  1. Introduce strict naming convention

    The inconsistent naming that is used for WooThemes Themes, Plugins, Classes, Functions, Text Domains, ... should be fixed by introducing something like a 'WooThemes Naming Convention'.

    Don't misunderstand me, your plugins (and also those sold by other authors via WooThemes) are awesome and a real time-saver. But, for example, integrating WooThemes plugins into a non-WooThemes theme, can be really exhausting.

    For example Sensei: Sensei's plugin folder itself is named 'woothemes-sensei', but the folders of (free) plugins are named 'sensei-certificates' etc. Why not just call all folders 'woothemes-sensei-%s'? (replace %s with that addons name)

    The same for the plugin names: In…

    • add more options to Email Follow up manual emails

      Hi,

      I would like to see more options to filter manual emails, as well as more variables available for the manual emails. For example, we have a subscription service and we ship a physical product at the end of each month. We would like to send a follow-up email to all active subscribers, or all pending orders about 3 days before shipping to have them confirm their shipping address (We've had a lot of issues with customers changing their shipping address after their order for the month being placed and complaining because their order shipped to the old address)

      We…

        • Product Vendors

          Product Vendors - adding vendor's reputation and 5 stars evaluation is really a good idea to increase overall site reputation.

          • Please add the out-of-stock items to the comparable products in your compare pro extension

            The compare pro extension allows my customers to only choose in-stock items to see the side by side comparison page. But sometimes they would like to compare it with out of stock items and decide if they can use the in-stock item or they should wait for the other.

            • Block X days after a previous booking

              It would be good if there is an option to allow X number of block out days (which cannot be booked) after an existing booking. These days may be useful for maintenance purposes.

              • price comparison set/plugin for Affiliate publishers

                Hello, i would like woocommerce to introduce a price comparison set for affiliate marketers or shops so that customers can get different prices for a particular product on an affiliate store or website.

                • Refund subscription

                  Provides a mean to refund a cancelled subscription. It should prorates the unused part of the subscription price and then refunds that amount through chosen payment gateway via the corresponding invoice, as for regular products.

                    • Coupons instead of discount in Points and Rewards

                      For Points and Rewards: I would like to give my clients (automatic) Coupons instead of discount and I would want the possibility to not show the field for redeeming points at checkout.

                      • Midnight bookings

                        Now bookings after midnight appear on the next day's list. That's very confusing and annoying to clients. It's a simple function of letting the admin decide when a day ends. Can you add this in a future update of WC Bookings?

                        • Optimize the checkoutprocess - for faster and easier use and more Customers!

                          Hello, the checkoutprocess could be improved to converting more customers. So far you have to scroll a lot down and the width is not used for maximum purpose for example concerning the input fields.

                          Instead of having 2 columns with billing, shipping and the review and payment in the bottom as a full column, an opportunity to choose another template with 3 columnns would be a great way not to loose so many customers through the checkoutprocess, because they will immediatly have an overview and getting faster through it.

                          The third column should be for the payment and order overview.

                          • Testimonials plugin for wordpress, add a 'submit your testimonial' button for users/customers

                            Maybe I have just missed how to do this, or maybe i'm being a bit stupid, but am I right in thinking that a new testimonial can only be added on the back-end of wordpress?

                            Surely there should be a place for customers to add there own review, and then the web master approves the review for the site. Not allowing customers to submit there own testimonals seems a bit false, and that means genuine reviews are hard to come by.

                            Also this would mean every review will have to be manually added by the web master on wordpress back-end,…

                            • Automatically alert user that product isn't available in their country

                              It'd be nice if there was a way to alert someone if a product isn't available for a specific country on checkout? Especially for dropshippers who have different shipping costs, depending on the destination country, especially if some dropshippers ship to certain countries, while others don't.

                              For example:

                              I know woocommerce gives you the ability to offer products to different countries, but let's say I have a product that can be shipped to U.S. & Canada, but not France, and at the same time I have a different product that can be shipped to U.S., France, but not Canada.

                              • Limit Booking Resource per day

                                So, I have some contractors listed as resources. I do like the resource option. However, for some bookings they may take people on a 6 hour hike in a day. The problem is that despite the person being available time wise later on in the day, they can only do 1 hike per day.

                                This feature would also be nice for say someone who gives massages.
                                Sure, time wise they can do maybe 10 in a day, but they probably don't have the energy to.

                                Same goes for personal training, stripping (okay that was is just funny), party clown, hair…

                                • Bookings Display price range with toggle

                                  I will just copy and paste what I originally posted here

                                  https://support.woothemes.com/hc/communities/public/questions/203531766-Display-price-range-table-on-Bookings

                                  I'd like to be able to display a price range above the calendar. I can add this manually with jQuery, but then I of course have to pull the data from the database unless I want to manually enter this information each time.

                                  My suggestion is to just have a little check box in the Costs tab that says "Show table for price range on product page". I'd then have it appear so that it sits right above the calendar with a toggle option and have it defaulted…

                                  • Bookings Responsive design

                                    Make the Back end of the Booking Plugin Responsive.

                                    It's works great on a desktop but try to manage Bookings on the back end thru WooCommerce on a Tablet or iPhone and it's embarrassing to show a client.

                                      Hello, maybe this is an already existing feature (i cant seem to find it) but I think it would be a cool feature if the end user was able to take notes whilst doing the courses, this request has come up a number of times with my clients.

                                      • Send a pre-loaded cart via a URL

                                        Allow customers to build/fill a shipping cart and then send that cart to somebody else (not necessarily a register user) via an email. My clients, who are teachers, could put the right items and product variations in a cart, email the link to a parent in order to buy the right supplies.

                                        This plugin exists in CodeCanyon but has not been updated to run with WP 4.0 or the newest version of WC. I'd rather have one by Woo! anyways...

                                        • WooCommerce Sales Report Email - Add Inventory Report

                                          Hey guys, We have a client who needs something similar to the existing "WooCommerce Sales Report Email" extension but they need it for inventory reporting. Does something like this exist or could the existing extension be modified to add that? I think that email reports for everything would be an excellent feature to add into the core or to sell as a full-featured extension. Thanks for your help with this. We're big fans of WooCommerce.

                                          Joel
