  2. 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

  4. code editor should include features like - intellisense, linter, snippets & syntax support

    IntelliSense Technology:

    is the general term for a number of features: Quick Info, and auto completion/correction, that help in keeping track of the parameters you are typing, and add calls to properties and methods with only a few keystrokes.

    Code Linting:
    is the process of running a program that will analyse code for potential errors. lint was the name originally given to a particular program that flagged some suspicious and non-portable constructs (likely to be bugs) in C language source code.

    Syntax Support:

    associates a set of nested statements, in certain code, that is delimited.

    Code Snippets:
    is a small…

  5. Monitoring Mailbox activity

    Feature in Plesk GUI to monitor Mailboxes activity:
    - Know which mailboxes didn't have activity in a specific period of time. For example, this would be useful to clean up mailboxes without activity.
    - Know which mailboxes activity with forwarding enabled in a specific period of time.
    - Possibility to cleanup selected mailboxes from same GUI.

  6. Add ability to manage additional users in Plesk Multi Server

    It is already included in roadmap for Plesk Multi Server
    https://docs.plesk.com/en-US/onyx/multi-server-guide/about-plesk-multi-server/roadmap.77464/
    However, it would be great to prioritize implementation of the feature, since it one of the basic functionality of managing accounts and users

  8. Visible Logout button

    Min. 95% of all users and clients do not logout from Plesk panel correctly.
    They only close the site - which causes unnecessary processes, - and security problems, e.g. when users do not logout in internet cafes or similar.
    Please realize a good visible logout button!

  9. Autosave a shadow copy (local storage perhaps) of an ongoing edited file to prevent data loss in case of session timeout

    My suggestion lies on the fact that I indeed lost my work on a php file that was open in the code editor, when I absent-mindedly pushed the "Apply" button on the text editor and realized with horror that my admin session timed out and I was returned to the unmodified version of the file once logged back in.

    It would be convenient to autosave in the background ongoing changes of a text file that is bound to change once opened in the editor, in order to prevent data loss.

  10. Hide "Location of the website's files" field when there is just one subscription.

    In most cases, our customers have only one subscription, on which mostly several domains run.

    If another domain is added via the "Add Domain" dialog, the dropdown field "Location of the website's files" appears in the form.

    This makes absolute sense if a customer has several subscriptions. However, if the customer only has one subscription, this is very confusing.

    We are often asked by our customers, if the existing data of the other domain (main domain as subscription) is overwritten, because it is not obvious to the customer that he has only one subscription and the value in the field…

  13. ability to change IP for particular domain

    Currently, in Plesk it possible to change IP only on subscription level. As a result, the IP is changed for all domains under subscription. The ability to change IP on domain level would be very useful

  14. Show File Name And Selected File Number

    When the user tried to delete file(s) via "Files" tab, it says that:
    Are you sure you want to permanently remove the selected files and directories?

    There is no information about file name and selected file numbers.

    So the users may not sure what they delete.

    Show file name and selected file numbers before deleting.

  15. Extract ZIP to a different directory

    In the file manager, when extracting a ZIP archive, the modal window should not only indicate the target directory, but also allow to change it.

  16. Postfix prefered ip

    Our suggestion is add an UI element to user area, where end user can change preferred outgoing ip for domain - ipv4 or ipv6. Without mail server config hacks from server admins.

  17. Plesk-wide maintenance mode

    At times it takes quite significant time to perform plesk in-place upgrade. During this time all sites are down and plesk control panel is down as well.

    It would be good to have plesk-wide maintenance mode for such occasions that would display a nice maintenance or upgrade notice page that would be displayed to whoever accesses the sites hosted in plesk or plesk control panel itself.

  19. To make Website Preview on the domain name in Plesk using the valis SSL certificate

    Currently, Website Preview on the domain name is using the domain certificate, which raises certificate warnings in web browser.
    For previewed domains, which does not have the certificate defined, the default server certificate is used.
    However, even if the wildcard certificate for the domain name on which websites are previewed is used as a default one, it still does not cover the resulting URLs on which websites are previewed.
    That raises SSL warnings issue for new domains, which redirect to HTTPS according to settings in Plesk or website code itself.
