  1. Add an option to choose "default" nic for inbound/outbound

    It would be nice to have a UI option in IP addresses to choose which NIC to use for inbound/outbound.

  2. Show notification about available manual system packages updates

    Kernel updates are excluded from Plesk update manager (https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003708353), however, no notification about available kernel updates is shown under Tools & Settings > System Updates. It is necessary to implement such warnings so that one is aware of available updates and can run these manually via command-line interface.

  3. Manage all the additional Plesk PHP-FPM versions in Watchdog Monitoring extension

    The following User Voice request was rejected long time ago: https://plesk.uservoice.com/forums/184549-feature-suggestions/suggestions/35256088

    However, it is a must that the Watchdog Monitoring extension would allow the Plesk administrator to monitor the additional Plesk PHP-FPM versions.

    As per now, going to Extensions > My Extensions > Watchdog, it only supports OS PHP-FPM.

    The additional Plesk PHP-FPM handlers are part of Plesk and this request should be considered by the developers.

    The following workaround allows the monitoring but it is not possible to manage it from Plesk GUI: https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000584394

  4. Possibility to manage time syncronization in Plesk on Debian 10 / Ubuntu 20 / CentOS 8

    Plesk supports Debian 10, Ubuntu 20 and CentOS 8, but currently it's not possible to manage network time settings in Tools & Setting > System Date and Time > Network Time on these operating systems.

    Despite of having native systemd-timesyncd.service (that manages time syncing out of the box), it would be easier to manage NTP time settings using Plesk interface.

  6. Add the "Switch View" button in Plesk interface for Resellers

    When logged in to the panel as the Administrator, it is possible to switch between Service Provider and Power User views using a button in the bottom left corner.

    However, this button is missing when logged in as a Reseller. It is still possible to switch the view via Tools & Settings > Interface Preferences, but it is not as convenient.

    Please add the "Switch View" button for Resellers as well.

  9. Plesk backups scheduling by default after plesk installation without any request to change

    On any Plesk server 18.0.29 has been installed by default recently (ie fresh install), Plesk has been enabling backups by default to run every night. We can't see any notification of this change of behavior in the release notes. It should be possible to decide to enable backup on initial Plesk installation as this of course uses significant disk space, this has caused us considerable disruption and cost.

  10. Configure default View Mode for the Resellers and Customers

    Plesk Obsidian introduced the Dynamic List View Mode and some of our customers are having problems understanding the new GUI.

    It would be very helpful to configure the View Mode at the Service Plan level:
    - Disable the possibility to change the View Mode
    - Configure a default View Mode

  11. Make it easy to

    Make it easy to get to file manager instead of playing hide and seek.

  13. Locale management directly from Plesk panel

    Suggested feature implementation would allow to create custom locales from panel interface. Including database in an implementation should secure custom locales from being overwritten during updates.
    Client's business environment will gain in easiness of management and consistency.

    Customers with international clientele would benefit from it.

  14. Make mass selection for files and folders

    When I need to select several files or folders I have to select them one by one. Could you add a feature to select several files by holding Shift button, for example?
