Just saw this in my Activity stream:

Have I missed an announcement?

    And now this:

    I'm starting to feel left out... :-)

  • Mar 28 at 08:51 AM

    click your avatar and find a new missions entry in the menu

    • Mar 28 at 08:58 AM

      Thank you!

    • Mar 28 at 09:06 AM

      While the entry is there (after opting out to some new Cookies and a separate login to sap.com), it does not Show any missions in the list ("my missions").

      Are there any entries at your account?

      Update: after liking your entry and commenting on it (don't know what triggered it) some missions do now show up in my missions list.

        Spread the news that people only get to the missions if they like a reply from me ;-)

        • Mar 28 at 09:17 AM

          Worked for me at least...

          Question becomes : does it work only with Jurgen's posts ? ;-)

          • Mar 28 at 09:23 AM

            No. You can like one of my blog posts and then you get the access to the secret area! ;-)

            • Mar 28 at 10:36 AM

              Argh, the secret area of SDN, I'm tempted.

              But I'm stronger than that. I will wait for the next SP ;-)

    I can see 4 missions in my profile:

    1. Blogger

    2. Hello World! (with a link to Navigating Blogger Levels in the New SAP Community)

    3. Ripple Effect (...a rippling effect on the community when you publish a blog post.)

    4. Solver

    First 3 missions are somehow related to blogging and only last mission is related to answering questions, even "Hello World!" is about blogging!

    Still marketing "more blogs" goal???

      I have those 4 as well, and an additional (allready "earned") one name "Member of the Month 2017".

      And I saw Jamie Cantrell has a "SAP TechEd 2017 Attendee Barcelona"-one.

      Nice to see missions back!

  • Mar 28 at 11:25 AM

    That's too funny!

    After noticing that there are no missions available for me (thanks for the "motivation"), although I surely have participated in Q&A, I checked the rules for the "Onboarding" missions and tried to navigate to the "Role Overview" there, because that's what I'm expected to do. And now I see:

    No, I'm not really looking for anything.

    But it seems it's still SAP who are on a mission... – and the "Solver" badge has yet to be earned.

    Hi Steve, all, yes missions are coming of the shadows! Announcement will be posted soon. We're holding off because we know have an issue with refreshing the My Missions page if you are on the Available or Earned tab. Want to fix that first (and the link on Hello World description).

  • Mar 28 at 12:19 PM

    I noted this morning about that. Really nice to have the missions back!!! I think the community will back to be engaged again.

  • Mar 28 at 01:49 PM

    Going again through the "Blogger" mission makes no sense if you already have several blogs published...

  • Mar 28 at 02:00 PM

    Whenever I follow the "My Missions" link from the avatar pop-up (to this page - https://www.sap.com/missions.html), I keep getting this:

    Is it possible to stop this happening? I've not seen it before on Community pages.

    (Actually I hate these things in general, and would love to stop it on *all* SAP pages, but that's a different discussion...:-)

    • Mar 28 at 02:36 PM

      LOL, at least we're all on a "have fun" mission:)

      • Mar 28 at 02:39 PM

        Is there a badge for that?

        • Mar 28 at 03:02 PM

          I think so, it's called "Goodbye World!", but you can only get it after liking my upcoming first blog. Still TBD.

    • Mar 28 at 04:30 PM

      Maybe what you want to have is a browser-addon like uMatrix! SAP (and other sites) is trying to track us with a lot of 3rd-Party resources, which these addons can block (without breaking the functionality).

      [I'd like to provide a Screenshot, but currently the upload doesn’t seem to work for me :-( ]

      best

    If you go to a country homepage other than the US one (like the UK homepage - https://www.sap.com/uk/index.html), the avatar pop-up menu doesn't have the "my missions" entry.

    I guess this and my previous comment should be posted elsewhere, but since there's no official announcement yet, and since Caroleigh Deneen is here already, maybe this will do?

    • Mar 28 at 03:16 PM

      Hi Steve, The update to the avatar menu on the country sites is in the works. Thank you for noting it. We were able to resolve the issue with the My Missions reload, so I have posted an announcement about mission go-live here: https://blogs.sap.com/2018/03/28/missions-are-back/

    • Apr 03 at 03:01 PM

      Hi Steve Rumsby, My Missions (or the translated equivalent) has been added to the avatar flyout menu on the country sites. You should see it now from the UK home page (https://www.sap.com/uk/index.html) and others.

        I have also experienced this in some early testing - it seems very much tied to the inconsistent single sign-on problems we have been experiencing since the launch. You can have your avatar in the header after forcing a login, but going to another community area may or may not show your picture, and the 'My Missions' seems to only appear (rightfully so) when it confirms you are actually logged in (which is not always reflected in the appearance of your avatar or other user menu items).
