Hello,



my feedback so far:
-Text editor is cruel, at least in IE. Why does Enter not work for line break but only Shift+Enter (even that I have to press twice to achieve a line break)?
-The tags...crazy. Almost never find what I am looking for (e.g. using Bug, Feedback...)

This man nailed it: https://twitter.com/leblancstartup/status/466638260195041280?lang=de

-The profile page is not working correctly. I open Community and my profile. It says, there are no external accounts linked. Yet in my profile, I have a LinkedIn link saved.It also doesn't save the country or region setting, sometimes I'm logged in, sometimes not, sometimes with region US, sometimes without any region. After switching the region, it seems to be saved only for this session....

I have the same issue with threads I participate in... I have to search endlessly to see if I can find the original threads or if I get lucky and just happen to come across them again.

My comment here was incorrect. In the absence of strikethrough font, I am putting it in brackets. (Doesn't seem right to just delete it...)

<<You will get a notification if your answer is accepted as the best answer. But otherwise, activities on the threads you've submitted an answer for will show up in your "followed activities" stream.>>

It's not true Audrey.

You get a notification in the stream if someone react (downvote/upvote) your answer or comment it.

Other answers are not tracked as well comments to comment to your answer (or comment).

I.e.

Your Answer

1-- Comment -> go in stream

1.1 --- Comment -> not in stream

Another answer -> not in stream

To have them in stream you have to follow the question (and still i'm not sure it fully works!).
Even more, if you create a question/discussion, in your stream you do not have comment 1 or 1.1! Just the 1st level ones.

Yes, notifications don't seem to work as before. Previously, if you replied to a discussion, you automatically subscribed to any updates in it. This would be preferable way for me. I can't remember to subscribe to ever question I answer to. And for some reason people tend to follow up by posting another answer instead of using a comment to your answer. Also I'd like to see other answers and comments posted on the same question.

Hey Hendrik,

"regarding this: -The profile page is not working correctly. I open Community and my profile. It says, there are no external accounts linked.

You just added your linkedin link to the elsewhere section, but that is completely different from linking a social account to your SAP account.

In the elsewhere section of the profile you can add any URL that you think.

As for linking social accounts, when you are presented with the login screen (in a browser where you do not have SSO for your company user), you can click on either of the 4 main social platforms (FB, G+, LinkedIn, Twitter) and link them to your SAP account. This would mean that if you are logged in to your FB (that you linked to your SAP account), if you would navigate to an SAP site, you would be logged on with your linked SAP account without additional login effort automatically.

Best,

Gabi

Thank you Gabi and Audrey for answering.


@Audrey: No notification although my answer was marked Best by the thread creator.

The "Followed activities" shows updates from all people I follow or questions etc. I get lost because it's so many items.
The profile section gives a better overview, that's right.


@Gabi: I tried your advice from within SAP but to no avail. Why would I disable SSO? I don't want to look up yet another tutorial just to add a simple link to my profile.

It's just another slowdown...I'm still waiting for the excitement with the new community because it's just too many obstacles

Hendrik,

Oops, you're right. You don't get a notification when your answer is marked as accepted (best answer). However, on your profile a little green check mark appears on your accepted answer in the Answers section.

I will correct my other comment here.
