  1. Add and order import function

    Add a feature that allows customers to import orders from other sources. Give a file layout that if matched it can pull orders in very easily.

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  6. Refer-A-Friend Feature

    This could be an extension to the existing Affiliate feature.

    It would also be nice to set the "referral reward" to be a specific product instead of a monetary amount.

  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. 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…

  9. 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. 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…

  12. Multi-channel integration for marketplaces (e.g., Amazon, eBay) and/or API sync

    We need inventory and order sync with marketplaces (in our case, Amazon and eBay) and our accounting program. This could be accomplished with in-built integration (as AbleCommerce has done with ShipStation) or with an API connector to cloud integration middleware.

    This is really two feature requests: 1) Marketplace sync, and 2) API connector for order export. I am combining these requests because they could be accomplished at the same time with middleware multi-channel integration.

    As of today there are 50 votes on this forum for for features related to cloud sync (if you add up all the votes for integration…

  13. 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".

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. SECURITY: Send an e-mail when a user account is locked out from too many attempts

    In higher security sites you'll get an e-mail when anything on the account is changed for security measures. I'd like to see some of this extended to AC such as when a user account is locked due to too many password attempts someone is trying to hack into an account. It would be nice to have that user notified and the IP address of the offender if available. I saw this today where one of my accounts, non-admin (video demo use account) kept getting set to disabled. If I could get a notice of when my account is tampered with…

  19. Reindex individual types of data

    Extend the reindex function to let an admin just reindex the products. Current reindex also reindexes orders.

  20. Add Limit by Category ID for Featured Products Conlib

    It would be nice since our catalog has a few "Top Level" categories, if on the homepage for each section of the website, we could use the featured products conlib and have it only display products for a certain category and its subcategories.

    This way for example, the featured clothing doesnt show up in the fishing side of the website, or the hunting side, and vise-versa.
