[Status Update] Best of status updates @ SAP

Hello friends of sap community,

humour@sap is gone, but I think we should collect the best status updates somewhere.

I'll start with the following 2:

The classic launchpad welcome message (as seen many times - everybody knows it)

or the next - help.sap.com got migrated to HANA:

;-) there are many more - please share what you got!

Best regards

There I fixed it.

But now it looks as if you are planning to hang Capra!

My skills are not advanced enough to remove the rope, so let's go with what Lukas Weigelt said.

It's like "Don't write angry mails to the support center, or We'll hang the goat!"

7 Share

"Open the system connection or the goat gets it!" :)

poor little goat thingy - has to suffer for everything that's gone wrong at SCN :-)

Capra is meant to bring happiness to people, and to remind us that even if the platform is not what we want, hopefully we can rebuild an ENTIRE COMMUNITY OF GOAT-LOVERS oooops, I mean rebuild our great community.

Are we not just goad-ing users by suggesting SAP don't even feel sheepish about the issue?

Obviously I added the Red text in the middle of the screen capture, but does 'no message' also count in your request for status update screens?

of course it does! - It's like the "SAP One Support launchpad" message telling you there are some small performance problems (the one in the bottom/left corner that can be closed) but the launchpad stays empty - although you need it badly because of high prio Incidents! :-)

I don't know how and why I got this one:

Yes, this IE version was experimental, why would you use it ?

:)

0 Share

I would say you can only respond to some questions with "compatibility mode on" otherwise your answer will not be understood

0 Share

ok, one more for your pleasure

- the wiki/confluence:

Planned downtime 12.09.2017 7am-8am - picture was taken 18.09.2017 ;-)

best regards!

and the last one for the german speaking guys&girls at Walldorf:

The "installing fiori apps on premise is a piece of cake" message:

Have a good day!

0 Share

Reminds me of Churchill's "Don't interrupt me while I'm interrupting."...

Thank you so much.

A nice one from today when I tried to add a link to a SAP note in an answer:

UX at its finest...

I'm getting this one today with ANY URL I try to link to. :(

0 Share

Does your url contain special symbols?

0 Share

There are a number of + symbols - I was trying to link to a couple of SAP Wiki docs...

0 Share

Two options then (if you still wish to edit the text):

Option 1 example:

How to analyze the creation of a billing document

Substitute '+' with '%20'. I use notepad for this.

Option 2 example:

How to analyze the creation of a billing document

Use a URL shortener.

Within the wiki, press the 'K' key and you'll get a convenient popup menu for copying the short URL and not the long wordy ones with symbols.

This is a really cool tip! I did not know that...

0 Share

Glad it was helpful. Of course there are other intriguing bits of information behind the "..." button in the header, and Page Information, but the keyboard trick is actually 'Link to this Page...'

0 Share

Cool. Thanks Jeremy!

0 Share

I had the same problem with SCN wiki URLs. Looks like special symbols (+, I guess) do not sit well with some new validation. Already mentioned it here (ugh, the URL pop-up now makes my eyes bleed all the time :( ).

0 Share

Sorry, forgot to at mention you in my comments above - realizing that you are one notification degree removed from the tip I was sharing above ^^ and get no push notification as to my sharing of the keyboard trick. This nudge should suffice ;)

1 Share

Thank you, Jeremy! I very much wish we didn't have to spend our energy on working around this platform, sigh...

1 Share

In a twisted sense of humor, I suppose the extra energy output does lead to active community and collaboration :)

I got a new "Welcome" message at the SAP ONE Support Launchpad, I guess this was made only for me ;-) (have a look at the background for the error message)

best regards

1 Share

Shouldn't it be at least "Willkommen"?

3 Share

I love the english-german "Mischmasch". Looks like launchpad can't decide with language it wants to show you.

0 Share

I tried to go to the forums. Success.

Achievement unlocked.

So... congrats? ^^

0 Share

Do I get a badge? :-)

0 Share

I don't think so. But it's kind of ironic that "success" and "result" are in quotes. :D

0 Share

Ah, so that's actually an astonished/frustrated/aaargh emoticon at the end of the message!

Is that an attempt at empathy?

0 Share

speechless?

Well, after so many years there is nothing left to say to eachother.

.

btw: I still see the text. IE11.

1 Share

yes the text is back in Chrome too, now.

Maybe they tested to get more content in one page....

1 Share

Or worked they worked on the design... white text on white background.

1 Share

Yeah, we might as well be like in that anecdote: a group of old friends telling jokes by just mentioning the number. :)

0 Share

Oh, yeah, that stopped my heart for a couple minutes earlier, causing a mad scramble to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it.

I'm just glad it didn't last long. I was in the middle of a twitter discussion with Steve (https://twitter.com/steverumsby/status/928271945937965057) when the comment gods decided we were worthy of words again...
