​[Status Update] ‘past me’ knew the answer (Knowledge-Management)

I'm happy that I just had another case of "An Answer I gave in the past is helping me now"!

It's this one in case you’re interested:

(funny to notice that it's still "active" somehow, as only 16 hours ago someone added another "answer".

and: not so funny that while I feel it's a pretty "helpful answer" (it helped me twice, and at least some other person as documented in the comment) id didn't get "accepted" (yet).


I didn't bother with searching, but just went through the list of my answers, but actually searching for "UKM_PI008" gives pretty good results (it's the 3rd hit),.

    What can I say? Some people just won't RTFM...

    To be fair, this specific error caused me a lot of grief, when I last played with FIN-FSCM-CM. It is challenging for functional consultants to switch the mindset from SD Credit Management to this approach (despite the available documentation from 2315269) and rely sometimes on BASIS people to help with part of the setup.

    But yes, sometimes also I end up digging out my own answers or the documentation, which I have written for others, because I didn't bother memorizing...

    Happens to me on a regular basis TBH. Both, my answers not getting credit, although high quality and sometimes even exclusive and searching for something and finding an answer given by myself on SCN X years ago. SCN really serves as a kind of personally created "KBA-Database" for me.

    On the other hand that also means, if the content on SCN should ever be wiped and Google is shut down, I'm screwed.

      Yep. Those naive people think I'm helping them but I'm just creating a personal KBA database. :)

      P.S. Since Google shutdown would put out of business the whole "dear gurus" industry, I think you'll still come out ahead in the end. :)
