If you're using SAS Enterprise Guide and you're not using custom tasks, you're missing out! Custom tasks are new features you can plug in – features that weren't originally packaged with the software.
Did you know there are dozens of tasks available for you to download and install? These tasks provide all sorts of capabilities, including new analysis and reports, productivity tools for programmers and utilities that help you to manage your projects. Many of these tasks also work with the SAS® Add-In for Microsoft Office.
In this session, you'll learn what custom tasks are available and how you can download and install them. You'll also see a few of the tasks in action as part of a live demo. Specific topics include:
- What are custom tasks, and how are they different from (and similar to) built-in tasks?
- How to download, install and control access to custom tasks.
- A quick look at creating your own custom tasks.
