Sana's Roadmap Portal offers a sneak peek into what product developments we’re planning. We are hopeful that the below can shed some light on our roadmap, but it is important to understand that it is being shared for informational purposes only.

Main focus for now is improving Sana's design system.
1) Visual Designer - our improved drag & drop CMS for creating and updating content in a visual way. 
2) New front-end based on React with great performance improvements and the first steps towards a Progressive Web App (PWA) and other headless solutions.

Sana Commerce Cloud has been released on 16 September 2020 (Initial Release).

Search engine improvements

expected in a future release
We are currently investigating different ways how to improve our search functionality.

Sana Admin Dashboard

expected in a future release
We will enrich Sana Admin with an intelligent dashboard where customers get warnings / recommendations relating to their web store. This dashboard will most likely get an Action Centre so that shop owners can easily see if everything is all right with their shop. We might also add Sana and E-commerce statistics to this dashboard later on.

Improve Sana's data portability

expected in a future release
We want to improve Sana's data portability: importing and exporting shop accounts, web pages, flexi-pages, product information, reviews etc. Also importing / export web store settings and exchange them between web stores is a very scalable feature.

Authentication Extension Point

expected in a future release
We are investigation the potential technological feasibility and benefits of building an Authentication Extension Point in Sana so that the authentication can also be based on identity providers other than the shop account email address (such as open standards for authentication).

status-icon In Progress

Improved Sana design framework

expected Sana Commerce Cloud release
We are currently investigating various improvements to Sana's design and front-end framework. In the short term, we will focus on adding more flexibility in changing the design of the header / footer. We are also working on a Visual Designer for drag & drop functionality for updating content. This will make it much easier for shop owners to create and maintain their content.

We also started with huge performance improvements by implementing a design front-end framework (React JS). This will make our Sana web stores extremely fast, and will be first step towards a Progressive Web App. We are also working on a more advanced Design System which consists of a Sana style guide, pattern library and a component library in the longer term.
