Where to find the correct list of primary tags and how to follow them

Hi all,

for about 3 hours I'm trying to find and follow my new primary tags now. Unfortunately I only found one tag out of three which is "PLM Product Lifecycle Management". I tried to follow also

  • PLM Product Lifecycle Management (DMS)
  • SAP Easy Document Management

But they cannot be found even when using "Browse community".

It seems that there are not all tags available now for selection. When will all the tags be in the system and maybe it would be great to have a sample way to get a list of all available tags and a "Follow" button beside the tag.

At the moment it is really frustrating!

The "Browse community" function does not allow you to browse tags but rather "community pages". From those community pages, at the bottom of the right column, you'll find a "See all content on" section. That is a list of relevant tags. You can then follow those links to the tag pages and follow the tags. You can't follow these community pages directly.

As far as I know right now, the only way to browse the tags themselves, to be able to follow them, is via the spreadsheet mentioned above by Jerry Janda. Although how you get from the tag name to its page is still a bit of a mystery to me. It would be nice if the spreadsheet had the links...

Agree. I believe there needs to be an easy/easier way to get to a specific Q&A topic than that...

I browse community, I do not see "See all content on" section on the bottom of the right column.

this is a mess

From the "browse community" page, search and follow a link to one of the matching "community pages". You should see "See all content on" on that page. If you don't, that might be a bug (I don't think there should be community pages without matching tags).

I found the Community, which is the main TAG (or whatever its called) for the whole set of other sub-tags(per the mentioned spreadsheet), but I can't see/find any of the sub-tags to follow.

So, if I followed the community page (main tag) - does that mean I'm now subscribed to the whole thing ? (all q&a, blogs etc) related to that tag ?

OK, now I'm confused. I didn't think you could follow a community page, only tags. And I thought the browser only took you to community pages, not tags. So I suspect we're both confused in different directions and reality is somewhere in the middle. Either way, there's no doubt that "confusing" is the right word...

We'll get it, I'm sure.

maybe I'm getting old and technology has moved on, but this "new" design is confusing and illogical to me right now... maybe I'll catch up :)

I was *struggling to find appropriate English word* flabbergasted when I came across that suggestion to download, of all things, AN EXCEL with all tags :) Since the "tag" is supposed to be the new king, where is the "tag application" - to work with them?

Hi Steve,

you saved my day. Maybe it should a little bit less complicated to follow a tag.

But it seems like so many things in SAP: if you know it, minutes if you do not know hours of desperate searching.

There is an Excel spreadsheet with the available primary tags at: http://go.sap.com/community/about/using-tags.html. If you scroll down to the Primary Tags section, you'll see a link for downloading.

I hope that helps.

spreadsheet - really ?
why isn't this integrated into the site and easy to search/follow ?

I think that's still to come. :)

Hi Moshe,

no, not the questions in the old SCN. I know they went to the Archive.
I mean that I choose tag "PLM Document Management System (DMS)" and now I would expect that there is an area where I only see questions for this tag.

The tag page for your chosen tag should look like this, with a filter on the left. Does it not?

0

Seems this is not working for tags which do not have such special tag page. :-(

0

I thought all tags had such a tag page. Perhaps I've just been fortunate in the tags I've looked at so far?

0

It's working now. It seems that it simply needs a real long time to display the page when using Firefox. ;-)

0

Not for all tags, or maybe just not in Chrome, I don't know.

Hi all,

today I wrote a little UI5 app that displays all tags and enables searching. Have a look at this blog for more details.

Thanks for the hints. I was able to follow my tags now. But is there a way to filter only questions from my tags? Because at the moment it seems to me that I still see all questions.

In my "Activity stream" there are more options to filter. But from moderator point of view the information provided here is not fine. Because for example I do not see how many replies already exists for a question.

Hi Christoph,

You mean the question you posted in the old SCN?

I am also for some crossroad Questions & Answers page with all "primary tags" (used to be Spaces on SCN). Or something like that... The same goes for Blogs, but I am not sure how they are categorized, also by "primary tags"?

To better understand: lets say I am mainly interested in "ABAP Development", but I am not sure which tag/s to follow now.

HI Tomas, You can click the Follow button on the top of this page to follow the tag, ABAP Development:

http://go.sap.com/community/tag.html?id=833755570260738661924709785639136

Hi Caroleigh, thank you for the link. If I want to, how can I get to this page through navigation/search? I can not find a way to get there...

0

Hi Tomas, in the universal header, you would go to Community -> Browse the Community to get to a list of the tags for which there are topic pages. Please note only 102 of the tags of topic leader pages, but most of the most popular ones are there, and ABAP Development is one of them. We are working on a better way to get to the tag page for every tag.

Please follow the Menu: Community->Questions & Answers, then you will see all the tags you followed at the right bottom cornor, click the tag you want to filter based on and you will get the content specific to that tag only, hope this is what you are looking for.
