SMS Notifications for SAP ONE Support Launchpad
To enhance the customer experience, we are adding a new method to push critical and value add information to customers via SMS (text messaging).
In addition to e-mail and launchpad-internal notifications, the SAP ONE Support Launchpad now offers text messages (SMS) as a new way to receive important notices and information. To enable text message notifications, go to your launchpad notifications settings page, choose your preferred notification method (launchpad, email, SMS or a combination), and then simply select the notice types you would like to receive. It’s fast. It’s easy. And it’s customizable.
How to change your notification settings
By default, SAP ONE Support Launchpad users will NOT have SMS enabled and will have to opt-in to have text messages sent for each type of notification. To do so, access the Manage Notifications interface in the launchpad, either by entering the URL https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notification/manage or by clicking the drop down menu from your user name and then Manage Notifications. Here you can toggle on or off notifications for launchpad, email and SMS.
NOTE: SAP does not charge you to send SMS text messages, however message and data rates may apply based on your existing wireless plan for receiving text messages.
How to add or change your mobile phone settings
In order to receive SMS notifications, you must have a mobile phone number configured in the user profile application.
To maintain your phone number(s), access the User Profile interface in the launchpad, either by entering the URL: https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/user/profile or by selecting the Settings icon in the upper-right corner of the Notification Settings window. Here you can choose which phone number to use for SMS notification. To continue to the User Profile, choose your user profile.
Here you can select Edit Header to add or edit your phone number 1 and phone number 2.
