  What is a Wiki?WIKI is a collaborative website frequently updated by the SCN members in relation to multiple SAP topics .Containing up to date how-to-guides, step by step instructions and rich variety of contents.
The Wiki is also perfect for virtual projects. And the best thing is: The Wiki is easy to use. You don't need to know Wiki markup language, a simple online editor allows you to format and structure your pages and additions nicely and attach all kinds of files for a project. The wiki consists of "spaces". A "space" is the name for a group of pages (parent page and its children) under a certain topic.In order to view the full list of wiki spaces please go to the Wiki Dashboard. Visit the Wiki sandbox  to try everything yourself. Please visit Wiki FAQ for more useful information.
