  1. Implement an Auto-Update function for Skins

    Since the release of Obsidian, every new microupdate changed significant CSS classes in the Skins, which required our custom skin to be edited each time. However there is no way to deploy the new versions automatically.

    My suggestion: Implement a way for Skins to be auto-updated.
    The meta.xml-File in the skin could contain a new field like "official_url", which is then regularily checked for a newer version, than the one currently installed.

    This is about shipping Plesk with email notification messages translated into all supported languages. Let’s find out how important this feature is for out customers. Please vote this request up to let us know you need it.

    As a temporary workaround, Plesk administrators can provide their own custom translations in Tools & Settings / Notifications.

  4. 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. 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.

  7. Have some setting to limit days and timeframe of any updates

    To have some settings to limit any kind of updates to be installed in the server like:
    Day of the week, hour timeframe.
    There's such settings in panel.ini but only for Plesk updates. I'm missing the same for System Updates and Hotfixes.

    Currently, only major updates can be scheduled as described in https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/12377016862103-How-to-manage-date-and-time-for-Plesk-autoupdates- and the forum thread https://talk.plesk.com/threads/update-times.355417/. System package updates and minor updates are not affected.

    This feature asks to also provide a setting where sytsem package updates and minor Plesk updates can be scheduled. This is a valid request. We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it is popular. Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.

  12. Customize columns in site list

    Would be great to allow selecting what columns to display in the Domains or Site list.

    Column suggestions:

    • Site name (user customizable)
    • Domain name
    • Type
    • Status
    • PHP version
    • Server (apache/nginx)
    • Location (if multiple site locations are allowed)
    • Traffic
    • Size (including files + database, why is it always calculating incorrectly for subdomains?)
    • URL
    • wp-admin url if wordpress
    • Wordpress toolkit link - directly to this site
    • Date created
    • SSL status

  13. Limit Service Plans management to Additional Administrators (Restricted Mode) and Resellers

    We are trying to create an Additional Administrator with Restricted Mode or Resellers but it's not possible to restrict those users to manage the Service Plans.

    It would be great to add the possibility to hide the Service Plans option in the menu by restricting their permissions.

  14. 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

  17. Add enabling "Keep websites secured" with all options via CLI

    Suggest adding the CLI commands for enabling "Keep websites secured" and all four options:
    "Include the "www" subdomain"
    "Secure domain aliases"
    "Secure webmail"
    "Secure mail"
    in SSL/TLS certificates.
    It would enhance the advanced administration of SSL certificates, especially beneficial on servers with large amount of domains.

  18. Use colored icons for the new Domains view

    Since Plesk Obsidian 18.0.38, the Domains menu has been updated and the icons have been replaced with black-and-white design.

    Please bring back the colored icons or add an option to switch between the old and new style.

  19. List active SFTP sessions in Plesk UI

    Currently Plesk administrator is able to see active FTP sessions in Plesk interface. It would be nice monitoring feature to add if the same could be done with active SFTP sessions.

  20. 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.
