I'm trying today.. I really am...

Ok.. I understand the tagging. But when I search say a published tag like "PLM Quality Management (QM)" I get over 1000 hits. It starts with stuff from the archives in like 2008. Now I know I'll see activity in the moderation area for things that require moderation.

But how is one to follow a given area? I follow a bunch of people, I follow a bunch of areas. I could have 100 new items in my activity stream. Which I like to glance at an look at. But I want to make sure I see every posting related to QM.

How is that possible? If I'm travelling and unable to check for a couple of days, I'm not sure how I'll see a question in QM that never hits the moderation queue. If I come in on Monday and want to see all postings since Friday in QM how would I query for that?

I like seeing new comments and activity in my spaces. But if I follow too much, I can see right now that I could miss a ton of stuff.

Or am I missing something?

    You can follow the "PLM Quality Management (QM)" tag. This might fulfill your requirement.

      Oh I can follow it alright.. no problem with that.

      But everything I follow is in my activity stream. In a weekend I might have 100's of item's in it. I'm not going through all of it Monday morning. Maybe some. Just following Juergen can give you a hundred hits!!!

      If I search for content with "PLM Quality Management (QM)" you get everything from the archives.

      So how do I search for all answers/comments/blogs with the tag "PLM Quality Management (QM)" that was posted over the past say 3 days?

        Use Google? *SCNR*

          I think you will need to wait for a few days until Google manages to index the content, and you still need to enter some search criteria, it won't work as a generic query.

          @Craig :If you have a specific search criteria in mind, I can try to get you some url from with a list of tags and the date range, optionally with visible filters by content type (answers, blogs, archive), but even the new answers are not yet properly indexed as answer type in the SAP search. This means that in the best possible scenario you could use such url reliably after a few more days or a week.

            It doesn't lool like "PLM Quality Management (QM)" is set up as a community. For instance, it looks like SD has a community that you can filter on and then sort by created date and updated date.

            I don't see the same functionality for QM.

            Since it is only a tag, I think it will be difficult to accurately follow.

            Thank you for the offer, if you have something that you think works, I'm open to it.

            Right now, I think it's going to be very hard for users to even figure out what to tag their questions with to make sure the subject experts see it.

              You could bookmark the tag page. At least then you have direct access to all the content that was posted with that tag without scrolling through your activity stream. But the filter options are very limited right now, so "last 3 days" will still mean "read the timestamps".

            • Oct 10, 2016 at 05:48 PM

              Yep, I get what you're saying. I'm used to going to a "page" for a space (in the old terminology) and seeing the blogs and questions for that space. I haven't figured out how to do that for a tag, so instead I have a wildly busy activity stream, and I don't feel that I have a handle on how to navigate it effectively.

    Even forgetting timeframe is there a way to search questions by tag? I can't find it from the q&a link under community. It only allows me to filter answered and unanswered.

    /rant I can't log out from chrome without clearing my session (plausibly I need to change settings) and finally why doesn't pressing enter take my cursor to the next line until I type more. It's really throwing me for a loop.

      There was an option in Beta for some of the repositories to use SM_TECH_IDS parameter in the URL, which is basically the technical tag ID behind, e.g. SD Sales and Distribution is 209057551571413566377230676804921. Unfortunately, it seems, they have either removed this possibility after the launch (I get errors like repository ONEDX does not exist or just the repositories I try, do not contain this 'extra') or they have even bigger issues with the migration...

      Very, very disappointing... sorry that I provided misleading information. Now I am going through multiple discussions one by one like everybody else (reading information on IDOC development) and hoping that my browser won't crash before I finish:

      Crashes start usually after 1.5 GB, but I have now only 7 tabs open (only SCN content), previously I had 15-20 SCN tabs using less memory.

    Hello Craig.

    I share your frustation with this new site, as all my queries only return "Archived" Discussion Threads.

    But after looking at many pages of current Questions, I did a right click (open in new tab) on the tag that was attached to a Question in my field of expertise

    and there I found the page for "All Questions in HCM..." and quickly bookmarked it.

    Now I only have to find Questions with tags on my other fields of interest and bookmark them, until SAP figures out that a filter on tags would be useful.

    Try the same for your fields of interest/expertise.

      Yep, did about the same thing.

      What you can do is post a question yourself with the tag you want. Display it. Bookmark it. Than delete the question you posted. That's what several folks had to do to find the area of their tag.
