  1. Drop Shipping Automation

    Be great to be able to easily assign each product a warehouse to ship from. We ship from multiple warehouses around the country depending on the brand ordered. We are having to manually split orders and email the orders to each vendor.

    • Hierarchical organisation for CMS pages and blocks

      To better work with large amounts for static blocks and cms pages I think we need better tools to organize them. Even though there might never be alot of cms pages the amount of static blocks can really grow large.

      • Custom reports

        Being able to create custom reports to show information such as sales with all of the necessary columns is a real necessity. If the data could also be exported to csv/xml then this would go someway to solving issues with exporting customer and order data.

        • Fix Order Management Component of Backend

          A complete rewrite of the order management component of the backend is necessary to fix the multiple issues with order processing workflow, order management and order modification.

          Specifics would include (but not be limited to):
          - Revised order workflow for processing orders (ability to batch orders, etc.)
          - Ability to cancel or edit order without creating a new order
          - Ability to return different quantity of SKU than was ordered

            • CMS+

              Add CMS+, Enhanced Content Management System to community edition. This is the weak spot of the community edition. You can enable WYSIWYG but the newly added Enterprise edition CMS+ features should be available to the open source community too.

                • Back in Stock notification

                  When product is out of stock, let the customer leave an email address.

                  Once back in stock - send customer email to tell them item is available again.

                  • Swap Images in Configurable Products

                    As a configurable product is made by simple products, it would be interesting that when you select an attribute, the image to change according to the selection you made. It could browse through the simple productwith that attribute, get the image and load it in the front end.
                    For example, if you are buying a t-shirt. You have the option to choose the color. When you pick a the red color, the image changes to a red t-shirt.

                        This feature should be included in the Community Edition. Some of us really need this feature but can't afford the Enterprise edition.

                        • delete orders, even the completed ones.

                          The title speak for itself.

                          After website development, to test if all works good, you have to create lot of orders. But you can't delete completed orders with invoice, shipping etc...

                          Just add that possibility.

                          • Customer wants to Cancel An Order... We see the notification in the Sales > Orders Screen! A Must!

                            One of the biggest frustrations for ecommerce! A customer want to cancel an order, so they either email, submit a support ticket or call?

                            Calling is great, as this is instant! But emails and support tickets can get missed until it is too late.

                            EG Customer cancels an order by email at 15.45, but email goes unnoticed for 5, 10, 20 mins etc... In the mean time the order is packed and shipped at 16:00.

                            Very frustrating for both Merchant and Customer!

                            An easy, simple way for the merchant to be notified, directly to the Sales > Orders Screen should…

                            • Rental Feature

                              Rental feature that will allow virtual products/services to be bought. This would allow the following marketing to use Magento.

                              * Car Hire
                              * DVD/Game Hire
                              * Hotel/Apartment/Villa/Condo Hire
                              * Software Hire

                              In turn additional features could allow multiple levels of access for users to create products/services.

                              Payment options could also be considered. Is payment taken for subscription basis or percentage or each sale?

                              • Staging and Merging in Community Version

                                I find magento to be much more difficult than other web apps to reliably run a testing, staging and production setup.

                                Therefore i think the ability to run this all from the backend as it seems is possible in the extremely expensive Enterprise Edition is a must for the community one.

                                • To be able to set the admin logout time!

                                  This has got too be a No1 gripe for all. Can we (ourselves) decide, how long admin users remain logged into Magento for?

                                  Around 20 mins is way too short, for those who spend all day on Magento... p l e a s e !!! (pretty please)... with sugar on top!

                                  • UPS, FedEx (Barcode) Shipping Label Creation within Magento Admin.

                                    It would be nice to create shipping labels for FedEx and UPS from within the Magento admin. This new functionality would save time and and avoid having to leave Magento.

                                    • Profit Report

                                      This would apparently require additions to the DB to store 'cost' data when the item is purchased, but a Profit report is sorely missing in Magento right now.

                                      • Ability to add tags from admin panel.

                                        Need to be able add tags on products via admin panel. Good for SEO.

                                        • Group or bundle configurable products

                                          I think this might be a difficult one to work out, but certainly one I encounter many times with our clients: The option to bundle or group configurable products.
