You can reach any user's profile by clicking on his/her name anywhere it appears, or via search. If you know the username (the nickname chosen by the user at registration), you can get to his/her profile by typing people.sap.com/ followed by the username.
Based on their user roles, SAP employees will automatically see the SAP logo as part of their profiles. A moderator will see an "M" logo, and SAP Mentors will see the logo for the SAP Mentors program.
If you had an existing user account on SCN, the system will automatically update some of your information – such as how long you've been a member of the community and your username.
You'll also see the content you've created (blog posts, questions, and answers). Click on any content element to view it in its entirety.
Previous reputation information will be migrated with the new system as a snapshot taken a few days before the new community launches. You'll be able to see all your badges, your points, and the membership level you've attained through the SCN gamification program. The new community will launch with new missions and badges, which will also appear on your profile once you earn them.
In addition, your profile shows your social circle, including people who were following you on SCN and the ones whom you were following. To find more information about them, simply click on their profile pictures.
You can follow other people by clicking on "Follow" on their profiles. You can also send them direct messages if they are following you.
