    Hi,

    Last time I checked, mobile app ‘SAP Support desk’ couldn’t be used for customers with with “standard” support contract: that could be worth mentioning. Plus, I would add that doing your homework (searching for notes, scn, etc.) and writing the best customer incident won’t be vain only once every 10 incidents… because to be honest whatever you do there’s a better chance you’ll end here:

    Just for fun… a day in my life 😉

    Regards,

    Nick.
