  • AppStore OnPrem Integration
    AppStore OnPrem Integration

    With the new App System it is possible to develop extensions for Shopware Cloud and Shopware self-hosted. Actually an additional plugin has to be installed in the self-hosted version to use the App System, which is not convenient for self-hosted merchants. This is why the App System will get a part of the platform like the plugin system so it will be available out of the box and merchants can purchase and activate apps without the need of an additional plugin. The result is that all Shopware merchants (Cloud and self-hosted) will get the possibility to use Apps and Themes created via the App System. Extensions developers can develop the Apps and Themes in a local environment and make them available for both Cloud and self-hosted merchants.

  • CMS - Product Page Layouts
    CMS - Product Page Layouts

    Through the CMS system in Shopware, it is already possible to create impressive user interfaces. With this topic the CMS becomes even more powerful. So in the future not only lists and landing pages can be individualized, but also one of the most elementary places in the store, the product detail page. Merchants can thus convince their customers of the advantages of their products even better. The blocks of the detail page can be reused, so that products can also be purchased via other store pages.

  • Canonical URL Handling for Products
    Canonical URL Handling for Products

    The correct setting and maintenance of Canonical URLs is especially important for SEO.

    Therefore, in the future it will be possible to fine-tune for each product whether variants get their own Canonical URL or the same.

     

    Platform
  • Create Rules with Property Label
    Create Rules with Property Label

    With the very flexible rule system in shopware I can already create rules based on property values. To improve the clarity especially with many property groups, the property groups and values are now always displayed next to each other in the rule builder and in the Dynamic Product Groups.

    Platform
  • Custom Search Index & Ranking
    Custom Search Index & Ranking

    The search in a store, is essential so that all customers can find exactly the products they need. The search should be able to be configured and adapted much more flexible with this topic. Merchants can configure in fine granularity which fields are relevant for the search and what influence they have on the search result.

    In addition, the behavior of the search can be configured, e.g. whether the individual search terms are linked with an AND or OR relationship. This means that a search with multiple terms will display fewer hits or more.

  • Elasticsearch Improvements
    Elasticsearch Improvements

    With the use of Elastic Search, the performance can already be significantly improved today, especially with large amounts of data. With this initiative, we want to significantly improve the existing integration of Elastic Search. Besides some bugfixes we want to improve the indexing process which takes care of transferring the data to Elastic Search.

     

    Platform
  • Entity Lookup as Custom Field Type
    Entity Lookup as Custom Field Type

    Entity Lookup as Custom Field Type Shopware 6 can already be extended very individually and flexibly with new custom fields in the administration. In the future it will be possible to reference other data fields. So not only single values can be selected in custom fields but also direct links like the reference to existing data fields like products, categories, countries, shipping and payment methods and many more.

    Platform
  • Filter-Settings per Category
    Filter-Settings per Category

    In Shopware there are some filter options for the end customer in the storefront, so that the customer can get a better overview of the product range. Based on the contained products in a category the available property groups / filters are displayed. Since these are sometimes not useful depending on the category, you will be able to show or hide them depending on the CMS listing. This can also be done with the standard filters such as price or rating filters.

    Platform
  • Filters & Search for Admin Grids
    Filters & Search for Admin Grids

    Especially when large amounts of data are available in the administration, it is important not to lose the overview. To make this easier in the future, many new filter options are implemented with this topic for the 3 largest modules (products, customers, orders). These can be easily extended with a plugin, so that special filter properties are possible. Since the filtering can be combined with the existing search combination, it is no longer difficult to find exactly what you are looking for.

  • Improve Cache, HTTP-Cache and Performance
    Improve Cache, HTTP-Cache and Performance

    The performance of a store is one of the most important prerequisites for the acceptance of the webshop by customers. One way to ensure the speed of the store even in scenarios with many customers, e.g. during a promotional campaign, is the use of an HTTP cache.

    With this initiative we want to improve the already existing HTTP cache in shopware in all aspects. Above all, we want to improve the cache management so that only the pages that are important are cached, without making the cache get bigger and bigger. Also the performance for the creation of the sitemap will be improved significantly.

