Migration of notification threads required

Hello,

in the old SCN, our development group had two notification threads [1], [2] to subscribe to announcements regarding our products.

They can be found read only in the archive, but they are no longer functional.

We can not post new announcement to notify our user base. Creating a replacement would have two issues. All those interested would need to re-subscribe and we can not notify them to do so. Also the URL would be different. The URLs of the threads have been used in a huge number of documents and SAP notes.

Please advice

Rolf-Martin

    Hello Rolf-Martin,

    as far as I know no content from the archive will be migrated into the q&a system. If you want to post updates, I don't think you have another choice but to re-create those discussions as new content. Maybe a blog?

    Currently there is no email notifcation available. And since everything was moved to another platform, your user base probably needs to subscribe to your news pages again anyway.

    Regards,

    Steffi.

    Hello Rolf-Martin and Melanie,

    For now, I would suggest creating wiki pages to provide such notification announcements. Neither blogs nor Q&A are appropriate formats for that sort of content.

    Users can then watch the wiki pages to receive notifications.

    Hello Steffi,

    unfortuately, it was not clear to me that the notification pages would be archrived. Logically, I thought they would be transformed to blogs and that there are at least redirections from the old to the new pages. We had redirections in all of the platform changes before. But there is no possibility of redirection?

    • Hello Melanie,

      I don't know. That's something I can't answer. Maybe someone from the SCN team can help you with that.

      I think, only (non-jive) documents were turned into blogs. This was a discussion, though, a normal thread and all of those (with at least one reply) went into the archive.

      Regards,

      Steffi.
