Have you heard the news?

Have you heard? We have newly designed SAP Help Portal pages! Based on research and customer feedback, we have developed some cool features, renovated the look and feel, and improved performance to give you a great experience. We have intuitive navigation, faster page loads, simplified usability, integrated the What’s New Viewer, and more.

Check out the new pages

When you visit the SAP Help Portal, select Try out the new pages on the top right of any page. Check out our new pages and Tell us what you think. Your feedback is what drives and shapes a better Help Portal experience.

If you miss your old help pages and want to go back, select Go back to the old pages at the top right of the page. But you'll be missing some cool new enhancements. At the end of March, we'll switch to the new design permanently. But we want to give you some time to get comfortable with the changes.
