Hello Everyone,

Recently there was announcement ‘The future of SAP Community‘ from Bill McDermott on SAP Community regarding upcoming changes in SAP community. In short SAP Community will have new leadership.

He mentioned in his blog that current community enhancement was “honest mistakes made with good intentions” and almost every SCN member can say YES to this comment. If someone say NO! I like to ask them… Did you use community in past (before design change)? If answer is YES, then why we are going away with this new community??? Only because of its design?

There is always learning opportunities behind mistakes (This is the way I see them). Well I am not going to discuss too much here about what is right and wrong for you. My primary intention of writing this blog is to make everyone aware that we are not 100% correct all the time…

 

Let me give you very good example…

This example is applicable to SCN (Past) and SAP Community (Present)

 

Suppose there is a wonderful blog about ‘A’ topic and you got some knowledge out of it. Well this is something good that you are gaining knowledge of it but WE start asking question on comment section of blog and start discussing problems related to blog ‘A’

We have entire section for asking question. Don’t you think posting your question in right section will help other SAP community members? This way we are keeping our home clean and tidy.

We recently seen this blog post about new changes to SAP Community redesign. Sneak Peek: 2018 SAP Community Redesign By Jamie Cantrell 

I know there is some challenges in question answer section and there is lots discussion going around answer vs comment but hopefully that will be shorted out with new SAP Community design.

My only intention here to let our SAP community members know we all are on same boat and we don’t want to let ‘our’ boat sink.

 

Last but not least… Attaching couple of good blogs links about upcoming SAP Community changes…

As per Jerry Janda comment (down below in comment section) adding some more useful links to this blog about SAP Community update and communication update. (Now we don’t need to scroll down 🙂 ) Thanks Jerry Janda

  • The Community Updates page lists all of the posts related to platform fixes, new features, and planning/strategy — going all the way back to the relaunch in 2016. It contains links to most of the posts you mention, plus many more.
  • SAP Community: Communications Updates is a wiki page where I highlight the latest posts — such as those found on the aforementioned updates page, as well as posts recognizing members. Since it’s a wiki page, people can “watch” it — so they’ll get updates whenever I add new items.

Thank you taking time and reading this blog and stay tuned 🙂

      I am trying to keep things tidy. I rather give feedback than complain. Create idea rather leaving community… there is so many great things you can do to make it happen. It’s not only me who can make change… it’s all of us..

      Cheers

        Perfect – thank you! I agree, I’m trying to be positive now. However, if there is a huge issue, I’d rather have people talk about it than leave the community.  Let’s try to get it fixed AND try to be positive.

    Thanks for this, Yogesh!

    If I may add a few other links that you and other members might find informative:

    • The Community Updates page lists all of the posts related to platform fixes, new features, and planning/strategy — going all the way back to the relaunch in 2016. It contains links to most of the posts you mention, plus many more.
    • SAP Community: Communications Updates is a wiki page where I highlight the latest posts — such as those found on the aforementioned updates page, as well as posts recognizing members. Since it’s a wiki page, people can “watch” it — so they’ll get updates whenever I add new items.

    That’s my part in the community: keeping everyone informed, getting feedback, and taking the occasional lump. 🙂
