Dear Readers,

This month, let's give a shout-out to the folks helping improve content at  I'll bet you can use more than one of these great new features!     

  • The recently renamed Graphics focus area has been updated with new methods of graphing.
  • Now you can add items directly to the SASware Ballot.  Log in, create an idea and let the discussion and voting begin.  
  • I particularly like the Happenings tab—dedicated to information about user groups, SAS Talks and social media highlights.
  • A new Supported Operating Systems application can help untangle configuration details. Try it and tell developers what you think.
  • Lastly, be sure to answer Renee Harper's four-question poll on the SAS Support Communities features you find most useful. 

The pages in this list are just the vanguard for future changes. SAS' vision is two-fold:  for every customer support page to offer the most relevant and useful content, and for users to interact with the site and each other in a more personal and collaborative way.   

Everyone here is focused on finding new ways for you to influence development of SAS software and services. Please visit the pages you use most and enter your feedback today.  We're listening!
