How it works and what we check

  1. Initial response: SAP continuously checks your requests and provides an initial response via the status "Acknowledged". This indicates the request is understood and in the right session. It does not reflect any sort of planning status. The request is now open to other community members for voting.
  2. Qualified response: Once the voting threshold is achieved, SAP evaluates the requests in more detail. Depending on a variety of factors, incl. strategic fit, technical feasibility, existing commitments, backlog and capacity, a request receives a more specific response indicating if the request is accepted short-term or planned long-term for example. A valid response may also be a "Not planned" if above criteria are not met. Such proceeds will give you more planning security.
  3. Request delivered: Once the request is delivered, SAP will indicate the delivery via the corresponding status "Delivered" and delivery release. If a solution already exists for a requested functionality, this is generally indicated via "Already Offered".

2. and 3. are typically processed as part of a dedicated and more focused review phase, currently running on a quarterly basis. Additionally, the sessions communicate latest progress and deliveries.
