Beta Feedback Recap

We’ve collected a tremendous amount of feedback throughout our Open Beta period. While we cannot implement every suggestion or request, we certainly do our best to prioritize those that have the most impact on providing the best possible user experience. You can still submit new ideas for how we can improve the SAP Community.
