I am Dedi Metser and I have been with the SAP Community team since 2006.
Recently, I took over the search of community ownership, so what I’m about to tell you is happy news. We are launching the new search user interface today.
After listening to the community members’ requests for improvement, we have made changes to our look and feel and UI to improve and unify the search experience in the community.
We are happy to announce that the launch of a new search will improve not only the UI but also your ability to find the content you’re looking for here in the community.
So what is different?
This is the new look and feel of the new search across the community:
I chose to search for ABAP. After a drop-down menu will appear with a list of what terms are affiliated with ABAP. After clicking a search term, on the right-hand side you will find 3 filters:
Type, Date, and Language.
Type, that allows you to choose the type of content you are looking for across repositories. There are a lot of options here
so we will filter by only two: Blogs and Questions.
Choosing Blogs will generate these filters:
Choosing Questions will generate these filters. Here you will notice that you can choose the Questions Status as well.
Date that is sorted by different options
The Languages filter allow you to choose the language of your choice.
All these filters and options will give you a much better search experience and help you find the information you need faster and more efficiently.
I’d like to add a special shootout thanking @Jason Lax and @Mike Riley for their input and guidance.
We are looking forward to your comments and feedback here.
