answer lost after submit

To whom it concerns,

When I submit my answer, it is lost. When I submit it again, the answer is submitted but duplicated. This is intermittent issue but I find the patterns below.

step 1:

I write the answer to a question.

step 2:

I click on Submit your answer, it jumps to Find Questions & Answers. This is weird so I check the same question again.

step 3:

I open the same question, but my answer is not there!!!

I do not have a screenshot for it.

step 4:

I paste my answer to the question and submit again.

It does not just to "Find QUestions & Answers".

It stays at the same question, my answer is posted in it but duplicated.

I do not have a screenshot for it.

step 5:

I delete my answer. and add it again.

This time it works fine. My answer is added and not duplicated.

I have answered several question. I believe I experienced this issue 3 times including this one.

Hope it helps fix it.

Even I am facing the same.

Patterns I noticed.

- Write answer and submit.

- It does not list answer under the question

- Click on answer button again, some time it ask you to load the draft, If you do click on Load draft, Nothing actually appears in text box, So I type answer again.

- Click Submit

- Old text as well as new text would be submitted together.

So Instead of deleting the entire answer, I edit the answer and remove the duplicated part.

You can see the revision made to answers. :)

Yup, the fix should be "in the works"

I have another example.

I submit answer and it goes to SAP Answer directly.

I navigate to the question and but answer is not there.

Luckily, I have a copy and I paste my answer again, then it is updated in the question but the answer is duplicated.

Hi Spencer,

We are aware of this issue and working on resolving it.

Thanks for the updated.

I think this issue still happens occasionally.

Some days ago, one colleague told me he got the problem. I had to ask him to reply again.

Today, I got the same issue -- when click 'submit the answer', the page navigates to the 'question and answer' page, instead of going to the question display page. So I know the problem happens again.

So I went to the same question page, input some words and click 'submit your answer' button. This time, it navigates to this question display page, with both replies I input. In this way, my reply is not lost. Or else I have to input it from the beginning again.

Seriously, I think maybe we need a 'game guide' as workaround. This will help a lot before we are sure the issue won't happen again.

Best Regards, Corrine
