Here’s a sampling of the questions in the Q&A segment held at the end of the session.


How do we access Environment Manager? Is this included with SAS Visual Analytics 7.3?­


You should be able to access the Environment Manager from a web address that is configured as part of the SAS Foundation and SAS Visual Analytics installation. If you do not see it check with your administrator.



What kind of ESRI support you have under 7.3? ­


Visual Analytics is mainly using ESRI as the mapping background.


Will the VA upgrade cost require additional license fees?


Upgrades are covered as part of your renewal, so there is no additional license fee for an upgrade.


I am missing some icons on my SAS Home (ie: Data preparation, Report Viewer). Why is this? I am the admin and have all privileges.­ ­


It may have been deleted somehow. Double check the settings, home, application shortcuts settings to see if they are not set up for your home page view.


­Is it true that with the Classic view in VA 7.3 you can export, but not in the modern­ view?


Yes, that is true.­
