This is the community forum for SMA Technologies' customers to exchange solution and product ideas for the full suite of SMA products.
A few small forum rules:
- Please do not bundle multiple requests into a single idea.
- Vote on ideas you want prioritized instead of every idea you like. There are many good ideas. We want to know which are considered the most critical.
- Be respectful in all ideas and comments submitted.
- Awaiting approval: all new ideas will be approved by SMA Technologies' Product Management team before they are displayed on this forum.
- Collecting community feedback: ideas which have been reviewed by SMA Technologies' Product Management team but require more feedback. We are looking for additional votes as well as comments from our global user base.
- Development backlog: all ideas which have been prioritized by SMA Technologies' Product Management team and are either in queue or are currently being developed.
- Done: ideas which were included in a shipped release.
- Declined: ideas which are no longer being considered.
