Idea Place will freeze starting Friday, September 15, as its content begins migration to the Customer Influence site -- meaning you'll be unable to use Idea Place Product Sessions starting on that date. This migration will end on Monday, September 18. From that point on, eligible ideas in the SAP Community Idea Place session will be available in Customer Influence, and you'll go to that site to vote for and submit suggestions for features for SAP Community. You won't be using Idea Place Product Sessions any longer, and any bookmarks for Idea Place Product Sessions pages will redirect to the appropriate areas within Customer Influence.
For the most part, all of the SAP Community ideas (which will be called "improvement request (IRs)" in the new site) will make the move, and the status options in Customer Influence will be fairly similar to those you've seen in Idea Place. There are, however, some changes. For example, the Archived, For Future Consideration, and Needs More Info statuses are being retired. Ideas with one of those statuses won't migrate.
Beyond that, Submitted, Acknowledged, Under Review, Accepted, Planned, Already Offered, Delivered, and Not Planned will remain pretty much the same. Existing ideas with those statuses will migrate to Customer Influence.
To those of you who participated in Idea Place -- submitting suggestions, voting on features, and commenting about the ideas -- thank you so much. We hope you'll continue to keep the ideas...er...IRs...coming in Customer Influence. And if you never used Idea Place, we hope you'll get involved with Customer Influence and share your ideas.
I mean IRs.
That's gonna take some getting used to...
Oh, one last thing: If you'd like to influence...um...Customer Influence, you can submit your IRs (hey, I'm getting better at this!) for:
