[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 - got migrated to HANA:

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

Best regards

    There I fixed it.

    • Sep 21, 2017 at 01:15 PM

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

    • Sep 21, 2017 at 01:49 PM

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

    • Oct 05, 2017 at 11:35 AM

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

    • Oct 20, 2017 at 12:33 PM

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

  • Sep 21, 2017 at 04:55 PM

    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?

      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:

    • Sep 22, 2017 at 04:04 PM

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


    • Sep 22, 2017 at 07:52 PM

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

  • Oct 05, 2017 at 11:31 AM

    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!

    • Oct 06, 2017 at 07:15 AM

      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...

    • Oct 19, 2017 at 02:31 PM

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


    • Oct 19, 2017 at 03:36 PM

      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 :( ).

      • Oct 20, 2017 at 03:37 PM

        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 ;)

        • Oct 23, 2017 at 06:20 PM

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

          • Oct 24, 2017 at 01:12 PM

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

  • Oct 19, 2017 at 09:59 AM

    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

    • Oct 19, 2017 at 03:39 PM

      Shouldn't it be at least "Willkommen"?

    • Oct 23, 2017 at 08:14 AM

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

  • Oct 21, 2017 at 10:13 PM

    I tried to go to the forums. Success.

      Achievement unlocked.

    • Oct 23, 2017 at 08:14 AM

      So... congrats? ^^

      • Oct 23, 2017 at 11:09 AM

        Do I get a badge? :-)

        • Oct 23, 2017 at 11:21 AM

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

          • Oct 23, 2017 at 01:53 PM

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

            Is that an attempt at empathy?

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


      btw: I still see the text. IE11.

      • Nov 08, 2017 at 03:48 PM

        yes the text is back in Chrome too, now.

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

        • Nov 08, 2017 at 03:50 PM

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

      • Nov 08, 2017 at 06:24 PM

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

    • Nov 08, 2017 at 06:21 PM

      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 ( when the comment gods decided we were worthy of words again...
