    When creating Components or other items which need to sit in a particular publication it is annoying realising your in the right folder but in the wrong publication and then have to navigate to the same folder in a different publication to make content...

  • Add Schema Name Column to the Explorer View

    • In Progress
    • 8 Comments
    Currently the CME interface has columns for name, type (component, folder, etc), publication, and modified date. It would be helpful if there was also a way to display what the schema for a component is. This could take the form of a new column....

  • Republish option in Publish Queue

    • Idea Delivered
    • 16 Comments
    How about a "Republish" or "Redo" option on the publish queue items? Sometimes a transaction fails (and get fixed in the background) which require republish. Currently you have to locate the page or sg again in the tree, and then click on the publish...

  • Versioning of Structure Groups/Folders/Publications

    • Under Community Review
    • 7 Comments
    Many times somebody has updated the Publication Properties, Folder Metadata, Structure Group Metadata, Category Properties or Keyword Properties/Metadata only to break something and it be found out later. We can see the issue, when it occurred, but...

    It only saves a click but when inserting content into a page in the CME, why not auto select the CT if it is the only one?

  • Allow editors to insert regions into a page

    • Under Community Review
    • 3 Comments
    Currently, a page region, with all its nested regions and subregions and sub-subregions, is defined by an implementer. If editors were allowed to pick one of a number of subregions, the system would be much more powerful and easier to maintain. This...

  • Automatic update for hotfixes

    • Under Community Review
    • 4 Comments
    The user experience for installing hot fixes is terrible. I hate having to look through the list of zip files on SDL Tridion World or the FTP (where there's just the hotfix name). Some sort of installer mechanism that keeps track of them is sorely needed...

    It would be useful to have custom icons for Embeddable Schemas and Metadata Schema in the list view of Content Manager Explorer, to be able to differentiate these items. If possible, the "Type" column should be display the full schema type (instead...

  • Have the Workflow Designer support the latest 64-bit editions of Visio

    • Under Community Review
    • 3 Comments
    Currently, the Workflow Designer requires a 32-bit version of Visio (2010, 2013 or 2016). Most people (I would guess) have the 64-bit version installed. They need to uninstall that and install the 32-bit version. Please start supporting the 64-bit...

    • Idea Delivered
    • 4 Comments
    The DXA comes with a Core module, with example schemas and templates used to build the example website. This is a useful reference, but many DXA implementation will not make use of these and they will normally be deleted to prevent them being accidentally...
