I hope some of you were able to attend Renee Harper's Super Demo "Tips for Getting the Most Out of support.sas.com" at SAS Global Forum 2014. A few tips surprised users at the conference. Here's a chance to see if any of them surprise you!

Enhancements to support.sas.com will continue throughout the year. Look for announcements in this newsletter and on the site itself.
