If you answer questions in our forums, thank you! We see and appreciate your activity. This post is all about helping you multiply your influence while reassuring newbie SAS users and new community members you know your stuff.
Our platform provides two simple ways to establish your credibility and spread your SAS knowledge. A couple of easy steps and you're done.
Step 1: Put an auto signature at the bottom of your posts.
Everytime he posts in the community, his signature appears:
To create your personal signature:
Sign in to your community account.
Go toMy Settings>Personal Profile>Personal Information.
Enter your signature text in theSignaturebox. (Yes, you can use HTML and photos in your signature.
Step 2: Build out your community bio.
You can tell other community members as much or as little about yourself as you want. You can enter a short biography, your location, your interests, or anything else (within community guidelines, of course).
Go toMy Settings > Personal Profile > Personal Information.
Enter information about yourself in theBiographyfield. You can also enter your name, location, company info, and any other information you want to share.
Important: make sure that you change your Privacy settings so that everyone can see your biography!

ClickPreferences > Privacy.
Setshow private information in profile totoAll.
PRO TIP: You can enter simple HTML coding in the Biography field to include elements like bold text, links, and more. If you know how to write simple HTML, just enter the tags like the expert you are. If you don't know HTML, here's a trick. Open a new browser window and use the communities site to create a new discussion message. Enter your bio information and format it the way you like. Instead of clicking Post, click to the HTML tab and copy the HTML code -- then paste it into your Biography field. That's an easy way to get a good looking bio with no hassle! (And yes, the Biography field shows a note that says "No HTML allowed" -- that's there only to scare off the timid -- your simple HTML will work.)
