What are the program phases?

Phase 1 of our gamification is delivered with the 1811 release. Gamification is a new integration for the S/4HANA Cloud Community. We will continue to optimize the program and release new rewards, features and functionality throughout the lifetime of the program. We are already working on additional features for the 1902 release.

What is the leaderboard?

The leaderboard will be on the Community homepage and will keep a running list of our top Community contributors based on points earned. Community participation creates valuable community content and keeps the Community engaging. Contributors will be recognized and rewarded for their activity by earning a spot on the Leaderboard. The Leaderboard is located on the Community homepage bottom right. 

How do I earn a spot on the leaderboard?

We like your competitive spirit! The users with the most Community activity, earned the most points will be recognized on the Leaderboard. The top 10 users will show up on the Leaderboard on the Community homepage. The leaderboard will be automatically refreshed as users earn points. if you don’t make the top 10, the leaderboard still calls out your current position (if you are within the top 10,000). Make sure to upload your profile picture so we can see you on the Leaderboard!
