As you work in the SAP Community platform, you may be a little confused about the author levels in the new system. The new author level system is designed to help grow the quality of our Community content. Here’s a simple breakdown of how the new blogger levels work.

1.) Subscriber: This step allows new users to get acclimated to the Community and learn how to create valuable content. New member accounts start automatically at this level. Subscribers can comment on posts, but cannot create new blog posts. A Subscriber must complete 1 of 2 tasks to become a Contributor:
(a) Follow this blog post AND follow a tag of your choosing;
OR
(b) Follow this blog post AND follow another member of the Community.

These tasks are designed to help you learn your way around the Community and some of the engagement features you’ll be utilizing to connect with content and other users.

2.) Contributor: The Contributor level allows the user to try out their hand at content creation. Contributors can create their own blog posts, but they must work with a moderator to publish their content.

3.) Author: When the Contributor successfully publishes two blog posts, they automatically become an Author, capable of publishing their own content independently.

So what happens to existing users when we migrate to the new Community?

If you have two or more published blog posts in SCN (not counting personal blogs or coffee corner posts), you will become an Author in the new Community. With less than two posts, you will join the new Community as a Contributor.

    Hi Jamie,

    I would like to post a thread in SAP forum. The topic is related to ABAP development.

    It will be helpful if you provide me a correct platform or a link to post my thread. Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Shan.

          Thanks @Juergen L! So, Kavitha, because we do not have account linking in place, you’ll need to start with the process outlined above. It would be a good refresher for you any way, as it’s been a while since you’ve written for the Community.

          Best,

      Hi John,

      Please try clearing your cache, logging out, closing your browser, reopening and logging back in. Let me know if this doesn’t resolve the issue. You should be able to create your blog post, but you’ll still need a moderator to review the post before it is published (hit the Submit for Review button when you’re ready to publish).

      Best,

      Jamie

      Hi Tsogdelger,

      I don’t see that you’ve followed anyone. Are you following a tag? Are you following this blog post? Please give me some more details about the steps you’ve taken. Thanks!

      Hi Emma,

      I see you followed me – great! Did you also follow this blog post?  If so, please try clearing your cache, logging out, closing your browser, reopening and logging back in. You should now be a Contributor, which means you’ll be able to create your blog post, but you’ll still need a moderator to review the post before it is published (hit the Submit for Review button when you’re ready to publish).

      Let me know if you’re still experiencing issues.

      Best,

      Jamie

      In the menu, which is visible on any page you are, move the mouse to communities and then see the yellow section with  “quick start guide” which is this link https://www.sap.com/community/getting-started.html

      There scroll down to the section about tags, you can find written instructions as well as video instruction

    Hello!
    Could not tell me by completing the task. SAP PI for me is a completely new sphere of activity.

    There are two tables in the PISANDBOX database

    PERSWORK
    PERSINFO

    It is necessary to configure a new element from the PERSWORK table in PERSINFO. New entries have a NEW NULL field.
    Configure Mapping:
    1. FAM + NAME -> FULLNAME
    2. If the HIREDATE is filled, then in STATE send “H”, if FIREDATE, then “F”
    3. Fill in the fields COMPANY, POSITION

      Hi Ivan,

      You should try searching the Q&A part of the site (answers.sap.com) to see if you can find an answer to your question. If not, then please post it as a new question there. You will not get answers in comments to this blog post.

    Hello,

     

    I have followed the author of this post + a secondary member of the community & have yet to receive publishing rights. Is there a way to accelerate this process?

     

    Thanks,

    1. Jamie Cantrell Post author

      Hi Sebastien,

      Did you follow this blog post (not the author, but the post itself)? That’s step 1. The upgrade of your authorizations will then occur automatically.

      Best,

      Jamie
