SE80 - How can "Workbench News" get maintained and displayed?

1535 Views Last edit Jan 19, 2018 at 11:33 AM 2 rev

Hi All!

We recently upgraded to NW 7.50 with EHP8 and SE80 now shows a lot of empty "real estate" under the heading "Welcome to the ABAP Workbench" as long as the box for "Display Workbench News" is checked:

When the box is not checked, the systems are setup to link to and display our programming guidelines (implemented via an enhancement for Class CL_WB_INITIAL, Method SHOW_CONTROLS).

After the upgrade, the box was checked again by default in the settings and developers need to delete it manually in order to once again see the guidelines. Is there a means to actually display some information on the initial SE80-screen of how to change the setting? We have a lot of developers in our systems and it's not really possible to reach all of them via email, so a message which isn't easily overlooked on this screen would help to get the word out.

I already tried to find some how-to information but wasn't successful, possibly due to using the wrong search terms.

Thanks for any pointers you have!
