 Watch the webinar


This session gives you a quick, convenient overview of new functionality and enhanced features of the software’s latest release. Learn about the updates in SAS Visual Analytics 7.3, including giving you the ability to:


  • Access sample tables, reports and an exploration from the home page (if you have SAS Visual Analytics Explorer).
  • Import data from a Pivotal HAWQ database.
  • Print content that does not appear on the screen.
  • Specify the default appearance of SAS Visual Analytics Viewer.


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


  1. 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.


  1. ­What kind of ESRI support you have under 7.3? ­

­Visual Analytics is mainly using ESRI as the mapping background.


  1. 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.


  1. 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.


  1. ­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.­
