Selectively choose content based on followed tags?

Hi,

What is the point of following tags if you can't selectively choose those tags and their content ? The only option I see under activities is show content from all tags. Am I wrong ?

To clarify, I want to be able to go straight to a list of my followed tags(subjects) and then selectively choose what to browse from that.

Thanks

Activity stream is a mess - needs far more filter options including separation of followed tags to make sense of it all.

They should also allow you to specify your own filter(tag) in the activity stream.

Hello Nelis,

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. I wanted to share with you that the filter in the Activity Stream is currently not working as expected. You can read about the major current known issues here:

https://blogs.sap.com/2016/10/17/community-known-issues/

As soon as we are done taking care of the priority one items such as Search and Migration issues, we will start implementing the fixes required for these current bugs. I also agree with you that implementing a tag and language filter in the Stream will greatly increase the functionality of the stream. However, some one else beat you to this idea! It has been recorded here: https://ideas.sap.com/D37776

Kindly use the Idea Place channel to submit any new suggestions and ideas.

Funny, I just made the same request in response to the question "What do you think about our new Q&A Platform"

Hi,

I already posted the same as idea to https://ideas.sap.com/D37764 and got the reply that this is already offered by the "Activity stream". :-)

There also is an idea on sort of a "dashboard" for the followed tags: https://ideas.sap.com/D37840

Personally, I never followed the whole space on SCN before (which would be equivalent of following a tag now) because the amount of information was overwhelming. But I agree that activity stream right now is simply unmanageable. Even with the few activities I have there it's a struggle to scroll and the existing filters don't work that well.

I have followed entire spaces before, but typically used the Content tab to see all relevant content for my personal space topic(s) of choice. When the open SCN beta space started to heat up, then I started living in the 'Track in Communications' feed like my uber-Moderator colleague Mike Appleby. Trying to emulate that with the 'Using SAP.com' tag leaves plenty to be desired for several 2 week sprint cycles.

Feedback requests for a Tag Cloud and including search filter and selectable tag drill down, combining tags (both managed tags and user tags) was also provided in several cases. Goodbye spaces...

We have tags (we had them before with Jive although they just weren't fully leveraged, appreciated, needed, etc.?) but using them beyond authoring new blogs and discussions (I always struggle to say Q&A, Answers, Questions) is currently insufficient to properly take advantage in this unstructured tag world that transcends organized spaces.

I just tried searching the discussion archive (first link ^^) but got a nasty gram error, perhaps others will find more success: https://archive.sap.com/discussions/search?searchTerm=tag%20cloud

You need only the mention of "Tag Cloud" in the Open Beta space, right? Here you are :)

https://find.sap.com/s#n=1&f=SOURCE%3Asap%20community%20network%20%28scn%29%2BCOMMUNITY%3ASCN%20Open%20Beta&t=%22tag%20cloud%22&p=scn&repo=srh

One of the links does not work (ironically, it is SCN Beta Feedback List - I cannot find it with https://onedx.find.sap.com either).
