Welcome to the Continuous Influence Session for SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition, Environment, Health, and Safety Management!

Dear SAP Customers/Partners,

We’ve now launched the customer influence site for SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition, Environment, Health, and Safety Management and we would like to extend a warm welcome to all of you.

We’ll use this community platform to collect your ideas to improve the product experience of our SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition, Environment, Health, and Safety Management.

We encourage you to submit your ideas and vote for the proposals of others if you find them useful yourself. We’ll review the submitted ideas that reach 5+ votes.

Please note: This customer influence site excludes topics related to SAP S/4HANA Cloud Private Edition and SAP S/4HANA, our on-premise offering. Further this is not the right channel for go-live critical requests or requests from customers.

We're happy to have this new way of interaction with you and we’re excited to start this journey of continuously and jointly improving the S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition, Environment, Health, and Safety Management experience.

How it works
The Customer Influence site enables you as customer and partner to directly influence the product by submitting improvement requests.

  • You can explore existing improvement requests and vote on them.
  • You can submit your own improvement requests; other customers and partners can vote on them.
  • You can comment and collaborate with other customers and partners and SAP.
  • SAP regularly evaluates the requests meeting the voting threshold for implementation and delivery. Please note on the voting threshold:
  • The voting threshold serves as an indicator for a business need helping SAP to prioritize requests.
  • A met voting threshold does not guarantee a delivery.
  • Open requests not meeting the voting threshold for a longer period of time will be closed.
  • SAP sets a status on each improvement. Each status change automatically notifies the respective parties on the request progress.

We are looking forward to improving our solution together with you!

Best regards,
SAP S/4HANA Cloud Product Management
