Note Assistant Made Easy

Happy New Year to everyone! I am delighted to share some great news to start off this Year. The well-known Note Assistant tool is now more intuitive, simplified, customizable and provides a new user experience!!  Watch the video giving you a glimpse of the enhancements.

The Note Assistant (transaction SNOTE) enables you to download, display, implement and de-implement SAP Notes. Note Assistant has been there for quite a while and has gone through as many enhancements. Over the last few years, we have been consolidating feedback from our customers and end users, in addition to which we collaborated closely with customers through a Customer engagement initiative (CEI) project. As part of CEI, we conducted customer interviews and workshops to gather concrete feedback, outside of which our experiences based on  customer support and internal feedback was also considered. Based on the comprehensive feedback, we worked on the design and revalidated the same through CEI engagements. At DSAG 2019 Usability testing of the enhancements gave us fruitful insights and we received extensive feedback. Our aim has been to address these collective pain points in the revamped tool.

      Thanks a lot.

      There's a small typo, note 3054166 is mentioned in the text instead of 3051466.

      Best regards
