Dear SAP S/4HANA Cloud users,

We are currently in another “Review” phase for Customer Influence for SAP S/4HANA Cloud. This means that all improvement requests which have met the respective voting threshold of each area, will be reviewed and evaluated.

By end of April, the reviewed requests should be maintained with an individual status.

So far, we have been receiving 670 improvement requests and many votes which show us which enhancements and functionalities you are most interested about.

For transparency, below you can find an explanation what each status means:

Submitted: the initial status of your idea

Acknowledged: SAP confirms, your request is in the correct session and we’ve received your idea

Under Review: your idea has reached the voting threshold and is currently under review

Accepted: your idea has been “accepted,” and it is being considered for development

Planned for Portfolio: your idea has been “accepted” but requires a larger development capacity. We are planning to include it in an upcoming release (the standard SAP planning horizon is 4 quarters)

Not Planned: your idea will not be included in the product; this is usually because of product strategy, architectural or design issues, or customer-specificity of the request

Already Offered: the functionality is already included in the product

Delivered: we have included your requested functionality in the product

In the following we have listed all improvement requests from each area which have been positively answered, meaning the status is set to “accepted”, “planned for portfolio”, “delivered” or “already offered”:
