Trouble in new Community

Hi SAP Gurus,

I know we need to work & explore more to get familiar with new community & I'm continuously working on it. I think its working but in some areas I felt the improvement in new community. Like in the previous community if I wanted to know the questions & the answers as well as the informative blogs written by SAP Gurus on different places like Materials Management, Production Planning, Sales & Distribution & Financial Accounting, I got them all in one place as I need to click on activities. Right now in new community if I want to get the update from PP,MM,SD & FI, I'm not able to get the details. If I click on activities system is taking me to all the updates.

What to do if I just wanted to know the updates only the places I'm following??

Please help!!!!

Thanks & regards,

Ankur Chauhan

    You can find and bookmark the tag pages for MM, PP, SD, FI and visit them one by one - this is how I was planning to handle the situation.

    If you are interested in SD, I would also suggest to have a look at Billing and Sales tags (they get less updates than SD, but sometimes you can find useful information there as well, which is not tagged as SD).

    MM: http://go.sap.com/community/tag.html?id=477297786799213261950044802925335

    SD: http://go.sap.com/community/tag.html?id=209057551571413566377230676804921

    SD Sales: http://go.sap.com/community/tag.html?id=167431589774684563301227734202839

    SD Billing: http://go.sap.com/community/tag.html?id=102045428488054002446664744695930

    These are links, where we have a common interest. For the rest - you would better check the community pages and try to figure out if there are multiple tags for PP and FI (I kind of expect that for FI there will be more than one tag, but I had no time yet to check, sorry).

    The biggest problem with tag pages is, that people got carried away with tagging their content and in these lists you will see lots of completely unrelated content. After the worst part of the go-live is over, I hope that blog authors will have the time to re-tag their content, but right now I know there are some migration issues - probably we need to wait until this is fixed. After that, probably we will start reporting blogs and questions for incorrect tags, but right now the moderators are very busy trying to help people who are in a similar situation as you.

    The other problem with tag pages is that you cannot filter out content you are not very interested in at the moment - e.g. I am interested in S/4 HANA, but mainly in the logistics part, FI/CO I will leave for later learning. If you have a blog tagged S/4 HANA and FIN and another - S/4 HANA and SD - you will see both. What is worse - if you also load a bookmark with SD, you will also see the same blog for S/4 HANA and SD.

    Based on that, I cannot possibly suggest an easy way to choose the right combination of tags, despite that you made your preferences very clear.

    Sorry, I wish I could help you more and I wish that I could find the answer to the same question for myself.

    The activity stream is meant to be exactly what you are asking for. It shows you updates from all the people you are following and all the tags you are following. That's how it works for me. Do you think it is showing you anything else?

    • I tried with my user in three different browsers - only 22 items.

      I logged on with another P-user (mine, from 2007, never logged on to SCN since the new site launched, no followers, no following, initial Karma points - I got 11 items in the Activity stream. I am starting to see some pattern here...

      And now the really tricky question: how a brand new user, which follows no tags and no other people sees activities of people liking, commenting and up-voting?

      Fascinating...

    SAP wanted us to be more active in the community. By making it weird and incomprehensible, thay have us talking more about it. Their strategy works ;-) Or not ? I liked the SCN landing page. Is there something equivalent now ? I didn' see it yet. So, am I going to get more involved. Probably not because it looks more complicated to navigate around in here !!
