A chance to make help ‘helpful’

Wish that help could be more helpful?  Do you have an opinion on what’s presented when you press ‘ALT-HELP’ in SAP BusinessObjects?  You’ve got ideas of what in-product education should include?  Good!  Then you should plan on attending the kick-off of ASUG’s SAP BusinessObjects Online and In-Product Education Influence Council. SAP wants to hear from you on how to make the in product (and some out of product) education of SAP BusinessObjects BI 4 better!  

This is your opportunity to give your opinion on BI4’s eLearning modules.  What?  You don’t happen to have BI4 installed yet?  Don’t let that dissuade you from attending the kick-off webcast and filling out an interest survey.  If selected for the council, you will have the opportunity to see those training materials for yourself!  And then (in my humble opinion) comes the best part of being part of an Influence Council: telling SAP what you think.  Did you like something?  Was a topic not covered in enough detail to make a user comfortable?  Do you think that there was too much detail paid to a certain feature at the expense of another?  This is your chance to be completely honest and help shape these education offerings. 

Of course, for every good deal there’s some fine print:

  1. You must be a member of ASUG to participate in the council.  Sorry about that, folks.
  2. You must register to attend the webcast or fill out the survey form (available after the kickoff) to be considered. 
  3. You must listen to my guest appearance on the Diversified Semantic Layer podcast to hear more details.
Well, number 3 isn’t really required, but if you made it this far you should just go ahead and listen.  On a parting note, this Influence Council is one of the first achievements of the ASUG BusinessObjects Strategic SIG.  They’re listening to voice of SAP BusinessObjects customers and are working directly with SAP to keep an open line of communication going.  As for me?  I am definitely looking forward to this influence council!  Hope to see you on August 8th.
