As the first step in the decommissioning of sasCommunity.org the site has been converted to read-only mode.


Here are some tips for How to share your SAS knowledge with your professional network.


Features of sasCommunity.org

This page is intended to be a list of the features of SASCommunity.org. Each feature is a link to another page where documentation about the intent of the feature is described. Please use the discussion tab of this page to discuss new features or add another feature to the list and start a new page to document the intended use or implementation of the feature. Again use the discussion tab to talk about a feature and try to add alternatives to the page rather than just erasing an earlier author's text!

Features

User Blogs Feature

User blogs are provided once you are logged in. Each user has a "my blog" link at the top of the page.

User Home Page Feature

User home pages are provided to every registered user. Click on your username at the top of the page to get to your homepage.

FAQ Wiki Feature

This will be a wiki feature. We will use articles tagged with multiple categories to create a browseable index.


User Registration Feature

Email addresses will be collected and confirmed for registered users. Additional information may be a feature for a later version of the site. See also Registration Profile Feature

Provider's Registry Feature

This is also a set of wiki pages at this time.

Presenters' Uploads Feature

We will be able to handle file uploads and have created a category for presentations. We're working on adding a virus scanner now.

Job Registry Feature

A forum for job postings has been created. Multiple forums can be created as needed.

Archived video Presentation Feature

This should be possible but will depend on disk storage requirements and may need a non-browser based upload facility (like ftp) to accomplish.

SAS Journal Feature

TBA: A Journal workspace will be created to handle this.

Site Search Feature

Search is built in for all wiki content.

Mailing List Manager Feature

NOT IMPLEMENTED YET - this will probably not be in the first release and needs further discussion.


UserGroup websites

This can be done with categories or with namespaces. A single new namespace with categories for each group may be the best solution.


Forums Feature

Implemented for this site. There will not be integration with support.sas.com forums.

Survey Feature

TBA

User Group Voting Feature

TBA

Live Webcast Feature

This is outside of the scope of the first release of the site. A streaming server and video facilities will warrant further discussion.

Archives of User Group Proceedings Feature

This can be done. The site has been set up to host non-wiki content as well.

Integration of non-wiki content into wiki search will need considerable work and needs more discussion.

Archives of SAS-L Feature

This can be done. The site has been set up to host non-wiki content as well.

Integration of non-wiki content into wiki search will need considerable work and needs more discussion.

Calendar Feature

TBA


Bugs

There is also a Bug Page
