Last night after a really great SAP Inside Track NL I set together with Tobias Trapp in the hotel bar, telling him what my vision of what a really cool help portal is. (Please also read his post on What is “Smart Documentation”?)
I want to share my ideas with you too. Maybe they can help to improve the SAP Help Portal even more.
So if I had a wish free, I really would like the SAP Help Portal to become a personal documentation. My vision is that I could login to it with my own (SDN-) User and save my own bookmarks. Today I save my most often used documentation in the bookmarks of my browser. But in a customer’s place I cannot always use my own PC. So for me it would be good to have my own favorite documentation links in the portal.
Also it could be helpful, if I could tell the help system, which SAP systems I am working with and it then only shows me the related help information.
Furthermore I would like toadd my own additional information, which relates the documentation to my own business context. E.g. as an ABAPer I would like to add my own sample code or give a cross reference to the SDN.
Also it would be nice to share this information to other users.
And a really good functionality would be if I could make my own notes in the F1-Help of a data field and/or enrich it with the company’s information’s from the business context.
