SAP Enable Now extension is now the Enablement Assistant extension

Hello SAP Enable Now community!

The preview release for SAP Enable Now 2005 is live!

One of the exciting new features coming out with the 2005 release for SAP Enable Now is the support for Microsoft Edge 80 based on Chromium.

With this new feature, we also introduced a new extension called “Enablement Assistant“.

This should be installed automatically when downloading the Producer, Instant Producer or Desktop Assistant and is installed in both your Chrome and Edge browsers. You can also manually install this extension from the Chrome Web Store or Microsoft Store (coming soon).

This new “Enablement Assistant” extension includes small optimizations for recording and rerecording in Chrome and a brand new extension version for Edge.

The extensions on both browsers are necessary for recording and rerecording as well as for Desktop Assistant playback.

If you have installed the new “Enablement Assistant”, you don’t need to have the “SAP Enable Now” extension installed in parallel in Chrome.

By the way, did you know that with the 2005 release it will be possible to set the SAP Enable Now default browser to the system default browser? Check out Tools > Settings > General > Preferred Internet Browser to change your setting.

Take care,

Kristina

Enable yourself. Now.

  • Hello Kristina,

    Is there a mass deployment guide available for this new version?  Like an MSI package?   Don’t want to ask 80,000+ users to install this manually 😉

     

    Thanks for the post,

    Erik

     

    • Hi Erik,

      the SAP Enable Now extension will be installed automatically when users start the Producer, Instant Producer or Desktop Assistant from the Cloud.

      This is from the What’s New guide: “The enhancement can be activated during the installation of Producer, Instant Producer, and Desktop Assistant, or manually installed via the Microsoft Store.”

      So right now there is no .msi that we deliver separately. If you see any issues with your users not being able to automatically install it with the desktop component launches, please contact support.

      Take care,

      Kristina
