The SAP S/4HANA Cloud What’s New Viewer: A Tool to Help you Run Simple

At SAP we are committed to help you make the most out of your business. We want to make you run dynamically, yet simple and highly automated. How do we do this? By always listening to you, our customers, and partners. We listen to feedback and work hard every quarter to deliver the capabilities you demand and need. This is the reason our scope grows with every release. We want to make sure you benefit from all our developments and give you a transparent overview of what they are.

With the SAP S/4HANA Cloud What’s New Viewer, we offer an easy way to stay informed on our latest scope.  Be it a technical or functional consultant, business stakeholders, or user experience consultants—many can benefit from this tool.


The What’s New Viewer gives you not only a quick look into the new features of your SAP S/4HANA Cloud apps, but it also shows you changed, deleted, and deprecated features. You can view innovations for a single version or for several relevant versions at the same time. Details such as line of business, solution capability and solution area can be easily filtered. This also includes scope items and the application component. With the search bar you can type keywords that quickly narrow down what you are looking for.

By clicking the “See More” link, you will find details about the feature including effects on existing data, data transfer, system administration or the system configuration, extra references to product assistance, the SAP Best Practice Explorer, relevant SAP notes, and much more.

With the “Select columns” functions, you can also select or deselect information as you want to see it. Once you have selected and refined the content relevant for you, you can share it via email or print it by importing your selection into a csv format spread sheet or a PDF file. All of which facilitates the way you can work with this information within your team.



In addition to this viewer, customers and partners with valid S-users can access a preview of What’s New for an upcoming release up to a month in advance. This exclusive peek at upcoming features can help you plan and decide on an upgrade of your current release.

To find the What’s New Viewer, just visit our SAP S/4HANA Cloud Help Portal page and check the What’s New tab. Use the viewer and see just how easy it can be to improve the way you can work with SAP S/4HANA Cloud. A What’s New Viewer is also available for SAP S/4HANA and can be found on the SAP S/4HANA Help Portal page.

We’ve developed this tool with you in mind: We want to revolutionize the way you do business, and to support you in every way we can. Leave us a comment below and let us know about your experience of working with the What’s New Viewer. By using the What’s New Viewer’s many features, we hope to improve the way you work and interact with SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

      What's new Viewer is very useful and well done.

      I would appreciate the availability of a permanent URL (Alias URL - Friendly Path Names), something like to jump directly in the latest version of a given product.

      A Share button would also be nice to avoid manual URL copy&past but what to say: What's new Viewer rocks
