files

    It sure would be handy to eliminate the physical files for email templates and get them in the database. It's especially awkward when copying/moving a client storefront.

    /App_Data/ itself contains all the machine-specific files. License file, encryption file, all the minor config files. But it also contains the /EmailTemplates/ folder which is actually THEME/STORE specific, not machine specific.

    So we can't just copy a site and ignore /AppData/ We have to ignore the contents of /AppData/ but still remember to grab the /App_Data/EmailTemplates/ sub folder.

    Moving theme/store specific files out of /App_Data/ or just start storing the HTML…

  13. Allow custom URLs to be generated based on hierarchy and/or other criteria

    Currently, custom urls have to be manually entered. There should be a set of criteria you can set to automatically generate the custom url. New products should default to this url and there should be a tool to apply it in bulk to existing products. It'd be nice if 301 redirects were automatically created as part of this.

  14. NOTES field for CUSTOMERS rather than only for ORDERS?

    It's fine to have ability to store notes for a particular ORDER, how about notes on a per CUSTOMER basis? Like... "has refused 6 out of last 15 orders"... "has bounced 2 checks in last 90 days"... etc. Customer Profile area already exists... can a "Customer Notes" section be added to that?

  15. Layout Editor

    It would be much better if you could update the layout for ALL pages, rather than just some pages using the Manage Layouts. For example, I don't see anywhere to edit checkout pages or custom web pages. It would be less confusing and less time consuming to be able to do everything in one place, rather than having to do some of it here and the rest of it directly in Visual Studio.

    This is idea is currently under review for a future release. Visual Studio should not be a requirement to edit any page in AbleCommerce. It might take some work, but we are looking it over and will make a decision within the next few weeks.

  16. PayPal Credit Card Tokenization

    It looks like enhanced credit card storage is on the horizon for Authorize.net users. If possible, can PayPal be included in the works?

    I've looked around at different pages and articles about PayPal CC Tokenization. Heres what I've come up with.

    PayPal Forums asking if the concept exists: https://www.paypal-community.com/t5/Merchant-services-Archive/Does-Paypal-have-a-quot-Token-Payments-quot-concept/td-p/325794

    Payment extension for Magento: http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/paypal-credit-card-tokenization-extension.html

    Article talking about creating above extension: http://www.sitepoint.com/paypal-credit-card-tokenization-magento/

    In that article they talked about that they reached out to PayPal to help with developing the extension. Maybe that could help ablecommerce reduce dev time and costs if PayPal helps you?

    Since the USERS edit displays search history, could you add an index to the ac_SearchHistory table for UserId.

  19. Magnifying Preview Needs to Show Shipping Method

    While seeing the contents of the order via the magnifying preview is important we think displaying the shipping method is equally important.

  20. Some help needed

    I wonder if it would also be possible have the invoice date field be editable?
    Some of the current 'defective' invoices must be resubmitted with up-to-date invoice dates and I cant see how we can currently do that, other than adding a new payment and deleting an old one?