  • Improve promotions UX
    Improve promotions UX

    The promotions feature already gives a wide range of possibilities to set different kinds of discounts, might it be on single products, groups of products or shipping, on base of target groups or shopping carts or a lot more specifications. But due to the highly flexibility of the feature, it's not that easy to find the perfect settings.

    Therefor we gonna simplify the whole process of setting a discount. With the help of a wizard with predefined typical promotions (e.g. "Buy x, get y free") it will be much easier and faster to set up promotions.

  • List Price per Price Rule
    List Price per Price Rule

    List Prices are used in shopware to inform the end customer f.e. about the recommended retail price. With this topic the specification of list prices will also be possible for advanced pricing.

    For example, customer group specific list prices or list prices based on other rules can be assigned individually.

    Platform
  • Prevent Deletion of used Rules
    Prevent Deletion of used Rules

    The rule system is one of the most important tools in shopware to configure e.g. products, shipping methods or payment methods. Therefore it is of major importance that you always know which rule is used for what. With this topic it is possible to prevent that a rule can be deleted while it is still in use.

  • Rich-Text Editor with Variables
    Rich-Text Editor with Variables

    With the use of the CMS, flexible page contents can already be produced today.

    A new possibility to design pages more individually and with little effort is the integration of variables or placeholders in the text editor.

    In the future, merchants will be able to use generic texts again and again and have them automatically individualized according to their specific situation.

    For example, depending on the context, the product name or other fields such as category name can be used as placeholders, so that this is dynamically exchanged with the actual value in the later presentation.

  • Save Cart/Product on Wishlist
    Save Cart/Product on Wishlist

    It often happens that customers do not want to buy all the products they are interested in directly. For this reason, this initiative implements a wishlist, which allows both logged in and unlogged in customers to save products for later purchase.

    No matter where the customer is in the store, in the listing, on the detail page or in the shopping cart. With just one click, the product or the concrete variant specification is saved for later use.

  • Site Builder
    Site Builder

    The Site Builder will enrich the possibilities of the categories. It will not only enable merchants to define Landingpages outside the category structure, but also will improve the overall handling of the category tree by newly defined category types and some little interface tweeks.

    Also, merchants will be able to define entry points for Sales Channels directly in the categories.

  • Vat handling for companies
    Vat handling for companies

    By entering a valid VAT-ID in the checkout, companies can view Net Prices, if the store operator allows this in principle. Merchants can configure whether they want to allow this in principle. In addition, it can be configured whether or not the VAT-ID is a mandatory field when companies register.

    Platform
  • PayPal Disputes
    PayPal Disputes

    Occasionally, something goes wrong with a customer's order. To simplify the handling of disputes over PayPal, the Resolution center will be implemented into the admin. In the first iteration, this will enable merchants to get an overview of the disputes and see the details of them.

    In a next iteration it will be possible to send messages to the customer and even make offers to resolve a dispute.

  • Migration SW 6 cloud to local
    Migration SW 6 cloud to local

    The migration assistant already helps store owners to migrate their products, orders, customers and much more from a Magento or SW 5 store to SW 6. But if someone wants to switch to our cloud solution, he doesn't have the possibility to do so. And vice versa, if a SW 6 cloud shop has growing requirements e.g. to individualize the shop, it's not possible to switch to a self-hosted SW 6 solution so easy.

    Therefor the migration assistant gets updated with the possibility to migrate between a self-hosted SW 6 solution and the SW 6 cloud solution and vice versa.

  • Fixed Workflow for Shopping Experiences
    Fixed Workflow for Shopping Experiences

    When working with multiple users in the administration, it might be necessary to have some kind of release-workflow for new layouts and pages. With this feature we will implement a fixed workflow for shopping experiences as basic integration for the new workflow builder that will follow. This basic integration can later be used for several other entities like products, categories and so on.

  • Workflow Builder for Shopping Experiences
    Workflow Builder for Shopping Experiences

    When working with multiple users in the administration it's quite common to have some workflows that are based on your business. Shopware needs to be able to adapt these workflows to make it easiert to integrate it in existing workflows. With the workflow builder you will be able to create own workflows in the administration, create own status and limit the transitions between the status to certain users. This will make it easier for you to define your own release workflow for shopping experiences.
