Possible to get the old SCN back ?

Is it possible to provide the choice to an individual user where they want to go instead of shoving something down someone's throat.It will be a good idea to make both new and the old SCN available at the same time and based on the user acceptance gradually unify it.

    Hi Sam

    This is a common reaction at the moment in our community. We all want the old due to the pain of the new. Unfortunately, it's like a lot of implementations - once you cutover you decide to hit to the point of no return and so the only option is to move forward. And like many projects we all find ourselves on, sometimes there are business reasons that "force" to go live. In this case, there was the need to migrate off the Jive platform (Jamie mentions this).

    There was a form of UAT in Beta. This is where the community was encouraged to get on board and try the platform and provide feedback. It was a challenge to get people in there and using it regularly (beyond doing minimum for a badge). Adding to that, the business justifications to go live - the community team had to make a decision as to whether or not there was a minimum viable product. Based on criteria, the answer was yes. But the improvement will still come.

    Jamie Cantrell from the community team wrote a pretty good reply about what comes next: http://answers.sap.com/comments/35085/view.html

    But in relation to "why can't we return" or "why can't it be used in parallel", the comes back to being a completely different platform and the data was migrated across.

    I know this community platform has more pain points than any of us want but I am optimistic that the SAP team will have the control to improve.

    If you feel this is forced down your throat then you have to ask yourself whether or not you want to continue to be part of the community. If you chose yes, then you have opportunity to be part of the improvement by continuing to use the platform and provide feedback/ideas. If you don't want to then that's your decision. But for many of us, we know Community will improve and there is no better alternative. To us, the community is more than just he platform.

    Regards

    Thanks
